Song of the Day: You've Got A Friend In Me
This song was chosen as an ode to Joe Biden being selected VP candidate for Barack Obama. Biden was the guy I was rooting for. I think he'll be great on the stump and on the campaign trail. And I think he'd be an excellent Vice President. I think he's got all the qualifications McCain thinks of himself having.
That being said, I'm going to now pay more attention to Randy Newman, singer of the featured song and so many more.
Who doesn't love Randy Newman? I remember him from way back when, hitting "big" with Short People. Hilarious. Always thought it was one of the funniest songs I'd ever heard. And to think it got significant national airplay! "Little cars that go beep beep beep." Genius!
And as much as I really don't, the song I Love L.A. is a great little ditty. Honestly, it's got it all over Dirty Water.
