Track Listing Podcast

TRACK LISTING PODCAST

The weekly podcast where a musician (Nick LaGrasta), a painter (Caleb Brown), and a comedian (Chris Darden) review soundtracks, tribute albums, and random compilations of the last few decades to try and decide if they are actually any good. Joined by occasional guests, the hosts draw insight from their respective backgrounds to discuss music, film, and pop culture, while they engage in a nostalgic and comedic review of each week's selected album—track by track.

All Episodes

We're back from the grave and seeking revenge on soundtracks. This episode is the Crow! Caleb picked this 1994 cult classic which is littered with epic grunge and goth hits. Bands like The Cure, Stone Temple Pilots, Nine Inch Nails, The Jesus and Mary Chain and more! The Crow holds up and we had a blast discussing it. It's still the only goth super hero movie to date! Chris brought back an edition of Vocal Fry that really squawked and we again recommend our favorite bird song. Fire it up T-Birds, this episode rules! CAW!

Shaquille O'Neal. Many of you know him from his Icy Hot and auto insurance commercials but did you know he can act and rap as well?? This needed to be fervently discussed so Chris picked Steel (Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture) for this week's episode. For the game, Nick put together an edition of Super Group that was both challenging and really fun. There are some wild tracks on this album by some familiar artists (Ice Cube, Mobb Depp, Tevin Campbell and of course Shaquille himself). We get deep into this movie on this ep. Joking aside this movie is trash. It is a bad bad movie, and not even really the fun kind of bad. You can't even watch it in HD. But we still love Shaq! Consider this our love letter to the big guy. His rhymes hold up! Honestly, he can do no wrong. Enjoy!

We had to record 50 luxury podcast episodes in one night to save the life of our little brother who has fallen into a life podcasting crime. We botched it and only through one: the soundtrack to Gone in 60 Seconds! Nick picked this episode and we got really revved up in this one. We swerve all over the highway while talking about this Nic Cage masterpiece from 2000. 1st Cage movie on the pod! We couldn't believe it either! Caleb prepared an extra devious edition of Super Group that stumped us pretty good. This is our longest episode yet because we had a lot to talk about such as: Moby, DMX, Ice Cube, The Cult, Chemical Brothers and of course boosting cars. Strap in...LET'S GO!

The Track Listing guys entered a pact, that if we weren't all married by 28, we'd start a podcast. We eventually got around to it and reviewed the soundtrack for My Best Friend's Wedding. This was a pick by the very funny and talented NY based comedian, Arielle Dundas (@ArielleDundas on Twitter), who joined us in the studio! We get deep into the psychology of the main characters of this film and tear into the cover heavy soundtrack that scores their insane behavior. Chris prepared a round of Tinsel Town Tunes which goes over better than usual and we recommend our favorite karaoke song. It was great to have a guest on the pod after a long while and shoutout to Arielle for putting up with us. We may have a few more friends dropping by soon so stay tuned!

What's in the box this week? WHAT'S IN THE BOX?! It's the soundtrack to Se7en! Caleb picked this episode and if you've seen the movie, you'll know that this episode gets pretty, prettyyy dark. So warning to all of you squeamish Track Listers out there because even though we talk about the movie, we also talk about jazz (Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker, specifically). Nick put together an edition of Super Group and Caleb and Chris actually do alright for a change. We add our favorite deadly sin song to the Official Track Listing Spotify Playlist but what's yours? Get at us on instagram or twitter!

"You're listening to the Track Listing Podcast? Nice. You have great taste in podcasts." And that's how you met the person that you would unfairly project all your flawed ideals of love onto for almost 2 years. This episode is 500 Days of Summer! Chris picked the soundtrack to this 2009 romantic comedy and we really get into the deeper meaning of the film. Was Joseph Gordon-Levitt a dick? Is Zooey Deschanel faking liking Ringo? Is this movie a huge eye-roll? Find out for yourself. Caleb put together a round of Super Group for us which totally stumped Nick and Chris. Can you do better? We also recommend our favorite "summer" song. Some great tracks on here from Hall and Oates, Feist, Regina Spektor, The Smiths and many more. Listen to this episode in a public place and try to find your soulmate/person who will destroy you for the next 500 days.

