The great Sal Vulcano of The Tenderloins and (Impractical) Jokers on TruTV joins The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers to discuss the Eurythmics' 1983 record 'Touch'. The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts. For show notes, guest playlists, documentaries and audiobooks about the music, go to The500Podcast.com. New Song / Artist influenced by Eurythmics: "World's Crazy" by Róisín Murphy (YouTube) & (Spotify) Join. The. Movement.

To kick things off, we take a trip down memory lane - actually we take Richmond Road past Victory Boulevard - and Sal shares stories along the way about his groovy musical upbringing, delivering pizza to Wu-Tang Clan, and his meticulous dedication to preparing fresh playlists each night to set the mood while bartending.

Turning our attention to Touch, Sal and Josh both agree Annie Lennox is the female David Bowie, pushing the edges of the pop genre, and doubling down on experimentation in Eurythmics' third album following up the worldwide hit song Sweet Dreams. This music represents the early 80's. It paves the way for video games and the next generation of androgynous superstars.

Then, they leave a voicemail for Kenny Loggins.  The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.  For show notes, guest playlists, documentaries and audiobooks about the music, go to The500Podcast.com.   New Song / Artist influenced by Eurythmics:
