I’ve Got a Dream – Disney Music Monday

Welcome to another Disney Music Monday.  This blog is co-hosted by myself, and my friend Mike, who runs the My Dreams of Disney blog.  This blog hop takes a closer look at the music that makes Disney tick.  It could come from the theme parks, the movies, or the tv shows.  If it’s sung at Disney, it will be talked about in the blog hop.

Disney Music Monday #1

I like to focus on the music from the movies.  There are so many movies and so many songs from those movies.  It’s a vast subject to cover.    Last week, I looked at Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid.  This week, I’m moving to a more recent movie.  Everybody talks about the music from Frozen.  I’m moving back a couple of movies to Tangled which had some fine music of its won.

The song, I’m taking a look at is I’ve Got A Dream.  It’s a fun song which takes place in The Snuggly Duckling – a great name for a tavern.  It’s sung by the Pub Thugs, Flynn Ryder and Rapunzel.  This point of the song is to show people that everybody even the grittiest of people have dreams and that everybody should be trying to achieving those dreams no matter how big or small.  It’s one of the foundations that Disney was built.  Plus, it’s a fun song to listen to.

Part of Your World – Disney Music Monday

Disney Music Monday #1


Welcome to the inaugural #DisneyMusicMonday Blog Hop.  This co-hosted by me and Mike Ellis from My Dreams of Disney.  If you have a blog and you are a fan of music, then this is the blog hop for you.  Feel free to add your post by clicking the smiling frog at the bottom of the article.

With my inaugural post, I’m going to talk about Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid.  Everyone who is a fan of The Little Mermaid knows that the movie won the Academy Award for Best Score and Best Song from Under the Sea.  One of the other songs from the soundtrack is my favorite….Part of Your World.

It was written Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.  Menken wanted a song which told a story like a listener would hear in a Broadway musical.  The song is paced like a slower ballad so the listener can hear the inner-fight that Ariel is having about wanting to join the human world.

It was an overlooked song by the Academy Awards as it was not nominated for Best Song.  Under the Sea and Kiss the Girl were nominated showing the depth of the movie’s soundtrack.  However, it is a song that is not overlooked by me.

Thanks for joining on the #DisneyMusicMonday blog.  I’ll be back, next week, with another quick look into the music of Disney.
