I've seen many posts throughout my Micechat years regarding the song to iasw and how it annoys people how it gets "stuck in their head" all day long.
A thought came into my head this morning. What if iasw never was a Disneyland attraction? What if It's A Small World was strictly a popular song and had absolutely no relation to Disneyland or even with Walt Disney for that matter?
If this were the case do you think these people would find still find this song to be annoying?
In my opinion, It's A Small World is a great piece of music. Structured similarly to the "Ode To Joy" from Beethoven's 9th Symphony, it expresses its theme simply yet eloquently. I think many people like this song for what it is. But I also think many people do not like it because it is paired with the attraction at Disneyland and maybe it is the attraction itself that causes some people to not appreciate the song as much as they normally would.
So what do you think? Does iasw the attraction diminish any beauty that iasw the song may have?
