Earbuds And Earworms



Two friends with opposite tastes in music come together to bond over music and discuss what they learn that week. A weekly music show for the everyday listener.


  • #155: Questionable Songs

    #155: Questionable Songs

    24/09/2019 Duration: 29min

    There are simply so many questions. Questions about life, love, and is that the guy who punched me in the face? Amy pushes through her morning voice while Mitchell reminisces about the coffee he left in the car while crafting this show that is all about questions.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Hank Williams - Why Don’t You Love Me Bob Mould - Who Was Around Stabbing Westward - What Do I Have to Do Ween - Is This What Deaner Was Talkin’ About sir Was - ‘Can We Be More Kenn Kweder - What Am I Talking About Barenaked Ladies - Who Needs Sleep The Move - Do Ya Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe - What’s A Matter With the Mill Silver Jews - How Can I Love You (If You Won’t Lie Down) Soft Cell - Where Did Our Love Go Joanna Gruesome - Do You Really Want to Know Why Yr Still in Love With Me

  • #154: But, Really, What is That Smell?

    #154: But, Really, What is That Smell?

    16/09/2019 Duration: 27min

    It’s an exploration of the olfactory sense through song. Amy has opinions on rotting fruit and Mitchell is convinced Amy’s cat is not the most evil thing on the planet. That  sentence does make sense, we assure you.    Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music:  Bob’s Burgers - Oil Spill Lynyrd Skynyrd - That Smell Suzanne Vega - Caramel Melvins - Creepy Smell Marina - Orange Trees Blind Melon - Wilt Incubus - Aqueous Transmissions Georgia White - Hot Nuts (Get ‘Em From the Peanut Man) Shishir Bhanot - Smelly Cat Tool - Stinkfist The Dambuilders - Smell Del the Funky Homosapien - If You Must

  • #153: The Moody Not So Blues

    #153: The Moody Not So Blues

    10/09/2019 Duration: 28min

    Pretty much all the songs are about a mood, but this week is all about Mitchell, Amy, and the Earbuddies explaining the moods they get from certain songs. Expect to feel all the feels!   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Kid Cudi ft. MGMT - The Pursuit of Happiness Nine Inch Nails - Hurt Ween - I’m in the Mood to Move Mates of State - Goods (All in Your Head) Patternist - I’ve Got It!

  • #152 Drugs, Drugs, and Some More Drugs

    #152 Drugs, Drugs, and Some More Drugs

    03/09/2019 Duration: 32min

    Since evading the theme of drugs for nearly three years, Mitchell and Amy finally tackle one of the Earbuddies favorite themes (ya’ll sure had a lotta songs in your pockets). There is plenty of giggling and conversations about stereotypes. If you missed listening to terrible selections from Amy, this is the show for you.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Five Finger Satellite - Massive Cocaine Seizure Curtis Mayfield - Pusherman Dick Justice - Cocaine Panda Bear - Cosplay Bizarre and King Kymera - D.R.U.G.S Janko Nilovic - Drug Song The Monkees - Salesman Sturgill Simpson - Just Let Go Afroman - Because I Got High Kris Kristofferson - Sunday Morning Coming Down Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank) John Hartford - Holding

  • #151: Defib the Vfib

    #151: Defib the Vfib

    26/08/2019 Duration: 35min

    Amy had to go to a class this week and has decided to get dorky so Mitchell and Amy get songs from the Earbuddies about CPR, heart stuff, and generally “stayin’ alive.” There was actual research from Amy that happened on more than one song. Added bonus, Mitchell sings quite a bit on this one.   Music: Bee Gees - Stayin Alive Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On The Cars - Heartbeat City Herman’s Hermits - Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat The Torn ACLs - Two Four Six Eight Nine Inch Nails - We’re In this Together P.O.D. - Alive Hurl - Forget to Breathe Metric - Help I’m Alive The Magnetic Fields - Epitaph for my Heart Cave In - Reanimation

  • #150: One Song to Start the Dance Party

    #150: One Song to Start the Dance Party

    19/08/2019 Duration: 29min

    Much like a game show, Mitchell and Amy ask the listeners to start a dance party with one song. Turns out, Amy just wants to sway lightly and Mitchell has all the alien dance moves that David Byrne may be able to compete with. There may be some infuriating forgetting of a certain possible punk’s first band’s name. You know, like normal.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Rilo Kiley - Breakin’ Up  The Five Du-Tones - Shake a Tail Feather MIA - Paper Planes (DFA remix)  Talking Heads - Life During Wartime LIVE Melanie Martinez - Mad Hatter Billy Idol - Dancing with Myself LCD Soundsystem - Losing My Edge Information Society - What’s on Your Mind (Pure Energy) Morris Day and the Time - Jungle  Ashley O - On a Roll Slow Magic - Youth Group Was (Not Was) - Walk the Dinosaur

  • #149: Joy on a Gray Day

    #149: Joy on a Gray Day

    13/08/2019 Duration: 30min

    From washboard wrestling to tubular bells, this week’s song selections remind us that hey, we are are making it and getting better at whatever it is! No matter how many times we miss the green light by just a smidge, there is always a brighter side.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music:   Genesis - It’s Gonna Get Better Le Tigre - Keep On Livin’ Bleachers - I Wanna Get Better Best Coast - Feelin’ Okay Olivia Lane - Make My Own Sunshine Blood Like Wine - Not Today Cast - Alright The Young Rascals - I’ve Been Lonely Too Long The Wonder Years - Came Out Swinging Bill Conti - Gonna Fly Now David Cook - Heartbeat Grandaddy - Now It’s On

  • #148: But Do the Kids Like It?

