Depending On You

Something that my season seven guest Ivan Anderson said that stuck with me, was that “Listen to Her Heart” is a ‘little’ song. And by that, he wasn’t being dismissive. He was saying that it wasn’t covering a weighty topic and it was compact and accessible. I’d say exactly the same thing about this one. It’s neat and compact. It has a superb hook in the pre-chorus and the whole thing is imminently hummable. It’s a pretty perfect little pop song.

Today’s episode covers the third track from side two of Full Moon Fever, Depending On You.
