“I’ve always had a lot of respect from the people I respected. I’m always surprised when I go to England and they think so highly of me in terms as a writer. But I’m gratified to have songs that have lasted this long. It’s really a surprise. It must be a surprise to anyone who was around in the Seventies and Sixties.”

– 2013 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee Randy Newman (via Rolling Stone)
