This week is all about one of Mitchell’s favorite musical elements (not the la la la’s but the other element). Layered vocals creating harmonies all over the place over here. Amy also learns which band Iggy Pop was not in.
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, Mitchell and Amy get into the Way Back Machine to explore the songs of 1994 as suggested by Craig. Amy gets defiant about one stipulation from Craig with her song choice and Mitchell will later be calling the voicemail line to sharpshoot himself on which band is actually Swedish.
Amy is joined this week by her Magic the Gathering crush, Hannah Mathews. Both Hannah and Mathews are spelled the most correct way. They enjoy the amazing selection of “J” songs selected in honor of all the “J” cohosts from the Earbuddies. There are two Jacksons in the south and the one in Mississippi may have beat out the one in Tennessee for radness but it is all cool.
