It's the season finale! We wrap up season one with the George Michael (or is it Wham!?) classic "Careless Whisper". The riff is legendary, easily one of the most recognizable of all time. So many covers acknowledge it and have their fun interpreting it, while others ignored it completely. Some surprising ones worked really well! Author Ian Rogers (MFA Thesis Novel) helps us break them down.--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/blanketingcovers/message

The Amen Break w/Sylis P
2:03:35For a long time, Amen, Brother by The Winstons was just the b-side of a moderately successful R&B song. Over time it has grown into something so much more. A 6-second drum sample from the track has become one of the most used, and most recognizable samples in the history of music. From its early days in hip hop, into various dance music genres, and eventually even crossing over into rock and roll, The Amen Break is one of the most important sounds in music history. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/blanketingcovers/message
