Guest Ric Dube and I dig deep and analyze two '70s rock classics. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Redd Kross, Chelsea Light Moving and Cat Power.

Show notes:

- Recorded in Shrewsbury, Mass.

- Check out Ric's podcast More Lost Time

- Digging into Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Lights"

- Irony-free, over-the-top theatrics

- Song is in three parts

- Jay: Remember as a kid thinking it was risque

- Paradise turns out to be hell

- Jim Steinman was known for ridiculously long song titles

- Song goes from rockabilly to disco in the middle, with Phil Rizzuto mixed in

- The debate over third base

- Ellen Foley's odd career

- Third section tries to emulate punk

- The strange allure of Robby Benson

- Meat Loaf's acting career

- Part 2: "Brother Louie" by Stories

- A classic '70s one-hit wonder

- Stories actually had well-known musicians in band

- Louie was whiter than white

- Super catchy chorus

- Ric: This was a "Neapolitan relationship"

- The lesson was about equal opportunity sexing

- Why is the name Louie popular in songs?

- Did Jeff Lynne swipe the ELO string sound from this song?

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Redd Kross - Researching the Blues

Chelsea Light Moving - Burroughs

Cat Power - Ruin
