An influential singer-songwriter who is best known for writing the soundtracks for numerous films, including Ragtime, the Meet the Parents trilogy, and numerous Disney films. He has frequently been lampooned by shows such as Mad TV and Family Guy due to his physically awkward appearance, "goofy-sounding" singing voice, and the homogeneous sound of his music. Many people underestimate his talent particularly as a result of the third reason he is so widely parodied in the media. However, many of these same people have probably never paid any attention to the lyrics of his songs, which are incredibly profound and greatly overshadow the relative simplicity of his musical skills.
Randy Newman is not unlike Bob Dylan. He's not a great singer, musician, nor is he particularly good-looking. However, he is a lyrical genius who can touch on some of the deepest human emotions as well as incorporate deep social commentary.
