Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
There's a song called "Where's the Orchestra" that closes Billy Joel's "Nylon Curtain" LP that's meant a lot to me. There's just something about the way the emotion, the disappointment, builds as the song progresses that knots me up a little. A few years ago, Phil Ramone was asked in an interview if there was a song he produced that he wished more people knew, and he named this song immediately.
