We also recognize the passing of Cory Wells, long time singer of Three Dog Night.
This song has a larger history than I realized, apparently.
i had NPR on today as the wife, the boy, and i were driving back from a day out, and after a particular errand, i caught the end of an interview with brian wilson and mike love. mr. wilson, when asked what the greatest album of all time was, responded with, "'sail away' by randy newman, though most others probably won't agree with me." i'd banged around the idea of picking up a randy newman album now and then, and that seemed as good an album as any. about midway through the second song, it occurred to me that i needed to put up a video. this track loosely connects that and other recent events.
i found 3 live clips from 3 different decades, and he started the song off with the same "fire hazard" line each time.
