We kick off our second year of podcasting with a visit to the pod booth from our returning champion Rob Draper. Rob, who appeared on the very first My Favorite Album a year ago talking Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, stops by to chat with host Jeremy Dylan about George Michael’s 1987 raunchy smash album Faith.
Along the way, they break down classic tracks Faith, Father Figure, I Want Your Sex and Kissing A Fool, debate sexually explicit lyrics in pop music, learning to tolerate 80s production techniques and outline the story for a Broadway adaptation of the album.
The episode closes with Rob performing a rockin’ rockabilly rendition of the classic title track.
