Brainwaves – Sept. 27, 2016 – The Left/Right Show

Brainwaves iconAs Hillary and Donald debate in the U.S. this week, Brainwaves tackles the left/right divide with a special episode. Every song in the first half of the show has “left” in the title. In the second half, we veer rightwards.

But it’s not political, it’s all about the music! With music like Suzanne Vega’s “Left of Center,” Mat Kearney’s “Nothing Left to Lose” and the Replacements “Left of the Dial.” Followed by songs including Jesus Jones’ “Right Here Right Now,” Radiohead with “Everything in its Right Place” and Vance Joy with “We All Die Trying to Get it Right.”

Choosing left or right was never so fun.
