This weekend, no matter how embarrassing it may be to state, has been filled with re-watching the Netflix Original Series “Mako Mermaids” because who hasn’t ever wanted to be a mermaid? To be able to swim amongst the ocean life, discovering hidden caves and things not normally seen. To be amongst the wonder would be oh so lovely.
So with that in mind, enjoy one of my favourite songs from my childhood (and most definitely a VHS tape I still own).
“At The Codfish Ball” from Disney Sing-a-long Songs: Under The Sea
Disney and Pixar aren’t for everyone and in the same train of thought, instrumentally-based soundtracks aren’t for all either. I, myself, am guilty to love both and it’s with this love that this week’s soundtrack encompasses both those preferences.
The film, Wall-E, tells the tale of a lonesome, little robot and his life on a now deserted planet earth. All humans have left due to lack of vegetation and all other Wall-E-like robots have died out on the planet. But cute Wall-E survives, lives in the cutest self-made home, and lives day-to-day simply and soundly until everything gets shook up.
The music throughout wonderfully and magically plays into the actions and emotions of the characters, as with most films, but it is as if each instrument was picked specifically, each designed to coincide with the movements and moments of the story playing out. With that it’s as if each instrumental piece gives life not only to scenes but to characters themselves — Breathing life into once two-dimensional beings into full blown living organisms.
It allows the audience to connect to the robotic life on screen and create a physical connection between the human world and the mechanical. Through the use of old melodies and new instrumental creations, the world of earth and the story of WALL-E and EVE and every human on the spaceship become real before our eyes and a new story unfolds.

Yesterday I watched the newest Disney film ‘Frozen’ and I fell in love. My sister and I also came to the conclusion, we’re the two main characters. Myself as Elsa, her as Anna. Now to spread the ‘Frozen’ love, enjoy some of my favourite songs from the film.