Time to gleam the cube and wax the record b-side cuz we're dropping into the hottest skateboarding video game soundtrack ever produced: Tony Hawk' Pro Skater! Nick picked this album and hot damn, is it still a jam. Nick and Chris played the Playstation game as kids but Caleb will never know what it was like to hit a Kickflip McTwist as Rune Glifberg at the last second to win the Trick Attack. Chris punished everyone's ears with an old game called "Vocal Fry" and we recommend our favorite bird song. Tony HAWK (get it?). This is the first video game soundtrack we've done but we want to do more! Hit us up with your favorite video game soundtrack and we'll review it!

We did it. We found our white whale, our holy grail...a copy of the Idle Hands soundtrack. Big thanks to Blake from the So Grosse | Much Pointe | Such Blank podcast for sending it to us. With tracks from Blink-182, Rob Zombie, Motley Crüe and the Offspring this punk rock and heavy metal soundtrack scored the horror comedy cult classic which got pulled from theaters and shelves shortly after its release. We think it was because of satan and murder stuff. Thanks Joe Lieberman! For the game, Nick prepared an edition of Covers Blown that almost cost Caleb and Chris their friendship. Should this movie have stayed buried? Or are we glad it rose from the grave just like Mick and Pnub?? One thing is for sure: Devon Sawa gives the best physical performance of any actor we've ever seen. End of discussion. Enjoy and stay busy because you know what they say...

We're taking on another classic here over at Track Listing. Beverly Hills Cop! The iconic Eddie Murphy movie has been on our short list for quite a while and Caleb finally picked it for this episode. Axel F by the legendary Harold Faltermeyer has got to be one of the best themes of all time but this soundtrack has so much more! Artists like: Patti LaBelle, Shalamar, The Pointer Sister, Glenn Frye (of Eagles. Yes, just Eagles. No "the". More on that later). Caleb also put together another edition of Spotify Feud which had us guessing top tracks from the mighty Spotify stats. We add our favorite song from an actor to the official Track Listing Playlist. We had a lot to say about this soundtrack so strap in. Perfect road trip podcast for that beautiful drive from Detroit to Beverly Hills!

Ice Cube, Nas, LL Cool J, Public Enemy and many others came together for one glorious album. Unfortunately it was for Street Fighter: The Movie: The Soundtrack! A new challenger approaches as we review our first soundtrack for a video game movie. Chris picked this episode and he also prepared a special video game version of Sample Sale. This hip hop soundtrack has almost as many familiar faces as this movie does characters. All your favorites! From JCVD as the all American, Guile to Deion Sanders as a rapper! It's insane! It should be said that we here at Track Listing try not to get political but we are in huge support of a new world order, the Pax Bisonica. M. Bison just seems like trustworthy strong leader who can fly and shoot lightning. He's got our vote!

The Track Listing boys all applied to Stanford to get our doctorate in podcasting but somehow our transcript got mixed up with another podcast's transcript! Our only option was to review the Orange County soundtrack this week and get some sort of catharsis. This was Nick's pick and we took a road trip down memory lane for the Colin Hanks/Jack Black teen flick that epitomized the early 2000's era. With tracks from the Offspring, Foo Fighters, Crazy Town, Cake, and Phantom Planet, we really burn down the admissions office with this ep. Nick also prepared an edition of Covers Blown for us that uncovered songs we absolutely wished never existed. At the end of this episode, we recommend our favorite color song and add those gems to the Track Listing Spotify Playlist. We dedicate this episode to all the kids trapped in Orange County who might end up at a safety college lest they live out their lives stuck in their parents' mansions.

