    Allright we all know that Tomorrowland 98 wasn't, well, wasn't very good. And it's aged worse. Today I noticed a new gray hair as it were. As you head past the Astro Orbiter, the area music from Club Buzz is being piped through the Observatron speakers now. I don't know why this music bugs me more now than it did before. Perhaps it's being isolated to "just a restaurant" made me somewhat forgiving of it's "Needle-droppy-Campy synthy-space-ness". But to broadcast it over a good portion of the land (and out into Outer Space? Or is the Observatron only a recieving station. Who cares...) is just lame. I walked by as that Disco version of Star Wars theme came on. It was cute when it was eating music, less so now as real area music.
    Of course the real tragedy is that the best area music, which to my mind would still sound totally appropriate (even if Tomorrowland is in the condition it is in) is the Tomorrowland 2055 loop (AKA the tomorrowland bathroom music). But it does indeed languish only in the bathrooms. The volume has been lowered in the breezeway between the HISTA exit and the Starcade, despite this area now being used for Annual Pass processing as well. What better way to start a new AP's year than by treating them to the marvelous tunes of Tomorrowland's past? Well perhaps they will have to relieve themselves before they head out into the park. We can only hope no one flushes too loudly.

    Thats interesting, because I was reading another article here the other day and I realized that Tomorrowland might be the only land in DL that doesnt HAVE area music:

    Main Street - Of course!

    Adventureland - ? I dont rememebr any

    New Orleans Square - OK, none here either but plenty of other music...

    Critter Country - Pooh might provide the music for this area now

    Frontierland - Yup

    Fantasyland - YES!....sort of...

    Toontown - YES!

    and Tomorrowland...it does now ;)

    But :( I dont understand why they cant use the superior TL2055 music, it has everything, Tomorrowland past and present...plus a new theme, this track is Nostalgia supreme...its everything Tony Baxter seems to strive for, and I would think the imagineers would want to salvage some aspect of the "much loved" TL2055 project.

    Yay for the new area music, but lets hope they do something better with it before the 50th ;)

    Ugh! I'll have to listen for it next time I'm there. If it was playing last week, I didn't notice it.

    well.....if you count the attraction que msuic as part of park background music, then you have to include

    Inoventions exterior music.....the Autopia grandstand music. In the past there relly wasn't a general loop of background music in Tomorrowland ....it has mostly been attraction and or area specific......The Space Place /Space Mountain Plaza had it's own music in the 70's done by Done Dorsy....and the Peoplemover music could always be heard around the entire land.....and Subs had it's own load music.the Monorail speedramp had it's own music in the late 60's early 70's.......even in later years Tomorrowland Terrace had it's own area music before the renovation in '98.

    someone had asked about WDW Tomorrowland BGM.........

    in the early 70's there was a "Tomorrowland entry bridge" loop.......a Skyway Station loop and by the mid 70's there was a WEDWAY level loop, a Star Jets level look........I think the WEDWAY level msuic was always kinda the general Tomorrowland BGM loop.

    I have been trying to track down the list for the Club Buzz loop as I know most of it is needledrop. So, does anyone recognize any of the songs on the loop? I recognize a few songs from what I have heard. I asked different CM's around Club Buzz if they had a listing of the loop somewhere. I was told to ask the Club Buzz show director however, she had left for the day. C'mon, let's play name that tune! The songs I recognize are:

    Club Buzz Theme

    Star Wars Disco - Stars On 45

    Planet Claire - The B-52's (from their self titled album)

    Planet Earth - Devo (from their album "Freedom Of Choice")

    While some may not like this loop, it is there.

    Just for the record, the Star Wars Disco thing is by Meco. It predates Stars on 45 by a few years.
