Teenage girls having breakups in 2021! We close out the year with its biggest and best angry ex songs, and we welcome Spectrum Pulse's Mark Grondin into the booth to help us decide between Olivia Rodrigo's "good 4 u" and Billie Eilish's "Happier Than Ever"!

BONUS EPISODE: Eurovision 2022!
il y a 20 heures
1:12:41We watched Eurovision and this time we brought in an expert, Navah Wolfe, to teach us the ways of Europe and their silly song contest! And some expert opinions were needed because this is the most politically fraught Eurovision in decades. Did Ukraine's song deserve all its goodwill? Was the UK robbed? What did Germany think it was doing? Find out now!
82: "Easy Lover" vs. "Maneater"
1:05:48It's an evil woman-off! Hall & Oates tried to warn you that she'll chew you up, but Phil Collins and his new friend Philip Bailey also want to warn you that she'll take your heart but you won't feel it, and in a moment you'll be on your knees! Which is the better femme fatale song, "Maneater" or "Easy Lover"?
81: "Stacy's Mom" vs. "1985"
56:24There was a catchy little song in 2003 about a hot mom, and a catchy little song in 2004 about a once-hot mom. They're so similar that one song's band covered the other song because they got confused so much. But which one is better, Fountains of Wayne's "Stacy's Mom" or Bowling for Soup's "1985"?
BONUS POD: The 2022 Grammys!
50:21It started out so good! And by the end, the first hour of hot relevant artists like Olivia Rodrigo, BTS and Lil Nas X gave way to the same old Grammys -- dull staid performances, conservative voting, an awkward political statement, and a very out of nowhere pick for Best Album that no one seemed to listen to except Grammy voters! At least it wasn't the Oscars!
80: "Gimme Shelter" vs. "Helter Skelter"
1:11:03Our second Beatles vs. Stones matchup! And it's a doozy, direct from the darkest part of the '60s. Which dark and violent classic rock track unfortunately tied to real-life tragedies best captures the craziest parts of the '60s, "Gimme Shelter" or "Helter Skelter"?
79: "Roar vs. "Brave"
1:05:08The year is 2013, and a plucky little songwriter named Sara Bareilles has written a warm little empowerment anthem called "Brave." And then a few months later a mega-pop star named Katy Perry has released her next big blockbuster single, "Roar." And they sound exactly the same. Which one is the better single? Are there any differences at all? And is either of them any good?
78: "Get Lucky" vs. "Uptown Funk" (with Mic the Snare!)
1:10:43We welcome YouTuber extraordinare Mic the Snare to talk about the biggest jams of the 2010s! It's a showdown of showdowns as Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" goes head to head with Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk"! Which one makes you shake your ass harder??
77: "November Rain" vs. "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)"
1:07:55Was the early '90s all grunge and alternative? No, we were still making big-budget lavish productions of music, and two of the biggest came from unlikely sources, one the biggest badass metal band in the world, the other a forgotten '70s washout on the most improbable comeback of the decade. But only mega-epic 10-minute ballad can reign supreme, so we must decide which is the MEGA-mega-ballad of them all, Guns n' Roses' "November Rain" or Meat Loaf's "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)"?
76: "Everywhere" vs. "A Thousand Miles"
1:04:48Before Taylor, before Lorde, before Billie, there were two teenage girls who wrote pretty songs that captured our hearts. But whose breakout turn-of-the-millennium hit was the better song, Michelle Branch's "Everywhere" or Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles"?
