Soul of Wit, a great friend of the site, sent over this link in comments to the post of this morning. It’s Newman, along with Linda Ronstadt and Ry Cooder doing the song Rider in the Rain. It’s just too good to not feature.
The introductory panel of Randy Newman’s song about the greatest river flood in American history says that the water breached 145 levees, flooded 17 million acres of farmland and killed 250 people. The photos are amazing. Here Aaron Neville and India Arie sing the song during what appears to be a benefit for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight on, well, MTV. Here is a nice story on the band Fun., which is up for a couple of awards and links to We Are Young and Some Nights, which are the band’s big songs. Here is MTV’s site for the awards.
