The Click Five was an anomaly that needed to be discussed on this show at some point. The research from this episode lead the guys to the discovery of a legendary song writer Adam Schlesinger, a hero from the early 2000s who’s had a strong hand in several of our favorite songs from the era. The episode gets really fun with an embarrassingly in depth analysis of the music video, as well as the lyrics for the breakout (and only) hit, Just the Girl.

Everyone’s taste in music changed over time, and the guys sat down today to map out their musical journey, starting with their very first favorite song, and how preference adapted and got more sophisticated as they aged. They also discuss the question that’s on a lot of twenty-something’s minds these days, is it okay to not emotionally attach to music like you used to? All of that after a quick recap of Thinkercon in Huntsville, Alabama.
