The podcast that tapes the Top 10 and then talks about it in school the next day, with Laura Snapes and Fraser McAlpine.
This week, as the UK triggers Article 50, we look back at the last chart before Britain joined the EU, and find some (possibly tenuous) parallels with the current Top 10. Is Anne-Marie's Ciao Adios just Roy C's Shotgun Wedding for 2017? Were the Osmonds the proto-Sheeran? Plus, an analysis of Young Thug's threat to poop on the competition without wiping his bottom afterwards. What's really at stake here? FIND OUT THIS WEEK!
For listeners on the move, our personal No.1s this week were: Tearjerker by Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales (Fraser) and Fontaine de Lait by Camille (Laura), but all the selections discussed this week (except for anything by Ed Sheeran) are on our Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/snapes/playlist/27gB2GO2D2Rt2KnbfYTSNN
We also discussed Tom Ewing's excellent theory of pop culture packages (http://freakytrigger.co.uk/nylpm/2017/03/datapanik-in-the-year-sheero/) and Michael Cragg on pop's crowded credits (https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2017/jan/11/pop-producers-rappers-credit-headliners).
