I asked awhile back about the Fantasmic pre-show loop, and no one had an answer, so I went and figured it out for myself. :) Go me! :D Anyways, I thought I'd post what I found here for anyone who's interested. There's still a few holes, so if anyone knows how to fill them in, it would be much appreciated! The parenthesees behind the title is what CD it is from)

WDW Fantasmic pre-show music loop
1. You've Got a Friend in Me (Toy Story 2)
2. Iko Iko (The Little Mermaid II)

5. (Dancin With Mickey Mouse song - title unknown!)
6. Under the Sea (Mouse House)

Hey, Kirsten --

Great work -- I'm trying to reconstruct this one.

Questions: is it possible that track 21 is Eartha Kitt's performance of Snuff Out The Light (Yzma's Song) from The Emperor's New Groove soundtrack and that track 24 might be "Jungle Book Groove" from the live-action film's soundtrack?

Oh, and other possibilities: Pink Elephants on Parade & Wanna Be Like You could both be from the "Stay Awake" CD... in fact, I kinda sorta recall that disc being used there, so that *might* be a direct hit...

Awesome info there, Kirsten!

Just curious--do you (or anyone else, for that matter) have even a live recording of the un-identified songs? That might help people place the particular versions of the ones that are missing.

Steve - I'll have to go looking for those online and see if they sound familiar! Thanks for the ideas!

Scott - I don't yet, but I was thinking of going back and trying something like that, cause I'm not sure how well I could recognize them (I was trying to memorize versions of 27 songs, after all! :) ) My only problem would really be crowd noise, which is why I had so much trouble with track 21 (that was where the stadium really started filling up).

(who's off to download some stuff and see!)

Good luck, Kirsten - if you need any help finding any of my "suggestions" let me know and something can be arranged.

Also, if you could try and offer up any further description on tracks 5 & 27 - any kind of detail or memory that would help us ID them, that would be great. My only thought on track 5 at the moment is "Disco Mickey Mouse" from the (duh!) Mickey Mouse Disco CD -- but I have a sneaking suspicion that's not it... 27, I'll admit has me utterly snowed at the moment.

On track 5, I can remember some of the lyrics. It's the one that goes "Uh-huh, oh yeah, now you're dancin' with the mouse... oh yeah, now you're dancin' with Mickey Mouse"... it also opens with the Mickey Mouse Club theme.

As for track 27, it's basically the Beach Boys' "Surfin Safari" with Disney characters talking.

OK, Kirsten. Track 27 is definitely from the "Mickey's Sports Songs" CD (1996). You can hear a sample on Amazon.com.

Heh. Got it. Track 5 is *definitely* "Mickey Mouse Club Mix" from the CD "Mickey Unrapped".

I think that's a lock on the whole thing :)

I believe Track 21 is a mamba-ish version of "Castle in Spain" from "Babes in Toyland".

I don't know which album it's from, though.

Steve - Thanks!! I wondered about those, but I hadn't been able to find a copy online to check it out.

Philip - I'll try looking for that one! I don't remember much of the Babes in Toyland music. Good call!

Philip:

I can't locate any recordings of that tune other than the original soundtrack version... I'm still leaning towards the Eartha Kitt number from the TENG soundtrack based on the description Kirsten gave...

Both track 21 & 27 are from the STAY AWAKE album. Track 21 is the first song ("Castle in Spain" from Babes in toyland) on the MEDLEY THREE track and is by Buster Pointdexter

I'll have to keep looking for that song... it hasn't come up on any programs I've tried. :( But thans! Is it just a cut from that track?

Somewhere in this loop used to play Billy Joel's When You Wish Upon a Star from Simply Mad About the Mouse? Did they drop that song?

As far as I know, "When you Wish Upon a Star" is no longer played. I got there as soon as the stadium opened, and heard the whole loop through about 1.5 times... never heard that one. I think it must've been removed.
