• Randy Newman Grateful For His Victory

    HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Musician Randy Newman said tonight the Oscar-winning
    song he penned for the animated movie “Toy Story 3′ was not a representation
    of his best work in film.
    But he was grateful for the win nevertheless — his second in 20
    “ It was very nice, as it always is when people want to give you
    something,’ Newman said of his victory in the original song category for “We
    Belong Together.’
    When writing for a film, the songs “come easiest because there’s
    information. It should be happy, it should be fast, it should say this in
    general, and I can usually do it fairly easily and fairly quickly,’ he said.
    However, a minute later, Newman confessed, “This isn’t the most
    consequential thing I’ve ever done for a movie by a longshot.’
    Newman cited the music he created for “Toy Story 2,’ “A Bug’s Life,’
    “Awakenings’ and “The Natural’ as some of his best work in Hollywood.
    “I thought highly of them at the time,’ he said.
    Newman has spent a lifetime making music, but when asked whether college
    students who aspire to be musicians should enter the business, the singer-
    songwriter said, “It’s like a bank that’s already been robbed. It’s over.’
    Kidding aside, Newman said, “Keep doing it. If you stay in it that
    long, you must love it.’
    “It’s a really tough living to make but no, if you love it, do it and
    see what happens,’ he said. “It’s not going to hurt you. It’s a very
    complicated thing. You can study it for the rest of your life.’
