Listening Booth – Randy Newman, “Marie”
That’s right, Randy Newman. The guy from that Family Guy episode singing about apples. Trust me on this one people – put that out of your mind for a few minutes, and forget about how weird Newman looks when he sings. Just clear your head and enjoy one of the most beautiful ballads ever written — “Marie”. This is a live performance from 1979, although the song first appeared on Newman’s classic 1974 album, Good Old Boys.
