Day 10 of my new blog challenge –
Share Your Music! 30 Days 30 Songs!
I think I can slowly detect a certain pattern for choosing my favourite songs for this challenge – most of them seem to be connected to a movie I love!
The song for today is no exception – in fact, it’s one of those songs that actually made the movie the hit it was and still is:
I watched The Jungle Book with my mum in the cinema and was instantly hooked – the music was just perfect, as were the character, the tale, the drawings…
I’ve even read The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling before I’ve watched the movie, and for once in my life wasn’t disappointed by the adaptation which can be so easily the case when a beloved book is made into a movie.
The Jungle Book actually still is the most successful Disney-movie ever to be played in German cinemas, actually it is the most successful movie!
It’s huge success is based on the excellent synchronization by Heinrich Riethmüller, and to be honest, when I sing the songs of The Jungle Book – which happens occasionally 😉 – I sing them in their German version.
From all those wonderful Walt Disney movies that I’ve watched since, this will always be my very favourite.
