Popular Music: The Podcast

Jun 3, 2019

We can't seem to get our minds off of this radio staple so we decide to dive into Vacation by the Go-Go's! It's all we've ever wanted.  Omar and Analise put on our summer gear and get into what makes this track tick, how the Go-Go's have topped the top of the charts and how the song structure keeps this a Go-Go's go-to bop.




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