MASTAS Episode 7: Mazzy Star, "Fade Into You"

Submitted by on April 22, 2016 – 6:51 AMNo Comment


Special guest Joe Reid joins us as we open the listener mailbag and pluck out Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You," our most-requested song.

This sad '90s classic leads us everywhere from emotional trends in pop music to those short songs you put on mix tapes. Oh, and Sarah and Mark continue their ongoing discussion of Candlebox. Tweet us at talksongs with your requests, mixtape preferences, and ideal soundtrack cut from My So-Called Life.

And then go download "Not An Addict" by K's Choice, because it's basically the same song.

Read Sarah's Tomation Nation essay about short songs on mix tapes.

Make sure you read Everybody Loves Our Town, Mark Yarm's oral history of the grunge scene.

Here's some info on the ABBA museum (with a special exhibit about Swedish pop).
