Much like a game show, Mitchell and Amy ask the listeners to start a dance party with one song. Turns out, Amy just wants to sway lightly and Mitchell has all the alien dance moves that David Byrne may be able to compete with. There may be some infuriating forgetting of a certain possible punk’s first band’s name. You know, like normal.
From washboard wrestling to tubular bells, this week’s song selections remind us that hey, we are are making it and getting better at whatever it is! No matter how many times we miss the green light by just a smidge, there is always a brighter side.
Some songs are meant for kids and some songs just sound like they are for kids but maybe aren’t. Earbuddy Brandon suggested that Mitchell and Amy should tackle unexpected and alternative children’s songs. Amy uses her easily available small expert to get the child’s take and well, Ru holds no punches.
Two folks who are kinda awkward (or shy) with first dates make a show about first date songs. Amy makes the worst singles ad after tripping over her own words and Mitchell declares that he is slightly shy (what?). This show reveals all the Earbuddies’ first date tactics and feels but also gives a huge variety to add to that first date playlist!
Thank You, Kaylah, for the ideas list!
In this week’s grab bag, it was a free for all in which Mitchell perfectly described music, Amy tripped on rather simple words, and Soren Kierkegaard made up words. There are songs that sound like acid trips (allegedly) and songs that make rainbow flatus. At least one Furby was harmed in the making of this show.
Revisiting an older theme again this week with weather but a totally different collection of songs. Weather as metaphor and even songs about fog and snow! Amy was really sleep deprived and tangented more than normal. Mitchell points out how they are both indoor kids and it is likely why they like the rain so much.
