Popular Music: The Podcast


Jun 5, 2017

It's time to bow down to Queen Bey. Analise and Steven could have picked almost ANY Beyoncé song this week, but for this episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, they picked one of their favorites off the classic album, 4, "Love On Top." A + S chat about the circumstances surrounding the production of this great throwback and also get into the music theory nitty gritty of Beyoncé's vocal badassery through all THOSE key changes at the end.

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