Despite the magic of Disney, the internet has taken to being mad at Disney with a hit song written by Bendik Møller, and Jason Hahs. Performed by Salem Ilese, this song took the world by storm.
With that being said, Switching Styles is bringing you 13 horror versions of typically happy and optimistic songs. Bringing these forward in a horror setting is unnerving to say the least. Tis the season for fear. Enjoy!!
The album Nightmare Revisited, is a collection of covers from the soundtrack which started with the additions to film’s 2006 re-release in Disney Digital 3-D. Included in the 13th- anniversary edition DVD was a bonus disc with covers of five of the film’s songs by Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, Marilyn Manson, Fiona Apple, and She Wants Revenge.
Bringing you the orders from the empire itself with metal beauty, Galactic Empire is a metal band made up of Bass Commander (bass), Red Guard (guitar), Dark Vader (lead guitar), Kyle Ren (guitar), and Boba Sett (drums). Together they made a sound that’s out of this world. It all started in 2015 as a mere gag for an opening band. Over the past few years, it’s become much much more than a gag.
Even the trailer and advertising for the new film were rather different than the original. In one promotional video, they present Hakuna Matata in different languages.
Second only to Dumbo (who doesn’t speak at all), Aurora had the least lines of any Disney Movie lead. The princess spoke less than 20 lines in the whole film. As the voice of Princess Aurora, Mary Costa became entwined with the character. Regardless of the lack of lines, when the audience does hear her voice especially for the songs she sings, it’s majestic. Trying to decide which specific song to highlight is almost as difficult as the fairy godmother’s trying to decide whether Aurora’s dress should be pink or blue. The scenes where the two fairies couldn’t agree on whether the dress should be pink or blue is inspired by the filmmaker’s own indecision on the dress’s colour. The iconic song of Sleeping Beauty is “Once Upon a Dream” is the focus of our article. Enjoy these amazing covers!
Most of the soundtrack is simply musical scores not sung music. The score of the film is beautiful and received a nomination for the 76th Academy Awards for Best Original Score losing against Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I can’t argue with that choice as it’s a film series I eventually will be covering (Yes, pun intended).
In fact, there are only three lyrical songs in the whole film; Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by Darla played by LuLu Ebeling, “Just Keep Swimming” by Dory played by Ellen DeGeneres, and finally “Beyond the Sea” performed by Robbie Williams.
This movie and it’s resulting music is rather dark with some seriously real undertones. Thus this article will focus on one of the darker songs. “The song “Hellfire” is considered one of the darkest songs written for a Disney film, and was nearly cut from the film,” quotes the trivia section on IMDB.
This movie is one of the most whimsical films that Disney has done (in my opinion). It contrasts dreary England with the imaginative magic of a whole new world. That contrast makes the whimsy that Mary Poppins brings forth to the children and the audience for that matter, all the more sensational. The highlighted song for this article from the gorgeous 1964 film is, of course, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Check the highlighted covers below!
Swedish musician Fredrik Larsson created a musical project titled FreddeGredde to highlight his skills as a musician while bringing in his love for pop culture. With Medleys on pop culture aspects such as The Big Bang Theory, Super Mario Bros, and Disney, combined with countless original songs, this project is a certain success.
