John Legend All of Me

What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

Taken from the US number one single All of Me by nine-time Grammy winner John Legend, from his album Love in the Future (2012).

Randy Hickey (Ethan Suplee) from the comedy My Name is Earl (2005 – 2009). WInner of several Emmys, the premise of the show was Earl deciding to right the wrongs of his petty crime past after winning a lottery ticket (and then losing it!)
