When I started these pages, I was
unsure whether I should include Disney songs.
There are so many internet pages dedicated to
Disney songs and Disney much that to add much
more merely duplicates that which is better
covered elsewhere. A search on "disney
songs" yields 3,500 pages at the Gooble
search engine whilst "disney" yields
over 3 million pages.
However, the Disney music, is part
of our children's music culture in the UK, and to
exclude it would leave just part of a story told.
For my own collection, I searched
for a set of CDs that would cover a wide scope of
the early Disney music, and I found Music of
Disney Legacy in Song [BOX SET] covering
nearly 80 Disney songs. At the time of writing I
have ordered my copy from Amazon USA. It's not
available at the British site.
I am disappointed not to have found,
"We are Siamese" on the CD.
Amazon Editorial Review
the most comprehensive of Disney collections,
though the Classic Disney
series is more up to date. Spread across
three discs, the set features hits and forgotten
favorites from movies, TV, and the parks
(although more thorough work remains to be done
in the last regard). Since the Disney catalog is
in a state of constant change, this is the only
place to get some songs that aren't currently
available; these days it's a rare treat to hear
"Cruella De Vil" from 101 Dalmations,
"Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," from Song of the
South, and Annette's theme from The Monkey's
Uncle. A thick CD booklet is included, putting
the songs in the context of Walt Disney's long,
astounding career. --John Sanchez
