Round 2 - FIGHT! In this episode, we challenged each other to listen to some more albums. From classics like The Cars to newer artists such as Hop Along, we talk about a wide variety of great music! Check it out!
Ah, MTV, what happened to you? You used to play so many cool music videos. We used to sit in front of the TV with our eyes glued to the screen watching classic music videos from Madonna, David Lee Roth, Duran Duran and Pat Benatar. In this episode, we reminisce about the good ol' days when the M in MTV actually stood for something!
Oh no they didn't! Oh yes, they did. In the 70s and 80s, no one batted an eyelash when certain taboo topics were discussed. Racism? Check! Homophobia? Sure! Underage sex stuff? You betcha! It was a different time back then and now some of these topics would be frowned upon. So, buckle up snowflakes, because we take a dive into topics that would no longer be cool today.
In our last episode, we gave our ourselves a challenge: to expose each other to new music! We each picked three albums (some new and some old) and we all had to listen to them and provide commentary. Did we like them? Did we hate them? We take a deep dive into each album to discuss their qualities (and Darryl takes an oddly obsessive interest in the sound quality for some reason).
To follow along, here are the albums we reviewed (all can be found on Spotify):
Sia - 1000 Forms of Fear
The Buggles - The Age of Plastic
Toni Braxton and Babyface - Love, Marriage and Divorce
Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa
Yaz - Upstairs at Eric's
Walk the Moon - What If Nothing
Morgan James - Hunter
Jurassic - Power in Numbers
Goldfrapp - Supernature
How do you consume your music? Streaming? Radio? CDs? With a little rosemary and thyme with a sprinkle of sea salt? Today's episode is all about how music consumption has changed through the years. So drag out your old turntables and vinyl records and settle down for a nice, relaxing nostalgic journey through the last 5 decades!
