Welcome to the first episode of Mouse Music in 2016, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney company. Thanks for stopping by! What a show we have for you today! In celebration of our one year anniversary, we have decided to devote our seventh episode to all things Muppety. Rachel takes over hosting duties as we finally talk The Muppets!
The Muppets were purchased by Disney in 2004 and so Rachel, Will and Wend sit down to fondly discuss their recent history, covering the TV specials, the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ video, the 2 feature films, ‘The Muppets’ and ‘Muppets Most Wanted‘, and the ABC television series.
In the Disney Music Archives, Chris Lyndon, a man we all love, bypasses the Disney vault today and walks a few doors down to the Jim Henson vault to bring us a classic and much-loved song from our childhood taken from the show Sesame Street, ‘Sing’. Chris shares with us some of the more famous renditions of the song, why it means so much to him, as well as his love for The Muppets and the attraction in the parks.
Finally, after their recent trip to Walt Disney World, Will and Wend sit down with Rachel to chat about their love for Muppet*Vision 3D in their In the Parks segment. So grab your 3D glasses as we head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida! We guide you through one of our favourite Disney shows, providing you with a brief history lesson, all the updates over the years and our experiences watching the show on both coasts!
Do you love The Muppets and Jim Henson as much as we do? Please get in touch with us! We’d be so happy to hear your Muppet story, as well as your thoughts on the new series, ‘Sing’, Sesame Street and Muppet*Vision 3D!

Welcome everyone to Sideshow’s happy place, Mouse Music, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company. Continuing our discussion on the Disney Renaissance, in our fourth episode, we talk about the 1992 classic and multiple award-winning soundtrack Aladdin, by Alan Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice!
To kick off the show, the lovely and talented Rachel Herrick joins us on our magic carpet for another delightful chat about the 31st film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, Aladdin. We have a blast discussing our earliest memories of this Arab folk tale, it’s incredible cast, and our favourite songs!
Also, our fountain of knowledge Chris Lyndon returns with undoubtedly the best segment of the Disney Music Archives yet! Chris sits down with Wendell to present us with a song from the 1978 Disney-animated Christmas short, ‘The Small One’ titled “Clink, clink, clank, clank”, composed by Robert F. Brunner with lyrics by Don Bluth.
Chris also joins Will and Wend to finish the show with their popular In the Parks segment. The topic this time is one of our favourites, the legendary Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, and we have a blast discussing the history of the attraction in all Disney parks, their favourite version, and the musical earworms that accompany the attraction by the Sherman Brothers!
If you love Disney as much as us then please get in touch! We´d LOVE to hear your thoughts on Aladdin, The Small One AND Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, as well as your favourite film of the Disney Renaissance!

Join Ian, Will, Wend and Rob for the latest and funniest instalment of “In Defence of” so far! They thoroughly enjoy discussing and bravely defending the final part of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, written and directed by George Lucas. Featuring another phenomenal score by maestro John Williams, Revenge of the Sith ended the saga on a high, but has been unfairly tarnished over the years from it’s place in the prequel trilogy. We look past this and judge the film on it’s own merits, of which it has many. May the force be with all of us on this one!

Happy New Year and welcome to the inaugural episode of Mouse Music, a podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company. In our first episode we combine two of our great loves, Star Wars and Disney!
We have a blast talking with our friends Richard and Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland about the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer and irresponsibly speculating about the new movie.
Also, Wendell chats with Chris Lyndon about his time working at the Disney parks and to debut their new ongoing segment, the Disney Music Archives. Keeping with the space-travel theme, Chris presents us with a comical song from a 1955 episode of the Disneyland anthology series titled “Man and the Moon”, composed by the musical legend George Bruns.
Finally, in celebration of the 28th Anniversary of Star Tours, we start another new segment In the Parks by diving in to the history of the attraction and exploring the incredible music created for it by Richard Bellis and Michael Giacchino.
We invite you to share with us your reactions to the new Star Wars teaser trailer, your experiences riding the Starspeeder 1000, as well as your favourite music by George Bruns! Contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us: @sideshowsound.

To finish off 2014, we each bring two of our favourite main themes to the table and discuss what they mean to us.
Our first selections include the militaristic Thunderbirds theme by Barry Gray, two themes from Bear McCreary including the musical palindrome that is Da Vinci’s Demons and the unsettling main theme to the television series Caprica, the unforgettable Tara’s Theme from Gone with the Wind by the prolific film composer Max Steiner. For the second round of choices we discuss the beautifully majestic Star Trek Voyager theme Jerry Goldsmith composed, the amazingly bombastic Wing Commander theme by David Arnold, the beautiful, childlike theme for To Kill a Mockingbird by Elmer Bernstein, and the infamous and arguably greatest superhero theme of all time, John Williams’ Superman theme.

Will and Wend kick off the Halloween season by discussing three Halloween scores that are often overlooked. We begin with a modern anthology horror featuring a spooktacular score by Douglas Pipes. Trick ‘r Treat is melodically easy to follow and perfectly captures the spirit of Halloween. The second film score we look at is The Orphanage by Fernando Velázquez, a film composer that shows us you don’t always have to be over-the-top when writing for the horror genre, you can still write beautiful music. The El Orfanato score speaks more to the sadness of the children in-film than the horrors that lie in wait for them. Finally, we discuss Danny Elfman’s Sleepy Hollow score. No stranger to Halloween music, this dark realm of Tim Burton’s shows the composer’s clearly adept at scoring horror movies. We strongly encourage you to revisit all three of these underrated Halloween soundtracks and experience the thrills, chills and kills all over again!

Join us for the debut episode of Sideshow Sound Radio, as we discuss the film scores that inspired each of us to become composers.
Starting with the symphonic and unashamedly emotional Star Trek First Contact score by Jerry Goldsmith and his son Joel Goldsmith, featuring an amalgam of almost all the Star Trek themes the film composer brought to the franchise including two new thematic gems, we go on to discuss the extremely underrated Thomas Newman and his intimate and well-crafted Meet Joe Black score featuring the heartbreaking cue “That Next Place”. Next, we discuss Frank Herbert’s Dune Soundtrack by Graeme Revell and the untraditional orchestration the composer used to help reflect the story of the three-part sci-fi mini-series, and finally, Danny Elfman’s dark, memorable, and tone-setting Batman 1989 score, orchestrated and conducted by the film score genius that was Shirley Walker.
