But at least one commenter, motherseer, didn't forget the song's power in context of the movie.
Thank you for posting this beautiful video. My daughter and I saw Toy Story 2 together when she was little. It made both of us cry then, so sad for the little doll in the movie. Now that she's a teenager, this song still makes us both cry, for the loss of those little girl days. I've stayed the same, but she's moved on. And even though she loves me it's not the same total, uncritical, unconditional love; and oh, how I miss that sweet little girl. :o(
The multi-faceted pathos in that comment reflects in an Escherian way the song itself as part of the movie.
Thanks motherseer. And thanks, Randy Newman.
