    Re: DCA - Buena Vista St & the Red Car News Boys

    Maybe this was for the new show coming featuring DJ from the Cars movie?

    This is how rumors get started. What you saw wasn't the News Boys rehearsal. You were watching rehearsal for opening ceremonies on June 15th.

    Now, the News Boys have been practicing before park hours with the Red Car Trolley. I've seen and heard them, and they look and sound great. The music is fantastic, and I guarantee guests will definitely enjoy this treat in the street.

    So here's what the music sounds like. I hear some techno bits, but they're very, very small touches in the overall sound, which is mostly 1920/30s jazz and swing inspired.

    this seemed more fun in concept form.

    In the parks when just walking past I'm sure it will add a lot of energy to the area. Shows like this rarely are as good on video then they are in person. I didn't care much for Minnie's Fly Girls when I watched it on YouTube but I saw it in person and really enjoyed it! In the setting it's fun! Outside of the setting, it's a little hokey... We'll see but based on how I felt about MFG and how I turned out loving that show, I have higher hopes for this one. Plus this is only a small segment of the show and doesn't include the classic Newsies songs my sisters are so excited about.

    Forget about the music.

    They need to take out that whole bit about "Maybe California will have a team of their own. Someday." Actually in 1923 baseball was very popular and in fact LA did have a professional baseball team -- the Los Angeles Angels. They were in the Pacific Coast League. So this whole part really needs to be removed.

    This actually bugs me more than the music issue. Although the arrangement being used doesn't feel right anyways.

    Re: DCA - Buena Vista St & the Red Car News Boys

    Based on the video:

    Disney - don't be afraid to seize the day, and don't be afraid to have a period show with ACTUAL PERIOD-SOUNDING MUSIC!

    (That drum machine reminds me of when a local theater company did The Music Man with synthesizers! Not the same period of music, but equally ill fitting.)

    I actually defended the use of modern music in the recent Great Gatsby trailer, but Disney - you are not Baz Luhrmann! You are not "hip" or "trendy" and you never will be! Now go get whoever did the jazz orchestrations for The Princess and the Frog soundtrack so they can fix this!!!!!

    But I am glad to see a semi-original show in the parks

    Re: DCA - Buena Vista St & the Red Car News Boys

    The two song choices were great. Love that they're using "Clap Hands"... perhaps to open the show?

    The whole techno beat however, is strange. On one hand it seems to add little umph to their vocals but on the other hand, it feels like Ethel Merman singing "There's No Business Like Show Business" to a thumping disco beat.


    And yes she did record a disco album.

    Woahhhhhh..... the electronic "oonce oonce" beat is beyond cringe-worthy.

    Fortunately, things like this are easy to modify and improve upon....unlike some attractions that D.O.A., but will be around for a while because of $$ invested.

    I see what you mean about the techno beat. It sounds like a rave, but other than that the music seems decent for the area, just get rid of the techno drum machine. The Choreography seems cool though where they are throwing the girl newsie around.

    Electro Swing is the phrase you're all looking for. See Parov Stelar.

    Judging from the comments on youtube, and the over-use of the phrase "cringe-worthy," I 'd expect some tweaks to the music.

    I can't wait for the next six months of flame wars over "breaks in theme." Oy.
    So full of Disney Magic, my eyes are blue.

    Yeah... that video was.... odd...
    And the costumes seem very unauthentic to the period too.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    This is what the show should feel like:
