Title: Randy Newman
Post by Mike Walters on Today at 16:20
Since Randy Newman came in no 11= in the recent favourite musicians poll, I thought a few others might be as interested as I was to discover that, after all these lucrative years in soundtrack limbo, Mr Newman has made at least a brief return to the kind of songwriting that we've all been missing.  The song is called 'A Few Words in Defence [or, more accurately, 'defense'] of our Country' and can perhaps be described as a Bush-inspired update of 'Political Science'.  Or something.  There's an excellent YouTube live performance available at Newman's website (www.randynewman.com) and it can also be downloaded from iTunes, apparently.

Thanks for the pointer, Mike: good to see the old Newman spark still lighting fires.
