Randy Newman – "I Love L.A."

August 24, 2012

Non-compelling Factoid: I bought Randy Newman‘s 1983 album, Trouble in Paradise a long, long time ago. I loved it, lost it*, and after not having it for a couple of decades I decided to buy it again.

Incidentally, for today’s song from the album it was a toss-up between “I Love L.A.” and “The Blues”.

“The Blues” was the reason I bought Trouble in Paradise in the first place, so I might as well play you that too:
