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.
