When you’re young and there’s time
You forget the past
You don’t think that you will, but you do
But I know that I don’t have time enough
And I’ll never get over losing you
I’d be so excited if Randy Newman joined the Hollywood Party with a performance during #RockinEve, 12/31 at 8/7c on ABC.
“He Gives Us All His Love” – RANDY NEWMAN
Randy Newman sure sounds sincere when he sings the title phrase, so if you hear this outside the context of Sail Away, his brilliant 1972 LP, it’s easy to assume he believes it.
In the context of the album, though, this is a devastating joke. And though that joke doesn’t really need much explanation, I’ll still encourage you to go listen to the album from beginning to end to really get it.
The entire time I’m watching Marriage Story I’m like “damn this music sounds just like Toy Story” and it’s because RANDY NEWMAN did the soundtrack I’m Mcfucking losing it
Congratulations to the 77th Golden Globe Nominees
Marriage Story (Noah Baumbach) (2019)

Happy birthday Randy Newman
Song Review: Chris Thile - “The World Isn’t Fair” (Live, Nov. 23, 2019)
No one can do Randy Newman like Randy Newman, so Chris Thile wisely did Randy Newman like Chris Thile.
Performing “The World Isn’t Fair” on the Nov. 23 “Live From Here” broadcast and releasing it on the occasion of Newman’s 76th birthday on Thanksgiving, Thile recounts Newman’s imagined conversation with Karl Marx against a fuller, but still sparse, arrangement. It’s a tasteful tribute, although Newman’s caustic lyrics are less so in Thile’s rendering.
But the message remains true, depressing and, thanks to Newman’s slanted view on things, funny.
Grade card: Chris Thile - “The World Isn’t Fair” (Live, Nov. 23, 2019) - B+
Happy 76th, Randy Newman.

Somebody hurt you
And you don’t know
what to do
And you think
how so many people live
through things like this
but it’s true
You can get over anything,
I’m telling you the truth
