A second week with Jenny Conley-Drizos sees her talking with Sam and Martin about restraint, morbidity and violence in this crooner ballad. With some of Sam’s “Overworked Lyric Unpicking” (patent pending) and Martin’s Smooth Marble Egg theory of music, we have one of the most stereotypical episodes of Song by Song yet... sorry folks, we’re 100% on-brand this week.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
I'll Shoot The Moon, The Black Rider, Tom Waits (1993)
I'll Be Seeing You, Dreamy, Sarah Vaughan (1960)
I'll Shoot The Moon at 1h26m30s from The Black Rider: The Casting of the 12 Magic Bullets (filmed at the Weiner Festwochen, via YouTube), Wilson/Burroughs/Waits (1990)
