Ella Jean

  • On this song, Schmit croons sweet nothings to his wife of 25 years. He told Reuters she is unmoved by his standing in the music industry. Said Schmit: "She's not particularly impressed, in general. The first night I met her, I asked her if she wanted to hear some music. She said, 'Sure.' She thought I was going to play her some tapes or something. Well, I picked up the guitar and started singing. She was so unimpressed, which completely attracted me."
