The Randy Newman Songbook Vol. 2

While pondering whether to record a second volume of the Randy Newman Songbook, the two-time Academy Award-winning songwriter—honored most recently for “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3—claims he took a practical, Hollywood movie-studio view of the situation: “The first one did so well that nowadays you might as well just ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

When Disney and Pixar were producing their computer-animation breakthrough Toy Story, a project whose R&D costs alone demanded a blockbuster payoff, the conventional wisdom would have been to turn the music-scoring chores over to the stable of writers who'd made the likes of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast such sound successes. Instead they wisely handed the task to one Randy Newman, a musician who'd built his reputation writing some of the most skewed and astringent pop songs in history. The result is a technological marvel with a very human heart. "You've Got a Friend in Me" and "Strange Things" offer delight to listeners of any age, while "I Will Go Sailing No More" sounds like a melancholy orphan from Little Criminals--even if it's only lamenting a goofy, marooned toy space ranger. Newman's instrumental score is by turns gleeful and heart-tugging--one of the richest musical scores of the genre. --Jerry McCulley

Format: Audio CD
TOY STORY was the first feature-length motion picture that Pixar released in theatres. The movie was literally ground-breaking in what it did for animation and also included one of the best movie plots to be seen on screen that whole year (1995). In addition, there was the music. Randy Newman has been plugging out show tunes for years on end. However, with the release of the TOY STORY, Newman entered a new era. Some will disagree and others will say that TOY STORY is when Newman sold out, but with the TOY STORY soundtrack, Randy Newman's music went mainstream in a major way and became popular with a whole new audience (largely composed of children and young adults).

TOY STORY is a buddy flick and the songs and music on the album reflect that. From the wonderful "You've Got a Friend in Me" to the charming instrumental "Woody and Buzz", the music and songs of TOY STORY reflect an awareness and mentality that is often missing in movie music.

I enjoy listening to the instrumental pieces on the album, but am especially fond of the regular songs. Those songs are:

"You've Got a Friend in Me"--the song that captures the whole

buddy-theme of the movie. As a sidenote, this was one of the

most requested songs on the children's radio show I used to

produce.

"Strange Things"--a song about one's self-awakening and the

frustration felt in the goings on.

"I Will Go Sailing No More"--one of the saddest and most

haunting songs I have ever heard sung in a movie, the song is

all about the loss of a dream.

The TOY STORY album isn't for everyone. However, fans of the film and Randy Newman fans will probably enjoy it, not to mention Disney maniacs.

In November of 1995 audiences were treated to the first computer animated motion picture event: Toy Story. Many were to soon pick up a Copy of the Soundtrack to own that following Christmas. When I first heard the Score for the film 'Toy Story' it stuck with me for a bunch of years. Now I am finally able to write a review for the Score. Here is my Track-by-Track Review: (I will be only reviewing the Instrumental Pieces!)

04. Andy's Birthday: (3/5): As the opening to the Score of the Film I don't think I really expected much. For the opening it certainly doesn't start with much of a bang! Though I must say, it does get right to the idea of this piece. It's Andy's Birthday and Woody and rest of the toys are dreadfully worried!

05. Soldiers Mission: (3/5): Okay's heres the whole idea, Woody has sent the little green army men to go and see what presents Andy is getting for his birthday. This Instrumental doesn't say very much in terms of storyline presentation, but it definaly picks the Score up a little more. It is more high noted and more exciting then the previous Instrumental!

06. Presents: (5/5): WOAH! Now this one is what makes the score pick itself up. I'm not too sure on the name of the track being 'Presents' but I know that it totally captures that strong sense of panic when Woody and the rest of the Toys descover Andy is coming upstairs!

07. Buzz: (4/5): Well, the name says it all! Andy and his friends have just left and Woody has just got a new look at Andy's new toy! Buzz Lightyear! This Instrumental carries the story quite nicely. The second part of the Instrumental, the music from the 'Flying' Scene, reminds me of a Roller Coaster. By the end of this part in the Film Woody is Jealous of the new toy!

08. Sid: (5/5): Finally!

Randy Newman, in addition to being an excellent singer and songwriter, delivers a great orchestral score for Toy Story. "You've Got a Friend in Me" is a great song, along with "Strange Things" and "I Will Go Sailing No More." The instrumental tracks contain a lot of variations on themes from these 3 songs played, in addition to a lot of other themes and ideas. The average person might think that scoring for an animated film would mean that the music would have to fit the scene exactly on every single move, otherwise known as mickey-mousing, done in the old Warner Bros. cartoons. However, Newman scores it as if it were a drama and just listening to the music would tell you that. There are some comedic and fun parts in the music, which hint that it is an animated film, but not like the cartoons of old. The score is overall enjoyable, light-hearted, and fun. Other parts of the score contain jazz related ideas and there is action music present in several of the cues, which Newman does an excellent job writing. A great soundtrack to own and listen to for people of all ages.

I'm not a huge soundtrack fan but this is a good soundtrack. It has all of the vocal songs from the movie along with most of the instrumental stuff. If you liked the music in the mvie this would be a good buy.

Any fan of the movie will enjoy this album. The Album is pretty much broken up between the songs and instrumental. Randy Newman is a great composer and has made some of the best movie music out there this album has a great balance of songs that really tell a story just be listening to the tracks. This would make a great gift too anyone who loves Toy Story or enjoys the works of Randy Newman.
