3 You've Got a Friend - James Taylor

This song is how Toy story got to be so successful

I think you're confusing this song with Randy Newman's song You've Got A Friend In Me, which is connected with Toy Story. Different songs - Billyv

Wasn't it by Randy Newman? - Trollsfan536

It's actually written by Carole King who also recorded it and played it in some of her live shows. She recommended it to her friend James Taylor who had a hit single with it. Newman may have covered it too, I don't know. - Billyv
