Popular Music: The Podcast

Sep 3, 2018

YEAH YEAHHHHHHH! In this very special EIGHTIETH episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Steven and Analise break down the fist bumping anthem that is George Michael’s “Freedom ‘90” as specially chosen by Analise’s mom, Melissa, who joins them on this episode to talk about how this song defined her late twenties. Your hosts will discuss GM’s yearning for creative liberty and how this translates into the chord structure!


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