In the good ol' days, Disneyland didn't need people like Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers to bring tweens into the park. I don't believe they do now, either. Sure, they had the Mousketeers. But they didn't seem to be the only appeal. I think Miley Cyrus is hugely overrated, and not particularly talented. I don't, however, have a major problem with non-traditional music being used if it fits with the advertisement.
Extremely, wildly popular and successful Disney-made star has her music used to promote Disneyland... that's a no-brainer. I'd have a bigger problem with it if Disney wasn't making obvious, smart business decisions like this.
Hey, what ever happened to the old song that they used to have, the one that they used from the 2003 remake of Peter Pan? That song always made me tear up (in a good way).
Different promotion means different music. To that end, at least Disney's using their own internal music source this time, rather than turning to Universal's music library. The Pan music used to make me a little emotional as well, but hearing it everywhere Disney was advertising pretty much killed it for me.
Hmm, I don't think I'd recognize the song (or ANY song for that matter) as something by Miley Cyrus. Maybe if she were standing in my living room singing it, and wearing a sign that says "I'm Miley Cyrus". Outside of that unlikely event, there's a good chance I wouldn't even notice.
I'm sure I'd find the song annoying, but that's what DVRs are for.
I was watching TV a couple of weeks ago, and I was so excited to see a Disneyland commercial come on. Then I heard the music for the commercial come on... it was a Miley Cyrus song. It was so furious I turned it on mute and almost started crying and I wanted so badly to take a bat to my TV.
Who in the heck agreed to have her song on there?! Just because she's on Disney Channel and had her birthday there DOES NOT mean that she has the right to have her song advertise the park! That really rubs me the wrong way. I honestly believe that she makes Disney look cheap.
