Yes, yes, he's a hair-twaddling blowhard. And he snagged Meg Ryan, who remained kinda cute despite her plastic surgery mistakes. Even so, this is, I think, just a fantastically recorded and produced song. So what were the techniques/secrets here? I particularly love its great drum tones, and where the drums sit in the mix. Ditto the accordion, guitar, violin, and vocals. The separation, resonance, and the spaces--is this largely EQing magic, or what? Even on the choruses, the voices retain a great distinctness. Such a great architecture here! Thanks for your thoughts on this.
