Clifford, the Pop Song Professor, takes a hard look at Florida Georgia Line's "H.O.L.Y." The song's a love song, but it uses religious imagery to send the message that there's something special about a woman who can rid the narrator of all of his demons.

However, the song's likely offensive to religious audiences, and Clifford tackles that topic in this fourth episode of The Pop Song Professor Podcast.
