At long last, the Rolling Stones get MASTAS-ized. We're talking about the folksy wisdom and iconic backing vocals of "You Can't Always Get What You Want," not to mention the value of community music, the ways that chart peaks don't always reflect quality, and the hope that America can chill out for a second.

 

Our theme song is by Andrew Byrne, and our outro is by Gary Jules. Wanna be part of the fun?

And if you want to help us keep the lights on (AND get access to bonus content), become a patron at patreon.com/mastas.

Screw daylight savings: It's always sunny at MASTAS! We're in an especially good mood this week, since we're talking about the bisexual badassery of Halsey's song "Bad at Love." We also create a playlist of musical theater songs that make us happy. We're chorus kids at heart!

 

Wanna sponsor your own playlist? Make a request? Email us at talkaboutsongs@gmail.com, FB us at facebook.com/mastas.podcast, or tweet us at @TalkSongs. Wanna hear bonus content? Become a patron at patreon.com/mastas. Digging our theme music? Our intro is by Jack Baldelli and Laura Barger, and our outro is from Broadway's own "Guys and Dolls," heard here via Margaret Whiting and Jimmy Wakely.

Your podcast hosts may actually be European gay men. We both find parts of ourselves in solo tracks by George Michael and Elton John, and then we have a blast trying to decipher the slurry vocals on their duet of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me." Meanwhile, there's a sidebar about the necessity of small acts of kindness.

And finally: Our theme song is by Jack Baldelli and Laura Barger, and our outro is by Sinead O'Connor, for reasons that will become clear as you listen.
