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.

    Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Run Through The Jungle"

    Creedence Clearwater Revival - "Run Through The Jungle"

    Creedence Clearwater Revival were quite the phenomenon from 1967 to 1972. During that short period-- only 5 years-- they racked up ten songs in the Top 20, 5 of them making it to #2. In the middle of that run, they released "Run Through The Jungle" in April 1970. The song is often identified with the Viet Nam war, but we explore the true roots of the song and listen to the individual elements that make up this great track.

    Todd Rundgren - "Real Man"

    Todd Rundgren - "Real Man"

    Todd Rundgren never became a household name, but he has legions of fans around the world. I'm one of 'em. What has always drawn me to Todd, then and now, is not just his way with a tune and a willingness to do anything musically-- it's his search for something deeper, more meaningful, than your typical pop song. This is a prime example of melding melody and message, producing pop with purpose. What does it mean to be a "real man"? Todd answered that question in 1975.

A true classic.

    The Electric Prunes - "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)"

    The Electric Prunes - "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)"

    Music was expanding in all directions in the 1960's; one of my favorite genres is the psychedelic/garage rock from that era. Few songs capture the sound & the spirit of that style as "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by The Electric Prunes. Take a trip with me back to those halcyon days with one of the flagship songs from the psychedelic period.

    Greg Renoff, author of “Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal” and “Ted Templeman: A Platinum Producer’s Life in Music”, joins us to talk about a pivotal album in his youth, "Burn" by Deep Purple.

Fantastic

I just found this podcast and have been binging all day. I love how he can take a song I’ve heard a million times and make it new again. I hope he does Crazy on You by Heart, which in my opinion, is the most perfect song ever made!

Good Stuff!

A lot of this music is way out of my space, but the episodes about songs I know, or know of, are outstanding! The Yes episode was over-the-top!! Keep up the great work!

Great show!

I met you at Rock n Pod expo, checked out you show and love it! First episode I listened to was the KISS “King of the night time world”. Love how you break down the songs and the side by side comparisons. Keep it up!
