    Remember orchestration vs. Wishes

    I was listening to Remember not too long ago and shortly thereafter I put the soundtrack to Wishes on. I think the orchestration used in the very beginning of both shows are actually compeletly different. What I mean is that I think instead of just inserting Wishes music with Julie Andrews narration, that they actually re-recorded the beginning sequence. If you listen to Remember, you can hear a lot more intruments(mainly violens) in the beginning crescendo and the chimes are much louder before Julie Andrews introduction. Remember sounds crystal clear, but Wishes seems more muffled. I was thinking that they may have completely re-recorded Remember all the way through the E-Ticket segement incorporating Tink's introduction, Walt's speech, and E-Tickets in the Sky. Or it could be just some sprucing up of the audio adding in a few segments here and there and picking up on some of the undertone. Does anyone know what the hell I'm talking about?? If you have the audio for Remember and Wishes, pop both cd's in and see if you can tell for yourself the difference in clarity and intrumental crescendo at the beginning...

    Wow. So maybe Disney wasn't lazy and just used the "wishes" thing because they liked it instead of for convience? I would listen but I don't have Wishes... (yet!)

    I think you're right as I've noticed this too. However, I think it's only brand new orchestration from the introduction to the "Starlight, Starbright" part. It seems like this version has more violons/violas in it and I actually like it more than the Wishes one. The other parts (The Character Wishes/WYWUAS and the Finale) seem like exact copies to me. They had to make a new intro though because Julie speaks MUCH longer than the Blue Fairy does in the intro to Wishes.

    Heheh, I love when Evil Minion whispers those lyrics in my ear during the fireworks. Fortunately, not having seen 'Wishes' at DisneyWorld, the music did not first strike me as a rip-off of another show. But I do think it's tacky not to have composed something original for the big 50th Anniversary Fireworks Spectacular.

    (Of course, I should be careful what I wish for. Wishes ain't a bad piece of music, and who knows what drek they might have come up with if they tried to write something new.)

    You could probably look out your window and sync it with what you see That would be sweet.

    They had fireworks here in Hawaii on the ocean... I had my iPod. I listened to Remember's soundtrack during them. Amazingly enough, it worked pretty darn well... though it was 5 min short. (The fireworks)

    And in the show here, they had all the types of fireworks that Remember has, and other ones as well. The flowers, the stars, the hearts, every firework was going off here.

    I always have thought that Disney should do the 4th of July fireworks for other places in the country... Imagine seeing Reflections of Earth on the lake in Chicago.

    slightly off topic.....but I don't like WISHES. Believe (and Remember) are both so much better.

    If they went through the trouble of redoing the soundtrack, why couldn't they redo Snow White's creepy voice? She sounds kinda high in the soundtrack...I like the Wishes music, but it is VERY poorly written. Do you think they could insert a form of the word "wish" into that soundtrack one more time? They use it at least 200 times...looks like Steve Davison may need a thesaurus for Christmas this year...and Snow White needs to make a New Years Resolution to remain sober...
