Listen to this episode of This Song Listen on The Apple Podcasts App, iTunes Spotify or Stitcher Read the Love Letters Column Listen to the Love Letters podcast And now, for Meredith Goldstein’s “Pleading Playlist!” George Michael was particularly incredible at writing songs about pleading for physical (or emotional) intimacy.

These are some of my favorite songs that feature George Michael asking, begging, and pleading to get love of some kind....

This Song: Devendra Banhart

EDevendra Bahnart talks about how hearing “Just Another Diamond Day” by Vashti Bunyan while busking on the streets of Paris comforted him with a feeling of motherly love that he still turns to today. He also explains how themes of motherhood, love, fear and compassion show up on his latest record “Ma.” “It’s like once you’re heartbroken, it’s not like ‘That’s it, never gonna be heartbroken again.’ Once you’re not lonely it’s not like ‘That’s it, okay I did it.’ Once you go through a day without making mistakes it’s not like ‘That’s it, end of mistakes.’ It’s this constant thing. I am constantly heartbroken and constantly anxious and lonely and so I have this thing, called art. It’s very beautiful. You have this immediately accessible comfort. This immediately accessible love.” Listen to this episode of This Song Listen on The Apple Podcasts App, iTunes Spotify or Stitcher Listen to Devendra Banhart’s new record Ma Check out Devendra Banhart’s Tour Dates Check...

This Song: Matt and Kim

EIndie electronic duo Matt and Kim talk about how “The Mullet Burden” by The Dillinger Escape Plan showed them how intense music could be. Matt: “I did not even realize that music could be as extreme as that was. Like if I thought that music could be turned up to 10 , it was like, oh wait, you could actually turn up to 12 — there’s like 2 more notches on this thing that I didn’t even know existed.” The couple also explores how they’ve tried to bring that same kind of intensity to their music, especially their live shows, the toll that intensity has taken on their bodies and what they see as the next phase in their musical lives. : Caleb Kuhl Listen to This Episode of This Song Matt and Kim are on tour celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their record Grand.
