Somewhere Out There free piano sheet music by James Horner

About the song

"Somewhere Out There" is the title of the 1986 track written by James Horner, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil for the animated movie "An American Tail".

It was originally performed by Phillip Glasser and Betsy Cathcart as the characters in the movie, mice Fievel and Tanya Mousekewitz. The film’s producer, Steven Spielberg, decided that the song had potential to become a Top 40 hit and brought Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram to record a pop version of the song for the movie’s ending.

On 15 november 1986, the track reached 31st place on the Adult Contemporary charts from Billboard and later that year got to the 83rd place in "Billboard Hot 100". In March 1987 "Somewhere Out There" was number 2 in the Top 40. The song was a major hit, selling over one million copies in US and becoming number 8 in the UK Top 10.

The music video was filmed in New York and was directed by Jeffrey Abelson. In the clip we can see Ronstadt and Ingram doodling scenes from the movie and looking down the window as the mice did in the film.

In the original version, the lyrics describe love in a more general way, the love of a brother and sister being separated by a long distance but having hope that their love will reunite them. The pop version of the single shows love in a more romantic manner.

"Somewhere Out There" won "Song of the Year" and "Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television" at the 30th Grammy Awards .

Since 1987, several artists covered the song such as: Liza Minelli, Cathy Cavadini, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, David Essex. Enjoy the free piano sheets for "Somewhere Out There", they are listed below!
