My favorite version of this song.

This song's meaning was perfectly fitting for today. My dear brother was buried today. All the people were there to show their love for him today. But none of them were there for the past 18 months whilst he struggled with ill health, only me. Why is life so tragic. Why are people unable to go to their hearts and help someone in deep trouble. I think I feel things too much, but then O think, no I don't. I let myself feel and then act, otherwise I would be betraying myself. Thanks Randy Newman.

A timeless piece - heart wrenchingly authentic.

Randy Newman is such a genius. I love this.

I think Newman, the composer certainly did do it justice. If there is an even more poignant version, I think it would be Peter Gabriel, who plays it almost entirely straight from the Newman version, holding back tears, I think.

Every moment in art or life is in flux, every perception is temporary.

All these smiles hide the way we really feel. A life full of contradictions. Such a heavy sorrow to bear. Like a clown, they can be some of the saddest people in the world.

It's the approach... the feeling. The way he sings "smiles" with that hesitant wilt. That's what sets his meditation on these words apart from the other musicians who have tried their hand. @In the Art, your comment is inspiring to a fellow like me. I would prefer to think a better interpretation lies somewhere deep within the depths of the collective unconscious, waiting for some brazenly lonely explorer with decent pitch to find it.

I love Neil Diamond singing this. He covers Randy's songs tantalising slowly, and his voice pleads with the soul. Bobby Darin also did a good cover.

Amazingly so simple, almost hymn like 1, 4, 5 chords opening then wonderfully opened out and developed, plus insightful words.

One of my favourite writers and performers.Timeless and beautiful and I prefer Randy singing his own songs than any other artist.He wrote em and he can sing em.Jim.Liverpool.

The bridge (1:42) chord progression is so moving, greatly enhanced by the orchestration here (especially the last chords at 1:54); brilliant.

What a beautiful performance, that green movement on a background is so fitting. What a heavenly joy it must be to feel your song to such a degree and be able to play it for people who appreciate it.

He wrote this almost 50 years ago? He must have had a time machine. Heartbreaking and beautiful.

Heartbreaking and beautful with a little sly humor. That's why Randy is one of the best.
