From the recording MY MUSEUM
14. Extraordinary Alien – another Ben Wittman original that I just love. I got to do my best Randy Newman impersonation on this one, and relished every second of it. Ben wrote the song thinking of his father. In Ben’s words, “I always thought the immigration term ‘Extraordinary Alien’ was so wild and dramatic, and apropos of my father’s life as a Holocaust survivor.” Written and recorded at Ben’s Brooklyn apartment in the Spring of 2006.
