Toy Story 2 "When She Loved Me" Sarah McLachlan 1999
When She Loved Me (From "Toy Story 2" / Soundtrack Version)
"When She Loved Me" is a song written by Randy Newman for Pixar's animated film Toy Story 2 (1999), recorded by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan. The song reveals the backstory of Jessie, a toy cowgirl, as she reflects upon her now-defunct relationship with her original owner, by whom she is eventually outgrown. Heard in the film during a flashback sequence, the filmmakers decided to incorporate a song into the montage in which Jessie details her backstory to Woody after multiple attempts to show the character explaining her traumatic experience verbally proved unsuccessful.
