It’s been a long time since I have contributed to the Contrast Podcast.Â For those who don’t know, it’s something of a meta-podcast of music bloggers.Â If you take a look at the blogroll on the sidebar of the website, you can see just how extensive the list of contributers has become.Â The theme of podcast #63 happens to be a song chain.Â Three different podcasts were made, starting here, proceeding to here, and ending in our current episode.
If you haven’t caught on, Person A picks a song, Person B picks a song based off of the previous song, etc, etc.Â The song preceeding mine was The Walker Brothers, “Deadlier Than The Male”, picked by ZB from So the wind wonâ€™t blow it all away.Â While I know nothing of The Walker Brothers, whose music sounds like a theme song from a long lost James Bond movie, I do know of The Walker Brothers Pancake House, in the Chicago suburbs where I grew up.Â My immediate reaction:Â Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes.”
While these podcasts are always unique and interesting due to Tim’s editing and the wide variety of music and contributers, this episode is particularily fun to listen to because of everybody’s explanation of why they picked the song they did.Â Without further stalling, here’s what you need:
