“He Gives Us All His Love” was part of Randy Newman’s score for the 1971 film Cold Turkey and also appears on his 1972 album Sail Away. I had not see Cold Turkey. I recently saw part of the film on TV and was shocked that the version was different – it doesn’t have the orchestrated background that the album version does. There is a CD of the film score with a booklet with extensive notes. I could never figure this one out. Was it satire or a straight forward religious song? Based on Newman’s other work, I assumed satire but I don’t see that anywhere in the lyrics.