In the distant future (2021), all good music disappears and only Keanu can save us because he has a floppy disc full of .wav files jammed in his brain. That's the plot to this week’s soundtrack, Johnny Mnemonic. Caleb picked this 1995 cyberpunk soundtrack and provided a new game that had Nick and Chris FEUDing for hours afterward. You’ll hear some trippy tracks from Stabbing Westward, Helmet, Orbital, Bono & The Edge (sorry U other 2). We also dig in deep to this flick which has a star studded cast, even a goddamn dolphin. Check out our Spotify Playlist to see our recommended songs of future past! Now excuse me, I’m having a case of the black shakes.

Do you like the Track Listing Podcast? I’ve been a big Track Listing fan ever since the 2019 episode on Reality Bites. But I think this week’s episode the American Psycho soundtrack is the groups undisputed masterpiece. You can practically hear every nuance of every hot take the boys have on this 2000 controversial cult classic. Chris really came into his own (commercially and artistically) by picking this soundtrack and coming up with a brand new game about musicians having public meltdowns. The whole episode has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the commentary a big boost. Most people probably don't subscribe to the Official Track Listing Playlist. But they should, because they've added their favorite Psycho Killer songs and the playlist is also a personal statement about the podcast itself. This is a great, great episode, a personal favorite.

Swayze, Snipes, Leguizamo...no, it's not a 90s B action movie. It's a movie about 3 drag queens on a road trip who may or may not have murdered a cop. This week's soundtrack is To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar. Yes, that's the film's title. We wrote that correctly. Nick picked this episode, Caleb prepared a game of Super Group to stump us and we also recommend our favorite song with an absurdly long title. We learned a lot about the drag world and a lot about ourselves this episode. Please now refer to us as Penny Kravitz, Steely Jan, and Jenny Loggins. Submit your guesses as to who is who.

Sometime in your 30s you begin to realize your limitations and that you will never accomplish certain goals and dreams. Luckily, there's a soundtrack about it! It's called The Big Chill and it was Caleb's pick for this week's episode. The 1983 star studded movie has one of the most iconic soundtracks of all time, featuring greats like Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Three Dog Night and Procol Harum. Nick prepared a grueling edition of Super Group which was as difficult as our collective existential crisis during the recording. Tomorrow isn't promised, so let's all get together at our friend's estate in South Carolina, recognize our mortality, dance to some old records and bully Jeff Goldblum.

NAME: Jericho Jackson NICKNAME: "Action" HOME: Detroit PROFESSION: Cop OBJECTIVE: Uhhh unclear. MUSICAL TASTE: Listen to find out! This week's episode is Action Jackson, the Carl Weathers cult classic. Chris picked this soundtrack and it's got some great 80's R&B jams from the Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge and of course VANITY. Chris also prepared a round of Tinsel Town Tunes (with some sea shanty vibes?) and we recommend our favorite "action" song. We need help from our listeners on this one, please let us know if Vanity is a good in this movie or if Prince is just inhabiting her soul.

New Years Eve sucks. Tons of pressure to have a good time, everywhere is usually crowded and overpriced, plus you gotta get that kiss or you'll be cursed to never find love. But this soundtrack definitely makes it suck a lot less though: 200 Cigarettes. It's an 1999 film about New Years in 1981 NYC. With tracks from Blondie, The Cars, Kool & the Gang and more celebs that you can shake a noisemaker at, this episode was a ball dropping blast. This was Nick's pick but Caleb prepared the game (an installment of Super Group). We're late to celebrating New Year's but all the cool kids show up late to the party anyway. Happy 2021!

We're back and coming in hot into 2021 with a classic(?) 90's soundtrack: Scream 2!! We decided to make this a group pick because of a birthday gift Chris received from his lovely and brilliant girlfriend, Kelsey (tune in to understand why). This episode has almost as many plot twists and turns as the Wes Craven self-referential horror sequel itself. Nick dazzled us with an edition of Super Group (the Only Connect inspired game) and we recommend our favorite song with a scream in it. Great to be back in the studio. We think we love you. So what are you so afraid of?

