More music discussion (that's what we're all here for, right, no surprises there?) with Sarah, Sam and Martin as we look at some of the… lighter lyrical writing of Tom Waits in this track from Heartattack and Vine. With various discussions about the impact of originals vs. covers, as well as the 20-year-leap time-travelling abilities of Sarah, we follow this album on yet another stylistic twist as we work through the album Song by Song.
