19: THE MUSIC EPISODE! Golden oldies, songs from the 80s & break up songs

Break up songs, Adam and the Ants, Kate Bush… Hold up, people – it’s the MUSIC EPISODE! Geordie & Michelle go on a rambling meander of memories, stories, thoughts and nonsense as they talk all things music and the time Geordie met a faded popstar. But first they start with a few apologies, namely Geordie’s atrocious spelling on the Potluck Party episode video trailer where she’s dancing and swigging brown lemonade… Or is she??? ? Ben Mendels gets a shout out, namely because we’ve been sidelining him for Line of Duty chat, and a small discussion follows about whether Aussies still call a toilet ‘the toot’. No idea if that’s how you spell it, but the double o in ‘toot’ is pronounced like ‘look’ rather than the toot of a trumpet. Get it??

Then it’s onto the meat in the sandwich – MUSIC! Having both been in bands for most of their lives, Geordie and Michelle chat about music, songwriting, the creative process, their bands and how music has slipped away from them both in the past few years. Childhood musical loves from the 80s and 90s are revealed with Michelle’s obsession with Boy George making a questionable appearance. Geordie admits The Cure were responsible for her going through a gothy black-hair phase at school.

Geordie then recounts an excellent story about the time she met Adam Ant – and the moment she binned off an invitation to sing for Dave Stewart. Michelle rambles on about heartbreak songs and tries to explain to Geordie what a torch song is ?. Michelle rounds off the break up songs chat with a pathetic story of love and separation with Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U as the soundtrack  ??

The pair mention loads of golden oldies, tunes that have inspired them, random thoughts and reminiscing, while neither of them can remember Men At Work singer Colin Hay’s surname or the name of the song they supposedly really like (it’s called Overkill btw ?). Lots of links and show notes below so check it out plus a dubious Spotify playlist created for the ep!!! It’s a walk down memory lane that doesn’t scratch the surface of all the music they love so, there could be a part 2, just so you know… J