It's easy to forget the true reason for the holidays: helping lost loved ones, who have returned to this mortal realm as sentient snowmen. This week's very special Christmas/Holiday/Decemberween episode is Jack Frost (1998). Not the 1997 slasher comedy, the 1998 far more disturbing one with Michael Keaton and music by Hanson. It's also the last episode of 2020! What a fun cap to end a goddamn banner year at the ol' Track Listing household. Chris put together a once in a season game (TinselTIME Tunes) and we recommend our favorite "Comeback" song. We're really thankful for all of you listeners out there and from the bottom of our hearts: Michael Keaton is the one true god who will return as snow to freeze away our pain. See you in 2021!

"Listen up, cause I'm only telling you this once: It's 2033. The world is *screwed* now.  You see, a while ago this humongous comet came crashing into the earth. Bam, total devastation. End of the world as we know it..." That's the setting for this week's episode, Tank Girl! The post apocalyptic cult 90s classic. And I know what you're thinking; please let that comet get here faster. Chris picked this soundtrack and the gang may not ever forgive him. The music has a fun grungey vibe but the movie...WOW. Someone needs to take the makers to Kangaroo Court. Caleb unleashed a war themed edition of Covers Blown and we each recommend our favorite military song. Enjoy, and lock up your sons!

Hot damn, what an episode! Nick picked the soundtrack to Singles (1992) and we couldn't have had a better time discussing Cameron Crowe's grunge era classic. Put on a flannel and transport yourself back to a time when Gen Xers roamed Seattle, met at Alice in Chains concerts and confessed their love via answering machines. Nick also provided the game and put together an epic edition of Super Group. Can't wail about this 'sode enough. Don't be a cob nobbler, if you're bound and hagged and you're not a total lamestain, come jam with us!

Caleb is dead set on making this a vampire only podcast so he picked Twilight for this week's episode. As many of you know, we are HUGE Twilight heads. Can't stop debating about Team Jacob this, Team Edward that...okay we can't lie, this movie and soundtrack are bananas and we definitely dunk on it. If you're a Twilight fan please listen to the ep and share your thoughts but we feel we are fair in our critiques! I will say, Nick seems more smitten with the franchise than he leads on (he's seen all 5 movies)! Steamy vampires aside, this was a very fun episode. Chris put together another edition of nobodies favorite game, Tinseltown Tunes and we recommend "a song a lot older than it seems". Take a bite and drink it in!

This week's episode is Eddie Griffin's masterpiece, Undercover Brother. This soundtrack was a Chris pick (suggested by an old buddy, Kyle) and it's filled to the gills with grooves from the all-time funkiest. Caleb brought back a classic game that we haven't played in a while, Covers Blown and we recommend our favorite sibling song. Also, Nick gives some insider secrets about slappin' the bass and whether it's frowned upon or not. Does this 2002 spoof of blaxploitation films hold up by today's standards? Tune in to hear 3 white guys' opinion that no one asked for!

This episode is a real corker! The Tropic Thunder soundtrack, a tribute to the harrowing story of Vietnam veteran, Four Leaf Tayback. This was a Nick pick and the soundtrack's got some classic Vietnam Era jams (Creedence, Steppenwolf, Edwin Starr) with some surprises (Crystal Method, Enigma) thrown in there too. It's a helluva star-studded cast (Stiller, Cruise, Downey, Jack Black, McConaughey, McBride) and some of them make, uh...interesting choices. Could this movie be made today? We know the answer, because we are the authority on all subjects. We played Nick's famous Rhyme Time and recommend our favorite parody song to the Official Track Listing Playlist. Tune in and GET SOME!

Because we're still on the spooky train, Caleb picked the soundtrack to the Faculty. Aliens AND teachers? Doesn't get scarier than that. This is a really fun ep. We dive deep into this flawed but highly entertaining 90's cult classic. It's got an amazing cast and an iconic soundtrack (for some people). Nick's shares some behind the scenes info on equally legendary bands Pink Floyd, Oasis and Creed. Chris took a big swing with a scary game called Horror Scorer that went over fine. So crack open a pen of scat and give this one a listen. Forget about your troubles for a while because at least we're not under alien attack...yet.

