Here’s part two of our “What Makes Us Talk” soul-searching, cringe-worthy, yaptastic “Songs That Changed Your Life” show.

Once again, it’s TWO FREAKIN’ HOURS long, and replete with expletives, so put some headphones on, or send the kids to bed, or roll up the windows, or something. Not kid friendly, most of the time, lemme just say.

And as always, you can comment here, or on our Facebook group (if you’re into that sorta thing), and feel free to pass the link along to your friends, if you think it’s not the sort of thing that’ll shatter the bond between the two of you.

Unless you then write a really good song about it, in which case, let ‘er RIP.

Ready to learn WAY TOO MUCH about the internal workings of your illustrious hosts? The three of us convened once again in the Unknown Studio to put together the LONGEST show we’ve ever done. That’s right, MORE TALKING THAN EVER BEFORE.

We went on a quest looking for songs that changed our lives in some way. Whether these songs remind of a particular formative moment in our lives, or just captured a memory for us.

That’s right, it’s flashback time (don’t worry: it’s not a clip show, nobody’s jumping a tank full of sharks, and it’s not a “Very Special” episode).

It is, however, full of swearing (I think we made it 20 seconds before someone dropped the F bomb), so send the kids to bed, or put on the headphones before ya let ‘er rip.

Warning: TWO HOURS OF AUDIO FOLLOWS. We just can’t figure out when to stop talking, it seems.
