We missed two weeks of the podcast thanks to holiday travels, so this week, we’re giving you a bonus episode before Sunday’s normal dose of Now Conspiring.
And it’s a different episode than normal. We brought in the “Pop Song Professor” Clifford Stumme, who is one of the leading writers on song meanings. He gives us his picks for the best songs of the year and why they’re so relevant.
Of course, we want to hear your favorite songs of 2015 down below in the comments. Let us know what’s tickled your ears and why.
You can see my personal list below, which varies quite a bit from Cliff’s picks.
