Album Review

Randy Newman wrote and sang three songs in his characteristic style for the soundtrack of the first computer-animated children's movie, Toy Story, along with a sprightly, stirring score that reflected the film's fun, adventurous spirit. "You've Got A Friend In Me," performed both as a solo by Newman at the start and as a duet with Lyle Lovett at the end (reflecting the theme of emerging friendship between toys Woody and Buzz Lightyear), earned an Oscar nomination; "Strange Things" was a comically ominous song used to express Woody's feelings about being supplanted by Buzz; and "I Will Go Sailing No More" was a wistful lament for Buzz when he made the agonizing discovery that he was a toy, not a space hero. Newman's winning score helped set the mood for the charming film that was a box office champion for Christmas 1995.

Customer Reviews

Heart Warming Magic!

Randy Newman is pure genius in his ability to real you into his classic familiar sounds. No one can sing with such passion and heartache as he does.

You've Got A Friend In Me

this is the best song ever! It makes you feel happy when your feeling down! I love this song!

The scores really capture the fleeting emotions that these toys feel - their triumph, their relief, their despair - and the songs are instantly recognizable. It's a fantastic soundtrack to go with one of the best movies.

Newman developed an idiosyncratic style that alternated between sweeping, cinematic pop and rolling R&B, which were tied together by his nasty sense of humor. Where his peers concentrated on confessional songwriting, Newman drew characters, creating a world filled with misfits, outcasts, charlatans, and con men....
