It’s a crue [it’s a cruel!]l...cruel summer [CRUEL SUMMER]! THAT IS RIGHT, KIDS. We are finally gearing up for our Summer of Nostalgia 2019 and we’re kicking it off with the strangely morose 1984 Bananarama hit, “Cruel Summer.” Omar and Analise address why this song is one of the saddest bops, how there are actually THREE official versions, and they try to guess each other’s recommends for this summer themed PM playlist...they aren’t as successful as they might have hoped.
No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Omar Najam and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
