Now that Burt Bacharach is gone, I find myself reviewing his songbook with awe. How about an episode on him or one of his songs? (My vote: "Walk On By" which is stuck in my head today....)

I LOVE your podcast....I keep hoping you will analyze the catchiest song....Daft Punk's song Get Lucky....
Something weird happens at 29:30: your blues guitar plays over Annie Lenox' bridge and it's an awful sound. Played twice to be sure it wasn't something else. Maybe it could be tidied up?
Thanks for the article you have share http://www.sirpriz.comd
I loved this episode ! thanks for the introduction to this tune though I am a big TMBG fan! I hadn't heard it in over 20 yrs as somehow Apollo18 isn't on my fave albums so it got buried. The reminder was great! Thanks again

Yet again, you've come through with a great breakdown!!!
