The Sadder But Wiser Girl

Who knew that Seth MacFarlane, creator of The Family Guy, had his own album? Not me. But I was slightly thrilled when Terry Gross played a song from it, and it was "The Sadder But Wiser Girl" from The Music Man. OMG. He sings it so good I almost cried.

What a freakin' cute song!!! BTW, The Music Man is like my favorite thing that ever happened. I participated in a local production of it when I was 8-ish(?), and I wore out my little cassette tape with all the songs on it. Then, the love affair continued when Matthew Broderick starred in a made-for-TV movie adaptation of it in 2003. Kristin Chenoweth was in it, it was awesome, I own the DVD.
