Some musical thoughts

On the way to the library today, I was listening to some music on my little mp3 player, which is really cheap and doesn’t last very long before it has be to charged again. Anyway, it was one of my favorite albums.

I own a five-CD set of music from Disney movies, and Disc 5 is one of my favorites. Several of the early songs are either very spiritual or have an emotional aspect of them that approaches spirituality for me.

It starts off with “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”, from Mulan, sung by Donny Osmond (probably one of the most famous Mormons in the world), though it wasn’t a very spiritual song. Then comes “I Won’t Say I’m in Love” from Hercules, which I also love, and then the most spiritual song, “God Help the Outcasts” from Hunchback of Notre Dame (sung by the character Esmerelda, as a prayer). Track 4 is “If I Can’t Love Her” from the Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast, and then another spiritual song, “Steady as the Beating Drum” from Pocahontas. Then one of my favorite songs, “Belle” from Beauty and the Beast. By the way, I recently borrowed that movie from the library, and loved every minute of it (except when they are going after the Beast). I love to listen to this type of music over and over, and am glad to be able to write about it.

I better stop now, only 3 minutes left online. More later, tchau.
