Song of the Week: "New York State of Mind"

I love this song, and you know I love Billy Joel, but this is my favorite version of this song. Just Jim Henson in character as Rowlf the Dog, giving a genuine and pretty rendition of this classic on the album Ol' Brown Ears Is Back. Interestingly, this album was released in 1993 (three years after Jim died), but mostly recorded in 1983. No idea why it wasn't released earlier, but when it did come out, it was a nice, touching tribute to Jim Henson.
