Popular Music: The Podcast


Dec 25, 2017

*Sung aloud* Last Christ-mas, *song- of-the-year* and it’s the one-we-love-most to give you some cheer! Merry Christmas Popettes! Today, to cap off our five week holiday track adventure through pop time and space, Steven and Analise go HAM on Carly Rae Jepsen’s cover of “Last Christmas.”  In this week’s episode, your hosts will talk about the original composition of Last Christmas (George Michael *insisted* on playing those sleigh bells himself) and why this cover is the perfect homage to an 80’s Christmas classic.   

 

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