In our latest pairing, we pay tribute to the queen of country music as we dive into Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” and shine our light on a lesser known song, “Grandma’s Hands,” from the heyday of Bill Wither’s legendary career.
For our one year anniversary of Flat Sharp, we take a trip down memory lane and revisit two of our favorite artists from previous episodes. This time around we dig into an ominously familiar song from Stevie’s classic period, and celebrate a landmark in American music history by zooming in on a lesser known song from The Band’s debut album.
On our latest show, we pay tribute to two late, great artists who came to define the culture and music of the 1970s and 1980s. Join us as we talk about Bowie’s collage of domestic life that is “Life on Mars?” and George Michael’s snub to conformity in “Freedom ’90.”
The Christmas season just wouldn’t feel the same without Christmas music. On this episode, we discuss some of our holiday favorites and ponder what makes a great Christmas song timeless.
Join us as we close out the Fab Four’s amazing career with a nod to the lesser known songs on Revolver through Abbey Road.
Join us for a speedy tour through the first half of the fab four’s illustrious career. Along the way, we’ll select our favorite hidden gem from each of The Beatles’ first six albums, as well as a cherished B-Side of an early single.
Join us as we dig into the Prelude to Bach’s “Unaccompanied Suite for Cello #1” and the rockabilly classic “Blue Suede Shoes,” that leads off Elvis’ debut album for RCA Victor.
On this episode, special guest Reuben Jackson joins us to talk about Stevie Wonder’s “As,” one of the maestro’s masterpieces from his 1976 double-album Songs in the Key of Life.
On perhaps our most random pairing yet, we discuss the pop supernova that is Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” and then peer into the dark cultural mirror of Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People.”
This is our first “Single,” a bite sized dose of Flat Sharp that zooms in on a topic in under ten minutes. In this first single, Benjamin breaks down Cliff Burton’s legendary bass work on Metallica’s instrumental masterpiece “Orion.”
