Songs of Childhood

Everybody has its own means to return to childhood in their memory. For some of us it is the smell of ginger cakes which were cooked in your family every Sunday, the others connect their best memories with a box of secrets which contains the greatest treasures of childhood for them. As for me, I return to my early years every time I hear one of the Disney songs as the tradition to watch Disney cartoons was one of the few unchangeable things when I was a kid.

One of my favorite Disney songs is “Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid” series. It is the Oscar-winning composition which was released in 1989 and performed by the crab Sebastian in the cartoon. What I like about this song is that it is not devoted to love and all this sentimental stuff, but to joy of life and the advantages of living where you belong.

“Reflection” from “Mulan” is another song the sounds of which make me remember my childhood. The main heroine sings it in the moment of confusion and despair and the whole composition produces really dramatic effect on the audience.

“Hakuna Matata” from “The Lion King” has provided me with a personal motto for life, which is not difficult to guess. This song is very funny and catchy and the lyrics are just perfect for those who just want to take their time and relax. The talent of the performers has made this masterpiece of Disney music sound even greater. The voices of Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella and Joseph Williams will make you believe that Hakuna Matata is the best principle of life.

In fact, I can go with this rating of best Disney songs on and on, as there is quite a number of them. “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from “The Lion King”, “Colors of the Wind” from “Pocahontas”, “You Can Fly” from “Peter Pan” will surround you with sweet memories of childhood.
