Episode 50: The ABCs of Pop

This week, Destiny and Rhea discuss pop music! We share our thoughts (and playlists), and find ourselves questioning whether buying all those Korn and Limp Bizkit albums back in 1998 because we hated Britney and Justin was the right choice.  Plus, Destiny rambles about Spring Breakers, considers watching Dr. Who, and explains why "Marry the Night" is a better gay anthem than "Born This Way." Rhea defends Taylor Swift, prefers Solange to Beyonce, and wants you to recommend her some pop albums.

Spoiler alert for the following: Dr. Who I think.

  1. I had that exact, exact experience with the original and cover versions of Mad World. Also sort of with Such Great Heights (which I thought was an Iron & Wine song covered by Snow Patrol until I looked it up just now). I do love an upbeat track with super depressing lyrics.

  2. I looooooooooove that Iron and Wine version of that song. I don't remember which one I heard first, but either way I blame that Zach Braff. Thanks for commenting!
