Rob Harvilla Talks ’90s Bangers & His New 60 Songs That Explain The ’90s Book

When all is said and done, Rob Harvilla will make at least 120 episodes of his podcast 60 Songs That Explain The ’90s. As you might’ve guessed from the title, this was not the plan. Rob’s show is my favorite music podcast in the world, and its willingness to veer outside its own bounds is one of the great things about it. The idea, at least as far as I can tell, was to use individual and iconic songs — the first three episodes were on Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know,” the Gin Blossoms’ “Hey Jealousy,” and the Wu-Tang Clan’s “C.R.E.A.M.” — to explore what was going on during this particular decade. But Rob’s explanations are never just explanations, and the show became another thing.
