"Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me..." This one went on to kick off a whole series of hit movies.
From the people who wrote "It's a Small World", it's "One Little Spark" from Epcot's Imagination pavillion! "I-maaaaaaa-gin-aaaaation! I-maaaaaaa-gin-aaaaation!" (South Park spoofed this in its Imaginationland arc.)
From Your Friend the Rat: "Imagine if you will a world where women, rats, and men and children live in peace and harmony. We're even holding hands! We're dancing through the streets and singing cabaret songs. Ooh la la la! Join with us! We'll make a human ratty wonderland!"
O RLY? This troper has had "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" wedged into his head forcefully for God knows how long... which has only served to make him love it even more. Go figure.
Who can forget this number from Beauty and the Beast? Gosh it disturbs me to see you Gaston, looking so down in the dumps, every guy would love to be you Gaston even when taking your lumps, there's no man in town as admired as you, you're everyone's favourite guy, everyone's awed and inspired by you, and it's not very hard to see why. No one's slick as Gaston, no one's quick as Gaston, no one's neck as incredibly thick as Gaston's, there's no man in town half as manly, perfect a pure paragon. You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley and they will tell you whose team they'd prefer to be on.
No one's gloomy or complaining While the flatware's entertaining We tell jokes I do tricks With my fellow candlesticks
Look there she goes. That girl is strange, no question...
What's worse is getting the little instrumental part of that song stuck in your head...da, dahdah, dah DAAAH dud..da, dahdah du DAAH!
Korn nothing, listen to Buckethead's version here. It leads into the Halloween theme.
Hey, don't forget Oogie Boogie's song.
How could I forget something that hideously catchy...
"Release me now or you must face dire consequences! The children are expecting me, so please come to your senses!"
"You're jokin'! You're jokin'! I can't believe my ears! Would someone shut this fella up? I'm drownin' in my tears! It's funny! I'm laughin'! You really are too much! And now, with your permission, I'm going to do my stuff."
Maybe you've heard of a terrible place where the scoundrels of Paris collect in a lair...
"Hellfire! Dark fire! Now Gypsy, it's your turn...choose me or your pyre! Be mine or you will buuuuuuuuuuurn..."
"Now here is a riddle to guess if you can, sing the bells of Notre Daaame: who is the monster and who is the maaaan? Sing the bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, BELLS OF NOTREEEEE DAAAAAAAAAAAME!"
Who wouldn't love a guuuuuuuuuuy liiiiiiiike yooooooooooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
"Once a year, we throw a party here in town! Once a year, we turn all Paris upside-down!"
"Stay away from them, child. They're Gypsies, for they'll rob us blind!"
"Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E! Hey, there! Hi, there! Ho, there! You're as welcome as can be! M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E!"
Though this isn't the original version of the song, this troper heard the Mickey/Donald/Goofy version of this tune from a lowly Sing-Along-Songs tape at a young age, never saw it again, and still remembered it after all these years. Always will, too. "It's friendship, friendship! Just the perfect blendship!"
I'll start with a circle/Then draw a line/The line's the horizon/The circle's the sun/And maybe some squiggles/To look like a hill/The hill we drove over/The day I moved to Bluffington...
Wish I was anybody else at all/I mean it Skeeter, almost anybody else at all/Instead of feeling like I'm slamming up against a wall/A total loser!/You think that any other kid could see/How much I'm itchin` to be any other kid but me!/To pull a switch and hitch the dope who blew a date with her/I'd pull a lot more weight with her/As anybody else- at all!!!!
Pump me up, pump me up/Drain his brain and pump me up/Once his ego takes a stomping/Hear me holler, "Ain't I something?"/Keep it pumping...
Doesn't matter what he does/To get your spirit swayin`/Stick to being you, because/No matter what he's sayin`/Quailman, you, and only you, can save the daaay!!!!
Let's slay the beast... tonight / Let's slay the beast, ALRIGHT!
