Post Randy Newman Post

Me and Haylee went to go see Randy Newman tonight and it was fucking fantastic. There was not a single song that I hoped would be in the set that wasn't there, from classics like Sail Away to the latest, like Harps And Angels. I came away solidified in my thinking that Randy Newman is, and will probably always be, one of the best pop songwriters that ever lived.

And yet despite all of this, there is still a lot about Randy that can easily be parodied. I really have never much liked Mad TV but this sketch is awesome. Unfortunately, the sound is kind of low quality, but it still comes across well.



Nice job, Will Sasso. Here is a killer clip of the real thing...
