Want your mind blown? Listen to this episode.
Semiotic researcher Charles Leech drops by to explain how and why we get goosebumps when we hear certain songs, and how rock music almost didn't exist if not for a guy called Palestrina.
Charles relates some utterly fascinating facts and logic surrounding the science of music in this episode. I'm still shaking my head.

New Order - The Perfect Kiss
Grouplove - Tongue Tied
The Beatles - She Loves You
Dear Rouge - Wanna Wanna
