I love the movie The Little Mermaid and was please to be given the chance to review and host a giveaway of Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection The Little Mermaid 2-disc set.  The CD cover and 20-page booklet feature newly created artwork inspired by “The Little Mermaid” from Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios.  I though his artwork through the booklet was very cute. There is also so much information on the development of the music and the movie The Little Mermaid.  Did you know The Little Mermaid was also the last feature animated film made by Disney that used the traditional  hand painted cells?  It is also the first Disney animated film that used a digitally inked and painted scene.

My older daughter was home with me when I popped the first CD in and cranked it up.  With the opening song I hear her yell from the kitchen, "Is that Little Mermaid or Pocahontas?  It sounds familiar!".  I just quietly ignored her, and by the second song she comes running out to the living room and asks what's up with the new CD.  I held up the booklet and she just grins, then happily goes back to the kitchen to work on her own project.

The first CD includes all of the music in the movie from King Triton's daughters singing in the beginning of the film, to the little tune that Eric plays in his pipe, and all of the instrumental music that helps to set the mood for the scenes through out the movie.  I laughed at my oldest daughter when she told me she wanted to watch The Little Mermaid again.  I was in agreement with her.  I found myself humming along to some of the more memorable songs, especially Poor Unfortunate Souls.  My daughter was flat out singing along with a goofy grin on her face when I peeked in on her.  The entire CD is a little over an hour long, and was fun to listen to, other than the nagging need to watch The Little Mermaid again.

The second CD is composed of Demo music created for the movie.  It was fun to listen to the original song ideas for the movies, but strange too as all the songs were sung by Alen Menken and/or Howard Ashman.  My daughter poked her head out of the kitchen with a strange look on her face, but did not say anything.

I grabbed the first CD and put it in the car when I went to pick up my younger daughter from school.  I knew we had a short time in the car to listen to the music, so my older daughter was skipping to the songs they could sing along with, and a sing-along it was.  My younger daughter then said she wanted to watch the movie.  I guess I know what I'll be watching this weekend.  Random info, my girls are 17 and 20 ~ NEVER too old for Disney!
