    Default Season 366 - House of Mouse

    Evening all, no intro vid just a quick write-up.

    This week I'd quite like us to celebrate the songs of Walt Disney Studios. They're songs that will have shaped childhoods no matter when you grew up, and later become the bane of your life when you have kids of your own.

    Disney have gone through some great songwriters from the Sherman Brothers, through to Alan Menken and latterly Lin-Manuel Miranda who have created songs that not only provide perfect accompaniment to the film but often stand up on their own as outstanding songs.

    There's lots of jazz, loads of the early stuff is filled with music that is perfect for the ukulele but most of all it's all fun.

    So get silly and bring me any song from a Disney or Pixar film. Should you spend any time with kids I'd love to see them join in too if possible. I'm sure Nathan and I will bring something at some point this week.

    Normal rules apply, don't want to see anything before midnight Hawaii time, and Harry's week still has about 36 hours to run.

    If you're of the song writing persuasion yourself, either write me a song in the Disney style (however that manifests in your head) or about a Disney film.

    I want to hear ukes. Embellishment is fine of course but let's not forget why we're here.

    Have fun!

    I remember a friends reply when he heard that Disney bought the rights to Star Wars:
    I am looking forward to the songs!

    No songs in the Disney Star Wars movies this far, dissapointing. But plenty other Disney movies to pick from!

    Disney owns the muppets so I am looking for songs they covered. I found one other song to play from one of my son's favorite movies as well.

    Glad you like it guys! Couple things:

    Song limit: 1 per day please. Gives everyone a chance to be heard I think.

    Star Wars/Ghibli/Marvel/Fox/whoever else they've bought: gonna say no on this. If the film doesn't start like this it doesn't count:

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    That totally makes sense. Disney owns everything these days, so it would be way too broad if they were all included.

    Damn! There goes the song I was about to write to be recorded in a Storm trooper mask with my narrator complaining about how his superior officers keep making the same mistakes, so the outcome for the poor sods in the white armour is always the same! (It does appear that the same plot is recycled every other film. )
    "Build another death star!" they said!
    As soon as it was announced we knew
    We'd all end up dead!


    PS Would anyone dare to sing "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" in these paedophile obsessed days?

    Even if it's not for this season I'd love to hear that song some time Berni
