Music in an old Disney cartoon
« on: May 29, 2007, 11:20:59 PM »
Halfway through this thing, just after Donald's met the ice dancer, there is a theme played to some "egyptian" dancing. Do anyone know from which work and by which composer the theme is?

I can't watch the clip because I'm having trouble with my browser. But even without watching I'd venture a guess: the Bacchanale from Samson et Delilah (Saint-Saens) - probably the theme that comes in about one third into the piece. It's the standard "Egyptian" tune in cartoons and the like.

The linked activeX control doesn't work very well for me in either IE or Opera (it never finishes the download, and it is not a stream)... I had to DL the AVI file using the direct URL.
.. but I wouldn't recommend that to others -- it's 50 megs.

However, I extracted the relevant audio portion, it can be downloaded here:

... I don't know what it is, I would guess it is just composed specifically for the cartoon.

I can recommend music in a similar vein though: Carl Nielsen's "Aladdin". :)

That's a great help.
I wonder if anybody in here know of composers who worked with Disney.

This one is best known as Hootchy Kootchy Dance in the US, but it is believed to be an old Eygptian Melody.

We have probably 75+ Disney cds...anything you are looking for in particular?

Not really, Bogey. I was just trying to find leads.
orbital has nailed it. Some lyrics for a childrens song!

Thank you all for contributing. Now I know.
