Song of the day: Randy Newman- Short People

randy-newman-short-people

A song from 1977 today! The song was written and sung by the same person who wrote You’ve Got A Friend In Me, which is in one of the Toy Story movies. The song is not written and inspired by what Newman thinks, mind you, but he sings about another person who thinks this way about short people. There even has been a person who tried to make a law to forbid radioplay of the song in the state of Maryland! However, it has been on number two in the Billboard chart, and it’s a bit forgotten. I personally think the song is very simple but good. (And I really like short people, so no offence if you’re short!) Enjoy
