Still reeling from Prince’s death, we decided to talk about some of his most famous exploits and songwriting stories – some good, some a little steal-y, some involving Michael Jackson. We love you Prince.
If you didn’t listen to last week’s podcast, check out our thank you to Prince via a cover of his song, Nothing Compares 2 U (Prince).
Profoundly sadden by the death of Prince today. He was a huge influence on us. We think nothing compares to Prince so here’s our cover of Nothing Compares 2 U written by Prince, made famous by Sinéad O’Connor.
Since the turn of the century, one word song titles have dominated the charts. Is this a result of big data and behavioral economics number crunching or is it just a advertising scheme? Have you noticed the rise of the one word song? Well we give your our take on why this is happening. Enjoy!
Deadpool is sweeping the nation. It has become the highest grossing rated “R” movie in history. Super heroes win again! With Deadpool, we’re continuing our “I Like to Score” theme (we started with episode 99. The Music of Better Call Saul).
Junkie XL is the composer (Superman vs Batman) who uses the 80s for inspiration. We talk about him and the influences he used on the score like Michael Jackson, Van Halen and the theme from Miami Vice.
#FreeKesha has been the rallying cry for many major pop stars over the past few days including Adele, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, etc. We don’t know what happened between Kesha and Dr. Luke but we do know Dr. Luke is pop’s consummate music thief.
At last night’s Grammy’s, Lady Gaga did the tribute to David Bowie. It’s a sad commentary when you can’t find a popular rock artist(s) to pay tribute to a great rock icon. Not that we don’t like Lady Gaga … but it’s more telling about the state of rock music. Which is why this week we want to talk about Coachella and the huge festivals that are creating Zombie rock bands. Trust us … this will make sense and all will be explained.
