Linda Ronstadt…..Julia Louis-Dreyfus
[FADE IN on Julia-Louis Dreyfus dressed and posing like Linda Ronstadt. The words, Whats New–Nelson Riddle and His Orchestra frame the shot, exactly like Ronstadts album of the same name. The background music to the title track plays, and Julia begins to sing live.]
Linda Ronstadt: [singing]Whats new?
How is the world treating you?
I made the big bucks fast,
Since I have learned to rip off the past.
In four years, Ill be 42,
And musics just a game,
A silly riddle, Nelsons his name.
Linda Ronstadt: [singing]Whats old?
Records I make turn to gold,
And though the incomes grand,
The songs I sing, I dont understand,
Thank God for the band.
This old backup singers perplexed.
[coyly] I sing old songs for you,
Cause I cant do whats new!
Thanks to Joe Cornfield for this transcript!
