Comedian Bassem Youssef, known for his sharp wit and political commentary, discovered Billy Joel’s “Pressure” in an unlikely place — midway through an episode of Amazon’s superhero satire The Boys. From the first notes, he knew he had to seek out the song for himself. On this episode of The Spark Parade, Youssef explains how he fell in love with the track once he did. Listen above, or wherever you get your podcasts.

The more Youssef dove into “Pressure,” the more he connected with its energetic synth-rock vibe, soaring melodies, and themes of dealing with stress. “[I had] the pressure of touring and the pressure of the Piers Morgan show and the exposure again, and I found out that all my life I’ve been living that kind of pressure,” the comedian says. “So, I kind of decided to make it the theme song, my walk-on music on stage — and maybe it’s the theme song of my life.”
