Popular Music: The Podcast

Aug 19, 2019

Enigma’s “Return to Innocence” STAYS WITH YOU, MAN. And even if you don’t remember it by name, ONE NOTE into this episode and you’ll instantly be transported back to the 90’s as Omar and Analise dissect this gem of a gem in this week’s episode of Popular Music: The Podcast. Omar touches on the legal issues around the song and giving credit where credit is due to the Amis singers, Difang and Igay Duana who are responsible for that beautiful chant, while Analise uses this as an excuse to wax poetic about 90s music. As per yush.




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