Hello All:

Despite recent strange interlopers, this is still the first place I come for answers regarding Disney music, and the members of this community rarely let me down.

Can anyone confirm the tracklist for the original 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea queue music? This is the playlist I have, all from WDWF tracks:

01. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
02. Whale of a Tale
03. Drunken Sailor
04. Blow the Man Down
05. Sailing, Sailing
06. My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
07. Asleep in the Deep
08. Sailor's Hornpipe

Is this a full and correct queue music tracklist for the pre-1990s rehab? Were there other tracks beyond these eight?

As always, any help is appreciated.

I have two different queue BGMs but I don't know anything about their origins. I believe you and I spoke about these a year ago. Did you base your playlist off one (or both) of those separate loops? I assume the queue BGM had the narration spiels included, opposed to just instrumental tracks.

BTW, I haven't forgotten about the France recording I owe you.

The only version of the 20K loop that I am aware of that contains the narration runs 15.15 - this version is the second one used during the last couple years of the attraction's existence and derived from music done for Disneyland Paris.

I don't remember where I originally found this tracklist, and that was years and years ago. Part of what got me thinking about the 20K loop was the numerous Columbia Harbor House tracks that seem to be from the same "generation" as the 20K tracks sold over WDWF but not included with those on the kiosks - made me wonder if there were originally more to the 20K loop.

I have not found any live reference recordings to confirm the playlist I have for the first version of the 20K Leagues loop.

I think I have something. I'll have to check, but I won't be able to do so until next week.

The two loops I have differ in tracks, but from what I remember, not in narration spiel.

Yeah, that's how the narration begins.

I've got the impression that the narration did not change, just the music.
