Mouse Music #13 – The Princess and the Frog

Welcome to Mouse Music, where we celebrate the magic, music and history of the Walt Disney Company! In our 13th episode, we discuss the 49th Disney animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog!

Joining Will & Wend for their trip down the bayou is Rachel, Chris & Todd! The full hostful head to New Orleans to talk about the 2009 animated musical, ’The Princess and the Frog‘, scored by Sideshow favourite composer Randy Newman.

Up next, it’s time to turn back the hands of the Sideshow clock and head back to the past in the Disney Music Archives. Chris brings us three earworms for the price of two from Disney legend George Bruns that all share a similar history. For today’s episode, we provide a healthy dose of toe-tapping dixieland jazz in That Happy Rag, The Humphrey Hop, and 1925 in all their various iterations over the years and their magnum opus in the Autoparts Harmonic Orchestra at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

Rachel and Todd return us to the present to finish the show In the Parks in New Orleans Square over at Disneyland! After a rundown of the land’s history, the team take a stroll through the narrow, winding streets and intimate courtyards to celebrate and share their thoughts and memories of the mint juleps, French cuisine, authentic architecture, Club 33 and atmosphere of the birthplace of jazz.
