Oh, Randy Newman wrote Our Town as well? That explains why I hate it so much.

Um...I don't really like any of these.

These are all terrible except the MacLachlan.

I'd have to go and listen to them all again as the only one I really remember is You've got a Friend in Me, which was a pretty catchy tune.

I would say I am to Pixar what you are to Bergman. You weren't here when it was me AND FroHam and Pixar had never made less than a really good movie.

Same here. So I guess I'm voting for that one!

None. I always thought Randy Newman was Pixar's one big weak spot.

Not even the ones where he doesn't sing? The Gypsy Kings version of "You Got a Friend in Me" is unrecognizable.

Whatever, Our Town is great. Not my favorite though. That will be "Time of your Life".
