EPISODE 291 – like Loyd Grossman pasta sauces but for rap


Today, one poor tired questioneer asks how to stop being kept awake by their mum’s sex noise. Any advice for them? Apart from cranking up Answer Me This! Episode 291 for forty-three minutes of respite?

We speak of:

hat world records
rodeo clowns
bank robbery
converting to Judaism
baht vs Bitcoin
Craig David’s Toffee Crisps vs Busta Rhymes’ Courvoisier
Papal holidays
presidential golf
Castel Gandolfo
the pronunciation of ‘niche’
shaking like a Polaroid picture

Plus: Olly will SEE YOU IN HELL if you use Shazam during the pub quiz music round; Helen has a terrible confession to make about Pitbull; and Martin the Sound Man is panicking about what to talk about if he is ever invited on a lads’ holiday with the Pope. We smell an odd couple sitcom…

In today’s Bit of Crap on the App, we contemplate the wellbeing of the boys brought together as McBusted, and of Jason Orange’s tearducts. Hear it and not-weep on your iDevices, Android or Windows gadgets.

    Very late to the party on this one. I had always thought the most notorious product placement song was Lola by the Kinks, where the original lyric was “coca-cola” and not “cherry cola.” And they had to change it after pressure from Coke.

    First time listener, here… one of Roman Mars’s disciples.

    A slight twist to your own suggestion… I think the anonymous lad could load the pertinent bits of this AMT episode onto his mum’s iPod… give it a new title, like “Michael Bolton’s greatest love song” or “energy workout”. Let mum and friend discover it when the time is right. If the boy is really creative, he could intermix parts of the podcast with other appropriate music, just to get their attention but maybe not spoil the mood entirely… just to maximize the awkwardness.

    Thanks for the show.

    Product placement in songs? I don’t know if this song has made it very far on your side of the Atlantic, but here’s Macklemore’s stupid and subtly racially-problematic Cadillac-themed song “White Walls”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PLifPUIuic&feature=kp

    That Dick’s Burgers is two blocks from my school and I’m really tired of people bringing those greasy paper bags to class.

    I’ll have you know I’m very attractive.
