Podcast Episode 105: Something Honest
|November 21, 2015|
There are all different kinds of songs. Some are cute and bouncy. Some are dark and moody. I think that some of the most touching songs are songs that reveal some weakness, tell a story, or say something personal. These songs say something honest, and gritty honesty has more value to me, I think, than all the airbrushed glamour of Hollywood. In this episode, I have five songs for you that I think say something honest. The songs are "Back Off" by The Bionic Rats, "Radio Silence" by Gregory Michael Davis, "Tampa" by The Hicks Canyon Band, "Vengeance On My Mind" by Felix Hagan and the Family, and "Sugihara" by David Rovics.
