NO ENCORE #275 | TOP 5 SONGS ABOUT DRIVING / OLIVIA RODRIGO REVIEW
Rev your engines and so forth as NO ENCORE gets behind the wheel and tears down a musical motorway in search of the very best songs about putting the pedal to the metal. All that and a truckload of teenage angst on this week’s album review.
ACT ONE (3:30): A breezy news section takes in the return of Primavera, Matt Bellamy’s mindful approach to science, Billy Corgan’s wistful reflections, and Pusha T’s childlike lamenting.
ACT TWO (19:37): Musician, poet and noted swiftologist Alice Kiernan joins Dave and Craig to discuss rising pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo and her chart-bothering debut album SOUR. Organic next big thing or cynical industry plant? Much to think about.
ACT THREE (43:49): Dave can’t drive. Nor can Craig. As such, who better to deliver the Top 5 Songs About Driving?
