Episode 142: Hunter Ferris - Why Do You Like Music?

By Aaron Static Render:

Hunter Farris is the host of "Song Appeal" a podcast that aims to teach the common music listener about music theory. With most people having a negative view of music theory, Hunter does a great job of making it fun to learn because he uses songs that are current and that he likes, instead of stale standards and music you would only listen to if you were in a music theory class.Hunter takes on songs ranging from Fall Out Boy ”Sugar We're Going Down," Charlie Daniels Band "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," horror movie soundtracks, the theme song from Animaniacs, and in his latest episode, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." Join our conversation and find out how Hunter decides which songs to break down and what goes into making Song Appeal. He also shares how he inspired Dr. Paul J. Zak to run a study about the effect of music and story. In addition, I actually learned that Escape, (The Piña Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes, actually has a story to it. Now plug in your earbuds, this is how Hunter Ferris Lives Uncontained!http://songappealofficial.comFacebook.com/SongAppealOfficialTwitter.com/SongAppealnstagram.com/SongAppealPatreon.com/SongAppeal
