Back with Martin & Sam, Bárbara and Fran find a little more danceability this week, albeit in a more cliched image of doomed relationships and gender roles. With some consideration of cabaret numbers and cowboys, we take a look at how Waits shapes the tone of the album, and whether everyone needs a nap.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Everything Goes to Hell, Blood Money, Tom Waits (2002)
I'm Tired, Blazing Saddles Soundtrack, Madeline Kahn (1974)
