    Non-Disney Music at DL

    Were you aware that the music played in the Primeval World section of DLRR is not Disney music? It's actually the theme music from the 1961 movie Mysterious Island from Columbia Pictures, and it features the great special effects work of Ray Harryhausen. I know because I've seen this movie about twenty-five times on TV.

    As for other non-Disney music, there is some played at DCA, including The Beach Boys and the Mamas and the Papas (California Dreamin' of course).

    Is there any more non-Disney music at the parks?

    Star Wars and Indiana Jones theme songs for a start LOL. Both scores are by John Williams.

    Star Tours and Indiana Jones come to mind. [EDIT: Beaten to the punch!] Oh, and there's the twisted version of Wagner's bridal march in the Haunted Mansion.

    Outside Soarin' and I believe in it's queue, they play several different selections from aviation or military-themed movies. Gustav Holst's "The Planets" re-worked for "The Right Stuff" comes to mind as well as the theme from "Patton".

    Some of the songs on the Main Street loop isn't Disney. I actually bought one on iTunes!

    Re: Non-Disney Music at DL

    While some of Autopia's queue music was written for the Peoplemover, there are other pieces mixed in that appear to be non-Disney. I heard one of them on TV, but it wasn't on a Disney-owned network. Also, Ferde Grofé's “On The Trail” can be heard in the Grand Canyon Diorama.

    An excerpt from Aaron Copland's "Hoedown" from "Rodeo." I believe it's considered classical music (it's actually a ballet).

    I consider myself an Aaron Copland expert, haha, and he's actually played a lot at Frontierland. The soundtrack at WDW's Wilderness Lodge also features a lot him. And Copland is definitely a "classical" composer - he was also one of the United States' finest, developing a style of music that would come to be seen as the "American" style, inspiring the type of music you hear in Westerns and, yes, Frontierland.

    Sorry, back on topic...

    Don't forget all the jazz played on the loop at New Orleans Square.
    Both the Mark Twain and Columbia also feature lots of non-Disney music as does the loop at Big Thunder ranch.
    The Village Hause and Plaza Inn each have distinctive loops featuring non-Disney music.
    Nemo these days likewise uses some non-Disney music at the end of he voyage.
    Up in Toon Town I can hear other non Disney music while waiting on the line at Gadget's Go Coaster with my daughter, such as Mrs. O'Leary's Cow.
    Seasonally, the Xmas loop on Main Street (the regular loop was already cited).
    The boathouse at The Jungle Cruise when you can hear it, as well the music you hear in line at Indy are both chock filled with non Disney music.

    Well, that music circles back to Disney now because it also has Put on your Sunday clothes from Hello Dolly. Which is now in Wall-E. Oh, it's the circle of liiiiiiife.

    I raise my Kitties right.... they only watch the finest shows.

    The Nightmare in the Sky fireworks display ends with "I Put a Spell On You" (which was in Hocus Pocus, but has been in countless other movies - it was originally recorded by "Screamin' Jay Hawkins")
