Back one more time with Miranda and Andy, we dive right into the gender politics of criticising women for breaking their shoes and dressing up like cars, as well as Waits borrowing the childrens television music of Bryan Daly (circa 1981, not 1986, apologies for that). With Whitney Huston's smooth stylings as counter-point, Song by Song continues its journey along Heartattack and Vine.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Saving All My Love For You, Heartattack And Vine, Tom Waits (1980)
Saving All My Love For You, Whitney Huston, Whitney Huston (1985)
Postman Pat Theme Tune, BBC, Bryan Daly (1981)
