AND WE WILL CRY IF WE WANT TO. In this episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Analise and Steven pick apart a song about the worst birthday EVER. The Lesley Gore hit from 1963 is full of treats, from its history (the ACTUAL birthday party it was based on), the unusual chords outside of its key, and the fact that it's really just a big F you to polite 60s society. So grab your tissues! It's your party.
No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
