Welcome back! Like a Mariah Carey ex, we knew you could never stay away for too long. You’ll understand that when you listen to the show. We’ve got the great Charlie Todd (Improv Everywhere, UCB) to talk a wimpy song, a clingy song, and song that will make you want to go HIGHER. We think you might kind of like it.

We’re back! After a brief but eventful hiatus including trips abroad and marriage proposals (well, one of each), we are diving back into the bottom of the music barrel to find that we’re not even close to the end of these beautiful, ridiculous dregs.
This week we are joined by the incredible Laura Willcox, who brings her very own favorite karaoke standard featuring the highest ratio of impassioned musical riffing to interesting ideas (at 10,000:0). Winston brings in a bait and switch of hard rock and emo pining & whining, and Alden brings a track that we’re pretty sure is literally about being in love with an inanimate object. Banality, whining, and unrequited love: what a way to start off our sophomore season! Join us, won’t you?
Winston’s Pick: American Hi Fi – Flavor of the Weak
Alden’s Pick: Starship – Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us
Laura’s Pick: En Vogue – Don’t Let Go (Love)
In perhaps our most aggressively dumb episode yet, we discuss songs in love with underwear, cars, songs, dumps, trucks, you know, a lot of things!
This week we’re joined by Chart Throb columnist and UCB comedian Brian Glidewell to discuss whether or not our musical pleasures should be considered guilty, even when they are vapid, inscrutable, silly, twangy or evoke the image of a silver-haired one-hit-wonder being shot out of a cannon into a giant butt. Plus, Journey and a pop-country song we can mostly agree on! Any way you want this episode, that’s the way you need it. Whatever the hell that means.
Winston’s pick: Sisqo – Thong Song Alden’s pick: Journey – Any Way You Want It
Brian’s pick: Florida-Georgia Line – Cruise
