"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).

"Plastic Jesus" - Paul Newman

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 went to saidthegrammaphone and couldn't find the download for "Plastic Jesus" :(

HELP? Anyone have the full version of P. Newman singing this on a MP3?
