Say, do you like the show? Then give us a whole lotta love by leaving us a review on iTunes. All you have to do is look us up on the iTunes store, click the tab that says "Ratings and Reviews" and post yours. It would help the show immensely and we'd be even more grateful than whoever it was that kept saying Domo Arigato to Mr. Roboto. There's a lot of fun stuff coming up, and I guarantee you'll be holding your lighters over your heads.

What do Bad Company and Emerson Lake & Palmer have in common, other than probably needing an Oxford comma when mentioned in the same sentence? They are also both discussed on this, the first inadvertently tandem episode of SYSO. Returning guest Benjamin Schwartz joins Joe Dator to make sense of two different rock fantasies, and determine which one of them includes more mules and virgins.(Highlight to reveal spoiler: It's the ELP one!)

Should the UK remain with Europe? If you're talking about the band that recorded "The Final Countdown", then our vote is a reverberating yes! SYSO makes its first Transatlantic connection with UK cartoonist The Surreal McCoy to dissect this 80s classic about big travel plans and even bigger hair.

Comics legend Shannon Wheeler ("Too Much Coffee Man") goes behind the stadium with Joe Dator to examine Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl", and determine once and for all just how many brown eyes we're talking about here.

Melissa Manchester's opinion on Crying Out Loud is clear - you should Don't it. But what led her to this prohibition, and how many clowns were involved? The answers turn out to be "it's unclear" and "more than you might think". Host Joe Dator and guest Julia Wertz don't keep it inside, and learn how not to hide their feelings about this easy listening staple.
