Popular Music: The Podcast

Apr 24, 2017

SOMEBODY ONCE TOLD ME that in this week's episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Analise and Steven bring back the love for Smash Mouth's 1999 hit, "All Star." A + S ponder on what has made this song such an easy target of the 21st century (touching on the potent effect it has had on meme culture) and why the song’s “all that glitters is gold” positive mentality truly makes it a gem and a half.

No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.

Additional Recommendations:
Smash Mouth – “The Fonz”
Smash Mouth – “Disenchanted”
Smash Mouth – “Diggin’ Your Scene”
SR-71 – “Right Now”
Sugar Ray – “Answer The Phone”

*Analise would like to correct her mispronunciation of Smash Mouth’s first album, “Fush Yu Mang.” It’s Fush (rhymes with mush), not Fush (rhymes with douche). Which makes WAY more sense as a play on words when you think about it.
