We launched the Soundfly podcast, Themes and Variation back in the summer of 2020. Since then we've chatted with all sorts of musicians and music lovers about songs related to themes like "Songs From the First Album You Ever Bought" (episode 1), "Songs That Are Incredibly Clever (episode 15), and "Songs That Aren't for the Faint of Heart" (episode 40).

Our panelists have included old friends and new acquaintances. We've spoken to music teachers, instrumentalists, composers, producers, songwriters, students, and several of our Soundfly course instructors — each of whom brought an interesting and passionate perspective to the table.

That said, this ain't no clip show folks. You may have been expecting a highlight reel, but we decided to take things in a different direction, centering the episode around what may very well be our vaguest theme to date: "50." That's it. Just the number 50.

For this one, our panel of regulars had the freedom to select any song in the world, provided they could find a way to relate it to the number 50.
