Back then, I felt it was almost like cheating to have a drum. Homo habilis, maybe? As it is, things turned out O. He has managed, over nearly half a century, to find major record labels more than happy to subsidize him he is currently with Nonesuch, a division of Warner Bros. Tom Newman, too, is a big-deal film composer, a time Oscar nominee who has collaborated regularly with Steven Soderbergh, Andrew Stanton, and Sam Mendes. And James Cameron was going down there, in a bathysphere, to stop me from lowering the bar any lower.
I asked Newman if he was wounded by the parody. Those guys are either fans of mine or they want the government to investigate me. Nevertheless, Newman grants that he has led something of a charmed life, even if the albums he puts out under his own name achieve only bijou sales. Elvis Costello, in a telephone interview, went further than merely affirming that Newman is good, acknowledging a significant artistic debt.
Lenny, born in , was two years older than Randy, but the two boys were best buddies more or less from the nursery onward. In those days, before Pro Tools, click tracks, and little video monitors, the sight of movie music being made was a majestic thing to behold: Al Newman on the podium, arms waving, eyes trained on a giant screen before him, watching a projection of a work print of the newest Fox movie— All About Eve, perhaps, or The Robe —while an piece orchestra faced him, following his cues.
The boys sat right on the soundstage, in chairs some distance from the musicians. It screwed me up—it still does. It all had a major impact on me. And, certainly, on Randy. There would be no such fate for Randy. The musical Newmans are as storied an Old Hollywood family as the Goldwyns, Warners, or Zanucks, if less recognized as such. As is often the case where Old Hollywood is concerned, the roots lie in the shtetl. Michael and Luba, who actually met in the U. Alfred, born to Luba when she was 17, was recognized early on as a piano prodigy.
The talkies were starting, and here was Hollywood waiting for people to come from New York who had the training, who could do music with a sense of dramatic context. The fanfare has since been re-recorded several times—twice under the baton of his son David Newman. Emil and Lionel followed Alfred into movie music, while another brother, Marc, became an agent specializing in the representation of film composers, and still another, Robert, known as Bobby, was a film-production executive, working for Goldwyn and Howard Hughes, among others. This won them the dingo dollars. However, the celebrities got the question wrong so they didn't receive any chocolate brownies.

This gave them time alone to discuss their views about the other celebrities. The celebrities in the hot-tub also spoke about how being on the show had affected their life so far.

Parts of the movie, sometimes listed as Melody Adventures in Music , were used in the film 3D Jamboree that was shown at the Fantasyland Theater in Disneyland.

It was part of a planned series of movie shorts about music, but only one other one, Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom , was made. During the musical sequence, Donald Duck and his parrot pal Joe Carioca, reunited from The Three Caballeros , dance and frolic while a live-action Ethel Smith plays the organ.

The nonsense lyric repeats itself and the accompaniment is mostly hyperactive drumming. Young lovers Joe Carder John Davidson and Alice Bower Lesley Ann Warren agree that they have put off talking about and expressing the love they have only written about to each other in letters. In a bucolic setting in the hills of Dakota, the two declare their love in the fervent but lighthearted song.
Joe and Alice reprise the number briefly at the end of the movie. Louis Armstrong made a vivacious recording of the song. Kevin Quinn and Randy Petersen wrote the number about how everyone needs a best friend and a dog is the ideal friend. It was used throughout the film as a kind of leitmotif.

They are self-empowered girls now and are not waiting for any prince; they vow to rescue themselves from any dragons that appear. An early concept in the film had Cinderella, after being promised she could go to the ball if her chores are done, imagining herself multiplying into several girls in order to get the work completed.
The frantic, repetitive melody evokes the circles Cinderella is going in and the lyric is a tongue twister of addition and multiplication as the heroine imagines transforming from one scullery maid into a regiment of housekeepers.

She reprises the number a bit later in the film, reminding Angie of his dream, and the two of them sing parts of the song again when they decide to elope and go to Detroit.

Friedman wrote the catchy, silly number, using the vocal background sounds Lebo M and Johnny Clegg created for the original The Lion King The kitten Ambrose, who likes to pretend to be a Wild West outlaw, runs away from home at bath time and meets the real bandit Dirty Bill voice of Billy Bletcher. When Ambrose asks Bill if he ever bathes, the outlaw answers with this merry ditty, a pledge to remain forever unwashed, and Ambrose joins in singing the number.

The song consists of jokes with no meaning, sing-along sections, and high-flying yodeling.

Roo later reprises the song, at a slower tempo, as he sits in bed and makes an Easter card for Rabbit.
