James Corden - Take a Break

"Time Crisis, back in effect. I'm joined by Jake, a man who's about to get married/got married - depends how you look at it. We'll be talking about Time Crisis topics like John Mayer, the Grateful Dead, maybe even Boz Scaggs. Lot of guitarists. This is Time Crisis."

Topics

Jake talks about his upcoming wedding, and its announcement in the New York Times. Ezra talks about Sean Spicer at the Emmys, Jake recounts his viral Instagram take-down of John Mayer at the Dead & Company's Hollywood Bowl show, breaking down their tone, touch, and lyricism. The Crew dive into America's "most patriotic band", Madison Rising. James Corden busts in, talks boy bands, and is baffled by the show and its chill vibes. He claims he doesn't know who the Grateful Dead are and leaves after reading an email about Boz Scaggs.  The top five prompts a breakdown of the lyrics of "Bodak Yellow" and an elaborate Beats 1 reboot of The Wizard of Oz, with Taylor Swift as the Wicked Witch, Cardi B as Dorothy, Thom Yorke as the Tin Man, Ed Sheeran as the Lion, Bruno Mars as the Scarecrow, and Zane Lowe as the Wizard.

Quotes

James Corden: "Why did you call it Time Crisis? Is it because of the computer game Time Crisis?"
Ezra: "Kind of. They told me I needed to come up with a name, I seriously was at Dave & Buster's and I was watching somebody play Time Crisis and I was like, 'Well, this radio show we're gonna talk about music from the past and history, so Time Crisis,' it made sense. It was inspiration."
