Classic Disney: 60 Years of Musical Magic

Image via Wikipedia

I finally got a copy of Disney‘s Classics.  A 5 box CD set with soundtracks spanning 60 years of Disney songs.  Some of the songs I’ve only heard a few times during my childhood in Disney’s sing-along videos.  Others are more familiar like soundtracks from full-length 2D animated movies of my generation – Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, etc…

Music brings back old memories of being transported into a world of magic and imagination, singing lines from theme musics, falling in love with the dashing and courageous hero, admiring the wit and beauty of the heroine, getting a kick from the comic relief from the funny antics of sidekicks and minions, the intellectual verbal repertoire of the characters, and being one with the protagonists in the quest of truth, honor, justice, peace, and love (so Bohemian of me).

Fall in love again with the Beauty and the Beast by Angela Lansbury.   Soar high on a magic carpet with Brad Kane and Lea Salonga in A Whole New World. Laugh out loud with Les Poissons and Monkey’s Uncle. Have A Spoonful of Sugar with Mary Poppins, value the wonder of nature with Circle of Life from the Lion King, and remember your bestest friend with You’ve Got A Friend in Me from Toy Story.  Go The Distance with Hercules, and get Out There with the Hunchback of Notre Dame.  And, like Disneyland tradition, say to yoursel “It’s a Small World (After All)” but we should always keep moving forward.

I’ve posted below the track titles of these 5 CDs for your reference taken from wikipedia.
