Tony Awards And Shared Songs

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about the 2013 Tony Awards and its winners, including 'Kinky Boots' and 'Pippin.' They'll discuss their favorite performances of the night and how host Neil Patrick Harris puts the Oscars to shame. Next, they talk about the "he said/she said" song, which encompasses breakup songs, never-ever songs, songs of longing and perhaps a little bit of tormented whispering. They'll play favorite examples from artists like The Human League, Stars, Marvin Gaye and The Postal Service. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
