You know who’s completely awesome? Alan Menken. The man behind the musical score and half the songs at New Disney, from The Little Mermaid all the way through Tangled, Alan Menken is a golden god. Add to that innovative animation, spectacular voice acting, and questionably-controversial reinterpretations of classic stories from around the world, and you have the one company that has owned me completely since I was too young to know any better. Sure, other companies have proven able to do it better from time to time – The Road to El Dorado, for one, and The Iron Giant never fails to make me cry – but time and again, Disney has been the King. For better or worse, the Mouse is with us.
This week’s question came anonymously from Tumblr: You’ve discovered that you have the ability to hear the soundtrack of your life in your head. What musician, living or dead, scores your daily soundtrack?

Hans Zimmer. And I could see myself commanding “MAKE MY YOGURT EATING SOUND INCEPTIONY!” Because I’d be able to converse with him as he scored my life. And everyone wants their yogurt consumption to sound bad ass.

William Anderson would do the score. And Daniel Ingram would write any songs that were involved. And there’d be a LOT of songs. My life could be a musical! Who wouldn’t want their life to be a musical? Non-musical people, that’s who! Which is okay too.
No points for guessing why its these two.
What about you, readers?
