Now, in our current golden age of television, The Music Snobs ask: does music still matter on the small screen? And speaking of unforgettable TV, Arthur, Jehan, Scoop, and Isaac keep it 80s and wonder What If Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” video never happened? Next, prepare for a total blackout when TMS examines the 2013 Billboard charts, discovers a scarcity of African-American artists, and wonders if the Timberlake’s, Macklemore’s, and Adele’s are the future of mainstream soul. Lastly, the crew breaks down their lists of “day late” records: sophomore albums that would have been classics if the artist would have released them first.
