I'm listening to the Punch Up the Jam episode about Like a Prayer and Miel and Brian knew the song was "controversial" but both were surprised to learn that the Pope condemned it and Pepsi dropped Madonna over it, so I guess no scandals ever mean anything, a valuable lesson for me

I'm going to listen to the Old Town Road episode now, this will be the first time I've heard the song

Holy shit this song is bad, guys, what the hell

THIS is the song people were talking about for months???

Show thread

Ok the punch up they did was very good, Demi as Johnny Cash as Lil Nas X covering NIN's Hurt but it's also Old Town Road? Good stuff

"And you can have it all, my empire of horses"

@Louisa I think it’s one of those songs that can only be appreciated while drunk and grinding on a stranger.

@Louisa I just assumed that I wasn’t gay or fun enough for it. It’s so completely not made for me I feel like I can’t evaluate it, but yeah, it seems pretty simple and that also you could just be listening to Pony.

@Louisa I think I would’ve had this reaction if not for circumstances that made it my kids’ favorite song long enough to dig itself out a permanent space in my brain. Now I have to admit that it is fun as hell

@Louisa it’s not ~good imo but it cracks me up how it samples a semi-obscure NIN track and Lil Nas X is so young he didn’t even know that was what it was. Also it gets stuck in my head extremely easily.

@wicche ha, they did make fun of him a little for not knowing the sample
