Randy Newman Pens & Performs Quarantine Song Called 'Stay Here'

Randy Newman - the pop tunesmith behind quirky hits "I Love L.A." and "Short People", and a perennial Oscar victor for Pixar films - has written a song for the coronavirus era, "Stay Away".

The Grammy-winner behind classic Toy Story songs including "You've Got a Friend in Me" and "Andy's Birthday" instrumental debuted his newest tune "Stay Away" on Wednesday.

The song urges citizens to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Venus in sweatpants, that's who you are". "I'm gonna be with you 24 hours a day", he sings.

Releasing a track called Stay Away, Newman brings us a comedic take on keeping our distance in order to curb the spread of the virus.

"Stay away from me, baby, keep your distance, please". A situation in which the best thing you can do for your loved one is staying away is a situation tailormade for his style. "Words of love in times like these".

"Stay six feet away from other people".

Newman concludes his AirTalk piece by saying, "Thank you very much".

"I wish everyone well, and wish myself well, to some extent", he says. On a more serious note, he goes on to send his good wishes to the wider country, encouraging people to stay safe and vigilant during these times. "We'll be all right".

It is not the most tightly or classically structured song Newman has ever put out in his five-decade-plus career, but it will strike a chord among shut-in listeners.
