Disclaimer: When sitting down to record this episode, we all thought Michelle had seen way more music videos than she has.

Music has the capability to bring not only the best but also the worst out in people. But what is it exactly that makes a song hit you so hard that it's hard to breathe? What makes a song help you run ten miles on a treadmill when you put it on? What is it about a song that makes you want to spend your hard-earned cash on saving abused and neglected puppies when you see them on TV? What do Waka Flaka Flame, Prince, and Sarah McLachlan have in common? It's Episode 20 and If you haven't guessed by now, this week we're talking about music that makes us emotional—wether it is happy, sad, mad, or motivated to run a marathon, we talk about it all. We also had the pleasure of catching up with Zac Malloy frontman for The Nixons, where we got him to weigh in on the topic, discuss their new album, and so much more. LET'S GO!  To find more about The Nixons visit www.thenixonsofficial.com  Sonic Boom EP out now on all streaming platforms.
Carole Baskin. Killed her husband—whacked him, can't convince me—that it didn't happen, fed him to tigers—they snackin. What's happnin? Carole Baskin. Okay, Okay now log off of TikTok, put the kids to bed, throw on your favorite band tee, pour yourself a cold one while charging yourself $11, and have a seat. It's episode 18,  we're live and always 6 feet apart. This week is part two of a two-part discussion about live albums. A live album certainly has a place in recorded music, but not everyone agrees on what that place is or even how important a live album is overall. This week we talk more about "fake" live albums, our overall favorites, live albums that are considered iconic, their relevancy in today's music, and more. We cover it all in this jam-packed two-parter! Disc 2 of 2, LET'S GO!!! #TellKyleWhatToDo
 It's episode 16 and boy do we have a treat for you. It turns out that Lars was onto something when he thought you shouldn't be able to steal Metallica's life work with the click of a button via Napster. Fast forward several years and it turns out people still love trying to get what they consider to be the most "bang for their buck" aka FREE. A bit of a continuation of episode 15, but this time we have Canadian singer/songwriter/musician Brad Lyons aka Oceanship here with us to discuss music industry ethics, piracy, the state of the music industry today—where it's headed, and how we can change the dynamic one artist at a time. This is going to be good, LET'S GO!  Want to continue the conversation? Share this episode with your friends. With your help, we can change direction and begin to construct ethical relationships one at a time. Join the movement at www.artists-united.org Buy Oceanship music on bandcamp!

5 + 1 = 6. Arithmetic sure is something, isn't it? The late great Billy Shakespeare once said: "The beauty of me is that I am very rich". Wait, that was our (one and hopefully only) commander and thief, I must have somehow confused my notes. Ahhhh here we go let's start again, shall we? The late great Billy Shakespeare once wrote “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose / By Any Other Name would smell as sweet.” and he may have been onto something. Is it the members that make the band, or is it the band that makes the members? Does it even matter what members are in the band? When is a band, no longer a band—after all they're still selling out shows right? We dive in headfirst to try and figure it out.
 In this very special one of a kind episode, we've decided to first off announce to all of you out there that we've replaced Kyle. We finally got tired of his potty mouth and just overall had enough—juuuuuuuuust kidding he just wasn't able to make recording this time due to a scheduling conflict, but luckily for all of you, we were able to catch up with friend of the show Josh and have him fill in while Kyle was away. This week we discuss all things about this little old group that maybe some of you have heard of, but most probably have not—The Beatles. That's right, an entire episode dedicated to what many say is the first "boy band" ever created. No one can deny the influence they've had throughout the years when it comes to music. Whether you consider yourself a fan or not, you're not going to want to miss this brand spanking new episode of your favorite Imperfect Foods delivery driver's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!