    #148: But Do the Kids Like It?

    04/08/2019 Duration: 37min

    Some songs are meant for kids and some songs just sound like they are for kids but maybe aren’t. Earbuddy Brandon suggested that Mitchell and Amy should tackle unexpected and alternative children’s songs. Amy uses her easily available small expert to get the child’s take and well, Ru holds no punches. Music:  Flight of the Conchords - Albi the Racist Dragon Ren and Stimpy - The Log Song  Sarah Silverman - Poop Song They Might Be Giants - Dr. Worm Veggie Tales - I Love My Lips Barenaked Ladies - 7 8 9 Sweet Stavin Chain - Teddy Bear’s Picnic Green Jelly - Three Little Pigs The Flaming Lips - Christmas at the Zoo Peter Bjorn and John - I Wish I Was a Spy Kimya Dawson - Alphabutt Ages and Ages - Divisionary (Do the Right Thing) Ween - Ocean Man The Free Design - Kites are Fun

  • #147: Awkward First Dating

    #147: Awkward First Dating

    29/07/2019 Duration: 32min

    Two folks who are kinda awkward (or shy) with first dates make a show about first date songs. Amy makes the worst singles ad after tripping over her own words and Mitchell declares that he is slightly shy (what?).  This show reveals all the Earbuddies’ first date tactics and feels but also gives a huge variety to add to that first date playlist! Thank You, Kaylah, for the ideas list!   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather The Cure - Friday I’m In Love Turnover - Dizzy on the Comedown Ratboys - Charles Bernstein Sleepwalkers - In My Dreams Seam - Rafael Jane’s Addiction - Classic Girl Pulp - Something Changed Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend The Replacements - I Will Dare Seratones - Gotta Get to Know Ya Ellis Paul - Drive In Movie

  • #146: Bag Full of Grab

    #146: Bag Full of Grab

    21/07/2019 Duration: 37min

    In this week’s grab bag, it was a free for all in which Mitchell perfectly described music, Amy tripped on rather simple words, and Soren Kierkegaard made up words. There are songs that sound like acid trips (allegedly) and songs that make rainbow flatus. At least one Furby was harmed in the making of this show.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Nightmare Fuel   Music: Peter Gabriel - Come Talk to Me Weekend Nachos - Snowball Fight Corvettes - Beware of Time Hookworms - Form and Function Taylor Swift - You Need to Calm Down The Pogues - I’ll Love You ‘til the End Deftones - Knife Party Makthaverskan - Antabas John Frusciante - The Mirror Adam Again - River on Fire F**ked Up - Police The I.L.Y.’s - Wash My Hands Shorty  

  • #145 You Do You Anthems

    #145 You Do You Anthems

    15/07/2019 Duration: 39min

    Got a personal philosophy but as a song? This is the week for you! Personal anthems are songs that represent that philosophy that is you are gets you to strive to keep on keeping on. Both Mitchell and Amy hadn’t come across a song before this week and hilarity ensues after some seriousness.   Voicemail: 731-400-BUDS(2837) Email: eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Tame Impala - Be Above It Harlem Shakes - Strictly Game Cheap Trick - Reach Out Tweak Bird - Bunch O Brains Logic ft. Alessia Cara and Khalid - 1-800-273-8255 Le Cassette - Arms of Mine Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes - Juggernaut Fiona Apple - Daredevil John Cale - Fear is a Man’s Best Friend The Flaming Lips - Feeling Yourself Disintegrate Men Without Hats - Safety Dance Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

  • #144: All the Weather, but Mostly Rain

    #144: All the Weather, but Mostly Rain

    08/07/2019 Duration: 33min

    Revisiting an older theme again this week with weather but a totally different collection of songs. Weather as metaphor and even songs about fog and snow! Amy was really sleep deprived and tangented more than normal. Mitchell points out how they are both indoor kids and it is likely why they like the rain so much.    Music:  John Maus - ...And the Rain  The Wiggles - I Love it When it Rains Hank Williams III - Thunderstorms and Neon Signs  Yonder Mountain String Band - New Horizons Haliewa - Foggy Bananarama - Cruel Summer Tonstartssbandht - Little April Showers Noah and the Whale - Blue Skies Tom Waits - Rains on Me The Beta Band - Dry the Rain The Cowsills - The Park, The Rain, and Other Things Low - Last Snowstorm of the Year

    #141 Playlist for Moving Along

    17/06/2019 Duration: 35min

    Some themes are worth returning, and Soup of Try to Podcast gave us a good reason to return to what songs we would like at our funeral. The submissions this week were thoughtful, playful, and celebratory.

