Thanks so much for making this tribute. It was a great video to go with a great musician. Actually, I Think It's Going To Rain Today Made Me Cry. I watched the version on youtube, where he is accompanied by Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra-just beautiful.

I think it's a shame he didn't win anything for "The Princess & the Frog," (especially b/c "Friends on the Other Side" is one of the best villain songs ever in my book) and "Cats Don't Dance" has my favorite songs of his, "Our Time Has Come" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."

Hey Mr.Coat! Maybe for the site's anniversary August, you and the other TFIC reviewers should do review together on Edgar Wright's short lived comedy series "Asylum".

It's very cool, that John Lasseter know Randy Newman before John was a well known film director.

I enjoyed this, as I'm a huge Newman fan, but he was not born in New Orleans. He spent a lot of time as a child there (it was his mother's hometown and he still has many relatives there), but he "was born right here [Los Angeles], November '43." [From "Dixie Flyer"] You can find his timeline here:

mr coat out of all the 3 main songs from the toy story films "You've got a friend in me", "When she loved me", and "We belong together" which one is your favorite? Mr. Coat: Probably "You've Got a Friend in Me", though I like all three a lot.

I'm very glad Newman won his fist Oscar for "If I didn't have you" It does make me wonder will we get to hear that song again in the Monsters, University prequel?

To Neil: Well, almost everyone thinks that. My friends make fun for liking Randy Newman. They said the same time like Doug Walker said. I don't care what they say. I love Randy Newman 's work.

I learned quite a bit about Randy Newman today. I never knew he was born in New Orleans. That explains his accent. I love his work in the movies, especially the animated ones: Pixar films, James and the Giant Peach, Cats Don't Dance, and The Princess and the Frog.

I knew you were gonna do this one of these days. A tribute to Newman was unavoidable, and it was an overall good tribute, though I would have liked to see a sample of his music from James and the Giant Peach since you showed a song from each of the other films he worked on. (Except for the TS3 one) I fail to see where Doug Walker is coming from when he says Randy keeps rewriting "You Got a Friend in Me". Although there is one song from TPATF I don't particularly care for: Down in New Orleans. Not only do I find the melody kind of bland, but the lyrics are essentially Newman singing about what he sees. I like all of the others ones a lot, though. Speaking of which, if you're interested in seeing a well-thought-out opposing view of Newman, I recommend checking out Raineatrenton's Princess and the Frog text commentary. I recommend all of his commentaries as even when I don't agree, he is a very smart and funny person. Though his editing could use some work. (You need to pause in order to read the long comments entirely)

Wow. I had no idea Randy Newman wrote so many good songs, aside from his work at Disney/Pixar, "Princess and the Frog", and "Three Amigos".

Hey coat just wondering but what is in your favourite toy story film. Mr. Coat: I'm equally a fan of all three of them, though I give the first one a slight edge.
