Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is arguably the greatest pop song ever. And it's definitely the scariest. This Halloween, we thought we'd take a crack at finding out what makes it so spooky, and why we can't stop listening to it.
If there's one pop song practically everybody loves, it'd have to be "Single Ladies." In this episode, we listen for what makes that song so great. As we find out, "Single Ladies" might be more about what it doesn't do than what it does.
