Hello all. With some encouragement from Horizons, I'll be trying to expand our coverage of the music of Disney West, the Disneyland Resort. In much the same way as he does, I'll be attempting to provide accurate listings and information about the music that plays at the resort. So let's begin with a listing of the current Disneyland Esplanade Christmas Music Loop. This list was compiled from a reference recording made by CThaddeus of Rodentsections and expands upon work done by him and also by Tongoroa (you can view those posts here). The loop runs 31:58. 1. Fanfare and Clock Parade (from the It's a Small World Holiday Official Soundtrack) (1:29) 2. It's a Small World Holiday Medley (edited from the It's a Small World Holiday Official Soundtrack) (3:25) 3. Holly Jolly Christmas (2:32) 4. Santa Claus is Coming to Town (2:47) 5. Haunted Mansion Holiday - Graveyard (edited from the Haunted Mansion Holiday Official Soundtrack, starts at 11:22) (3:00) 6. Over the Graveyard (from the Haunted Mansion Holiday Official Soundtrack) (1:40) 7. Two Step Medley (from the album Cowboy Christmas by Michael Martin Murphey) (1:58) 8. A Christmas Fantasy Parade - Opening Unit (2:42) 9. Sleigh Ride (2:50) 10. Silver Bells (1:42) 11. Little Saint Nick (The Beach Boys) (2:02) 12. Winter Wonderland (from the CD Ho! Ho! Hoey! II, by Gary Hoey) (2:56) 13. The Bells of Christmas (edited from The Santa Clause OST, starts at 1:06) (1:14) 14. Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams - Finale Unit (2:25) Times for needledrop tracks are the times of the tracks as they appear on their releases. Tracks in the loop sometimes play over the ending of the previous track, and thus the exact times of the tracks as heard in the loop may be slightly different. Times for unidentified tracks are as heard in the loop. Track 2, It's a Small World Holiday Medley, is not the same as the 1:55 medley track that has circulated. It is longer and features more of the It's a Small World Theme. A reconstruction of the medley can be made from the official ridethrough. The sources of tracks 3, 4, 9 and 10 are unknown. It has been speculated that tracks 3 and 4 may be from the Frontierland and/or New Orleans Square Christmas loops. Thus they may have been recorded for in-park holiday loops and may not be commercially available. It has been speculated that track 9, Sleigh Ride, is from the Disneyland Main Street Christmas Music Loop. It is not. In fact, no version of Sleigh Ride plays in the Main Street Loop. Track 10, Silver Bells, is also not from the Main Street Christmas Loop, though a different version of that song does play in that loop. More to come!
