With the first teaser for the live-action Disney adaptation of their 1993 animated classic Aladdin now available to the public, it seems rather appropriate that we pick up our long pause on covering the song lists for Disney’s home media series Sing Along Songs, with the volume concerning it.
Indeed, this volume which was released in the year Aladdin originally premiered had its introductory spotlight focused on a particular song from the film, the leitmotif of which was prominent in the new live-action trailer. It’s of course, “Friend Like Me” as sung by Robin Williams in character as the Genie.
Even the Disney Sing Along Songs intro was altered slightly by having the end of “A Friend Like Me” overwrite the intro sequence’s ending bars. This was the first time it happened in the home video series, and it won’t be the last. With that said, here’s the song list:
- Friend Like Me (from 1993’s Aladdin)
- Best of Friends (from 1981’s The Fox and the Hound)
- Something There (from 1991’s Beauty and the Beast)
- How Do You Do? (from 1946’s Song of the South)
- Friendship (performed by Mickey, Donald and Goofy)
- In Harmony (from The Little Mermaid TV Series 1992-94)
- Let’s Get Together (from 1961’s The Parent Trap)
- That’s What Friends Are For (from 1967’s The Jungle Book)
- A Whole New World (from Aladdin)
- Reprise conclusion: Friend Like Me
