Mitchell and Amy explore the complex world of music in television and movies, especially TV theme songs. Amy accidentally picks a song with a legacy and Mitchell brings a song from a show Amy has never seen. There are many questions. They finally got a voicemail! Mitchell has another theme idea and dares you to email firstname.lastname@example.org with submissions.
In conjunction with Little Red Bandwagon’s Song of the Summer collection, Amy and Mitchell join in the fun with an extended collection of songs that represent any and all songs of the summer. Amy finds out that Will Smith may be pretty legit, and Mitchell inches closer and closer to forgiveness for Amy forcing people to listen to Cascada’s Night Nurse. Head to your nearest pool and enjoy a bubbly cold drink while enjoying this selection.

Amy went on a road trip and asked if they could redo a classic theme from the early days of Earbuds and Earworms. Mitchell brings all the info on “Nu-grass” and they throw shade on Nu-metal. There is some Memphis history snuck in this episode and many different perspectives on what is road trip music.
This week, Mitchell and Amy explore mashups and Amy’s sleepiness may have made her a bit wacky at points. Many theories of how to make a good mashup and they have a teeny episode within the episode about music theory! Enjoy the ride and fall in love with Mashups!

Amy has just discovered Vaporwave because of Mitchell’s mild case of love for the genre (it is probably more than mild.) Jacques requested it and E&E went with it in their first ever exploration of a single genre. It has a wide range of sounds within the genre and Amy says “like” quite a bit and confuses Justice Clarence Thomas with Justice Potter Stewart.
Amy and Mitchell take very large breathes in attempt to get through titles of names and bands that are extremely long. Someone finally says the whole Fiona Apple album title; yeah, that one. The titles are long, but the songs are good, except that one song.
Mitchell threw down the gauntlet way back and Craig finally picked it up right before dismantling his podcast studio. The guys go head to head with four song picks a piece to prove their taste in music is the supreme. Amy adds a little flavor but relaxes because she didn’t have to choose a song at all this week. Vote in the poll on the Earbuds and Earworms Podcast group on Facebook to decide who wins.
Note: There were some technical difficulties in the recording of the show so be forgiving to Amy, who really only had one job.

The world of elevators as themes in music and venues of music is vast, which Mitchell and Amy soon discovered. They are now taking up residence in various elevators to archive all the music that they would either leave the elevator during or decide to push all the buttons so they can finish out the song. It is a very up and down episode, with very few forwards and backwards.
This week, in celebration of some popular movie that is out right now that a couple to a few folks like, Mitchell and Amy discuss caped crusaders in the literal and metaphorical sense. Amy learns that she now has to start a podcast feud with the podcast “Who Charted?”. Also, did Bruce Wayne really marry a porsche? A bit of Earbuddy feedback is received!
