As the name of the song implies, the song sings about how one can always rely on someone through even the roughest of times, thus, finding a friend in that someone. At first, it initially seems to be about Andy being that friend to Woody. However, as the film progresses, it becomes clear that Buzz is that friend instead. It is first heard as a solo in the opening credits of the first film as Andy plays with Woody and takes him downstairs. The solo and the duet version are listed as Tracks 1 and 16, respectively on the Toy Story Soundtrack. In the second film, a scene from Woody's Roundup features a Woody marionette on the show singing this song on a guitar, and then a kid on the set hugs him. It is also sung by Wheezy Robert Goulet at the end of the film, and this version can be heard in its entirety during the end credits and listed as Track 3 on the Toy Story 2 Soundtrack. The soundtrack also features an instrumental version of the song, performed by saxophonist Tom Scott with the same background music and arrangement as Goulet's , listed as Track Riders in the Sky has also performed a cover of this song on the album Woody's Roundup: A Rootin' Tootin' Collection of Woody's Favorite Songs , listed as Track 5, as well as their instrumental version, listed as Track 10 on the album. In the third film, almost the whole original version of the song is heard during the scene of Mrs.
You've Got a Friend in Me
The song is played during the opening credits for Toy Story, Toy Story 3 , and Toy Story 4 , establishing the importance of Woody and Andy in the first film and the importance of all his toys in the third and fourth. Toy Story 3 also uses it for irony and dramatic effect, as the opening credits harken back to the first film and the song abruptly fades out with "As the years go by, Our friendship will never die", before showing that Andy's remaining toys in the present day are boxed up and unused. When they were unused, Andy was 17 years old. In Toy Story 4, the song is heard during the opening montage, that features Andy playing with Woody, giving him to Bonnie as a teenager, and Bonnie playing with him, but soon starting to neglect him. In two sequels, the song is listened to by the characters as part of the story, as cover versions done at the end of the film for thematic reasons: at the end of Toy Story 2 , the character Wheezy starts to sing it to the other toys; during the end credits of Toy Story 3 , Buzz Lightyear and Jessie now a couple perform a pasodoble to a Spanish version of the song, deliberately played by Jessie to get Buzz to dance. The most significant use of the song was in the third act of Toy Story 2 , where an episode of Woody's Roundup the s puppet show he was based on shows the puppet Woody singing the song, directed at the young audience and featuring a small child hugging the puppet. Woody sees this and has an epiphany , realizing that his mission as a toy is to be there for a child.
We need you!
She is passionate about it. Also, as Joanna points out, men and women already inhabit a separate culture. And that my friend, is just a hint of the extent of the brain wash that Mormons experience. You need to do this ceremony first where you end up pledging all your money and property to the church: It's cruel to suggest it. Somehow I never believed any of that; I wanted a career and a small family and never believed religion was a way to identify good character. I hate to say it, but I don't see this ending well. Many men have begun leaving the Church in their early twenties as the mission has become more important.
Women do not get to hold the priesthood and function in an equal role with men. As my husband learns about Mormonism I get to see it through his fresh eyes. How will your spouse feel about that in 20 years. Leave her so you can both find people that youre more suited for. She probably doesn't even realize how crazy that is. Most couples who are married where one is a Mormon and the other isn't, usually stems from a situation where they both were married in the temple, then one of them lost their faith sometime after that. Catholics basically married catholics and protestants basically married protestants. You should be fine as long as you stick to the lines you have laid out. Meanwhile, he'll be adored and revered and flirted with by divorced nurses who would jump in the sack with him at a moment's notice. Mormonism is a lot more controlling and has a lot more downsides.
