Feb 5, 2018

In the FIFTIETH (!!!!) episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, your hosts Steven and Analise are joined by comedians Barbara Gray and Tess Barker (Lady To Lady, Britney’s Gram) to bring back the BRITNEY love for one of her greatest - nay, THE greatest pop songs ever written, TOXIC. Barbara and Tess talk about the origins of their love for Britney Jean, while Steven talks about how this song has climbed ALL the charts and Analise breaks down how the song’s brilliant Bollywood sample and its almost *creepy* chords make it totally unforgettable and cinematic.
