S02 E29: The Itch

We here at Awkward Silences are clever people, but only clever enough to land half of the witty jabs we throw. Case in point: The Itch is a good episode title this week, since we deal with guilty pleasures, those songs that lurk in the recesses of your brain, urging you to indulge in them, even though you shouldn't. Hardy-har!

Oh, but had we managed to work in the detail that Tyler developed a rash from poison ivy over the weekend, well, that would have been brilliant, no? In any case, if there's one thing we excel at unfailingly, it's laziness, so the title stays. Deal with it... and enjoy!

Little known fact: Babs and Barry were born as Siamese twins, joined at the beard.


Paula Cole - I Don't Want To Wait
Terry Bush - Maybe Tomorrow (The Littlest Hobo Theme Song)

Filter - Take A Picture

Eve 6 - Beautiful Oblivion
Tal Bachman - She's So High
Fountains of Wayne - Stacy's Mom

Limp Bizkit - Nookie
Good Charlotte - Seasons

Donna Lewis - I Love You Always Forever


A rather admirable mash-up of The Littlest Hobo Theme Song and one of Lily Allen's songs.

S02 E27: Quick Fix

Why hello, listeners. Were you waiting for an episode that never came last week? Oh dear. Well, the good news is we've got all new content this week. Bad news: Alissa's not there for all of it. But we'll be back to normal next week. Cheers!

(How fresh...)


I'm not telling. So there.
