Of course it's cheesey. It was started by a mouse!
Ok... so, I hate 99% of the parade music. Especially the Mickey Mania parade. I'm glad we never have to bump the bump ever again.
My list of good parade music:
Main Street Electrical Parade (except for the pre-1976 soundtrack -- got too groovy near the end)
Tapestry of Nations
Light Magic (expcept for the vocal parts... I just like the celtic renditions of the classic tunes, especially the Baroque Hoedown parts)
SpectroMagic (It took a while for this to grow on me, though)
And that's about it.
For good post-Walt attraction music...
Hmm... anything that the Walt-era people did was good, just about. But that's mostly early Epcot where we get such songs as "Fiesta en México" and the wonderful soundtrack for "Impressiones de France." And also the attractions that was brought out with the opening of the Magic Kingdom.
I prefer the Dick Dale soundtrack for Space Mountain, but I'm also a bit of a Dick Dale fan -- and surf rock in general.
I love the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter soundtrack.
I'm not much of a fan for the slow ballads and folk music that they did so much in the 80s for Epcot.
Other than that, there's not much in attraction music that I hate. It's mostly the shows and parades where I start having problems listening to the music. That's where things get too cheesy, too perky, and try too hard to make us embrace the magic.
For the record, I'm not a fan of the Fantasmic song.
