If Kevin were to title this episode, he’d call it “Save Me” but that would be really lame, so Randy’s gonna call it “Sir Brian May needs no saving because he wrote Save Me!”
There’s more pre in the preamble this week folks because Kev needed closure after the shitstorm that last week’s episode created. For his part, Randy is very keen to keep the vendetta against his supposed friend alive and was very happy to stoke the flames of that particular fire! We talk about Israel vs Scotland, Brian’s Mum, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, and finally, bring to the fore the age old debate about dill pickles vs pickled onions. Spoiler alert: Mr. Randy is wrong, AGAIN!
Today’s episode covers Brian’s song for a friend that closes out 1980’s The Game. Yep, we’re talking “Save Me”
If you want to hear Randy’s song that Kev included toward the end of the episode, you can go do that here. For Kev’s money it fits perfectly into that category of perfect songs that could be easily played in a stripped down arrangement. It’s called “Take Me Back” and is taken from the second Absofunkinlutely album: https://youtu.be/m6r-5Mp39ec