Imagine your new next door neighbor was a vampire! Even scarier, what if he was a vampire named Jerry Dandrige? Get ready for a spooky halloween episode because Chris picked the soundtrack to Fright Night! Listen in sheer terror as we discuss the J. Geils Band, Autograph, Sparks and other ghoulish musicians. And if you aren't dead from shock, join us as we play a bone chilling edition of Caleb's Dollar Dash. Have you goosebumps yet? You will, as we describe a movie so hair-raising, it stars Chris Sarandon (Prince Humperdinck) and Amanda Bearse (Marcy from Married with Children)! The horror!! Don't listen to this episode alone! Seriously, tell a friend about our podcast. Sweet screams and GOOD FRIGHT!

Is it better to speak or die? Are we classical music people? Peach or Apricot? These are the questions we ask on this week's episode, Call Me By Your Name. Nick picked this soundtrack. He also put together an edition of Rhyme Time that'll knock you off your bicicletta. Hey real talk though, they're selling the house in Northern Italy where this movie was filmed, hit us up if you wanna buy it. We can play volleyball, listen to 80s Italian radio hits and then stare into a fire. Seriously think about it.

This week's episode is a Caleb pick: Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Michael Cera is back and this time he's in a band, again! Kat Dennings is a record executive's daughter who can't stop drooling over Cera's sexy mumblecore ass. I shouldn't poke fun because this movie is actually based on our Nick's life. Take a journey with us to 2008 New York, when hipster bands ruled the city and parking was was incredibly easy. Chris brings back Tinseltown Tunes possibly for the last time (address hatemail to his Twitter).  And if you didn't know already, we here at Track Listing have our own infinite playlist on Spotify.

In order to create a podcast, you must be of noble birth. Thankfully, we found a degenerate gambler named Geoffrey to forge our credentials. You too can change your stars and follow your feet because this week, Chris picked A Knight's Tale! It's a movie where Heath Ledger is some lowborn scum who grifts his way into jousting tournaments set to "modern" rock music. Caleb brought back MC Synopsis as we continue to add to our list of rap songs that summarize entire movie plots. Nick regaled us with behind the music tales from songs on this soundtrack and we add our favorite anachronistic song to the playlist. A Knight's Tale has been weighed, it has been measured, and we have found it to be a very solid episode. Also, listeners: Please message Nick and Caleb about their new favorite genre of music, bardcore aka tavernwave.

Vroom into our DMs on Instagram and tell us what you think!

Due to our love of robbing banks, stealing cars and listening to music at all times, Baby Driver the most apropos soundtrack we've ever done. Our first two part episode! This is part one! Caleb picked this masterpiece and it's a newish movie so you may have to pump the brakes because we've got some SPOILERS ahead. Baby Driver is a perfectly choreographed film set to music, so we did the same. If you play the soundtrack in time with this episode, your ears will start bleeding in time with Nick and Caleb's during the 2nd round of Chris' Tinseltown Tunes game. So buckle up, wear some sunglasses in doors, download this episode to your first generation iPod and lose all your friends, uh I mean, enjoy.

How shocked were you when you found out that contract killer was actually the most successful person in your graduating class? This week's episode is Grosse Pointe Blank. This was a Chris pick and it's a KILLER soundtrack and awesome movie that you should really watch!! We play a round of Caleb's Dollar Dash and Nick and Chris crush it this go around. Our faith is restored in Dan Aykroyd, John Cusack, Joan Cusack...and the other 2 Cusacks that appear in this film (can you find them?). Tune in or wait for us to appear on local radio in Grosse Pointe next week when we will confront a DJ whom we haven't seen since we stood her up at prom.

