Randy Newman talks about the song "A Piece of the Pie" from his album Harps and Angels.
When I first heard this song, it stopped me dead in my tracks. Great poetry, fantastic music, a classic song. What a great talent Randy Newman is. Songs like A Piece Of The Pie, soar above the dross of hip-hop and the moronic mush that passes for pop songs now a days.
Randy Newman, a modern day Shakespeare. Thank God we have him, more power to your elbow Randy boy. John (IRELAND)
A fantastic song - in the genius tradition of Shakspeare - Ibsen - Brecht - Weill - Dylan. Thank you very much, Randy. Hugo (Norway)
Definitely heard worse. Cheers.
