Welcome to the “I’m In Love With That Song” Podcast. Each episode, we’ll take one of my favorite songs and dive deep into it, listening to all the nuances that make it a great song. You may be unfamiliar with some of these songs, while others you’ve probably heard a hundred times, but I bet if we listen closely, we can discover something new. Of course, there’s no definitive answer to what makes a great song—beauty is in the ear of the beholder—these are just my personal favorites, but I hope you love these songs, too.

    Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians - "Airscape"

    Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians - "Airscape"

    A Robyn Hitchcock song is so unique, it could only come from the mind of Robyn Hitchcock. From his first recordings with The Soft Boys in the '70's through to his solo work today, Robyn is a singular artist with a vision all his own. This is a track from my favorite Hitchcock album, Element Of Light.

    Roxy Music - "In Every Dream Home A Heartache"

    Roxy Music - "In Every Dream Home A Heartache"

    Wealth and excess go together; emptiness and detachment are right around the corner. This song delves into all of that, along with a particular obsession. What do you do when money no longer buys you a thrill? Bryan Ferry has some thoughts...
    NOTE: Though there's no profanity used in this episode, the discussion does involve sexual activities so be warned... you might wanna listen to this one on headphones.

    Rush - "Subdivisions"

    Rush - "Subdivisions"

    To say Rush has a devoted fan base would be an understatement. I know, because I was a card-carrying member of the "Rush Backstage Fan Club" back in the '80's. Perhaps no Rush song connected so directly with their fans as "Subdivisions". On this episode, we celebrate Neil Peart with a deeper look at this fan favorite.

    Starz - "X-Ray Spex"

    On this episode, we revisit the great '70's hard rock/power pop album Attention Shoppers! by Starz. "X-Ray Spex" is a blast of punky pop with some interesting use of studio effects. Turn it up!

MUSIC LOVERS GET THIS NOW

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Brad loves music and his passion is obvious in every episode. This isn’t some dry, technical examination of a piece of music, but a joyous celebration of a song he loves. Even if it’s something you’ve never heard before, by the end you either can appreciate the music, or you’re heading over to your favorite music seller to grab a copy of your very own. Check out the “Gimme Shelter” and BB King episodes for an idea of what I’m talking about.

Fantastic podcast

Really love the breakdown of each song especially for a musical novice like myself. So interesting to see the songs are built. Great podcast, definitely recommend it!

Every episode is a gem for the music fan

I love this podcast. The host does his research and I really enjoy how he breaks up the tracks into pieces. Words are carefully chosen and he really dives deep into an individual song. The Gimme Shelter episode is particularly great.
