Quick! What was the best thing about that little Disney/Pixar flick, Toy Story
? I mean after Buzz, Woody and the killer animation. Give? Well, space cadet, I'm here to tell ya it was that toe-tappin' tune You've Got A Friend In Me
. And, the voice behind that little ditty (besides its composer, Randy Newman,) is the extraordinary Lyle Lovett. It seems this long, tall Texan has been hitchin' his vocal wagon to a ton of great songs, and great movies
, over the last 10 years. From Stuart Little
(Walking Tall,) to Mumford
(Till It Shines, with Keb Mo,) to Hope Floats
(Smile.) Lyle Lovett has crafted a career out of smart songs and even smarter collaborations. Except for that whole Julia Roberts
It Will Make You Smile
Now all his cinematic songs are available on Smile: A Collection of Songs from the Movies
. It's one cool CD. Not a boyband
cool or a harmonious, rapper
cool, I'll give ya that. But, more like that feeling when, during a summer with the heat wave that had all the thermometers poppin', out of nowhere came a breeze and it made everything alright. Lyle Lovett and Smile
make everything alright.
