Part 2 of my conversation with special guest Jay Breitling as we discuss earworms. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Best Coast, The Dandy Warhols, OFF! and The Melvins.

Show notes:

- Recorded on St. Patrick's Day at Chez Breitling

- Kids' music can implant evil melodies in your brain

- Pop music is a good gateway for music fans

- Hall and Oates wrote the catchiest damn songs

- We are in the post-ironic age

- Breitling buys a Daryl Hall song

- Good rock showing up on late night talk shows

- Parents' easy-listening music ends up living in your head: Neil Diamond, Sinatra, Neil Sedaka

- Tracing the roots of Charlie Rich's hit "The Most Beautiful Girl"

- Kumar: Supertramp's Breakfast in America lives on in my mind'

- The Who's Face Dances was more like a Townshend solo album

- Watching an awesome Mclusky video featuring cats

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Best Coast - The Only Place

The Dandy Warhols - Sad Vacation

OFF! - King Kong Brigade

The Melvins - The War on Wisdom