Fun Fact: famous painter and philosopher Jim Carrey was actually an actor years ago. We uncovered an old movie he starred in alongside Jeff Daniels called Dumb and Dumber and it has a soundtrack! This was a Nick pick who also put together an edition of Super Group (the Only Connect style game). We recommend a "dumb" song and discuss how incredibly bad some of the bands' names are on this album. Stay tuned until the end of the episode for a cameo from Fred Stoller who was in Dumb and Dumber (GET OFF THA PHONE).

Please enjoy* Once upon a time in Brooklyn, three hipsters tried to rip off some guy named Marsellus Wallace. Turned out, Marsellus was very understanding and a huge fan of the podcast so he let us go but only if we did the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. We had to bring in Leslie McDonel (Actor, Singer, Broadway star and close friend) to dig deep into the Quentin Tarantinoverse. Caleb pulls the equivalent of a pawnshop Zed and subjects us to another round of Vocal Fry. Anywho, Woodstock 50 is CANCELED!!! Huge bummer but let's carry on its spirit.

Other than music and movies, we here at Track Listing have one interest: indiscriminately murdering vampires. They are a plague and must be driven from this world at all costs. So the Blade soundtrack was the obvious choice for this week's episode. The biggest takeaway from this soundtrack is how many artists followed instructions to only write songs about the vampire war. Also, that Wesley Snipes thought he could avoid paying taxes by staying in character as Blade for 7 years. Chris bludgeoned the gang with a game about identifying vampires that is way too long (please feel free to fast forward). We recommend some songs that "suck" and ponder why all vampires love techno. Stay tuned and happy hunting.

Remember dancing? We miss it too. That's why Chris picked Saturday Night Fever as this week's episode. It harkens back to the days when the Track Listing boys would get hopped up on speed, drive to Bay Ridge and demand everyone to clear the dance floor. Have you all seen this movie?! It is not the Bee Gees love fest we thought it would be. The world of disco was DARK! We play Caleb's Mindmeld Money Dash where we (failed to) win REAL MONEY. Lastly, we want to apologize to Nick for continually pushing the boundaries of what he can edit into a single episode. 17 tracks with a 10 clue game? The wizard made it happen. See you suckas on the lights!

Ah, the wonderful world of cocaine trafficking. Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems. It's a lot like podcasting. Almost exactly. So naturally, Nick picked the Blow soundtrack for this episode. We nosedive into this 2001 Johnny Depp vehicle and discuss his various wigs. Nick also introduced a new game called "Rhyme Time" which we knock out of the park. Most of this episode we discuss whether drug dealing on a massive scale is worth it or not. On one hand, you make $60 Million. On the other, your daughter won't visit you in prison. Worth it? Listen to find out.

You wanna see a dead body? Go to your nearest railroad track, put your headphones on and we'll lead you there. This episode is the Stand by Me soundtrack. The ol' Stephen King story with more soda shop music than you can shake a (dead body poking) stick at. Chris brought in a NEW GAME called Switch Hits! We all get emotional during this ep and dwell on our own childhoods. We yearn for simpler times when we could almost get hit by trains, have knives pulled on us and get attacked by leeches. Enjoy the episode and ask yourself, do you have friends like the ones you had when you were 12? You do. The boys of Track Listing Podcast are way better than those whiny tweens.

You don't believe it? Well then you're about to get hacked! 90's style (sunglasses on, with Winamp visualizations)! Caleb designed an extra special 50th anniversary game that had REAL PRIZE MONEY.

Eye of newt, wing of bat, finger of dead spouse, Stevie Nick's hat...That's the recipe for Midnight Margaritas! Perfect to drink while listening to this week's episode: the Practical Magic Soundtrack. This was a Nick pick (curse) and we really dig into this cult classic and its witchy songs (incantations). A witch really did curse the set of Practical Magic, but is she to blame for its rotten tomatoes score? Also, Nick stirred the cauldron with a fiendish edition of Tinseltown Tunes. DISCLAIMER: Due to our strong personal convictions, we wish to stress that this episode in no way endorses a belief in the occult.

