A Whole New World
Hi, everybody! Welcome back to another episode of Press Play: Disney Edition. Get ready, because this time, we’re going to the movies. Part two in our series (See Part 1 HERE), focuses on those timeless Disney classics we all loved as a child and still love today. What would our childhood be, if we never spent a Jolly Holiday with Mary or looked for The Second Star to the Right? Would we know all the Colors of the Wind? Would we ever Seize the Day? (Oh, wordplay. I love you.) All of these songs are significant to us in different ways; memories of a time, a place, a feeling. We take them with us, to feel like a kid again, to escape reality for even the smallest of moments. A soundtrack that extends farther than any other, these movie-songs have that signature Disney style; unique to an ever evolving musical society. To tell the truth, Disney music is just, plain and simply, awesome; fun and entertaining. I know you’ll have to agree. This collection is extensive (very extensive), and if we were to list all of my favorites, we’d be here a very, very long time. So today, we’ll be looking at just a handful of these out-standing melodious moments from Disney’s movie history. I’ll give you the important task of telling me all your most-notable moments when we reach the comments. Until then, let’s get this party started!
Under the Sea: Who doesn’t love this song? The calypso beats; the fast-paced rhymes and lyrics. It’s a Disney classic! While Ariel may be wishing to be Part of Your World (Another fantastic piece off the soundtrack, I might add), Sebastian needs her to see all the magic and wonder that lives right under the sea. The Littler Mermaid listens closely as Sebastian & Friends sing with harmonious effort. His pleas are unsuccessful, of course, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. “Just look at the world around you, right here on the ocean floor. Such wonderful things surround you; what more is you lookin’ for?”
