The Gipsy Kings’ Spanish “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” from Toy Story 3

I took my nieces to see Toy Story 3 this weekend and even with really high expectations it was even better than I thought it would be! In addition to a fantastic plot that allowed for the introduction of innumerable new toyfriends, but it had that magical Pixar touch that made it completely appropriate for kids and adults alike!

VERY, VERY MILD SPOILER ALERT – One of the many, many funny moments in the movie was Buzz Lightyear getting set to Spanish mode, which you can get a little taste of towards the end of the official trailer:

As a nice touch, and yet another pleasant surprise for me, the movie included a Spanish version of Randy Newman’s classic Toy Story theme song, “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” performed by one of my favorite bands, The Gipsy Kings! (Is there any detail Pixar doesn’t get right?)

I managed to find “Hay un amigo en mi” by The Gipsy Kings on YouTube and have embedded it below. (I couldn’t find a soundtrack for the movie on amazon, but there is a listing for the single download.)
