Popular Music: The Podcast

May 28, 2018

One hit made my TWO girl groups? How can it be?? On this week’s episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Steven and Analise delve into Analise’s *favorite* girl group song ever, “He’s a Rebel” by The Crystals. Steven’s history lesson covers how the production of this song was a race to the finish line (to see which artist’s version would be on the radio first) and Analise will chat about how a tricky C# totally flips the musical modulation script.  


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