Some ideas simply take life from undertakings that originally have nothing to do with it. The first volume of what would become the Disney’s Sing-Along Songs home video series was actually put together as a special to promote the 1986 theatrical re-release of the film Song of the South, of which its most famous song forms part of the program.
Now we’ll take a look at the song list for Disney’s Sing-Along Songs volume 1, which have been collected from no less than seven Disney films, two TV series and one iconic Disneyland ride attraction.
- The Mickey Mouse Club March (from 1955-59’s The Mickey Mouse Club TV show)
