Bruce Pollock asks artists about the one song they wrote or sang that most influenced their career.
Marc Campbell - "88 Lines About 44 Women"The Nails lead singer Marc Campbell talks about those 44 women he sings about over a stock Casio keyboard track. He's married to one of them now - you might be surprised which. Dean Friedman - "Ariel"Dean's saga began with "Ariel," a song about falling in love with a Jewish girl from New Jersey. Mike Watt - "History Lesson, Pt. 2"Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement." Neal Smith - "I'm Eighteen"With the band in danger of being dropped from their label, Alice Cooper drummer Neal Smith co-wrote the song that started their trek from horror show curiosity to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Billy Steinberg - "Like A Virgin"The first of Billy's five #1 hits was the song that propelled Madonna to stardom. You'd think that would get you a backstage pass, wouldn't you? Narada Michael Walden - "Freeway of Love"As a songwriter and producer, Narada had hits with Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Starship. But what song does he feel had the greatest impact on his career?
