Songs written for Disney productions since the 1930s to the present day have become a potent part of American popular culture. Since most Americans first discovered these songs in their youth, the songs have a special place in one's consciousness. Songwriters and original singers are identified, as well as the source of the song and other venues in which it has been used over the years. This volume also contains a glossary of song terms, a songwriter's directory, a guide to recordings and DVDs of Disney productions, and a listing of Academy Award nominees and winners.

About the Author:

Thomas S. Hischak is the author of twenty-two books on popular music, theatre, and film, including such titles as Theatre as Human Action and Through the Screen Door: What Happened to the Broadway Musical When It Went to Hollywood. He is professor of theatre at the State University of New York College at Cortland. He is also the author of twenty-three published plays.

Mark A. Robinson is a longtime Disney fan who has directed plays and musicals and taught theatre and film in various high schools in Nebraska and New York State. He is the author of Encyclopedia of Television Theme Songs, and has also published poetry. Robinson graduated from the State University of New York at Cortland with a B.A. in theatre.

From Booklist:

Since the release of its first “talkie,” Steamboat Willie, Disney Studios has used music as an important element in its productions, to emphasize or to advance story lines. This impressive volume describes more than 900 songs written for Disney movies, videos, musicals, television shows, recordings, and theme parks. Authors Hischak and Robinson define Disney songs as works written specifically for Disney productions. Their “Brief History of Disney Music” is followed by paragraph-length A–Z entries that discuss each song’s mood and style, indicate which character(s) perform the song, give the date of the production, and describe what is happening while the song is performed. Many of the songs listed are relatively unknown, having been written for short-lived TV series or home videos with limited target audiences, but for hard-core Disney fans, each page turn might bring another “ear worm” recalling images of singing critters and happy endings. Nearly one-quarter of the volume consists of appendixes offering alternate song titles, lists of songs arranged by songwriters and by source, a guide to recordings and videos/DVDs, Academy Award–winning Disney songs and scores, and a glossary of song terms. Although there are other Disney reference books, such as Disney A–Z (3d ed., 2006), and many Disney music songbooks, no other volume offers a comprehensive list or description of Disney songs. Recommended for large performing arts collections. --Steven York
