Hosted by Todd (in the Shadows) Nathanson and Alina Morgan, Song vs. Song pits two similar songs of an era against each other with controversial outcomes.
75: "Semi-Charmed Life" vs. "One Week"
Can white boys in mainstream late-'90s rock bands rap? Well they certainly tried! Which incessantly catchy flood of words was the best classic song, "Semi-Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind or "One Week" by Barenaked Ladies"?
74: "good 4 u" vs. "Happier Than Ever" (w/Mark Grondin!)
Teenage girls having breakups in 2021! We close out the year with its biggest and best angry ex songs, and we welcome Spectrum Pulse's Mark Grondin into the booth to help us decide between Olivia Rodrigo's "good 4 u" and Billie Eilish's "Happier Than Ever"!
73': "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" vs. "Wonderful Christmastime"
It's time for that age-old holiday debate: Who's your favorite Beatle? Christmastime with John and Paul as we argue for the better Beatle Christmas song, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" vs. "Wonderful Christmastime"! Will Paul's holiday cheer or John's goodwill towards man win out?
72: "Jump" vs. "Jump Around"
The year is 1992 and the pop-rap world is awash in controversy! Can we figure out which big hit song that goes "jump! jump! jump!" jumps higher? Who is the champion, "Jump" by Kris Kross or "Jump Around" by House of Pain?
71: "Blue Monday" vs. "Enjoy the Silence" (w/Joe Kwaczala!)
They're the two biggest bands of the synth-alternative movement and we're putting their very biggest defining hits against each other ! Put on your eyeliner and roll up your sleeves and welcome comedian and podcaster Joe Kwaczala into the house because we're !
70: "Karma Chameleon" vs. "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"
It's the happiest, fluffiest, gayest hit songs of the '80s! Which is the superior peppy poppy floofy Brit pop song, Culture Club's "Karma Chameleon" or Wham!'s "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"?
Great show. Flys by. I’m also super impressed that tho mrs Morgan practices a non traditional like style it doesn’t ever become the topic of the show. It’s just something he/she whatever practices but doesn’t feel the need to preach. Soood 5 star pod.
Gotta do CCR run thru the jungle vs join fogertys old man down the road. So similar it was sued over. Wonder why it was so similar 🤣
I love your show! Would you consider Incubus “Drive” vs 311 “Amber”? I’d love to hear an episode featuring 311.
Todd in the Shadows + indie bands = good!
I love Todd’s YouTube channel but always wish he’d cover more indie artists, so this podcast is a dream come true!
