Ever hear a song so good that you have to tell everyone about it? Well, this show is for you. Celebrating the soundtrack of our lives one tune at a time.

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

    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.  Stay in school kids.

    Episode 57 - I Learned the Hard Way

    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 56 - Gimme Shelter

    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?

    Episode 55 - Mr. Blue Sky

    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.

    Episode 54 - Cannonball

    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

    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.
