Episode 10: Laughing at Life, track by track! "Where Would You Be Without Me?"
IN THIS EPISODE:
We're shining the spotlight on Melissa Stylianou's feature song from our new album, the Anthony Newley/Leslie Bricusse-penned "Where Would You Be Without Me," from The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd. Melissa gets in touch with her dark side and gets some "me" time in Oded Lev-Ari's arrangement of this theatrical, full-of-attitude song.
THE QUESTIONS ON EVERYONE'S MIND:
1. Melissa's song poses an important question: Where would we be without you, Melissa? LOST, that's where, and probably having way less fun than we do when you're around.
2. As we are wont to do, this episode found us embarking on a bit of a tangent. While discussing some of Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse's other compositions, the topic of James Bond films came up (they wrote "Goldfinger," among other iconic songs). So, we wondered, is it really possible to die from being covered in head-to-toe gold paint? Turns out, the answer is no. This Smithsonian Magazine article explains why we're going to be fine when we pose in body paint for our next record.
