Micro Playlist 3: Purplerain

Ryan Daly creates another micro playlist of songs based on a single* word submitted by a listener. This time, the word is "Purplerain" submitted by Jarrod Alberich, the Yard-Sale Artist. What collection of songs did this random word inspire? Listen and find out! Or read the list directly below this description.


  1. “Make Me Feel" by Janelle Monae
  2. "Debra" by Beck
  3. "Supersoulfighter" by Lenny Kravitz
  4. "On My Own" by Miley Cyrus
  5. "Untitled (How Does It Feel?)" by D'Angelo

* It's supposed to be one word, but Jarrod cheated by mashing two words together. This will show him!

  1. Revenge is truly a dish best served… unsuspectingly i guess? I’m sure Jarrod could’ve never expected you to publicly lambast him with such vitriol, this podcast almost feels like a cyber-trolling hate crime. He’ll probably sleep with the lights on for years to come.

    Okay, all kidding aside, very clever take on the word(s). This was probably the most creative take we’ve had yet. And i loved it. Plus, gotta be honest, hadn’t heard all of these songs before (which is rare, right?). but I love how unapologetically you praised Miley or how vulnerably you described an unfortunate love-making sensory obstacle with D’Angelo, cuz who hasn’t been THERE, right? Kinda like that moment i realized i not only lost the gum i’d been chewing… but WHERE i lost it! :O

    Well played bro. It was a treat to see how far outside the box you were willing to go with a nonsensical word choice.

  2. Next time one of our “friends” (you know who you are) gives me crap about liking the Eagles, I’m going to deflect with “Ryan likes Miley Cyrus!”.

    Seriously, fun show. Weird, but fun. I need to look that Beck song up. Sounds like a hoot.

    Aussie band Regurgitator had a neat Prince tribute song in 1997 called “The Song Formerly Known as..”. I would include a Youtube link, but I’m on a blocked network.
