Stockholm Syndrone

the-little-mermaid

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Stockholm Syndrone (a song my daughter has requested so many times that I’ve pushed through insanity and found contentment on the other side). Let’s do this one lyrically:

Look at this song, isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you love to hear it on repeat?
Wouldn’t you think I’m a dad — a dad who thinks this jam’s sweet?

Here’s the thing: I do. I really do. I’ll listen to or sing “Part Of Your World” whenever, wherever. The Little Mermaid definitely has my favorite Disney movie music. Sorry, Lion King and Aladdin. Even the seafood chef song is a masterpiece.

Fun fact #1: Ariel’s voice is crucial to the story, but she only sings one song. Seems weird, doesn’t it? But it totally makes sense from a plot perspective.

Fun fact #2: Ok, so this isn’t necessarily a fact, I have a theory that this is the reason so many people compared Natalie Prass to a Disney princess, because both “Part Of Your World” and “It Is You” involve lists of precious objects. Who knows. Just a thought.
