RandyNewmanhas emergedas one of the most importantcom- RANDYNEWMAN
posersandsongwriters in popularmusic.Hisriserom"cultidol"
slatusto hiscurrentinternational
recognitionas a giftedperformer
andcomposer hasbeenchonicled by allformso media,aswellas
by fellowartists.

Commercially, Newmanis best knownas the writero hrtsongs


suchas "lvlama Told Me Not To Come,"recordedby ThreeDog
Night,and "l Thinklt's GoingTo RainToday,"recordedby Judy
Collins andDaveVanRonk,amongothers.Overthe laslfiveyears,
RandyNewmansongshaveappearedon albumsby intepreters as
diverseas Art Garfunkel,Ringo Starr,BarbraStreisand,Etta
James,JoeCocker,LindaRonstadt,BonnieRaittandSonnyTerry&
BrownieMcGhee.Newmanalso receiveda greatdealo{ attention
for his work on the soundtrackof f\,4ick
Jagger'sPertormance,in
whichhe conducted, sangand accompanied himselfon pianoon
"GoneDeadTrain."
"RandyNewman'smusic
Bornin NewOrleans, Newmanmovedto Caliornia withhisfamilyat is deeplyentrenchedin
anearlyage At 6 he beganplayingpiano.At 12he doveheadlong
intomuslctheory,a studywhichhe latercontinuedat U.C.L.A.
Americana."
Threeof Newman's uncles,Alred.Lioneland Emil,are muchre-
spectedconductors and filmscorecomposers (in 1972,Newman
premiered SailAway at New York'sPhilharmonic Hallwith Emil
conducting, he debutedGood Old Soys at the AtlanticPhil-
harmonrc). Fromhis deceptively simplepianoaccmpanimnts to
hismasterul useof fullorchestra, RandyNewman's musicisdeeply
entrenched in Americana. Slrainsof SteohenFoster.bluesand
countryriffs,a sophisticateduse of rhythmand rhymethat echoes
theshowtunesandclassicpopballadry o PoteandGershwin and
Hart(Newman, in act,beganhiscareerwritingglossyBrillBuilding
typepop tunes)underliehis work. Manyo his songsdeal with
ordinary peoplein ordinarysituatjons (heonce saidthatwhathe
reallydoesis put shortstoriesto music),but no writerin contem-
porary musichasmanaged to carveouta persona! nicheinquitethe
wayRandyNewman has.Andnonehasbeenableto getlo thecore
o a sitLration,
establish a locale,character andmood(witha turnof
phrase or loLrchof thetrulybizarre),withintheframework o a three
ninutesongin quitethe way RandyNewmancan.

Fromhis debutalbum,RandyNewman,downthrough2 Songs,


RandyNewmanLive,SailAwayandGoodOdBoys,Newman'swork
hasearnedbothcriticalacclaimand an evergrowing,everloyal
audience. LittleC minalsis no exception.Fromthe titletrack("lt's
abouta junkiewho wantslo go with these guyson a robberyand
theydon'twanthimto go . . . ") to "Sigmund
Freud'slmpersonation
Of AlbertEinsteinIn America"(writtenfor the movieversionof
Ragtime), to "ShortPeople"(". . . they don't deserveto live"),
Newrnanhas neverbeen in better torm- lyricallyas weli as
musically.his foliocontainsmorerock n'rollthanin his prevrous
eforts,whichshouldbe a pleasantsurprisefor long-timeNewman
ians.

Althoughhe's appearedon MidnightSpeciaiand SaturdayNight

They got little noses They got little cars
And tiny little teeth That go beep,beep,beep
They wear platform shoes They got little voices
On their nastylittle feet Goin' peep,peep,peep
They got grubby little fingers
Well,I don't want no short people And dirty littleminds

Of HerFather l'lfBe Home
Here I am lost in the wind l'll be home
'Round
in circlessailing l'll be home
Like a ship that nevercomesin
Standin'by mysel
Whenyour nights are troubled
And you're all alone
Sing a sad songfor a good man
Whenyou're feelingdown
Sing a sad songfor me
And need somesympathy
Sing a sad song for the sailor
And there'sno one elsearound
A thousandmiles from the sea
To keep you company
Remember,baby
Here I am aloneon the plain
You can alwayscount on me
Sun'sgoingdown
It's sta"tingto rain
l'll be home
Papa,we'll go saiting
l'll be home
l'll be home
l'll be home
l'll be home

Whereveryou may wander


Whereveryou may roam
You come back
And l'll be waiting herefor you
'Cause
no one elsewill ever love you
The way I do
l'll be here to comfort you
And seeyou through

l'll be home
l'll be home
l'll be home

ln America
The world of scienceis mY game
And Albert Einsteinis mY name
I was born in Germany
And l'm happy to be
Here in the land of the braveand the free

ln the year of nineteenfive


Merelytrying to survive
Took my knapsackin mY hand
Caughta train for Switzerland

America,America
God shedhis graceon thee
Y o u h a v ew h i p p e dt h e F i l i p i n o
Now you rule the westernsea

Americansdreamof gypsies,I havefound


And gypsyknivesand gypsYthighs
That pound and pound and pound and pound
And African appendages that almostreachthe ground
Little boys playingbaseballin the rain

America,America
Step out into the light
You're the bestdreamman haseverdreamed
be white
And may all your Christmases

YouCan'tFoolThe Fat Man


Sittin'with the fat man
T r y i n ' t o g e ta l o a n
Talkin' about the horses
And the women that we'veknown

He wasspittin' on the sidewalk


S q u i n t i n 'i n t o t h e s u n
G r e e t i n ' a l lt h e p e o p l e
S m i l i n ' a te v e r y o n e

I said"Hey listen,fat man


I just can't get a break
Must I rraymy whole life long
For just one mistake?"

"My
brother'sin the armedforces
My sisteris in jail
Won't you giveme fifty dollars
So I can pay her bail?"

He said"You can't ool the fat man


No,you can't fool me
You're lust a two-bit grifter
And that's all you'll everbe"

There is a courtyard here in Chicago
Down by the river where no one goes
We could be marriedthere in the courtyard
By this old Spanishpriestthat no one knows
And he'll say
"Nel
b l u ,d i p i n t o
D i p i n t od i b l u
Felicede stare
Di stare lassir"
That meansyou love him
And he lovesyou
"Piu
bel ci sono
Ci seltu"
