1. Randy Newman is one of the best satirical writers of all time yet all most of us know him for is the "Toy Story" soundtrack
    Those songs are fantastic but they are just scratching the surface of Randy Newman's brilliance
  2. Jon Ronson did a really wonderful interview with him because he loves him the way the rest of us should
  3. If you are at all interested in comedy writing you need to wake up to Randy Newman
    We studied him at Second City because he's a satirical legend but guess what we don't study him ENOUGH
  4. His work is smart, thoughtful, layered, beautiful, hilarious, gut wrenching, moving, mind blowing
  5. "Short People"
    A tight ass parody of how we treat minorities in America. So good people were outraged because they thought he really hated short people. It's hard out here for a genius. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1NvgLkuEtkA
  6. "I Love LA"
    Hahaha LA sucks! People didn't get it either. God he deserves so much more https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MtDhtadoeUk
  7. "Great Nations of Europe"
    Listened to this in my AP History because unlike the rest of America, my teacher got it. Who else was making songs about colonialism??! Randy guys https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ua0pR06pevU
  8. "Sail Away"
    Another astute racial commentary. Stand alone it's such a beautifully composed song, and then the lyrics are so smart and really make you think. Randy does all the work of every incredible songwriter and then does like double that to make it satirical and smart, he's a GENIUS. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=chaP4MCXp4w
  9. We ignored him for so long after "Short People" hit in 1977. Thank God Pixar appreciated him and gave him a new life
    But we still don't recognize his incredible satire work
  10. Also he wrote many of the songs on the "Cats Don't Dance" soundtrack
    Justice for "Cats Don't Dance" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L1eBuuJqc44
  11. You should all be Randy's biggest fans bye
    He is an EGO winner. We need to fund a musical by him to get that EGOT. Guys wake up