 New look who dis? Juuuuuust kidding. You know what it is, it's season two and your favorite musical podcast tripod is back in action. After a much-needed break to recharge our batteries, manage our cords, adjust our mics and figure out more shit we think you guys would want to hear us talk about— we decided to start this season off with a BANG!  In episode one of season two, we're talking about our favorite live music venues. We also had the pleasure of catching up with someone that we not only consider a personal friend but who is also the bass player for a little band named WALLS OF JERICHO. Give a round of applause for Aaron Ruby ya'll. Aaron was kind enough to sit down with us and talk about touring, being in a very well known band (that he swears isn't very well known), his favorite venues to play a show at, see a show at, and so much more. It's the start of a brand new season of your pool guys' favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!  For everything WALLS OF JERICHO visit their official website here.  Check out one of their badass music videos here.  Give them a listen on any of your favorite music streaming platforms.  Don't forget to listen along to the songs we talk about via our Infectious Groove Podcast Companion Songs playlist that you can find here.  Also, WE LIVE.

 Let's talk Pizza for a second. Simple ingredients but not always created equal from one pie to another. It absolutely depends on who makes the pizza, where said pizza is made, and with what ingredients. The same can be said for live music—as it's definitely not all created equal for nearly the exact same reasons. This is also a good factor on which to judge if someone is trustworthy. Mama always said, "if they don't like pizza or live music, boy they probably ain't for you". Okay, okay Mama didn't actually say that, but she probably wanted to, and that's close enough.  In the Season One Finale of Infectious Groove Podcast we're talking concerts. The good, the bad, the great, and the in-betweens. All live shows are obviously not created equal and we explore the reasons why we think that is. Whether your first concert is on the horizon or you've been to so many you lost count 10 years ago, you're not going to want to miss this one—the 29th episode of your neighbor's, son's, third cousin once removed's favorite music podcast.  We'll see you back here in two weeks for the premiere of Season Two. Same Place. Same day. Same time. Don't be late. LET'S GO!
*DISCLAIMER - This episode contains spoilers about the outcome of the tournament. If you're behind on episodes it is advised that you get all caught up before starting this episode.  Well, it's been a wild ride over the last 16 weeks and we hope that you have enjoyed this experimental tournament of sorts as much as we did. Michelle came, saw, and conquered her way through the first half of the bracket, but was soon dethroned as it was advised we leave the decision making up to you (the listeners) in lieu of continuing to receive death threats based upon her extremely controversial rating system —just kidding (kind of). There have been ups, downs, shocking revelations, and huge disappointments—and you've probably almost driven your car off the road a time or two while tuning in. It's okay we understand, and now you no longer have to worry about the airbag going off because you're punching your steering wheel so hard while screaming at the stereo.   We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for tuning in, engaging with us, and voting. You all are the ones that made this thing possible at a time where we all needed something to keep our minds off the news.  AND THE WINNER IS...
 Okay okay, so you've read the title of this episode and I am willing to bet you're either singing (out loud) the theme song from CSI: Las Vegas (shame on you), or maybe you're thinking about when you got super stoned and watched Alice meet the Caterpillar for the first time. Either way, you're on to something here, and hopefully, it isn't an ongoing love for a certain band that will remain anonymous. With that being said, the only who's we talk about around here are from Whoville, but there is no need to be a Grinch about it. This week we are talking about the long musical road that got us to where we are now. The good, the bad, the emo, and the ugly. We take a deep dive into what made us the musical maniacs we are today. Music has a way of shaping those who listen to it, and each and every person has a different story to tell.  It's the 28th episode of Pete Townshend's favorite  Uber driver's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!  Like what you heard? Interested in new (to you) music? Don't forget to follow along each week with our Spotify Podcast Companion Playlist where you can listen to everything we listen to and talk about on the show. New week. New episode. New playlist.  Don't miss out!
Well, as you all now know, March was full of madness— it just wasn't the kind of madness we were all expecting. So in order to satisfy everyone's hunger for a good old battle of the titans, we here at Infectious Groove Podcast put together a good old fashioned tournament with brackets and everything. Each week some of our favorite artist's albums go head to head for a shot at moving forward and clutching the coveted title. LET'S GO! ROUND 15 PRINCE - PURPLE RAIN VS. LED ZEPPELIN - IV Who will clutch the coveted title? Your guess is as good as ours and the only real way to know is to tune in and find out.
front·man /ˈfrəntˌman/ noun noun: frontman; plural noun: frontmen; noun: front man; plural noun: front men 1. the lead singer of a pop or rock group. 2. a person who represents an organization and works to make its image more appealing to the public. "Harry wanted Teddy to act as the respectable frontman for his business interests" 3. (in soccer) a forward or attacker. "once again, Wigan's frontmen failed to take their chances" By definition, the lead singer of your favorite band is technically a Frontman/Frontwoman—or well for lack for a better term and to be all-inclusive a Frontperson. But are they though? What makes someone a frontperson? Can you be out front in the spotlight and not be THE frontperson? Can you hide in the stage shadows and be the frontperson that everyone makes you out to be?   It's episode 27, and this week the constant on-air harassment of our number one fan has led to us having our first in-studio guest. We'd like everyone to give their best round of golf claps for Friend Of The Show Joe. Yes, you read that right, we finally caught up with him to get his thoughts on what he considers a Frontperson to be. We talk the best, worst, our favorites and so much more on the newest episode of your favorite pizza guy's favorite music podcast. You're not gonna wanna miss this one. LET'S GO! Don't forget to listen along with our Spotify podcast companion playlist where we load up as much of the music and artists we can—that we talk about weekly so you can listen for yourselves and tell us what you think. New week. New playlist. Every week.

