Musical Monday- Go the Distance

 

Today’s Musical Monday goes all the way back to 1997 with the movie Hercules.  I’ve always been a fan of the this classic Disney film.  In fact, it comes in as #5 on My Top 10 Disney Animated Films list.  As I mention in that previous blog post, Hercules has made the top 10 list for 2 reasons; 1) my love of greek mythology, and 2) for the music!!!! My absolute favorite song from the movie (and quite possibly one of my favorite Disney songs ever) is “Go the Distance.”  This stunning arrangement features two pianos and the talents of Shawn Hook and Kurt Hugo Schneider.  Enjoy this week’s Musical Monday!

Musical Monday- Nick Pitera “How Far I’ll Go”

I’ll admit, I was late to the Moana obsession.  I didn’t watch the movie until it was out on DVD, but when I watched it I absolutely adored it!  Not only is the music exceptional, some of it was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, (composer of the Tony Award Winning musical- Hamilton) who I am completely enamored with.  In all honesty, I listened to the soundtrack for about 2 weeks straight because I enjoyed it so much! While there are many catchy tunes from the movie (You’re Welcome and Shiny are the two that stick out in my mind) the song most central to the story of Moana’s journey is “How Far I’ll Go.”  So for today’s Musical Monday I present Nick Pitera’s cover of the song.

maxresdefault-2-570x350.jpg

Today’s “Musical Monday” comes from the Pixar movie Coco.  I saw this movie over Christmas break with my two Godsons and I was absolutely hooked!  Coco is definitely one of my new favorites!  Of course the storyline and music were fantastic, but to me the music was absolutely stirring!  I stumbled across this acapella cover of the movie’s central song- “Remember Me” and fell in love with it!  Enjoy

Musical Monday- Disney Halloween Mashup (featuring Voctave)

Okay, I ran across this little gem back in June and have been saving it for a Monday in October!

Jon Cozart is a YouTuber, gaining fame from his video “After Ever After” (a Disney parody) on his YouTube channel “Paint.”  For this video he combined his already stunning vocal talents with the seasoned vocal talents of Voctave!  For this Halloween mashup they combined “Grim Grinning Ghosts” (written by the Buddy Baker) from the Haunted Mansion and “This is Halloween” (written by Danny Elfman) from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Enjoy this fabulous mash up from some of my all time favorite YouTubers 🙂

Musical Monday- “Evolution of Disney” with Todrick Hall

Oooh do I love Todrick Hall!  He’s gained his popularity as a YouTuber, and many of his videos are disney themed… some are more appropriate (family friendly) than others lol!  “Evolution of Disney” is definitely one of his family friendly works.

Screen Shot 2017-03-11 at 11.23.42 AM.png

In watching his “Evolution of Disney” video, I definitely enjoyed the musical arrangements and quality of the performance.  One slight detail that bothered me is that not all of the music is 100% chronological order of movie/show release date (and it really is in order for the most part…) .  While this bothers me in the “evolution” sense, as a musician, I understand for arrangement purposes why some of the music is out of order.
