Reviews

This impressive volume describes more than 900 songs written for Disney movies, videos, musicals, television shows, recordings, and theme parks....No other volume offers a comprehensive list or description of Disney songs. Recommended for large performing arts collections. * Booklist *
This first of its kind, this small volume of annotated entries succinctly describes 940 original songs used to date by Disney in its films, television programs, home videos, stage musicals, and more. . . . Hischak is a prolific scholar of popular music and the theater. Being paired here with a first-time author and Disney connoisseur has resulted in a worthwhile and entertaining resource. * American Reference Books Annual *
Hischak (Oxford Companion to American Musical) and Robinson (independent theatre and film scholar) offer descriptions of over 900 Disney songs featured in film, on television, and in their theme parks since 1930. Organized alphabetically by song title, paragraph-long entries detail writers, original context, publication date, and notable performers. For easier entry location, various appendixes give an alternate title list, a song writer's directory, film or program listings, and a guide to various recorded formats. Most at home in collections for Disney enthusiasts or cultural studies scholars. * Library Journal *
Scarecrow has produced a well-bound, well-printed book for the library reference shelf....One page after page, old memories are evoked- memories of time and place beyond the movie or production.... Recommended for libraries with any kind of performing arts collection....Recommend this to future princesses, princes, and the menagerie of Disney fans. * Fontes Artis Musicae *
The authors compile over 900 songs, from Disney's earliest cartoons-the ones we all know by heart-to the latest Disney productions like High School Musical , and provides a paragraph about each. . . . As you browse through the book, you realize how influential "Uncle Walt" was on American popular music. * In The Groove *
The book is laid out in clear fashion.... This is a work that should appear in music libraries and academic institutions that have courses covering modern and popular music. I certainly recommend it for purchase for public libraries where readers will find it quite a difficult to put down book. * s *
"The Disney Song Encyclopedia is a unique and highly recommended addition to personal, professional, and academic library Music History and Disney Studies reference collections." * Midwest Book Review *
