#1602: Bad Analogies

Jan 09, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Steve expected to encounter snow during his winter cross-country drive, but he wasn’t prepared for flurries inside his Pathfinder. Elsewhere, Nina’s mechanic ripped off her Altima’s heat shield, and Nina’s worried about burning up on re-entry. Also, Jean’s brakes started screeching after she got new pads, apparently with the “banshee” option; John’s daughters’ know-it-all boyfriends have convinced them they need to let their cars warm up for a loooong time on cold mornings; and Ray discovers new automotive healing powers. All this and lots more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.

Who's the singer and What's the song

So amusing, so really funny and sometimes even informative - I love the shows, question please: What is the song title and who is the singer in episode 1602 "Bad Analogies", approx. 35:27 into the show?
Favorite Moment: 
That song!
