  • 121 - Can't Stand Losing You

    April 17th, 2023  |  1 hr 7 mins
    can't stand losing you, emotional manipulation, police, shocking sting quotes, suicide, the police

    For the penultimate episode of Policepril, we get ultra-incel with the emotionally manipulative Can't Stand Losing You. And this time.... we brought a friend! Mike Kiniry joins us to take a deep hard look at this one. A pop hit about making someone feel bad for breaking up with you by killing yourself? Sure... why not?

  • 120 - Don't Stand So Close To Me

    April 10th, 2023  |  1 hr 1 min
    don't stand so close to me, maybe other kinds of rape, non-autobiographical, police, statutory rape, the police

    As Policepril marches on, so do the creepy hits. This time, Sting and Co. are talking about a young horny teacher fucking one of his students in the song that was adopted by many during the pandemic... Don't Stand So Close To Me! A very peculiar song for an ex-English teacher to sing and say "it's not about me!" but here we are.

  • 119 - Every Breath You Take

    April 3rd, 2023  |  1 hr 4 mins
    big brother, every breath you take, stalking, synchronicity, the police, yikes

    A very happy Policepril to you all! We're doing a month of some of the creepiest, suprisingest, or possibly misunderstoodiest songs by hit 70's-80's supergroup The Police. We're working backwards in our timeline so we'll start at the end with their biggest hit; the extremely frightening Every Breath You Take. Draw the blinds, find under the covers, and don't make a sound... they'll be watching you.

  • 118 - Sex And Candy

    March 27th, 2023  |  51 mins 48 secs
    90's music, jeff wozniak, marcy playground, no relation, pseudo pedophilia, sex and candy

    The guys try to look as deep as you can into a song that seems to be based off of a remark made by an ex-girlfriends college roommate about a decade earlier and a bunch of stupid made up lingo; Sex And Candy by Marcy Playground. A song that sounds like it's about pedophilia and it isn't but it still sucks.

  • 117 - Under My Thumb

    March 20th, 2023  |  57 mins 17 secs
    blind faith, mind games, misogyny, rolling stones, stockholm syndrome, under my thumb

    Does it get any worse than Brown Sugar? You be the judge! Marc and Seth pick apart another Rolling Stones song and this time, they're excusing and glorifying treating a woman like shit with the non-single Under My Thumb.

  • 116b - Relax (Unedited)

    March 13th, 2023  |  2 hrs 5 mins
    edging, frankie goes to hollywood, leather daddies, premature ejaculation, relax

    This is the full 2 hour discussion about the song Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. There is a lot that got cut out about LGBTQ rights, stories about the gay nightlife in Fort Myers, chunks of stuff we talked about in the music video, some funny banter, and issues and information about things in the queer community writ large. It was really difficult to decide what to cut out so I wanted to also make the whole conversation available if anyone was interested.

  • 116 - Relax

    March 13th, 2023  |  1 hr 22 mins
    edging, frankie goes to hollywood, leather daddies, premature ejaculation, relax

    Seth and Marc get the help of friends Logan and Adam to get deeeeep inside a song that's maybe so obvious that you didn't think it was about what it's about. One of the longest episodeepisodes yet with tons of great conversation about LGBTQ rights so make sure you pack a lunch.

  • 115 - Dude (Looks Like A Lady)

    March 6th, 2023  |  1 hr 4 mins
    aerosmith, dude, dude looks like a lady, incorrect pronouns, transphobia

    Seth and Marc get out the ol' whiteboard to try and make heads or tails out of this classic rock juggernaut that catapulted Aerosmith back into the limelight. Is it transphobic? Is it fetishising? How does he make that "gi-gi-gi-gi-gi-gi-gi-gi" noise so fast?!

  • 114 - Cheeseburger In Paradise

    February 27th, 2023  |  38 mins 27 secs
    cheeseburger in paradise, dumb puns, dumb songs, jimmy buffett, please stop it

    A beach bum's wild fantasy about a delicious burger or a Kafka-esque hellscape in which he wakes up as a full formed "sensuous treat" that has no choice but to desire to eat himself from the outside in? You be the judge.

  • 113 - I'm No Angel

    February 20th, 2023  |  52 mins 32 secs
    allman brothers, bruce springsteen sound alike, gregg allman, i'm not angel, scary

    Another week, another creepy guy talking about cradles... this time, it's Gregg Allman and the song he made famous: "I'm No Angel." Proudly proclaiming how much of a troubled past he has and openly admitting to planned theft. Come on and love me, baby.

  • 112 - Wild World

    February 13th, 2023  |  58 mins 14 secs
    cat stevens, stockholm syndrome, teat for the tillerman, wild world, yusuf, yusuf islam

    If you're "letting someone go" but you're really just trying to frighten them into staying with you, how much of a shitbag are you? Probably a big one. The guys take on Yusuf Islam's Wild World... the song that may have spurned the song I'm Just A Girl by No Doubt.

  • 111 - Young Girl

    February 6th, 2023  |  48 mins 15 secs
    gary puckett, gary puckett and the union gap, gaslighting, mental terrorism, the union gap, young girl

    The guys go back to the Golden Age of music... The Wrecking Crew, the Wall of Sound, and the Horny Old Guy. Seth and Marc take a look at the rollercoaster of emotions that is Young Girl by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. It's in the name!

  • 110 - Jessie's Girl

    January 30th, 2023  |  1 hr 10 mins
    backstabbing, bad friendship, gary's girl, jessie's girl, mania, rick springfield, rick springthorpe

    Seth and Marc call on Doubled Feature's co-host Max to ask themselves "with friend's like Rick, who needs friends?" That's right, they're taking on Rick Springfield's Jessie's Girl and all of the mania and stalking that go along with it.

  • 109 - Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)

    January 23rd, 2023  |  52 mins 59 secs
    for a white guy, offspring, pretty fly, pretty fly white guy, quasi racism, the offspring

    What do you get when you mix a molecular biologist, a former janitor, and some ridicule of the white middle class? Seth and Marc unfortunately find out in this week's episode where they look into the lyrics to Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)

  • 108 - Semi-Charmed Life

    January 16th, 2023  |  1 hr 26 mins
    creampies, crystal meth, primus, semi-charmed life, stephan jenkins, third eye blind

    Seth and Marc look into the true meaning behind one of the 90's upbeat and infection jams; Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind. Is it all as lush and catchy as it sounds or is there a terrible crystal meth addiction and some red panties hidden somewhere in there?

  • 107 - Barbie Girl

    January 9th, 2023  |  1 hr 6 mins
    aqua, aquarium, barbie girl, misogyny, plastic surgery

    Seth and Marc painfully comb over the lyrics to Barbie Girl which are either creepy as hell or misogynistic as hell. Throw in the terrible music video and awful voices and this one hurt.
