My (Secret) Love Of Disney Songs

“You’re dead if you aim only for kids.

Adults are only kids grown up, anyway”

[ Walt Disney ]





Yes, I admit it: I’m one of those people. Those people who are constantly humming or singing to themselves. In public.

I guess it’s not as horrid for me as it is for people who happen to be out with me. I’ve experienced more than my share of elbow jabs to my ribs. And although I’m a snob when it comes to music, I have a never-dying love of Disney songs. I’m sure there’s a childhood trauma hidden somewhere in the abyss of my soul responsible for this bubble-gum-puppy-love, but in some respects I feel it’s a small price to pay. Well, at least for me it is.

So since I make everyone around me suffer this gooey obsession right along with me, why should you be exempt?! Let me introduce you to my favorite musical Disney heart breaks – Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Bo:

So be afraid.

Be very afraid.

“I was happy but happy is an adult word.

You don’t have to ask a child about happy, you see it.

They are or they are not.

Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not.

Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind.

Much easier to let it blow all over you.”

[ Jeanette Winterson ]

“How true Daddy’s words were when he said:

>All children must look after their own upbringing.<


Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths,

but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.”


[ Anne Frank The Diary of a Young Girl ]
