Hello:

Since I've already posted the France loop I'm trying to develop an accurate playlist for, I wanted to also post the information I've come up with for the World Showcase Plaza / International Gateway loop. All of this is in hopes that someone else will be able to contribute to IDing these tracks as well.

This is based on the induction recording in general circulation:

01. Unknown (Mexico)
02. Unknown (China)
03. Schubert's Serenade
04. Carmela
05. Tenting Tonight on the Old Campground
06. Roku Dan
07. La Vie en Rose
08. Shall I Sue?
09. Marie Claire
10. Unknown (Mexico)
11. Unknown (China)
12. Unknown (Germany)
13. I Tuoi Capelli Neri
14. Molly Malone
15. Unknown (Japan)
16. L'Amour Toujours L'Amour
17. Fairest Isle
18. Un Canadien Errant
19. Unknown (Mexico)
20. Unknown (China)
21. Two Hearts in Three-Quarter Time
22. O Marinariello

For futher information on this loop, please check out this thread: http://www.magicmusic.net/discuss/index.php?topic=1752.0

Does anyone know who recorded this loop? I may have missed it in my reading in the discussion board archives.

As always, any additional information, corrections, or help with this playlist is appreciated.

Re: World Showcase Plaza - BGM

Don't know for sure who recorded it, but epiphanynj would be my guess.

I've been working on a World Showcase Plaza / International Gateway playlist for years now, and I still have a few unknowns, so I thought it was time to bring the list back up. Since the last time I posted a playlist, I have made some additions and corrections. (I've listed the country where there is an unknown.)

Can anybody fill in any unknowns?

01. Mexico
02. China
03. Two Hearts in Three-Quarter Time
04. Tesoro Mio
05. Tenting Tonight on the Old Campground
06. Roku Dan
07. La Vie en Rose
08. Shall I Sue?
09. Marie Claire
10. Mexico
11. China
12. Brahms' Wiegenlied
13. Musica Proibita
14. Molly Malone
15. Japan
16. L'Amour Toujours L'Amour
17. Fairest Isle
18. Un Canadien Errant
19. La Zandunga
20. Xi Xiang Feng (A Joyful Reunion)
21. Die Lorelei
22. O Marinariello
 
Ah, the International Gateway Loop; Don Quixote and windmills, anyone? The good news is it's still in action as I spent a good 110 minutes last week listening. Unfortunately, I've nothing to add in terms of the playlist.

Don Quixote and windmills, anyone?
Yeah, I would say my relationship with these World Showcase loops is similiar to Don Quixote and the windmills. On the one hand, I find them to be this piece of EPCOT Center history that deserve documentation. On the other hand, I'm not in Florida to record them myself and many of these loops are difficult to record, even if I could try. So I depend on the kindness of others - thanks, Horizons - and what live clips and information that can be found online to push the project forward.

I discovered while listening to live clips and watching youtube videos that what you might call the France Interior Area Loop plays in the theater of Impressions de France between shows. I've heard beautiful arrangements of C'est Magnifique, Under the Bridges of Paris, and Valentine, but there is just no good way to capture the whole thing. The United Kingdom used to have an Interior Loop - pieces of which are used in DLP's Toad Hall Restaurant - but it has since been retired. (I would assume, though, that "Fairest Isle" is from the UK Interior Loop.) Canada's old Interior Loop also seems to have gone the way of the doe-doe bird.

I'm still looking for an expert on modern Chinese orchestral and Chinese traditional music to help fill in remaining titles on the China Exterior Area Loop. Anyone? Anyone?
