Happy Birthday Randy Newman: Dixie Flyer

29 Nov

Sunday was the 67th birthday of Randy Newman. Any list of greatest American song writers includes the usual — Gershwin, Arlen, Ellington, Berlin, Porter, etc. Here’s hoping, given time and perspective, future lists will include Mr. Newman’s name on the list where it belongs — right at the top. Of course, a healthy dose of cynicism and sarcasm helps to appreciate him.

And good”
