Songs written for Disney productions over the decades have become a potent part of American popular culture. Since most Americans first discovered these songs in their youth, they hold a special place in one's consciousness. The Disney Song Encyclopedia describes and discusses hundreds of famous and not-so-famous songs from Disney films, television, Broadway, and theme parks from the 1930s to the present day.Over 900 songs are given individual entries and presented in alphabetical order. The songwriters and original singers are identified, as well as the source of the song and other venues in which it might have been used over the years. Notable recordings of the song are also listed. But most important, the song is described and what makes it memorable is discussed. This is not a reference list but a true encyclopedia of Disney songs. The book also contains a preface describing the criteria for selecting the songs, a glossary of song terms, a list of all the Disney songs and their sources, a songwriter's directory in which every song by each composer/lyricist is listed, a bibliography, a guide to recordings and DVDs of Disney productions, and an index of people and titles.

THOMAS S. ROBINSON. The Disney Song Encyclopedia Thomas S. Hischak Mark A. For the purposes of this book, it is any new song written for a Disney product, be it a feature or short film, a Broadway musical, a television show or special, a made-for-video production, a record, or a theme park. But a Disney song is also a state of mind, a lyrical and musical expression of an idea that harkens back to the simple but potent premise that first distinguished Walt Disney more than nine decades ago.

The collaborative work of Thomas S. Robinson, The Disney Song Encyclopedia is a 400 page encyclopedic compendium showcasing succinct descriptions of more than 900 Disney film associated songs-many of which made significant popular cultural.

Although about half of the world's population love Disney animated films and live-action gems such as "Mary Poppins," there is no denying that beyond the images is music that is critical to the success of so many Disney classics. And, the music is superb popular culture. One loses track of just how many Disney songs have won Oscars for either Best Song or Best Soundtrack. This history of Disney music is a must-have book for Disney lovers. And, this is no mere listing of song titles. Each entry provides a large amount of background history and a bonus feature of listings of currently available recordings of the Disney songs by artists across almost any music genre to be imagined. A bargain price for such a complete encyclopedia of great popular music.

If you're interested in Disney songs, this book is a must. The book lists the songs alphabetically by song title, but one of the many appendixes lists the songs by the movie, or show, etc. in which the song appeared. The descriptions of the songs often tell you artists who sang the song and recordings that were made. This is very helpful for collecting purposes. There are appendixes that list whether the songs appear on CDs or DVD -- just a wealth of information.

All that being said, what prevents this from being perfect is what is left out. To be fair, the introduction does state that the book only covers songs that originated in Disney productions, and that it would not be covering all the many songs in Disney TV shows, such as The Mickey Mouse Club or the Wonderful World of Disney. The problem with this is that a song that appeared in a Golden Girls episode gets listed, but the songs from Babes in Toyland -- a movie Walt Disney himself was involved in -- do not. Those songs should have been included. Moreover, songs from the TV shows that were produced while Disney lived should have been included. However, this criticism should not stop you from purchasing this very interesting book.
