Five Things #165

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. Yet another great episode of the Reply All podcast. The story is far more interesting than the title will have you believe! — The Woman in the Air Conditioner

  2. I'd never really appreciated how great the bass line is in Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell's version of Ain't No Mountain High Enough. The visualisations really bring it to life — Watch Animated Visualisations of the Bass Lines for Motown Classics

  3. I'm firmly in the second camp on this — Should we take a few long holidays, or lots of short ones?

  4. A really interesting piece on how language evolves and the pointlessness of trying to stop it doing so — Why it’s time to stop worrying about the decline of the English language

  5. The Verge's Future of Music series is back with an episode on sampling in pop music — How the Despacito producers use online sample stores to create hits
