Give It A Chance with Kevin Devine and Casey Jost

Give It A Chance with Kevin Devine and Casey Jost

With open-minds, Kevin and Casey start the podcast listening to one famously despised pop song - obviously, since we can’t play the track for legal reasons, this is a quick homework assignment for our listeners to stream on their own. Kevin and Casey will give their first impressions of hearing the song as well as some insight into what the time was like when it was originally released. Next, since they are both musicians, they’ll break down the good, the bad, and the ugly of the tune’s musical attributes and lyricism. They’ll compare this song to similar songs (that are loved!) and discuss why the world has decided this song is a famous turd.

This time: it's personal! Casey has a bone to pick with Rascal Flatts for seducing* his mom (*seducing her into picking their song for the mother-son dance at Casey’s wedding). Will Casey and Kevin say "I Do" to this wedding bait song, or will they divorce it?

The band “Blessid Union of Souls” is a one hit wonder?!! Who would have guessed?Can Casey and Kevin give this chock-full-of-90s-references anthem a chancey - or do they just want to hang with that guy from Fargo? (I think his name is Steve)

Train (the band, not the mode of transpo nor the verb “to teach”) is a Grammy award winning pop rock act that you might have heard in Kevin’s mom’s car. The boys put a few Drops Of Jupiter into their metaphorical test tube and find out if it’s solid, liquid, or trash.
