    Loop runs 53:08.

    The loop can be heard along Main Street USA, including in the central hub. It has been extremely difficult tracking down information regarding the music used prior to 1992. Wedroy1923 has done a fair amount of research on this topic, but without having reference recordings of the early loops, it's difficult to reach any accurate conclusions. The early loops, which were compiled by Jack Wagner, were most likely sourced from commercially available material.

    To date, it appears there have been four versions of the MSUSA loop, with two versions since 1992. In 1992, a 60:22 version was installed which is the same as the playlist below, but with the Summer Magic Medley (Flitterin'/Summer Magic/Beautiful Beulah/I Could Love A Million Girls) used after Mary Is A Grand Old Name. All of the tracks used in the Summer Magic Medley were released on WDWF and the medley runs ~7:19. It is not known when the Summer Magic Medley was removed.

    There is a reconstruction of the general loop in circulation that was compiled from a few different sources. From what I remember, the tracks were accurate, but the edits and fades were not. If you can, track down the 60:22 file.
