Music Ranked! Crosby, Stills, Nash (and sometimes Young)

July 8, 2020/Music Ranked

The Hersey boys talk about one of the first rock and roll super groups (as far as they know, anyway): Crosby, Stills, and Nash.  They also discuss CSNY and how these four artist mix-n-matched their way to musical glory.  As always, Eric brings the research, Todd brings the snide remarks.

Right from the start the Herseys waste no time and start asking questions they don’t know the answer to. This time, it was dealing with vowels.

… And Sometimes Y

The vowels are simple, right? A, E, I, O, U.

But if you remember when you were learning these lovely letters – you get the whole…and sometimes Y ending.

Was this your first time dealing with the verbal asterisk we call Y? Very likley.

Merriam-Webster does a fantastic job explaining to us why Y is sometimes a vowel. We will let the dictionary people do their job. We will continue on with the silliness.

… And Sometimes Pluto

Are you old enough to remember when Pluto was a planet? Many of us still hold true to our little rhyme to help us remember the order of planets.

My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizza(pies)

Without Pluto, we have zero pizza(pies).

In 2006 Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet. This was a huge problem for many.

… And Sometimes February

Since we are talking about rhymes to help you remember – let’s try this one out.

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
All the rest have thirty-one,
But February’s twenty-eight,
The LEAP YEAR, which comes once in four,
Gives February one day more.

Okay – this entire poem is a stretch. The first two lines are great. Ending on 31 would be fine. The whole February lines are garbage.

We were also today years old when we found out it was Hath and not Past.
