  • [Fun] Favorite ride music

    Because this poll allows only 10 choices, I had to cut the list down to only current attractions. If your favorite is from a discontinued attraction, such as "Miracles from Molecules" (Adventure thru Inner Space), There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" (Carousel of Progress) or the Rainbow Caverns music, please click "Other" and reply with your choice.

    Space Mountain.

    I love the classics "A Pirates Life For Me" and "Grim Grinning Ghosts" but the orchestration and sync of the new SM track is BLOODY FANTASTIC. Michael Giacchino is one of my favorite composers, and it started for me with this track.

    and look at microscopic germs,
    but technicolor pachyderms
    are really too much for me."

      Maybe you it wasn't able to be listed, but I still have to go with Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow. After one showing I had it memorized and still know it by heart.
      I also used to love the 'Herb Alpert/Burt Bacharach sounding People Mover music as well as the old Monorail music.

          I would definitely say Grim Grinning Ghosts. It amazes me how well the entire ride's soundtrack is executed, thanks to the genius of Buddy Baker. His use of the song being used as a cue throughout the attaction, but done in a different mood, and at the same length of time, is fantastic and keeps the whole attraction in sync musically. Not to mention all the fun and kooky variations that Thurl, Bill Lee, Loulie Jean Norman, et all have with the song in the graveyard, as well as X.'s fun lyrics. To me, the HM is one of those rare rides where the music both blends seamlessly with the experience of its visuals, but at the same time, is one of the main key ingredients for the ride's success.

                For me it was a tie between HM and Pirates..but I choose HM just cause I love how it starts off creepy and then it goes into plain silliness..

                  Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean.

                  YO HO (A PIRATE'S LIFE FOR ME)
                  Lyrics by Xavier Atencio and music by George BrunsYo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.

                  Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
                  We pillage plunder, we rifle and loot.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.

                  Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
                  We extort and pilfer, we filch and sack.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  Maraud and embezzle and even highjack.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.

                  Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.
                  We kindle and char and in flame and ignite.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  We burn up the city, we're really a fright.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.

                  We're rascals and scoundrels, we're villians and knaves.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  We're devils and black sheep, we're really bad eggs.
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.

                  We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do-well cads,
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads,
                  Drink up me 'earties, yo ho.
                  Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me.

                  The Haunted Mansion

                  Grim Grinning Ghosts
                  Music by Buddy Baker and lyrics by F. Xavier Atencio

                  When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake
                  Spooks come out for a swinging' wake
                  Happy haunts materialize, and begin to vocalize,
                  Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize

                  Now don't close your eyes and don't try to hide
                  Or a silly spook may sit by your side
                  Shrouded in a daft disguise, they pretend to terrorize,
                  Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize

                  As the moon climbs high o'er the dead oak tree
                  Spooks come out for the midnight spree
                  Creepy creeps with eerie eyes, start to shriek and harmonize
                  Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize!

                  When you hear the knell of a requiem bell
                  Weird glows gleam where spirits dwell
                  Restless bones eptherialize, rise as spooks of every size
                  (maniacal laughter)

                  If you would like to join our jamboree
                  There's a simple rule that's compulsory:
                  Mortals pay a token fee, rest in peace, the hauntings free,
                  So hurry back, we would like your company!

                      Tough choice, as most are great, but I went with Grim Grinning Ghosts. I can listen to that any time of the day.

                        For me, it's a tie between Pirates Life for Me and Grim Grinning Ghosts. I like Pirates better than Haunted Mansion, but both songs are equally great and both very catchy. One time I even had a dream where Pirates Life for Me was stuck in my head. lol!

                                  I voted for Indy, however I love pretty much all of those songs.

                                    First of all, there's only 1 ride in DL.

                                    Now if your asking about attractions, I'm going with Snow White's wishing well.

                                        I just love the music on HM!! There is something about it that is so entrancing. I also enjoy the mix once the layover is complete.