It was a Caleb pick. We got a little behind with the episodes so we gotta play a little catch up, mmkay? And I don't know if you got the memo about the new game Chris came up with? Nick sending out another memo to limit the game rounds. Yeeah, he had to come in on Saturday to finish the edit. Mmm, yeah. I'll make sure you get another copy of that memo. Also, we even have a mystery shoutout from someone in the movie as some extra flair. Oh, and remember, next Friday is hawaiian shirt day.

We all know the only goal of high school is to get a date for prom. If you didn’t go, you’ll never truly be a complete human being. We're fairly certain that’s the lesson behind this week’s episode Pretty in Pink. Chris picked this episode because, you know, he’s emotionally stunted and peaked in high school etc. But also it’s a killer soundtrack. Caleb came up with a new game (plz submit names for it!) and pitted Nick and Chris against each other. Who will win? Who will get a prom date? Who is the Duckie of the Podcast? All these questions will be answered on this episode of TRACK LISTING!

According to Jim Cunningham, human behavior can be perfectly categorized into a product of fear or love. Please listen to this podcast and place on the lifeline whether it is a product of fear or love. This week Caleb picked the Donnie Darko soundtrack. The original soundtrack is mainly score but the British re-release has all those tasty jams, so that's what we're bringin' ya. Also, Chris cooked up a fiendish edition of super group that no one enjoyed. This ep was also made under quarantine so please forgive any sound glitches. Stay safe/sane and please sign our petition to release Jim Cunningham from prison. It's obviously some kind of conspiracy to destroy an innocent man.

LISTENERRRSS...COME OUT TO PLAAA-I-AAAYYY! We're back! Chris picked the Warriors soundtrack because he misses his bros and a time when people could congregate in coordinated outfits. CAN YOU DIG IT?! Caleb was able to prepare an absolutely vicious edition of Super Group (an Only Connect inspired game) that almost started a rumble.  Big thanks to audio wizard Nick for bringing this episode together even though we're separately quarantined.  Other podcasts out here soundin' like trash while the Track Listing boys be soundin' good. All the way back to Coney. Ya hear me, babies? Good. Re-e-al good. Adios.

Subscribe to Track Listing. You'll never grow old, Listener. And you'll never die...but you must feed (send us more subscribers). Our episode this week is Lost Boys. Good friend and broadway star Bryan West joins us in the studio as we contemplate starting our own Vampire Gang/Jim Morrison cover band. Chris brings back an infuriating round of Tinseltown Tunes and we recommend our favorite greasy saxophone song. If you don't know why that's the rec theme then you've clearly never been to a beach concert in Santa Carla.

The Track Listing boyz made a pact that we would lose our virginities by the end of 2020. Trent Rohner got in on the pact and suggested we discuss the American Pie soundtrack. We talk high school, the 90s, and most importantly, Sugar Ray. Nick put together a game based on Only Connect (aka Super Group) and we recommend our favorite First Time song.  And by the way, if you've never listened to Track Listing, we'd say it's feels like warm apple pie.

Forget everything you know about podcasts...and just open your ears. Nick picked Vanilla Sky for this weeks episode and it made us question everything. Are we all living in a simulation? Caleb's Only Connect style game (Super Group) certainly made us wanna scream, "TECH SUPPORT" into the void. This is definitely a cult classic soundtrack and it turned into one of our better episodes. But if you don't listen, we'll tell you all about it in another life when we are both cats.

Pod Boyz, Pod Boyz, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they really appreciate and love all the support from you? We're back with the Bad Boys (1995) soundtrack. Caleb picked this one because he loves that new jack swing babyyyy. Also Bad Boys for Life is in theaters and we're trying to be relevant. Chris prepared a game based on the British game show Only Connect (WE STILL NEED A GOOD NAME FOR THIS. PLZ WRITE IN). We swim deep into the Michael Bay in this ep. The water is warm and full of explosions. Won't you join us?
