Way back in 1984, Don Henley was enjoying solo success after having left The Eagles. One of his most memorable hits came from his second solo album. The song "Boys Of Summer" cemented Don as a hitmaker as a solo artist. Just shy of 20 years later, The Ataris came along and released a cover version of the song to massive success. In our latest episode, we'll talk through both versions of the song and ultimately give you our picks for which version is the best and why.

Songs popping up in commercials, movies & television is not a new thing. However, you can end up very surprised when it happens with a certain artist or song. How many people were shocked when they first heard "Revolution" by The Beatles being used to sell Nike sneakers? It can be done well, but we seem to be still figuring out how. With the recent rise in seemingly every legacy artist selling the rights to their catalog, it makes music fans wonder how & when these songs we love are going to be used. We felt this warranted a serious discussion, so we called our friend Dayton from the dockingbay77 podcast to help us out. In this episode Russ & Dayton talk through everyone from Taylor Swift to The Beatles to Black Sabbath and more. It's Season 7 Episode 12 of the CEO of Reebok's favorite podcast: the Infectious Groove Podcast.
What would happen if someone released an album that's supposed to be "country" but instread, it sounded like soul, rock, R&B? What if that album had an incredible rendition of "In Bloom" by Nirvana? Believe it or not, someone already did that. Country / music outlaw Sturgill Simpson released exactly that ablum in April of 2016.This week, Russ & Michelle are joined by KC & Aaron of The Itch Rocks Podcast to talk through a review of "A Sailor's Guide To Earth", the stunning third solo effort from Sturgill Simpson. The guys from The Itch consider themselves to be "rock guys" but we think you'll be surprised by how much they enjoyed this album. It's Season 7, Episode 11 of your favorite CMA snubbed artists favorite show: The Infectious Groove Podcast!
Technical difficulties tried to prevent us from brining this episode to you, but if you've listened to us for any length of time you know that nothing holds us back!

Very soon after we started the Infectious Groove Podcast, one of the biggest parts of our lives were taken away: LIVE CONCERTS. This might seem like a small worry for many, but for us concerts were a way of life. We, like everyone else, took precaution and waited patiently for the live concert experience to return. It's been just about a year since that happened, so we figured it was time to talk about it. Fellow OddPods Media member Richie from the Super Media Bros Podcast joins us this week to talk through it all.What mandates were in place? What precautions went away? What is the experience like at venues of different sizes? What does the future hold?? We answer all of these questions and more on Season 7, Episode 3 of your favorite podcast: the Infectious Groove!
Release in 2010, "The Suburbs" by Arcade Fire went on to massive critical and commercial success. Would you believe that we never got around to hearing the album?

This week we're joined by Dayton of the dockingbay77 podcast who is in the same boat as us. Dayton sat down to listen to and review this listener picked album choice without ever hearing one note of the bands music prior. Over the course of the episode, we think you'll hear some unique perspectives regarding not only the music, but our preconceptings prior to hearing the album.It's Season 7, Episode 2 of your favorite new SNL cast members, less famous cousins favorie music podcast: Infectious Groove Podcast!
"When the rain's blowin' in your face...and the whole world is on your case..." that's how this modern day standard starts.

Since it's release, the song has been covered hundreds of times.We figured, what better way to kick off our SEVENTH season of bringing you the Infectious Groove Podcast than with our first ever THREE WAY Totally Epic Cover Battle.

Somehow, someway, we've made it through yet another season of pretty much everyone's favorite music podcast. If you're confused as to what podcast I'm referencing, it's this one. I just figured I'd put that out there. If you're just tuning it, first of all, thank you, second of all, you're in for quite the wild ride. We've made it through a mountain of musical guests, a plethora of guest hosts, a global pandemic, the birth of a kid, a life-changing move across the country, and so much more. You guys have had a front-row seat to it all, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Without you, we wouldn't be here, and let's be honest here, that would suck some serious ass. With that being said, let's get into it! We all have that elder family member that thinks their version of a song or an artist is the end all be all because let's be honest "they just don't make em' like they used to" (according to Uncle Bob). Or hell, maybe you're the elder that thinks little Jimmy should shut up about his Tik Tok songs because they sure in the hell didn't originate there. Perhaps your inner "Karen" starts to rear its ugly head when you see a tween rocking a Pink Floyd or Aerosmith shirt that you're certain came from a department store. If we're being honest here, most of us probably have at least a little bit of some of these types of things ingrained within ourselves, mostly because we tend to become protective over the things that we cherish in life. Others are simply just grouchy assholes that tend to behave this way with everything in their lives. We call this "gatekeeping" and it really can be found in all parts of one's life. This week, we're ending season 6 with a bang, and a special guest. Now that I am reading this, that last part is worded a little strangely, so before you ask, no we're not banging our special guest on the season 6 finale. If that's what you're looking for, perhaps you've stumbled upon the wrong podcast, or maybe the wrong platform entirely, but that's for you to decide. Typically I'd tell you right here, who's going to be on with us this week, but it's the season finale, so guess what...it's a surprise. Join us as we try and bust through the gates, and tell the gatekeeper to get lost. It's the season 6 finale of Johnny Rzeznik's plastic surgeon's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!! Keep up with all of the music we talk about in each episode by listening to the Infectious Groove Podcast Companion Songs playlist, exclusively on Spotify.

First unleashed on the world in late 1979, Pink Floyd - The Wall is many things to many people.

Not many people have tried to cover the one and only, undisputed King of Pop Michael Jackson. Those that have usally find themselves trying to top something that is already perfect. A funny thing happened to the band Alien Ant Farm: they didn't set out to top Michael Jackson and they didn't even want to have their cover be the focal point of their career.Born from playing a few riffs at shows, the Alien Ant Farm cover of the Michael Jackson classic "Smooth Criminal" went on to be what they're best known for. It was an enormous hit for Michael Jackson himself, finding it's way into all of his tours after it's release.This week on the Infectious Groove Podcast, we welcome in KC and Aaron from The Itch Rocks Podcast to talk through both versions of this iconic song. What do we all like about the original? What do we like about the cover? Which one do each of us prefer and also, which version would we recomment to others to start with?It's Season 6, Episode 16 of your favorite outdated & irrelevant music magazine writers favorite podcast: the Infectious Groove Podcast!

Toning your body is about more than losing weight; when your body is toned, you have more energy, a clearer mind, and the confidence that comes with knowing you're in the best shape you can be. https://tutuappx.com/ https://vidmate.onl/

Do not have your child breathe into a paper https://tutuappx.com/ https://vidmate.onl/ bag, as this can restrict oxygen flow too much, which can make symptoms worse.

For example, if your child usually experiences trembling, sweating, and intense anxiety during a panic attack, then these symptoms may be considered normal for her. https://dltutuapp.com/tutuapp-download/ https://showbox.run/ https://kodi.software/

I'm confused. I've listened or skipped through 3 episodes and have yet to hear a song. Is that representative of the podcast?
