It's the FRIDAY'S BEST POP SONG EVER podcast episode #6

As new episodes of the Friday's Best Pop Song Ever podcast come faster and faster, we move closer to our goal of it becoming a weekly, rather than a monthly podcast, and from there to it becoming an inescapable part of everyday life, like work and sleep. Until that happens, though, be sure to enjoy the latest episode, which concerns "Haunted", a song by the Pogues that appeared on the soundtrack of Alex Cox's 1986 film Sid and Nancy. If you're unaccustomed to hearing a song by the Pogues described as "beautiful" and "lilting", you best listen to this episode, where I uncover the band's secret weapon, bassist and vocalist Cait O'Riordan.

Please note that the Friday's Best Pop Song Ever podcast is now on Stitcher and, having noted that, please subscribe. If you like what you hear, I also ask that you rate and review the podcast. You--or I, at least--will be glad you did.
