Biography

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

For those who loved Randy Newman's score to the first Toy Story (but maybe not the singer-songwriter's gruff voice), check out Toy Story 2. Here, we get a handful of memorable vocal numbers: Sarah McLachlan sings the breathy "When She Loved Me," Riders in the Sky give their retro-swing treatment to "Woody's Roundup," and Robert Goulet croons Toy Story's anthem "You've Got a Friend in Me." The soundtrack's orchestrations are pure Newman--sometimes sweeping, sometimes whimsical, and always fitting for this fantasy story of toys coming to life. Of course, the "You've Got a Friend in Me" theme keeps popping up in the instrumentals, as do Western-themed melodies. Nothing monumental here, but a fun soundtrack nonetheless. --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music for a fantastic movie! December 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD for two songs specifically: "You've Got A Friend In Me" and Sarah McLachlan's melancholy ballad "When She Loved Me". The first song will stir memories of the first Toy Story, and if you've already seen Toy Story 2 (and shame on you for listening to these songs without seeing the movie first!), then "When She Loved Me" will no doubt bring chills to your skin and a tear to your eye. The instrumentals are also fun to listen to, as well as the cool 50s TV showtune, "Woody's Round Up". I love this movie, and Pixar should be commended for capturing the spirit of what toys *truly* are: an extension of a child's imagination; not pieces of supposed gold for old money-hungry collectors.

4.0 out of 5 stars not to toy with this story... January 3, 2000
By hattie
Format:Audio CD
Well, I was one of the people who bought the soundtrack before I saw the movie,particularly because I'm a Sarah Mclachlan fan.I expected this CD to be just like any other cartoon soundtrack album-1/2 filled with some kiddy tunes and perhaps a ballad or two, but it turned out that i simply loved it! The different styles of music, suitable for both the old and the young, and touching rendition (including the instrumental pieces)of each song is certainly a good reason to get this soundtrack.Regardless of weather one caught the movie,one would very much like this soundtrack. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney's magic at its best shape. Delicious and funny ! January 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for Disney's Toy Story 2 is simply beyond all my expectations. Pure entertainment. Happy songs and melodies. Here, there and everywhere all over the entire cd, it's very easy to find the most joyful, pleasant and funny tracks possible. They really help you to enjoy and to live the magic of the movie itself as you've never dreamed before. They take you inside the magic. I myself am a fan of Disney movies since childhood and still today I just can't miss not even one release and buy all the soundtracks and other Disney stuff. "Lion King" and "Beauty and the Beast" are my very favorite. Masterpieces. Unforgettable. This particular one has been included in my list too, with honors. For sure, it's a must-buy. Just like the movie that inspired it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! March 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
First of all, you should know that this isn't a CD with a lot of singing. If you watched the movie, you'd probably catch onto that because only three songs are sung, and they are all on the CD. The rest is Randy Newman's awesome fantasy world. Track #14 is so perfect....it honestly takes you to another place with its catchy tune which is just as cute and mysterious as "The Cleaner" himself. Track #18 begins with the exciting Woody-the-hero melody blaring in the brass with a bold cowboy sound. It sounds almost like Aaron Copland at times, but with a little toy-flare to it.
This CD seriously just makes you smile! The Sarah McLachlan song in the beginning is probably the saddest song on the CD, but it is absolutely charming and sweet. If you like any of Randy Newman's instrumental music ("Maverick" and "A Bug's Life"), you won't be disappointed by this CD. However, if you somehow thought that Woody and company sang songs throughout the movie, you probably won't like it. For the rest of you, it's incredible! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing soundtrack January 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is truly a piece of art. Randy Newman has done some great things with this album. "When She Loved Me" is a beautiful song that I can't help but listen to over and over again. The instrumental part (which makes up the majority of the album) is exciting yet very soothing and enjoyable. If you've seen the movie, and paid any attention to the music at all, the soundtrack is a must. I put it in my CD player, sit back, and relax. I'll listen to this one for years to come.

The Toy Story 2 soundtrack, like the film itself, far surpasses the original. Randy Newman, who thankfully leaves the vocalizations to others this time around, has created a score that moves beyond Disney's easy soundtrack sell of rehashing, ie. variations on the theme of the hoped for Oscar winning ballad. From the eerie percussion of "Woody's Dream" to the playful and slightly Elfman-esque strings of "The Cleaner," Newman offers music that is entertaining even without the accompanying images--a noteworthy feat for any soundtrack.
And speaking of Oscar hopeful songs, Sarah McLachlan's haunting and painful performance, with the perfect hint of a Jessie "yodel," on "When She Loved Me" is beautiful, fragile, and perfectly rendered. This is one of the things an Oscar-nominated song should do--develop the plot of the film, with lyrical and narrative force, not with adult contemporary radio airplay. And trust me, if Phil weren't so popular, Sarah would be on the radio every five minutes in the dentist's office, also. But, then, we all know it's better that she isn't!
What can I say? This is a great, great soundtrack--score and songs soar!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Toy Story II January 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I really like the CD. I am just disappointed that Randy Newman doesn't sing the song "You've Got A Friend In Me," like he does in the first movie of Toy Story. I wish there was a CD movie soundtrack for that movie like there is for the second one.
