S04 E11: Coda-pendant

If you've ended up here, you're in for a treat, as, in the end, we've got another musical theme episode for you. The theme: well, songs that feature great parts at the beginning or end and that leave us wanting more. Hopefully you'll find our show a hoot from end to end... enjoy!

Pictured above: What, can't you read? It's the word coda.


Weezer - Island in the Sun

Neko Case - At Last

The Beatles - I Want You (She's So Heavy)

The Hollies - Hey Carrie-Anne
Natalie Imbruglia - Torn

Portishead - We Carry On
Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Feist - Lonely Lonely

Derek and the Dominos - Layla

Sigur Ros - Festival


Nicki Minaj's Starships, the Gay Anthem du jour.

S04 E10: Together

Well, it's a special episode this week, in at least three ways:
  1. We recorded in the same physical location for the first time in two years;
  2. In honour of fellow SURPer Mike Wong's wedding, there's an appropriate musical theme;
  3. And, for reasons I can't explain, it's also the shortest episode on record. (Many listeners probably see this as a relief...) Enjoy!
Yeah, we clean up nice.

Darlene Love - (Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry
Martha & the Vandellas - Third Finger, Left Hand
The Dixie Cups - Chapel of Love
Gary Lewis and the Playboys - This Diamond Ring
Jimmy Soul - If You Wanna Be Happy For the Rest of Your Life
Adam Sandler - I Wanna Grow Old With You
The Detroit Cobras - The Real Thing
Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous

Here's a rather unique way to propose.

(Correction: Our dear friend Mike Wong married the lovely Lorraine Lee, not Lorraine Wang as we referenced in the podcast.  Our sincere apologies!)
