Disneyland Music Loops
Posted 21 March 2002 - 10:32 AM
I know the Oasis has gone through a number of incarnations, from the dinner show, to a themed restaurant space, to the storytelling it is today. Did all three use the same BGM? Does storytelling even have music? I've only been once, so I don't remember what they do now.
Once during the restaurant phase, we sat there long enough to identify the songs:
1. Lawrence of Arabia
2. Dueling Banjos
3. Sweet Georgia Brown
4. Norwegian Wood
5. The Entertainer
6. In the Mood
8. Surfin' USA
9. New York, New York
10. I Dream of Jeannie
11. Sing, Sing, Sing
12. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Of course, it was all this funky middle-eastern-sitar type stuff, so who knows where it came from.
BTW, this is an absolutely fantastic discussion--thanks to everyone for all this great info. Now the question is *finding* all this...hehehe

It is fun to track this stuff down, though. And thanks to all you guys for helping out this 56K slacker. I'm currently working on Tomorrowland Loops (nowhere near done). Any information on where to find some of those would be great.

You're correct that the Desecration Rag No. 1 is edited. That's actually what I was thinking of rather than the Aviation Rag. But it not matching your recording is easily explained. Track No 8 is one of the two discrepancies between the DL and WDW loops. At DL, it's "Aviation Rag"; at WDW, it's "Before the Parade Passes By." Since "Before the Parade Passes By" is also from Hello, Dolly!, it makes sense that it would come between Elegance and Put On Your Sunday clothes. One wonders why it would be changed to "Aviation Rag" at Disneyland...
What's the other discrepancy between the parks' loops?

Anyway, I read somewhere that the Plaza Inn BGM was the same as the Crystal Palace in WDW. Not that I have that list, but I know that it exists somewhere. If anyone has the Crystal Palace list, then we can find the Plaza Inn.
I was working yesterday on the Disney Gallery Tomorrowland 1955-1989 loop, and I'm missing these four tracks:
America the Beautiful Opening
People Mover Boarding Announcement
Miracles from Molecules (Lounge Version) - Jason, any idea what the difference in this and the other version on that loop is?
People Mover Narration (Jack Wagner) - I have the updated version, with the female voice.
If anyone has these tracks I'll trade you whatever you might be missing from the rest of that loop.

The Jack Wagner track on that loop is interesting. Someone somewhere along the line made a mistake in mixing it down, because they have WDW PeopleMover music playing behind Jack's spiel!

The lists of music that I've posted have indeed been culled from numerous sources. A lot of it is just listening to the music loop and (with the help of friends) identifying what tracks are playing. I've done some live recordings of music loops in the Parks and that's helped somewhat. Other loops are from others who have done the same sort of listening in the past with music loops that no longer play (like the Aladdin's Oasis BGM). The more current needledrop loops, like the DCA stuff, are mostly from WDI lists. Hope that answers the question!
Pirates and Haunted Mansion don't have music loops (unless you're referring to the individual elements that loop), but there is Riverfront Background Music. I have a partial list of that; I can't remember if I posted it yet. Here it is:
Alexander's Ragtime Band
The Royal Garden Blues
Maple Leaf Rag
The Old Piano Roll Blues
When the Saints Go Marchin' In
After You've Gone
Any jazz fans out there going to Disneyland in the near future that can add to the list?

They all basically sounded like overtures or main titles tracks for various films. Stuff in brackets I'm not 100% sure of, but I took a good stab.
Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing
Guys & Dolls
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
The Sound of Music
The Wizard of Oz
The Music Man
My Fair Lady
[Meet Me In St. Louis]
New York, New York
West Side Story
Unfortunately, they turn the queue music off fairly often (e.g., if there's a show on Hollywood Blvd.), so I never heard a complete loop, and thus have no idea what or even how much might be between V/V and LIAMST.
I've listened to the Hollywood & Dine music before, and while a lot of it is somewhat familiar big band tunes from the 40s, I just am not familiar enough with them to identify many titles.
Oh, and while I'm thinking of it, one more loop to add to the list of loops...Hollywood Pictures Backlot Christmas. I tried taking some notes on it in December, but it was all vocals, and again, I recognized very few of the singers.
So, who wants to set up the "sit and listen to background music for hours" meet at the parks?

The only song I remember from the Hollywood Christmas Loop was from Nightmare Before Christmas. Definately something I would like to know more of.
I think the best way to tackle this would be to record the loops at the parks, post them to the internet, and use the vast knowledge of the internet to identify them. Shouldn't be too hard right?

Seriously, though, I've been working on gathering these songs, and I've got some questions.
1. Did anyone ever figure out what song #8 is on the Toontown loop or song #11 on the Jungle Cruise Queue?
2. Does anyone know where you can find instrumental versions of Smile Darn Ya Smile (Toontown loop) and the Peter Pan's Flight Queue music?
3. What about songs 2, 4, and 5 on the Submarine Voyage Queue? I know, that one's a longshot, but hey, it's worth asking about.
4. Anyone had luck tracking down the Fantasyland Organ tracks or the listing for the Snow White Queue?
C'mon people, we need answers here. Well, at least those of us who live in Georgia and can't go to the park do.

As for the Submarine Voyage loop -- I have an amateur, incomplete recording of the queue area, and I hear the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea tracks. The clip I have includes "A Long Time Ago" followed by "Sailor's Hornpipe," which would make it #4. The rest . . . anybody's guess.

I remember the sub queue loop. You could also hear the voice of the sub captain from time to time too.
The Keel boats had a Banjo loop
Then, you have the State Fair and Circus Fantasy loops.
I have an incomplete amateur recording of some of the Big Thunder Ranch State Fair Loop.
There was the music loop that played in the now gone giant music box that was at the Front gate.
There was the African Tribe music loop in the old Jungle Cruise queue. I couldn't tell one song from another.
During my last visit, I rode the Mark Twain. The Boat Landing music is different from what I recorded there.
There is more, I'll stop now.

Also a big tip of my Mouse Ears to Jason for his excellant research.

I noticed today, as I was walking through Frontierland at DL, there is a different loop that plays right at the "fort" at the entrance to the land. It's distinct from the normal Frontierland loop, and only seems to play right there--maybe only from one or two speakers, even.
Anyway, it's only five songs, and maybe only about 7 minutes. The only song I recognized was "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again". The other four were banjo, fife and drum, that sort of thing.
Sorry for the distinct lack of info, but maybe someone else can go take a listen and see if they recognize anything else.
