Midge Ure presents an investigation of Middle 8s in pop music. They’re not always in the middle, they’re not always 8 bars, but they do always create drama and excitement in a host of well-known songs. Think of Born To Run, A Day In The Life, It’s A Sin, Oliver’s Army, Every Breathe You Take. That bit that isn’t the verse or the chorus, it’s the Middle 8, or the Bridge. Scheduled for broadcast on Saturday 27 April 2013 at 10:30am.
Singled out as one of the Observer’s “Picks of the Day”.
