    Does anyone know which version of Kiss the Girl is used in the loop at Ariel's Grotto. I made a live recording of this loop cause I was under the impression that it was made up of just pieces from the soundtrack. All except for "Under the Sea" were from the CD. The version used is not familiar to me at all. I know it's not the version that plays in the Esplenade between the parks (and I believe played at WDW before that). My only other thought if it's at all commercially available is that it may be from the Manheim Steamroller Meets the Mouse album, because it sounded very much in their style, though I haven't checked out that album yet to confirm if that song is even on there. Does anyone have any other ideas? The piece in question is a very jazzy rendition, and doesn't even fit the area particularly well.

    No I haven't ruled it out yet. I have to go and listen to my live recording again. I'll keep you guys posted.

    Could you upload your live recording to the newsgroup?
    I can't visit DL easily but can help you out by listening to the recording.

    I've never been able to do the newsgroup thing. Don't worry though you wouldn't want this live recording. The speakers around Ariels Grotto are all but impossible to get close to unless you are waiting in line to Meet Ariel. I had to just set my recorder on the ground about 2 feet from the nearest speaker, meanwhile trying not to look to suspicious to the 47 mothers waiting in line with their little girls. No doubt they thought I was stalking Ariel for the 20 minutes that I was there. Anyway this recording is barely listenable, and just for reference purposes. Sorry

    OK, I just went back and read my first post. It's a bit confusing. The piece in question is Kiss the Girl. I was confused for a bit, trying to research this from memory, and I was under the impression that the song I was looking for was Under the Sea, which is on the Manheim Steamroller album.

    Anyway, it IS NOT the selection from the TDS Mermaid Lagoon CD and the loop precedes the opening of TDS. Like I said it sounds very out of place, though jazzy isn't the right term to describe it. Syntho-Calypso maybe to coin a phrase.

    I'll at least post a playlist once I get times figured out.

    I've checked out a couple obscure versions of "Kiss the Girl" that I had on various albums (including the TDS CD) and they don't match. What's really wierd is that the version used sounds like it starts with a few bars of Zip a Dee Doo Dah. This leads me to believe that it could have been pulled from a larger loop. The search continues.
