Song Exploder - Episode 233 with Rick Astley

Have you ever been Rickrolled? We've fallen victim many times but most recently it took the form of an email from our kid - Check out my grades for the semester. We blindly clicked the link, excited to celebrate mostly A's and B's, then "Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you." Over thirty years did this 80's mega tune become a mega meme? Wanting to know more about this earworm - we listened to episode 233 of Song Exploder. The song that was #1 in over 25 countries and the video that has over a billion views was created by mixing Britain, a break up, and a baritone? Give this a listen and Rick will tell you the whole story.
