Then I listened again, and again, and again. I have the CD in my car and I play it over and over. Tim Curry's version of "Davy Crockett," always makes me laugh. The SpectroMagic parade theme makes me cry remembering the beauty of the parade. I can sing "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" and "It's a Small World."
The first time you hear this CD, you may not really like it. If you play it for the third time, you will love it.
Cons: Tim Curry
When I came across this CD, I was in the Walt Disney World resort. The mood is light and happy, and what seems just as light as the mood, is the cash in my wallet. One look at Tinkerbell sprinkling her fairy dust over the Cinderella Castle against a purple sky is all I needed to see before the cash in my wallet floated into the cash registers at Disney World.
Actually, I looked at the back of the CD first very quickly and scanned for artists I liked. There was one or two that appealed to my tastes and I bought this product.
What caught my eye right away is Olivia Newton-John singing Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid. I love the original from the movie that is sung by Jodi Benson, and I loved Olivia Newton-John's voice. The fact is that Olivia doesn't come close to Jodi Benson's classic version, but it's not without it's charm. The original, if you don't know, is a beautiful ballad with beautiful lyrics that tell the dream of this mermaid, Ariel, of becoming a human with legs instead of fins. Olivia does a nice job singing this song, the problem in my opinion falls with the drumming. For the original version, there are no drums, just an orchestra that accent the lyrics and provide the right drama at the right time. On this Olivia version, the drums give the song an off-time feeling and Olivia's voice comes off sounding awkward.
The year of this release by the way was 1996. 1996 was one of the few years when the hit TV show Friends was huge, and everybody who was a fan knew that The Rembrandts was the band that sings the theme song to the show. So during my quick perusal, their band name caught my eye as well.Read more ›
Overall, this album really is a good purchase. It's perfect for packing your bags for Disney World or just a quiet evening at home. All of these songs are fun, uplifting numbers that will quickly brighten the spark of childhood that all adults have somewhere deep inside of them.

I love all the songs!
My most favorite songs of all time is 'I Just Can't Wait to Be King/Hakuna Matata' and 'Remember the Magic'.
The music is horribly dated. Also, overkill on keyboards and some REALLY bad lounge singing. However, this thing is comedy GOLD! Read morePublished on October 11, 2012 by Katherine D.
