  • [Fun] Favorite Park Music?

    What are some of your favorite attraction songs, or just any other song you can hear in the park? You can see them at ParkTunes - A guide to Disney theme park songs and Disney music loops!

    I REALLY LOVE Soarin' Over California, and Yo Ho A Pirates Life For me, but love everything else as well

    What soundtracks do you like?

      I like "Triplets" from Main Street USA. I enjoy the rest of the music loop as well.

        I have SO many favorites. Disneyland music constitutes one of only two genres of music that I choose to listen to with any regularity, the other being film (and television) scores. Soarin' Over California, Pirates, the Haunted Mansion, and the post-2005 Space Mountain rule the world of original ride scores at the DLR, as far as I'm concerned. In the movie-based realm, Indiana Jones and Star Tours are obligatory favorites - John Williams IS my favorite composer of all time - with Splash Mountain not terribly far behind. IASW is cute in spite of its fearsome earworm factor, the Tiki Room songs are enjoyable, the HISTA theme is surprisingly delightful, and the Matterhorn queue polka makes me smile. And if we go beyond Anaheim, I count myself as a huge fan of John Debney's work on Phantom Manor, as well. And the original DLP Space Mountain track is equal parts good fun and hilarious plagiarism.

          Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree, Agree. Disneyland does have really great music.

          I will add Screamin' to that list however as I have a strong connection to that soundtrack. Furthermore, some of DCA's attractions had great themes on the 50th CD, and I even enjoy listening to the old themes such as "miracles from molecules" and "there's a great big beautiful tomorrow" which are from attractions I never even was able to experience.

          Who could also forget music from the Fireworks, Fantasmic or the Dapper Dans? Believe can still bring tears to my eyes, and that is a sign of excellence in musical composition.

                Oh man...I kept meaning to include that in my post, but I ended up forgetting. YES! "When You Wish Upon a Star" is the quintessential anthem of Disneyness.

                  "When you wish upon the star" and "Once Upon a Dream" that King Arthur's Carousel plays tops my favorite park music list. It's even better after dark when the carousel glows and the music adds to the night time ambiance. It's mesmerizing:blush:. I find myself drawn to that area at night like a moth to a flame.

                    on the 50th you get the Once Upon a Dream" carousel version
                    It's great. Love to listen to it.
                    It just brings happiness to the soul.

                      It would be worth a fortune one day. To bad I could never sell it.

                        Zippity Doo Dah, How Do You Do?, Haunted Mansion theme, Billie Hill & the Hillbilles, it's a small world, A Pirate's Life For Me, the Disneyland Band, bar room piano coming from the saloon as the train passes through BTM town, and When you Wish Upon a Star...for me, it just wouldn't be Disneyland without them. All the music is wonderful. Like many, I'm singing for days afterward.

                          I love so much of the music at Disneyland, the Jungle Cruise loading area loop (complete with news breaks and weather announcements), Main Street USA, Ragtime Michael at Coke Corner, Farley The Fiddler in Frontierland, the banjo picker who after 40 years of practice still can't figure out how to play Camptown Races on POTC, but the one that gets me the most every year, has got to be the main street Xmas loop.

                          First Ride, The Disneyland and Santa Fe Railroad.

                            Nahh, Walt's Personal Anthem "It's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" That's what the Sherman Brothers were thinking when they wrote it.

                            <-- And I know a really good arrangement, but I never could get him to play it... I'll have to go through the Mini-Discs, I think I got it on mike once.

                            There are almost too many great musical things to mention, we'd be here all night typing up a list. And the ones that are hilarious if you realize what they are, like the Frontierland background loop - with one track being the "Blazing Saddles" opening theme...

                              I like it when Billy Hill has the sing-along and you have to finish the lyrics. And there is a doo-wop acappella group in DCA that are awesome!

                                Everything in Tomorrowland. I know I'm in Disneyland when I hear the Tomorrowland loop. <3

                                  my favorite music is... Jerry Goldsmith's "Soarin over California" theme. as well as the loading variation played while in the queue or in the esplanade.

                                  Fantasmic! of course, as well as the Fantasmic! exit music played right after the show/at the esplanade.

                                  the Monsters, Inc. theme that plays in Hollywood in CA Adventure.

                                  Maple Leaf Rag at New Orlean's Square (even though it's more fitting for Main Street)

                                    I love the music in Tomorrowland. I am very fond of all of the music in New Orleans Square.
                                    My mind often turns back to
                                    Fraggle Rock...

                                      "All I Want" (Critter Country Area Music) is one of my alll time favorite songs.
