Popular Music: The Podcast

Oct 21, 2019

We ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts. That’s right, Popettes. We continue on our spooky musical journey through the month of October with Ray Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters” theme! We know this song is LESS on the spook factor, but what IS scary is copyright infringement, which is a big theme of this week’s episode. Also, we talk about why this song’s arrangement gives a ghostly veil of more chords where there aren’t more chords. Who ya gonna call? POP MUSIC.
