Disses Rival City Makes Us Want to Visit

With tongue affixed firmly to inner cheek, Randy Newman delivers his ode to Los Angeles. "Look at those trees," Newman sings, "Look at that bum over there, man / He's down on his knees." Despite Newman's status as sarcastic singer/songwriter numero uno, Los Angeles embraced his cock-eyed valentine. Just go to a Lakers game for proof; "I Love L.A." will play without fail.
