He directly and indirectly talked about rump, described him as an "old time racist" as in the type of racist who says and thinks that POC are actually inferior to whites.

He sang most of his hits, but for some reason did not sing

www.youtube.com Video from : www.youtube.com




my favorite, probably prefers to have his band for this one and he was solo.


Oh, at one point he stopped and looked at us and said in reference to rump "we are in danger"

I hate L.A..

The song, like most of Newman's, was from a point of view different from his. He was channeling all the people from somewhere else who love anything that isn't snow.

"Look at that bum over there, he's down on his knees" should have been a clue. It wasn't. L.A. is of course known for cluelessness. They made it a semi-official anthem.

My favorite Randy Newman song, but performed by Tracy Nelson:

No doubt that was his meaning, but I love the feel of the song and I actually do Love LA, for the same reason you probably love whatever it is you cant have.
