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!
