Randy Newman

Randy Newman

Randy Newman's pop songs of the 1970s earned him a reputation as a songwriter's songwriter, but he's famous to most audiences for his songs and scores for popular movies such as Toy Story (1995), Bug's Life (1998) and Monsters, Inc. (2001). Randy Newman began writing songs at an early age, and in 1968 released his first album, Randy Newman Creates Something New Under the Sun. During the 1970s he released several albums that received critical praise and won over loyal fans, even if they didn't make Newman into rock star celebrity. He had a top 40 hit with "Sail Away" (1972), but it was his 1977 song "Short People," a controversial parody about bigotry, that became his biggest hit. Since the 1980s he has concentrated on writing film scores, including Ragtime (1981), The Natural (1984, starring Robert Redford), James and the Giant Peach (1996) and the sequels Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010).

Randy Newman has been Oscar-nominated as a composer 20 times, beginning with the 1981 movie Ragtime; his first Oscar win was for 2001's Monsters, Inc. and his second win was for 2010's Toy Story 3 (best song, "We Belong Together")... Randy Newman's uncles -- Alfred, Lionel and Emil Newman -- were also film composers and conductors; Alfred Newman was the musical director for 20th Century Fox studios for many years... In 1970 singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson released an entire album of Newman songs, Nilsson Sings Newman... Three Dog Night's cover of Newman's "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" was a number one hit for the group in 1970.

Randy Newman : Anthology

Review: Newman is noted for his practice of writing lyrics from the perspective of a character far removed from Newman's own biography, often using the literary device of an unreliable narrator. For example, the 1972 song "Sail Away" is written as a slave trader's sales pitch to attract slaves, while the narrator of "Political Science" is a U.S. nationalist who complains of worldwide ingratitude toward America and proposes a brutally ironic final solution. One of his biggest hits, "Short People" was written from the perspective of "a lunatic" who hates short people. Here are thirty great songs from this brilliant artist, including hits from such movies as Toy Story and Parenthood.
