ABC - How to Be a...Zillionaire! (1985) Part
It's been a couple of weeks since Brian and Sarah started their discussion of ABC's third album, "How to Be a...Zillionaire!" And unfortunately, they were only able to cover the first two tracks on side one before they had to cut the episode short. So, this week they have a lot of catching up to do!
Part 3 - Track by Track, continued
Our hosts jump right back into things and find themselves with two more singles and three videos to discuss on Side One. One video completely delights both Brian and Sarah, and the other two are a little less interesting to them both. Side Two only contains one video, but according to Brian's research, it's a rather notable one in music video history. Speaking of notable, Brian makes a notable revelation while discussing a song on Side Two, which refutes some of the things he said in the Personal History section of the previous episode. In addition to music, of course, our hosts talk quite a bit about fashion-- in relation to song lyrics and in relation to a particular live performance by the band, where one band member is wearing an unusual fashion accessory. And while regular listeners may be used to this podcast sometimes morphing into a mini James Bond movie podcast, this time it almost gets turned into-- of all things-- a Kirk Douglas podcast! What?!

Part 4 - Final Review and Rating
Sarah goes first with her review and rating. She owned this album before Brian did, so she has a longer history with it. So, does that result in her giving it a higher rating than Brian does? Brian himself seems a bit surprised with the rating he decides to give the album, but he gives a good explanation of why, and he compares this album to others he has rated. And after Brian's comparison, Sarah feels even more comfortable with her own rating.
