Thank you to the authors for the wonderful gift they have created. I did not even realize what a fan of Disney songs I was until I read through this book. The care and poignant details surrounding each tune stirs such nostalgia, that although this book could best be used for reference, I found myself reading it cover to cover, hanging onto each word as though I were reading a novel. I would reccommend this book for anyone who has ever been moved by any Disney movie or song...it will take you by the hand as you stroll through your old favorites and stir within you the impetus to rediscover new ones. This book is also as ageless as it is timeless in that I had the most fun sitting down and going through it page by page with my children (aged 1 thru 9), listening to the memories they have already attached to the Disney songs of their generation.

Lovers of all that is Disney know how much music contributes to its movies, TV shows, and the rest. Hischak and Robinson's book is a wonderful and wide-ranging compendium of information about all that is musical Disney. The entries not only describe the music, but its larger context, including its contribution to the larger plot, the performers and covers, and lots more. My guilty pleasure was the Ballad of Davy Crockett, a chart hit written for the TV mini-series (although it wasn't called that then) from the 1950s starring Fess Parker. I still remember the words, and the tune. Anyone have memories of other Disney songs that evoke a time, a place, a mood, or a moment? (If so, you'll be glad you referenced them in this splendid book.)

WOW! As with Mr. Hischak's other books, this Disney Song Encyclopedia is as thorough a treatment of the subject as you would ever want. All the songs, all the memories, and all the fascinating stories that accompany each song. An amazing accomplishment! Flipping through the pages, I was reminded of lyrics and melodies I hadn't thought of in years. What a shame that when many people think of Disney songs they think of Lion King. As wonderful a score as that was, there were so many that preceeded it and I am thrilled to revisit them with this book. Thank you Mr. Hischak and Mr. Robinson for the work and research you did. It's a wonderful trip down memory lane!

This book brings back so many memories of childhood and beyond. You will be amazed to learn so many songs that have become part of our lives were introduced in Disney productions. And so many wonderful singers and musicians have "covered" the Disney Songbook so make room on your MP3 players for downloading lots of classic Disney. Enjoy!!

The Disney Song Encyclopedia is a comprehensive listing of the songs that made Disney great. It is amazing how many I had forgotten! The work is of the same high level of excellence the authors have demonstrated before. A fun collection that brings back memories.

The articles are clear and easy to read. The "find" feature in the e-book could be a bit clearer and better organized. The book is a great resource for finding Disney song facts.

I'm a huge music enthusiast especially of any Disney music. This is a great reference guide. Hopefully will get an update at some point.

My friend has a mental index similar to this book. It still held some new and forgotten gems for him and he loved it!
