    Episode 79: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    Episode 79: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    Are you ready to get real old-timey? This week we discuss the folk and bluegrass revival of O Brother, Where Art Thou? Loosely based on "The Odyssey", Joel and Ethan Coen pulled together an all-star lineup of country musicians to score this wacky road trip through Depression-era Mississippi.

    The film is a hoot, but the soundtrack was a sensation. The album hit #1 on the charts over a year after its release, and went on to sell 8 million copies. "I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow" and "O Death" won all the awards, but the real standouts on this album come from Allison Krauss, Gillian Welch, The Whites, and more!

    So join us as we dig deep into the history of American folk music. This episode's an odyssey all on its own!

    Episode 78: Swingers

    Episode 78: Swingers

    This week's podcast is all about Vegas, baby! Well...not exactly. It's all about Swingers, which spends a grand total of 15 minutes in Las Vegas. The rest is all about idealizing modern notions of coolness all set to a soundtrack of swing and lounge revival goodness.

    Swingers was one of the pillars of the mid-90s indie film boom, and also a signpost for the toxic masculinity of the era. In between all of that is a soundtrack that Libby calls "wall-to-wall bangers". We get standards from Dean Martin and Tony Bennett, some classic country from Roger Miller and George Jones, and a healthy dose of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy for good measure. So put on your best bowling shirt and grab yourself a cocktail, cuz this episode is money, baby!

    Episode 77: National Lampoon’s Vacation

    Episode 77: National Lampoon’s Vacation

    As the summer winds down, we take one more trip down that holiday road with a look at the music of National Lampoon's Vacation! Clark Griswold's mission to drive his family to Walley World is one of the quintessential 80s comedies, with a ridiculously catchy theme song to boot!

    Lindsey Buckingham's immortal earworm "Holiday Road" anchors a soundtrack that features the likes of June Pointer, Vanity 6, The Ramones and Nicolette Larson. Larson's song "Summer Hearts" doesn't actually appear in the film, but we discovered there's a very good reason for that.

    So fasten your seatbelts and join us as we take this Family Truckster off road!

    Episode 76: Something Wild

    Episode 76: Something Wild

    This week we pay tribute to the dearly departed Ray Liotta with his first feature film, Jonathan Demme's Something Wild! It's hard to pin down exactly what this film is. Is it a road trip comedy? Is it a romantic comedy? Is it a chase thriller? Instead, it somehow manages to be all of those things. It's extremely entertaining!

    As for the soundtrack, we'll talk about a couple of the Talking Heads flying solo, we'll discuss the film's fascination with reggae and afrobeat, and we'll even reconnect with podcast favorites New Order and Oingo Boingo! So fasten your seatbelts, because you're in for Something Wild!



    SHOW NOTES:

    Episode 75: Bob’s Burgers

    This week we're celebrating all things Bob's Burgers! For twelve seasons and counting, Bob's Burgers has quietly become one of the most loveable shows on TV. It's earned that pedigree by featuring dozens and dozens of original songs. From style parodies, to homegrown ditties, to full blown song and dance numbers, this show has a musical streak a mile wide, and every song is a winner.

    So on this episode, we highlight ten songs that illustrate Bob's Burgers at its best. From the show's early days of parodying cool 70s funk to more recent numbers by resident boy band Boyz 4 Now, we'll take you on a wild ride through the world of the Belchers!



    SHOW NOTES:

    Bob's Burgers is available to stream on Hulu!

    Episode 74: Twister

    Episode 74: Twister

    Sound the alarm! It's tornado season! On this episode we look at 1996's most ridiculous disaster: Twister!

    This soundtrack features an even split of dad rock (Van Halen, Goo Goo Dolls, Soul Asylum) and mom rock (Tori Amos, Stevie Nicks, Alison Krauss). It all adds up to an album that's more thoughtfully put together than the movie it's supporting. We also dive into a little bit of Joe's past weather-related trauma, information that some of us were not ready for... So strap yourselves in, because this episode will blow you away!



    SHOW NOTES:

An exceptional podcast

I love this podcast’s premise of reviewing entire works or original soundtracks as opposed to just singular songs. Often times critics will neglect tracks in favor of focusing on more popular works in a soundtrack. This podcast does not make this mistake. I recommend it for any music lover. Oh, and Hosts are as genuine as they come!
