The Story Song Podcast

THE STORY SONG PODCAST is the music review, comedy, pop culture podcast that provides commentary, analysis, and the history of narrative songs from all genres and all eras—from obscure one-hit wonders to well-known classics, and some of the biggest hits of all time. Join your hosts as they discuss details only hinted at in the lyrics and speculate about every aspect of each song. We tell the story of the songs that tell a story.


episode 114: The Weight by The Band

Weight just a minute! It’s another episode of THE STORY SONG PODCAST! Join your hosts as they review the 1968 classic “The Weight” by influential rock band, The Band. In this Summer of Symbolism episode, we pull into Nazareth to get CPR certified, look for a mattress sale, and shop for a bag big enough for your burdens. So feed Jack the dog (when you can), catch a cannonball, and come on let’s go downtown on this episode of THE STORY SONG PODCAST. Say hey to Fanny for us.
