I’m a quiet person.
I don’t mean quiet as in someone who stays to herself, which I do, but quiet as in even when I think I’m talking loud enough for someone to hear me, I still get the dreaded request of repeating myself.
So for me to participate in karaoke is kind of a big deal.
Ever since 9-year-old me saw The Little Mermaid, my mom can testify that I’ve performed countless hour-long shower recitals for not just her benefit but all the poor unfortunate souls in the area.
As you can guess, I have a soft spot for Disney.
My list of favorite songs changes as the years go by and more epic soundtracks come out.
Below is my top 15 list of Disney must-haves as of 2018.
1. Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid)
2. Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride (Lilo and Stitch)
3. Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book)
4. I’ll Make a Man Out of You (Mulan)
5. Why Should I Worry? (Oliver and Company)
6. A Whole New World (Aladdin)
7. Go the Distance (Hercules)
8. You’ll Be In My Heart (Tarzan)
9. You’re Welcome (Moana)
10. For A Moment (The Little Mermaid II)
11. Stand Out (A Goofy Movie)
12. I See The Light (Tangled)
13. Let It Go (Frozen)
14. Tale As Old As Time (Beauty and the Beast)
15. Colors of the Wind (Pocahontas)
*16. Once Upon A December (Anastasia) (Not Disney but deserves a shout out!)
Obviously, some of these movies have multiple instances of awesomeness, but I try to be fair and pick my favorite song from each one.
I’m the overgrown kid who has more plays for animated theme songs on my I-pod than today’s pop songs.
Do I know what’s hot in music these days? Not a clue.
But every word to these Disney songs? Ha! You bet your nerdy tush I do.
SO fellow nerds, forget about your worries and your strife and be our guest in these two karaoke sessions this summer.
Tuesday, June 19 from 4-6 pm
Wednesday, July 18 from 6-8 pm
(TV Theme songs for Tiny Humans)
No one will be put on the spot. We will be singing these songs as a group, so if you’re like me, stage fright won’t be issue.
Grab a free ticket at the Youth Services desk half an hour before (while they last).
Speaking of music, the library keeps a healthy collection of CDs regardless of today’s age of one-click downloads.
I grew up in the 90s and although I use my I-pod and computer often, to this day, I still use CDs in the car.
I prefer older technology especially when it comes to older titles like watching Space Jam on VHS or listening to The Backstreet Boys on CD.
Here are a couple titles for Disney lovers to check out. What can I say except you’re welcome? Ok, I’m done now.
