I am so stoked for this weekend! Reason being? I get the chance to re-live my childhood. I am going to Saturday Morning Tunes through WTMD, a local radio station. They will have bands like Matt Hutchinson, Black Root Underground, and Kristen Toedtman. All will be playing songs from Aladdin and Lion King. I love these movies! Actually, Aladdin and Lion King are probably my favorite animated Disney movies. And the fact that the song Allie and I picked as “our” song is A Whole New World from Aladdin makes me anticipate this Saturday a lot more.
Plus you can’t go wrong with Lion King songs like Hakuna Matata. All those songs are just some of my favorite vintage childhood nostalgia songs. I grew up with these songs. I know this is technically classified as a “kids show” or a “family show” but I am wondering if it’ll be more people around my age who are purely there for nostalgia reasons.
And actually the fact that they are doing classic Disney movies as opposed to newer ones like Frozen and Moana, I think, says something. Not that Frozen and more “modern” Disney movies aren’t good movies—they are—but knowing the Disney movies I grew up with, this is perfect!
Apart from the nostalgia factor, as I stated, the song Allie and I picked for us is from Aladdin. So I am looking forward to hearing this song live and singing it with and to the love of my life! I love Disney and I love Allie even more, so combine those two and I’m a very happy person!
I am so incredible pumped for this show! If you are a Disney fan like me, feel free to comment. Thanks for reading!
