Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon? In a little town, a quiet village? Am I a man or a muppet? And what are the bare necessities of life? And finally, is this episode going to get a whole bunch of songs stuck in your head? Yes, both, and absolutely. You’re welcome.
My brother and good friend of the show, James Walters, is back on the couch this week to help me create an exhaustive list of the very best Disney songs ever. We’ve got historical context, musical backgrounds, spreadsheets, and list-making parameters galore, so buckle up! We’re about to get real nerdy about Disney music.
Of course, though we try to focus on this very important topic of the day, this is still The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are welcome. So do we touch on horror movies, Zac Efron, and school supplies? Yes, yes, we do.
