    Disney-Dolly-Wall*E: Music On Main Street

    Have you heard Wall-E on Main St?

    Ok, probably not the character (yet), but you have certainly heard a signature song from the movie being played in constant rotation as you 'walk right down the middle of Main St. USA'.

    And if you are a Disney Park fanatic you probably would have recoqnized it immediately.

    That song is a classic tune from the musical "Hello Dolly" entitled "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" and it has long been a part of the BGM (background music) that still plays throughout the day in the Magic Kingdom.

    For my part, even though it was never intended to do so, that song has always represented WDW to me thanks to it's simple association with one of my most favorite places on earth.

    So the question of the day is, are there any other songs out there which do now, and will forever more, immediately take you to that Disney place in your mind?

    Question... is the song played in the style that fits turn of the century Main Street? Reason why I ask is because lately I have been listening to boombox music played on Main Street during those "Pactivities" they do for the kids before the parade comes down..

    It is in the turn of the century Main Steet style similar to that which you hear when they play the song "Fortuosity".

    My pleasure ... There is actually a clip of it at Amazon.com that you can listen to here: http://www.amazon.com/Put-On-Your-Su...41150&sr=102-7
    Please note that this sample has the vocals included.
    As you know with all the BGM's at the MK they only play the music but hopefully you'll at least get the idea of the music and how it sounds in the park.

    Thanks for the clip, but now that I know what song we are talking about.. as far as I know this music has been playing on Main Street for a rather long long time, way before the Wally movie came out.

    Yeah that and the Disneyland Carousel horse were cameos of Disney theme parks in the film Wall-E... for me at least. I too related when I heard that Hello Dolly song because I immediately thought of WDW and Main Street but I am use to the instrumental version rather heard on MS.

    There's another song that I heard recently from yet another musical on Main Street in instrumental form. It's "Many A New Day" from the musical Oklahoma. I saw that movie recently it was like a "oh my god, that's the Main Street music" moment.

    Re: Disney-Dolly-Wall-E: Music On Main Street

    "Elegance", "Before the Parade Passes By", "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" (Hello, Dolly!)

    "Fortuosity", "Let's Have a Drink on It" (The Happiest Millionaire)

    "Surrey With the Fringe On Top", "Many a New Day", "Kansas City" (Oklahoma!)

    "Flitterin'", "Summer Magic", "Beautiful Beulah" [aka "Railroad Rag"] (Summer Magic)

    "Gary Indiana", "The Wells Fargo Wagon", "Lyda Rose / Will I Tell You?", "Iowa Stubborn" (The Music Man)

    The above songs are the ones from actual musicals used in the Main Street BGM loop at WDW, DLR and DLP. However because I love the film version of Dolly! so much (despite Streisand and the song "Love is Only Love"), that's what made me love the opening and scenes in Wall-E. "Maple Leaf Rag", "Ta-Ra-Ra Boom-De-Ay", "Bird in a Gilded Cage" and basically any other song from the 1890s act of America Sings reminds me of Main Street.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?
