This week, realizing that everyone is honing in their winter holiday playlists already, Mitchell and Amy examine songs that are not the most traditional of holiday songs. Let’s call them “nontraditional.” Parodies, earnest songs, old Ford commercials, soul classics, and emo all come up. Don’t stop revising your playlist until you have added all of these.
This week is highlighting the somewhat dumb and ridiculous songs that may be needed after the beginning of Family Holiday Season. Either we are singing these with family, or hiding in our cars playing them while avoiding conversation that can be awkward. Amy gets awkwardly square and Mitchell explains the beauty of one specific over the top pendant.
Amy’s mind is blown by all the supergroups that exist and finally has a definition of what a supergroup is. Mitchell brings all the info on who is comprising each supergroup and yes, a supergroup can have only two members. The Earbuddies bring a diverse collection of songs and Amy finally listens to a Lemmy son
This week, at the request of Earbuddy Justin W., the show is all about the handclaps (bootstomps not included.) Beware of the upbeat hoorah but mostly because it will make ya smile! Amy realizes, yet again, that Hall & Oates are not a country band and Mitchell decides that at least one song can tell him what to do. Mitchell also teaches Amy how not to use “stinky” as a musical descriptor.
Some stuff has been going down in politics for a couple of years that ranckles quite a few of us, but generally the show has not gotten overtly political. So, this week, we decided to give up the charade and go super political with an episode about political songs. Mitchell and Amy don’t hide their political views, so yeah, something you may not agree with won’t be excluded. Buckle in and let’s get political.
