What's a song salad?
We're so glad you asked. A Song Salad is a short song about a random topic in a random style of music. Our show documents the writing process for these strange songs and even teaches you a bit about music along the way.
What do you mean 'Random'?
Each week, we randomize our list of 500 music genres to pick a style, and then we hit "Random Article" on Wikipedia to get the topic! We learn a little about both, and then smash them together to make a song. It leads to some pretty wild combinations—like a grindcore song about the fjords of Greenland. Or a ska song about a German model train museum. Or a Celtic pop song about windmills.
So it's like...Funny?
It's like funny! It's also like educational. And sometimes it's even like good! We think the term "edutainment" sums us up pretty well.
