God bless Paul Newman

Ah, Paul. What a legend.

Plastic Jesus (from Cool Hand Luke) – Paul Newman

“The only question I ever ask any woman is ‘What time is your husband coming home?’”

Here is where I reveal my true colors – I harbor a *serious* crush on the Paul Newman of 40 years hence. Have you SEEN Hud or Cool Hand Luke? If not, you must. I think he smolders better than any actor today (quote in the subject line is from Hud – what a cad. Um, I love it).

So it just made my day (no, week) when Said The Gramophone posted the mp3 of Paul Newman singing “Plastic Jesus” from Cool Hand Luke (sittin’ on the porch).

BONUS (just because it fits):
Plastic Jesus/Fall Line” – Jack Johnson from KFOG Radio 2/13/02

Someone also compiled a nice mix of little retro gems entitled “This One’s For Paul Newman” on Art of the Mix. Some excellent tracks on the list, thematically based around all his movies.

I love the fact that I just got to post a Paul Newman song on my blog.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
