Euro Disney

A Spotify Playlist of Foreign Juvenilia

If you've yet to catch the Spotify bug this playlist might intrigue you enough to see what all the fuss is about.

I'm not quite sure how I came across the Danish version of Heigh-Ho but it led me to look up more European soundtracks to Disney films on Spotify.

Listening to Heigh-Ho you're left in no doubt that those dwarves are working like dogs in that mine; the Italian version of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo sounds like it's from a Fellini film rather than Cinderella and there's something quite menacing about the Jungle Book's Elephant March when sung in German.

and what's really weird is how you get some of the original voices left on the spanish 'i want to be like you'.

Hi, Nigel - Sorry to say, Spotify is not available yet here in the USA - looks interesting. I'll see if I can find any of those versions elsewhere.

I'm going through a real Disney phase at the moment, whilst at the same time trying to resist being overwhelmed by music sites.

You're making life very difficult for me here you know...
