Popular Music: The Podcast

Dec 10, 2018

POUR YOUR MISERY DOWN. AH, it feels so good to be talking about Garbage’s 1995 hit, “Only Happy When It Rains,” Popettes. In this NINETY-FOURTH episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, Steven will recount the insanely serendipitous way that Garbage came to be a band, how they created the distinct, cacophonous sound of this song, and Analise will tell you about her Garbage tattoo and the TWO times she met her idol, Shirley Ann Manson.


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