About the Song
"Mama Told Me Not to Come" is a song by Randy Newman written for Eric Burdon's first solo album in 1966. Newman says that it is a lighthearted reflection on the Los Angeles music scene in the late 1960s. He recounts a wild party, and uses the lyrics to convey a sense of excitement and confusion. The song is loaded with the black humour, sarcasm, and double entendre that made Newman famous. Among other topics, he makes thinly veiled references to drugs, alcohol, and sex. The first recording of "Mama Told Me Not to Come" was made by Eric Burdon & The Animals.

About the Artist
Randall Stuart “Randy” Newman (born November 28, 1943) is an American singer/songwriter,[1] arranger, composer, and pianist who is notable for his mordant (and often satirical) pop songs and for his many film scores. Newman is noted for his practice of writing lyrics from the perspective of a character far removed from Newman's own biography, often using the literary device of an unreliable narrator.

One of his biggest hits, "Short People" was written from the perspective of "a lunatic"[2] who hates short people. Since the 1980s, Newman has worked mostly as a film composer.

He has scored five Disney-Pixar films: Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc. and Cars, and is set to return for Toy Story 3 and Cars 2. He has been singled out for a.