Hey, girl!/Have you seen her? When's Minnie gonna get here?/I thought she'd be here by now!/Well, the party ain't fun without Minnie Mouse!/Ooohhh, Is she in? Is she in? Is Minnie In?/When Minnie walks in then the fun begins!/The place is hummin', drummin', waitin' for her/When's she gonna be here? We all adore her! (Minnie Mouse)/The whole place's like a beehive buzzin'/'Cause in here she's the queen, believe me! (Me too! Me three!)/We're talkin', talkin', talkin' about her/I wish she'd hurry up 'cause it's no fun without her! (Minnie Mouse)/Have you heard? Have you heard? Have you heard what's the word?/The word is Minnie! (Minnie! Yeah!)/'Cause Minnie's the one we're waitin' for/To soar through the door and score on the dance floor!/Yo, check it out! Catch the spin!/Put a grin on your chin 'cause Minnie is in!
Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Minnie mouse is in the house (repeat)
Now that Minnie's here, it's a mouse-house party/Go tell it on Michael and Mona and Marty/Gonna twirl, gonna swirl, gonna ride the groove/And when you see her, you've got to MOVE!/Move, baby! Move to the motion of the sound waves like an ocean/Well, now I'm thinkin', don't just stand there blinkin'/She just came in all pretty and pink and.../Presto! Change-O! Hocus-pocus!/She's a polka-dot princess, she's got the focus!/She sticks with Mick through thick and thin/So put a grin on your chin... ...because Minnie is in!
Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse is in the house (repeat 4*)
Well, now you know no one would ever diss her/'Cause if she went away, we would really miss her!/The dance floor is her heart and soul territory, that's her story/The story of Minnie Mouse! (Minnie Mouse!)/In the house! (In the house!)/Mick's girlfriend is in the mix/So make a chance, take a glance, catch her dancin', prancin'!/All the night and all the day/Well, you know what I'm going to say/When Minnie's in, then the fun begins/So put a grin on you chin... ...because Minnie is in!
Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse is in the house... (fade out)
Anyone who owned a copy of the 101 Dalmatians Animated Storybook will be occasionally haunted by the super-catchy songs one could listen to while playing it.
"We shall not, we shall not be moved! We shall not, we shall not be moved..."
"Ahoy there, sailor, can you do the otter dance?/First you take your right flipper and you slap it on your pants/Next you take your left flipper and you catch a little fish/Then you take your little tail and go swish, swish, swish!"
"My old man don't believe in otters!"
"Oh, we're the men, from over there, there, there, there..."
"I'm a hula hula hula baby!"
"Welcome Vincent, to the circle of CHAMPIONS!"
"First there's meeee, the statewide singing champ, and then there's heeeeer, the statewide spelling champ, and then there's hiiiim, the statewide chess champ, and that's not ALL!"
"We've got a checkers champ, a Latin champ, a fencing champ, a science king, a jump rope champ, a drawing champ, a whistling champ, a hopscotch queen, and that's not AAALLLL!!!"
"We've got a poker champ, a fishing champ, a marbles champ, a ping-pong king, a puzzles champ, a banjo champ, a skittle champ, a fish-stick queen, AND THAT'S NOT AAAAALLLL!!!!"
"Gus, Gus, Oh mighty Gus, king of all the playground! Gus, gus, oh shiny Gus, we're glad such a great king we've found!"
"Oh, jingle bells/Prickley smells/Menlo's such a drag/Ashley girls flip their curls/And Finster is a hag/Oh, jingle bells/Randall tells/Kindergartners scream/What's that noise? The digger boys/For lunch they ate some beans/Oh Jingle bells/Christmas spells:/Two weeks off from school/No more books/Or lunch from cooks/The holidays are cool!
"We're off to see those Nitwitz 3/3 men, a monkey, and a talking rubber duckie/Just don't ask why, `cuz they'll reply, 'Me no know!'"
