Episode 58 - To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High)

Special guest, Diana Parry-Cruwys, finally gets another chance to pick a song of her very own with this week's "To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High) by alt-country, prolific rocker, Ryan Adams. Not the guy who sang "Summer of '69". We discuss how unlike My Bloody Valentine this song is, how hard it is to pick just one song when you write an album a year, how drugs are bad.

Episode 57 - I Learned the Hard Way

A return visit from Jack Every to the TPOS studio gets us bringing the funk. Noise may be brought as well. Regardless, we spend a pleasant time talking about the amazing Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings' "I Learned the Hard Way". What makes this modern take on the Motown sound so cool? And does anybody know how to make a hang-up click on a cell phone? We're plumbing unknown genres this week, folks! Also, a rare TV recommendation unrelated to music but correlated with deliciousness.

Episode 57 - I Learned the Hard Way

Episode 56 - Gimme Shelter

After comparing our local classic rock stations (RIP, radio), super-guest and music encyclopedia,Chris Hornbostel, and I get into the deep talk about The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter". Buy why is it an amazing song? Not just because it captures the turmoil of the 60's, not just because it's a secretly scary song, not just because of Keith Richards blusey, jazzy guitar, not just because of Mick Jagger's excellent lyrics, not just because of Merry Clayton's virtuouso performance, not just because of Charlie Watts' perfect snare beats, but...well, listen to the episode to find out. Let's celebrate the end of the peace and love era together, shall we? Please very much enjoy! If you cannot see the audio controls, your browser does not support the audio element Download Mp3

Episode 56 - Gimme Shelter

Episode 55 - Mr. Blue Sky

Rob's solo-casting it up this week with one of his personal favorite's, ELOs "Mr. Blue Sky". Listen in horror as he attempts to describe fancy orchestral words! Stare in sympathy as he consults his thesaurus to come up with new words for "awesome"! Flee from the overwhelming gushing of good vibes and joyousness! Feel happy emotions deep inside your soul as you realize that you've already started humming the chorus. Don't hide away for so long, listener: embrace the sun before Mr. Night comes to ruin the party. Please very much enjoy!

Episode 55 - Mr. Blue Sky

Episode 54 - Cannonball

Matt Summers makes a triumphant return with a song that has absolutely nothing wrong with it, The Breeders' "Cannonball". Is it true that the Ewoks provide backing vocals to Kim Deal? Is anything cooler than early-90s distortion effects? And is being a great band with an awesome single the same as being a one-hit wonder? Have a swig of this delicious shimmy shake while you listen.

Episode 53 - Imagine

While I messed up and forgot that "Imagine" was actually from the album Imagine, special guest, Terry Parretti, lifelong educator and dancer, forgives me in the name of John Lennon's message of peace, humanity, and love. We discuss what happens when we die and if it even matters, the power of music in teaching, and just how crummy the 70s were. Stay tuned until the end for some free choreography consultation.

Episode 51 - Summertime Smorgasbord

Because they did me the favor of visiting me, I forced a good 40% of my extended family into the ol' podcast studio to discuss our favorite songs about America and the summertime, but mostly the summertime. Hang ten and put your wayfarers on for a deep conversation on topics like what's the opposite of America, when's the best time to barbeque, is Dave Matthews music a substitute for Ambien, and just how awesome is a bottle of Zima? And in a They're Playing Our Song first: country music! Then a somber tangent about regret, past joys, and growing up as summer vacation hits the halfway point. Please very much nostal-joy! If you want to join us in thinking fondly about the songs we discussed, here's the final list: "It Must Be Summer" by Fountains of Wayne (Rob's choice) "Surfin' U.S.A." by The Beach Boys (Heejean's choice) "Hot Fun In the Summertime" by Sly and the Family Stone (Brendon's choice) "Summertime" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (Justin's choice) "Heavy Metal Drummer...

Episode 50 - Tongue Tied

It's the big 50th episode of the show! And I booked a bunch of young children to make noise in the background. What better way to celebrate our house party than by talking about Grouplove's "Tongue Tied". Listen to me wax philosophically about the deep, deep meanings of the song and how it taps into our collective unconscious about how crappy it is to try to get a date. Everyone else just talks about medical problems and strategies for laser tag. Thanks to everyone for listening and thanks to all our guests for sharing their songs! You all make this show a pleasure to do. Hope you all very much enjoy our anniversary! If you cannot see the audio controls, your browser does not support the audio element Download Mp3

Episode 49 - I Want To Come Over

It's Part 2 of the epic battle royale that is ETHERIDGE-OFF!! This week, I'm rejoined by Diana Parry-Cruwys who hopes to derail my assertion that the most superior song is Melissa Etheridge's "I Want To Come Over". We break all our concert plans to warble a passionate plea for all the star-crossed lovers out there before explaining the secret meanings of the too happy guitar-solo and why are is so damn sad. Remember, place your vote for Etheridge-Off on Twitter, Facebook, or in the comments below. Please very much enjoy!

Episode 49 - I Want To Come Over

Episode 48 - Come To My Window

It's Part 1 of the first ever ETHERIDGE-OFF!! Which song about intense love by singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge will be crowned the ultimate our song? Join Diana Parry-Cruwys and I in a knock-down, drag-out verbal brawl where the only rule is there are no rules. Except for the rule where we only get to say nice things about the songs we discuss because that's the point of the show. I'm starting to think this whole fight conceit isn't going to result in as much screaming and body slams as I was originally led to believe. In any case, this week Diana and I go to war over the merits of "Come To My Window". We strike on all fronts in reviewing the crazy performance of Juliette Lewis, my description of the way major chords sound, and the extra-voluminous locks of Melissa Etheridge's beautiful beautiful hair. We may have forgotten to talk about the song now that I think about it. Please very much enjoy! If you cannot see the audio controls, your browser does not support the audio eleme...
