We have some difficulties parsing the meaning of the track this week, as Sarah, Martin and Sam visit some confusing (and perhaps terminal?) lyrics in 'Til The Money Runs Out. With side-by-side comparisons between this and Downtown a couple of episodes ago, as well as some pretty explicit interval track work by Mr Ronnie Barron, Song by Song continues its journey along Heartattack and Vine.
Song by Song is Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay; two musicians listening to and discussing every single Tom Waits track in chronological order.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes
'Til The Money Runs Out, Heartattack And Vine, Tom Waits (1980)
