Randy Newman's 1977 album, Little Criminals, characteristically features quirky characters and cynical views in his story-telling in lieu of traditional pop music themes. Short People became a hit single and the album peaked at #9 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Members of The Eagles, Glen Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit and J.D. Souther, appear throughout the album providing backing vocals and instrumental accompaniment.

After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Randy Newman began recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-titled album. Throughout the 1970s he released several other acclaimed albums such as: 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys. In addition to his solo recordings and regular international touring, Newman began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. The list of movies he has worked on since then includes The Natural, Awakenings, Ragtime, all three Toy Story pictures, Seabiscuit, James and the Giant Peach, A Bug's Life, and Disney/Pixar's Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters Inc. (which he also scored).

Randy Newman's many honors include six Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013—the same year he was given an Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International Award. Mostly recently, Newman was presented with a PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award in June 2014.
