Seasonal Music Posted on October 31, 2020 by TXRed A little something for the day . . . and night. For me, this song will always be about Sommerwende in Innsbruck. And what is Halloween without a tribute to Walpurgisnacht? Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
So, in a different time, in a different universe, Shoshana worked as A Disney animator?
You know, given some of the odd vibes in some original Disney films . . .
Now, that is an interesting thought.
Walt Disney had a well-deserved reputation as a money-grubber, but he was also an artistic genius, and I get the sense that he had a rather sideways view of the world. Which itself doesn’t seem to be unusual for animators — I mean, the Nine Old Men were kind of sideways themselves at times, while the Silly Symphonies I’ve seen bear a startling resemblance in tone and level of surrealism to “Yellow Submarine.”
“Walt Disney had a well-deserved reputation as a money-grubber…” to quote Robin Williams,”There is a reason Mickey Mouse only had three fingers, so he couldn’t pick up the check.”
Another old favorite: Heather Alexander’s “Samhain.”
… Come Walpurgisnacht and Beltane, well, that’s another playlist. Mendelssohn and Morris tunes, oh my!
