Randall Stuart "Randy" Newman (born November 28, 1943) is an American singer-songwriter, arranger, composer, and pianist who is known for his distinctive voice, mordant (and often satirical) pop songs and for film scores. Newman often writes lyrics from the perspective of a character far removed from his own experiences, sometimes using the point of view of an unreliable narrator. For example, the 1972 song "Sail Away" is written as a slave trader's sales pitch to attract slaves, while the narrator of "Political Science" is a U.S. nationalist who complains of worldwide ingratitude toward America and proposes a brutally ironic final solution. One of his biggest hits, "Short People" was written from the perspective of "a lunatic" who hates short people. Since the 1980s, Newman has worked mostly as a film composer. His film scores include ''Ragtime'', ''Awakenings'', ''The Natural'', ''Leatherheads'', ''James and the Giant Peach'', ''Meet the Parents'', ''Cold Turkey'', ''Seabiscuit'' and ''The Princess and the Frog''. He has scored six Disney-Pixar films: ''Toy Story'', ''A Bug's Life'', ''Toy Story 2'', ''Monsters, Inc.'', ''Cars'' and most recently ''Toy Story 3''. Newman has been nominated for twenty Academy Awards, winning twice. He has also won three Emmys, six Grammy Awards, and the Governor's Award from the Recording Academy. Newman was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2007, Newman was inducted as a Disney Legend. Newman was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2013.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
