Almost forty years after the release of Phantom of the Paradise, the music of Paul Williams is experiencing a bit of a revival. His most famous song, “The Rainbow Connection”, appeared in the latest Muppet Movie, and up-and-coming artists like the Alkaline Trio and Rachel Yamagata covered his tunes on The Green Album, a tribute to the Muppets. Fans of the visionary French robotic duo Daft Punk have heard his disembodied voice on their latest album, Random Access Memories. Even one-man corn syrup factory Jason Mraz paid tribute to the songsmith in an event hosted by ASCAP. Still Alive, a highly personal documentary about Williams’ showbiz career and his work as a substance abuse counselor, opened to great acclaim in NYC and LA earlier this year.
