Disney Melodies - A Musician Shares His Thoughts On the Magic of Disney Music

Availability: Ready to download

What is it about Disney music that has me so glued to it? How do they do it? What kind of acoustical science must they be using to draw people in like the Pied Piper’s rats? After all, this is Disney we are talking about.

How do they do it? What kind of acoustical science must they be using to draw people in like the Pied Piper’s rats? After all, this is Disney we are talking about. It is simply not possible that the music of Disney would just be carelessly recorded and mixed without some vast marketing philosophy to control its existence. There has to be some sort of unwritten conspiracy behind each composition. There must be some sort of formula that infuses each song with a powerful magnet, giving it the ability to move people in one direction or another, convince them to buy something, or control their moods during the day. After all, Disney marketing created the most recognizable icon in the world with three simple circles (right up there with the Coca Cola scripted letters). A company with that level of branding ability is going to study the effects music has on its customers. This book is a result of a long musical study. I must admit that I have spent far too long on the entire project, but I also know it is one of those things that will possibly never end. On the other hand, I am excited about what I can share with the reader right now regarding the ingredients in a Disney song (and many other songs) that keep people listening. The book will be covering music (and sound effects) in Disney Theme Parks and Resorts, along with overviews of the famous Disney film and television music that one would expect to be included in a study such as this.

    This book was provided to me through a Goodreads giveaway. Thank you to Karl Beaudry, the publisher, and Goodreads for giving me the opportunity to read it. This is my honest review. No compensation was given. What you need to know about me: I LOVE all things Disney, and I own a surprising amount of movie soundtracks. This book was right up my alley, although I think it might have been a little more interesting for a musician than someone like me who just had two years of band in high school and This book was provided to me through a Goodreads giveaway. Thank you to Karl Beaudry, the publisher, and Goodreads for giving me the opportunity to read it. This is my honest review. No compensation was given. What you need to know about me: I LOVE all things Disney, and I own a surprising amount of movie soundtracks. This book was right up my alley, although I think it might have been a little more interesting for a musician than someone like me who just had two years of band in high school and is pretty tone deaf. There is a glossary in the back with definitions, but it really was not much of a help to me. But thankfully, you don't need to have much music knowledge to enjoy this book. All you really need is an appreciation of music and Disney. This book has sections that discuss the uniqueness of Disney music,overviews of the composers that helped create Disney music, and the great Disney songs that have stood the test of time or made an impact on the Disney legend. Overall, this was an interesting and fun read, but I don't think I really learned anything. I finished the book with "Grim Grinning Ghosts" stuck on repeat in my head.

    Mr. Beaudry is a huge Disney fan and a little obsessed with Disney music. This is an in depth study of Disney music and how it works in movies, television and the theme parks. What makes music qualified to be "Disney"? You will find out within the pages of this book. There is a section on Disney composers which I found very interesting. Does anyone remember the Sherman brothers and the movie Mary Poppins?

There is a section on Disney composers which I found very interesting. Does anyone remember the Sherman brothers and the movie Mary Poppins? Did Walt Disney know what the country needed at the country needed to see and hear at the time? Karl lists many songs and movies lean toward that theory. Beaudry tells us Disney music is consistent, uplifting, and fun. It sings quality. Make sure to read the chapter "Magical Musical Highlights". Reminisce and enjoy! This book was won on Goodreads with the request for an honest review.

    I won this book as a Goodreads First Read. I enjoyed the book and found it fascinating. I learned a great deal about Disney music that I did not know before reading this book. Definitely would recommend.
