Episode 119: Episode 119: 1992-dome! Tom Cochrane's "Life Is A Highway" vs. Jon Secada's "Just Another Day"


What's worse: A song you've grown to hate, or a song you've always hated? That's the quandary in our discussion of Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway" and Jon Secada's "Just Another Day." As we consider our rage, we also touch on party etiquette, ill-fitted shirts, and how to fail at McDonald's. Our theme is by Laura Barger and Jack Baldelli, and our outro is by Red Rider.

Episode 118: Carly Rae Jepsen, "Cut To The Feeling"


In what might be the most MASTAS conversation ever, a discussion of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Cut to the Feeling" leads us to '80s movies, conversational French, gazpacho recipes, and the punishing constraints of Western masculinity. All that, plus a pop chart reading for a 10-year-old! Our theme is by David Gregory Byrne, and our outro is by Hole. Want to request a song, buy a birthday chart reading, or just say hello?

Episode 117: Paul Davis, "Cool Night" and "'65 Love Affair"


Paul Davis may have been the crappiest boyfriend on 80s lite FM, but damn if his tunes aren't catchy! As we recall the moist sounds of "Cool Night" and "'65 Love Affair," we reflect on long-haired hunks, melodic sexual harassment, and raising a toast to your own nuts. Our theme is by Laura Barger and Jack Baldelli, and our outro is by Polly Jean Harvey. Want to request a song, buy a birthday chart reading, or just say hello? Email us (talkaboutsongs@gmail...

Episode mcbyp-02: MASTAS Presents: Money Can't Buy You Podcast 02, "Love Me First"


In Episode 2 of our MASTAS spin-off, Dan and Tracie and Sarah go deep into the catalogue of the original Real Housewives vanity singer extraordinaire: Kim Zolciak. After orienting ourselves with “Tardy for the Party” (music with a message!) and a clip from Kim’s legendary on-camera vocal lesson, we discuss our decision to cover “Love Me First,” a song that was not only not featured on the show, but has never been heard by anyone other than us...

Episode 116: Episode 116: Maroon 5, "Moves Like Jagger"


Is "Moves Like Jagger" a good song? Is Maroon 5 a good band? And who's the Jag of Project Runway contestants? All these questions are explored as we investigate the surprisingly durable career of a Voice coach and his buddies. Our theme is by Andrew Byrne, and our outro is by The Rolling Stones.