There is nothing better than being able to really connect with two musicians that are looking into the eyes of one another as they sing one of the greatest love songs you think you've ever heard. You know, when you can really feel the love they're singing to you about? When you think of a classic duet you might think Sonny and Cher or maybe Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton—Or wait are those features? Is a duet a feature? Is a feature a duet? Are they technically the same thing? What makes something a duet even though it's technically featuring another artist? Either way, I digress and as you've probably figured out by now, this week we're talking duets—the best of all time, our favorites, ones you might have forgotten about and everything in between. It's the 20 + 6th episode of every Karen's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!

 It's 1989, your half in the bag—full of pizza and beer while sitting in your living room at your very own Grammy party. You've decided to go all-in because Metallica is up for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal recording, and there is no way they're not going to win. The time has come as Alice Cooper makes his way to the stage and opens the envelope—"and the award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Recording goes to....JETHRO TULL!". You look at your friends the same way everyone in the audience is looking at one another—in utter confusion and disbelief. Fast forward a few decades and the disbelief still stands, but are awards and award shows any more or less important than they used to be? Does it matter if your favorite musician has ten awards or even any at all? Is a Grammy more important or prestigious than a VMA? We talk about this famous mishap, and so much more on episode 24 of your girlfriend's favorite music podcast.

 What's that you ask? That screeching is your brand new baybay needing your attention from the next room over. While you're getting your wipe on (and the poop off), you hear what think is Phil Collins coming from the tv in the other room, so you run to check it out—only to find a gorilla drumming to Phil Collins in a  Cadbury Egg Easter commercial. What does a Gorilla have to do with Phil Collins or Easter candy? Your guess is as good as ours. Music and television commercials go way back, and the music that is used in a commercial can make or break whatever is being advertised. More often than not this works in favor of the company that's doing the advertising, but every now and then they drop the ball and miss the mark completely. Which famed musician was featured not only in a Burger King commercial but also one for Preparation H? You'll have to tune in to find out. We talk about that and so much more on this, the 23rd episode of your favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!

 Music and Politics go way back, and your favorite musician speaking out about them is nothing new. But is it something they should do? Should they just "shut up and sing" or use their platform for something more than just the music? From Ice-T making a song called "Cop Killer" and then going on to play a cop on a very popular television series, to Roger Waters overtly political lyrics. We're raging against the machine on the 22nd episode of your favorite music podcast. As Eminem once said, "mosh, push..............". LET'S GO!
