Rank #1: Archive Episode: Tyler Joseph's "Save" from No Phun Intended

Podcast cover
Read more

This one's a blast from Tyler Joseph's 17-year-old past. In "Save" from No Phun Intended, he begs God to save him as he tries hard to keep himself together. It's a good song, and if you love Twenty One Pilots, you'll like this song!

Please make a special point to listen to this episode. Friedemann Findeisen is a German songwriter and songwriting coach whose brilliant Artist Series on YouTube perfectly captures and explains the songwriting styles of bands like Twenty One Pilots, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and more. He's a great songwriter himself and coaches people from around the world on how to write their own songs. He's got a unique perspective on pop music, and in this interview, he explains A LOT of how pop music works on the music side of things and helps me (and hopefully you!) to better understand lyrics "holistically." :)

Today we have a special guest. Successful song reviewing YouTube Jon Compton from ARTV and Beyond ARTV joins us to go further in depth over Lorde's _Melodrama _album and his thoughts on it. I watched his YouTube video about it and knew that I had to have him on for this episode. Together, he and I talk about the merits and interesting aspects of Lorde's newest album.

Just fair warning, because this was my first time doing a long distance interview, the sound quality isn't always the greatest, but the info and opinions here are worth it!

Also, be sure to check out John's channel. It's going to be well worth it to subscribe to him!

Time for a return of an old favorite. One year ago, I had Dr. Tess Stockslager on to talk about _Sigh No More _by Mumford & Sons, and today we're going to move one step forward and talk about Babel, another fantastic record from the band. 

In this podcast, Tess and I discuss each song individually as well as the musical style and story arc of the album as a whole. It's a wonderful conversation, and we get into some real depth with these songs. 

Can't wait to hear what you think!
