...it'd probably sound something like this.
I've always loved Newman's music, and not just his cinematic stuff. There's always something so "lived-in" about his voice; something so clever (yet sincere) about his lyrics. And now that I've listened to this podcast, I have another reason: When Bob Boilen complimented his "rounding-the-bases" melody from The Natural, the example of melodic greatness Randy reached for in an effort to deflect the compliment was Beethoven's sublime 7th Symphony.
Now that's a man with excellent taste.
