  • [Chat] What is your favorite Disneyland soundtrack song?

    Old attraction? Background music? Announcement?

    My favorite soundtrack song is There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow/Progress City, while my favorite announcement is a main gate announcement from 1956. It's funny to hear that discounted admission used to be offered to clergymen!

    I've always been partial to anything thats Haunted Mansion related (including SFX and background music). It always recaptures a sense of modern nostalgia, considering I'm always pining for it, yet have the option to go whenever I want.

    Around the holidays, I love listening to the Main Street music loop that plays. While I like most of them, the nighttime one feels especially magical.

      I know I enjoy the Main St music. There are songs played that many don't know what they are but there are from some of my favorite movies (Summer Magic and Oklahoma). I will quietly singalong with them. Whenever I hear the "Remain seated please" at the Matterhorn, I can't help but think of the Tragic Kindgom song.

      LOL about the main gate announcement.
      A crowded day at Disneyland beats a busy day of housework!!

      According to my princess, its not Star Wars land its "You stole my goats away from me!!......in progress land"

        Splash Mountain's music always cheers me when it comes up on my playlist. Hearing just the instrumental zip a dee doo dah takes me into a deep Disneyland state. For some reason, I have more memories with that ride than any other...

        I love the IASW music with the ticking clock and love when it chimes on the half hour. It is whimsical and also reminds me of Cinderella. Also functional!

        My favorite announcement is or was the previous Matterhorn "remain seated please..." spiel. Honorary mention: I love the way the IASW voice says "disembark". Yes; just that word in specific.

          I am a big fan of the Main Street holiday loop. I made a playlist of that, the fireworks, HMH, and a Christmas Fantasy. It was like the perfect Disneyland holiday.

            I love the music from the Main Street loop, It's A Small World (both pre-show and inside the attraction), Enchanted Tiki Room (both pre-show and inside the attraction), Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion.

              All of the above! I also have a soft spot for the music played in the Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln.

                  Oh, man. I totally forgot about that one. Whenever I think about my childhood at Disneyland, the Main Street Electrical Parade comes to mind.

                    The Yoho song on Pirates.

                    Of course once I hear it, it's several days before something replaces it......lol.

                      Grim Grinning Ghosts all the way.

                      Or, in list form:

                      1. Grim Grinning Ghosts - Graveyard Jamboree version.
                      2. Grim Grinning Ghosts - Foyer version.
                      3. Grim Grinning Ghosts - Ballroom organ version.

                      Favorite Classic Announcement:
                      "Soon you'll be dashing down the slopes of majestic Matterhorn Mountain." I love the alliteration and the fact that when I heard it I'd soon be dashing down the slopes of majestic Matterhorn Mountain.

                                I like to listen to Soarin' or Indy while I'm just driving around town. It makes running mundane errands feel like a big adventure.

                                At work I like to listen to the Grizzly Peak Airfield loop. A little calm enjoyment in times of stress.

                                  Oddly enough, as I read everyone's posts, I could hear music. The background loops never fully register as I walk through the park, I just catch myself humming along. Music that pops into my head while im driving would be Zippity Do Da, and Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.
                                  The announcement that always tells me I'm at Disneyland booms from the Main Street station. "Your attention please. The Disneyland Limited is now arriving from a trip around Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom. Passengers will stand by to board." Thurl Ravenscroft sends a chill down my spine.
                                  Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

                                    I'll do my best for a top 5:

                                    1) Holiday Main Street Music - Found a video on youtube with the loop this past summer and still listen to it at least once a week.

                                    2) Paint the Night Parade - The song is just awesome.

                                    3) The music playing outside the Holiday Haunted Mansion.

                                    4) Soaring around California/the World

                                    5) Tie between Splash Mountain and Pirates

                                      1) All of the music in PoC. The Martin Denny-esque queue music does so much to enhance the atmosphere.
                                      2) All of the Haunted Mansion music, including the creepy doom buggy queue music with bells (as a kid that was a soundtrack to my Disney dreams)
                                      3) Splash Mountain music
                                      4) Alice in Wonderland ride soundtrack
                                      5) Matterhorn area music

                                        It's hard for me to separate the songs with how much I like the attraction. I love Yo Ho Yo Ho, but that's mostly because I love Pirates so much.

                                        On song alone, I might have to go with Grim Grinning Ghosts because I love how its the same basic melody that follows you throughout the entire attraction. I love how it starts with the dirge in the stretching room, evolves into a waltz in the ballroom, and culminates into the swinging wake in the graveyard.

                                        Paint the Night always gets the party started at my house. There have been many a living room dance party started with my girls over that song.
