A Song a Day – Day 67

Now here’s a thing. Today’s tune is He Gives Us All His Love, by Randy Newman. If you’re having trouble remembering who Randy Newman is, he’s probably best known for that catchily-named tune Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear. I really like the tounge-in-cheek character he brings to his music.

Now, here’s the real thing. Like Philip Glass (see Day 32), these days Randy Newman spends most of his time writing film scores. In fact he’s just won an(other) Oscar for his work on Toy Story 3 (see Day 55). Not only that, but guess what the song he won the Oscar for is called? None other than We Belong Together (see Day 30) – and it’s not even a cover of the Pinky and Perky original!!!

Well, it amused me. Anyway, getting back to the today’s tune. Randy Newman with He Gives Us All His Love.

  1. I think it’s safe to say Randy has a instantly recognisable voice. I only really know his work on the Toy Story films though if I’m honest. I think he has a great voice, gravelly and filled with emotion.