  • #140 Were On A Yacht

    #140 We're On A Yacht

    10/06/2019 Duration: 43min

    Yacht Rock has a definitive meaning (which can be blue-eyed soul but not all blue-eyed soul is Yacht Rock). Mitchell dons his Vans and Amy dons her Topsiders to step afloat the waves (which are not on the Styx). There is an abundance of Earbuddy feedback! And we have the next two weeks planned out on themes because of Soup and Kayla! Big Thanks to Soup from Try To Podcast for evangelizing about us! And after you binge our 140 episodes again, go listen to Try To Podcast!   Contact us! 731-400-BUDS eandepod@gmail.com   Music: Al Stewart - Year of the Cat Boz Scaggs - Lowdown Pablo Cruise - Good Ship Pablo Cruise Toto - Rosanna Mac DeMarco - On the Level Michael McDonald - I Keep Forgettin’ The Blue Jean Committee - Catalina Breeze Thundercat - Show You the Way Chris Rea - Fool If You Think it is Over Steely Dan - The Caves of Altimira Robbie Dupree - Steal Away Breaking Benjamin - Ashes of Eden Tasa - Truly Jaded Airplay - Nothin’ You Can Do About It

    #139: Summer Porchin' with Plenty of Deet

    03/06/2019 Duration: 30min

    There is a lot going on this week, least of which are the tangents. Mitchell and Amy hit pretty early on the importance of Off!™ during any Mississippi Delta get together and the true explanation of three different “rocks” occurs. So many rocks! Sit back on the porch swing with your adult beverage and some salad called “jazz cabbage.”   Reach Out to Us: eandepod@gmail.com 731-400-BUDS   Music: Slowdive - Altogether Luxury Elite - All Night Belle and Sebastian - I’m a Cuckoo Best Coast - The Sun Was High (So Was I) Ionnalee - Open Sea The Strokes - Barely Legal Cayucas - A Summer Thing Bonobo - Kong Zac Brown Band - Toes White Reaper - Judy French Roosevelt - Montreal Dresses - Catch

  • #138: Oui! To the French

    #138: Oui! To the French

    26/05/2019 Duration: 29min

    Have you ever wanted to hear Tennesseans mangle French while bringing absolutely lovely songs from France to your ears? It is your lucky day! Amy muddles around and Mitchell attempts to save her from her own pronunciation while having thoughtful conversation about some really sweet musical acts. Also, did you know M83 was French?   Music: Nana Mouskouri - Plaisir d’amour Stéphane Golmann - Actualités Laurent Garnier - Flashback Amesoeurs - Heurt YELLE - Ici et Maintenant (Here and Now) Michel Polnareff - La poupee qui fait non Camille - Quand je marche Erlen Meyer - Rouge Cardinal Cortex - Huit Octobre 1971 Saint Privat - Poisson rouge Jacques Dutronc - Hippie Hippie Hourrah M83 - Midnight City

  • #137: How Dare You!

    #137: How Dare You!

    20/05/2019 Duration: 34min

    Amy and Mitchell spend this week checking out the dumpster offerings and curbside pick-up to find treasure underneath the used cat litter and soggy couches. They take their mother’s advice and only try to say nice things. Metal Johnny finds a way to gross even Amy out and Mitchell finds ways to compliment horrible songs against his better judgement. Music: Corey Feldman - Ascension Millenium Bo Daddy Harris - Queen of my Heart IceJJFish - On the Floor Greta Van Fleet - When the Curtain Rises Fall Out Boy - Uma Thurman The Very Nice Interesting Singing Man - Trash Collector Man Crazy Town - Butterfly Michelle Branch - Everywhere Stryper - To Hell With the Devil Lee Greenwood - God Bless the USA Benny Mardones - Into the Night From First to Last - The One Armed Boxer vs. The Flying Guillotine

  • #136: Im Not Bitter! You Are!

    #136: I'm Not Bitter! You Are!

    12/05/2019 Duration: 28min

    While they come across as sweet innocent podcasters, Mitchell and Amy are carrying some bitter, sarcastic, snarky grudges that don’t seem to be dying anytime soon. In this magnificent example of how great the songs made out of bitterness, Amy cusses quite a bit and Mitchell admits how much he loves this theme.   Music: Charlotte Cardin - Main Girl Carly Simon - You’re So Vain Fiona Apple - Get Gone Magnetic Fields - Meaningless Hannah Grace - The Bed You Made Cee Lo Green - F*** You L7 - S*** List Shellac - Prayer to God Loretta Lynn - Fist City PUP - If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will Shannon and the Clams - Point of Being Right They Might Be Giants - When Will You Die
