Bonus episode! In this MASTAS Single, Mark goes solo to recommend four new songs that you need right now, including cuts from Haim, New Politics, Sara Evans, and Delta Rae. Let us know if you dig them!
There's a plaaaace for uuuuus...to wonder if the songs of West Side Story don't work better separately than as a show; to rag the soppier selections from the Sondheim catalog; to lament the film's brownface; and to discuss...Rick Springfield? Send in the clowns for an all-new MASTAS!
Today's theme song is by Andrew Byrne. Our outro is The Chairman Of The Board, Mr. Frank Sinatra. Send those song requests, ad buys, and flowers for Poor Jud to talkaboutsongs at gmail dot com, and visit our Patreon page for exclusive content!
Selling out never sounded so good! With a soldier's bravery, we investigate Starship's three number-one hits of the '80s: "We Built This City," "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," and "Sara." And you'd better believe that OUR Sarah is still crying foul about that last one. Plus, Mark has a whole Starship story that involves high-top Converse!
Our theme song is by David Gregory Byrne, and our outro music is by Jefferson Airplane. Which is kinda-sorta the same band as Starship! If you want to tell us something or request a song, then tweet at @TalkSongs or email us at talkaboutsongs[at]gmail[dot]com. Or hit us up on Facebook at facebook.com/mastas.podcast.
The tears flow freely as we discuss "The Luckiest," Ben Folds's perfect gem of a love song. We also talk about each other's weddings, the Jason Isbell concert where Mark almost left his drink at the bar, and Sarah's enduring connection to a speech in "The Opposite of Sex."
Our theme is by Andrew Byrne, and our outro is by Jason Isbell. Follow us on Twitter at @TalkSongs, and for access to top-secret bonus content, become a MASTAS sponsor at patreon.com/mastas!
