    Re: Is Disneyland Music too... Cheesy?

    There's a definite difference between film scores and film songs. There's also a difference between Disneyland soundtracks and Disney film soundtracks.

    ...and a difference between the quickly forgotten character-based stage shows /parades and the usually great attraction music.

    Proof: Is this cheesy? How about this? Almost sounds like an Olympics ad or something to me, but not really THAT cheesy. And yet that's just the entrance to Epcot music. IllumiNations has a lot more music like that which is very good as well.

    So I don't think it's that Disney Parks can't make good music, I think the music at DL is getting old and their sound systems are certainly stale.
    But didn't you reveal recently that in fact you haven't been to DL in a few years? Pretty strong statements in that case.

    I think you missed the point being made that it is some of the new music that seems to be annoying some people.

    Re: Is Disneyland Music too... Cheesy?

    I agree about the Parade of Dreams song... I'm not a big fan of it either. I don't have too many other complaints about the music in the park, though. I think a lot of it is superb, like the nostalgic 40s stuff played in the Jungle Cruise queue, and the background music on Main Street. But I don't think those are new at all.

    I think that music is outside material. I know some songs that are played on Main Street are from Oklahoma (not the state).

    Re: Is Disneyland Music too... Cheesy?

    I listen to Disney stuff on the 'net almost every day. I keep discovering new music that I like, such as Impressions de France and music from Illuminations from WDW, which I've never heard before because I've never been there. I also love ride soundtracks, some of the dance mixes, etc. BUT. . .there is a type of music Disney uses that I find unbearable. It's sappy, bland, and homogenized, with cliche lyrics. Some examples are Remember When, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, and Home is Where the Heart Is. In particular, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes makes me want to puke.

    Re: Is Disneyland Music too... Cheesy?

    I kinda like the Winnie the Pooh Music, but it ain't nothin im crazy for.

    1) I like the whole Golden Horseshoe track, especially the Wally Boag segments.
    2) I love the Splash Mountain track
    3) LOVE LOVE LOVE anything and everything Country Bears.
    4) I also LOVE the Club 33 Instrumental version of "Feed the Birds".

    I don't think HMH music is all that impressive though because it seems to have lost the Danny Elfman touch.

    I don't like the Tarzan track either. Heck I never even listen to it.

    Buzzy Lightyear starts out good, but then after that its boring.

    Ugh, you reminded me of Tarzan. There, now I can say that there is attraction music that drives me crazy.

    I agree. One reason is that they are both written for entirely different puropses.

    That song feels like a Celine Dion track made before there were ever Celine Dion tracks.

    I do like it as an instrumental melody, though.

    Everything Walt did was superior in quality. The music that he created was able to be sold in the mianstream and make it to the top of charts. I can't imagine PoD making a dent in the Billboard top 100...

    Cheesiness is not a requirement for Disney products. Quality is.
    I don't disagree with you in the slightest. It does not have to be cheesy. It also does not have to NOT be.

    The other term I used was "schmaltz". This being music that purposefully tugs at the heartstrings or evokes a warm fuzzy.

    My definition if cheesy is perhaps too broad. I'll narrow it down to just those schmatlzy tunes that I think are not well done.

    Tuppence a Bag comes to mind as schmaltzy. Remember is cheesy to me (over produced). IASW is boderline but has tradition going for it. Many of the parade tunes are not all bad but are so short and repetitive that it makes them cheesy.

    So to restate the initial sentence: It does not have to be schmaltzy. It also does not have to NOT be. But it shouldn't be cheesy.

    I agree, although theoratically, they shouldn't. Since Walt believed that Disneyland was like a stage production, the music should reflect that. It should always be high quality and not slopped together with child friendly lyrics that are cliche and forgettable.
