Essential Randy Newman 1968-1977

I will admit that I originally hated Randy Newman. All I thought about was the Toy Story soundtrack. Sorry Randy, you just did not have a friend in me.
Then I decided to give his early stuff a good listen... and found out - HEY! There is way more to Randy Newman than that god awful soundtrack.

My good friend Samantha McCarthy made me this Essential Randy Newman mix in attempts to convince me of his talent. Three years later I got this in the mail. This is one well thought out Randy Newman mix! It includes her favorite songs from his first five albums placed in sequential order. Enjoy!

Put it in HERE

1. Living Without You (this is my favorite Randy Newman song)
2. I Think He's hiding
3. The Beehive State
4. Have You Seen My Baby?
5. Suzanne
6. Lover's Prayer
7. Burn On
8. Political Science
9. Dayton, Ohio-1903
10. Last Night I Had A Dream
11. Sail Away
12. Marie
13. Kingfish
14. A Wedding in Cherokee County
15. Texas Girl at the Funeral of Her Father
16. In Germany Before the War
17. Jolly Coppers on Parade

  1. Great stuff. I can't pass on suggesting that you look into the album "Nilsson Sings Newman," now.
