New 500 Songs Episode — “Pledging My Love”

The new episode of A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs is now up, on “Pledging My Love” by Johnny Ace, the first rock and roller to die young. This one contains a description of death by gunshot. It also contains discussions of a man getting a woman to do all his work uncredited, why the blues was probably partly caused by a plague, and what the love of Jesus has to do with wet pants.
