Aside from the circus, Disney On Ice shows are easily the most beloved family show on TN.com. They bring everyone's favorite Disney characters to life... on ice. I used to attend shows like these as a kid, and I always loved them. There was nothing quite like getting to see princesses, whether Cinderella or Jasmine, up close, while also singing along with them to songs from Disney movies I already loved.
Disney films have some of the most iconic songs of all time. There's nothing like Snow White singing "Whistle While You Work" to get your Monday morning going, right? (You may think I'm being facetious, but I can assure you, I am not. This playlist on YouTube is pretty much my favorite ever.)
The current Disney On Ice shows touring the U.S. — Rockin’ Ever After, Passport to Adventure, 100 Years of Magic, Princesses and Heroes, Let’s Celebrate! — feature characters from some of my favorite Disney movies, like "The Lion King," "Toy Story," "Aladdin," and "The Princess and the Frog." So here are some of my absolute favorite Disney songs, from the very films that make up the current Disney On Ice performances.
This week, we've been inspired by everyone who came together following the Boston Marathon tragedy, amused by a Pixar/AMC mash-up, and giggling uncontrollably at things that sounds like "bad words" on TV.
Bruins/Sabres National Anthem
The recent Boston bombings have been on everyone’s minds this week, with an overwhelming amount of support for Boston throughout the country. The hashtag #BostonStrong has been trending on Twitter, alongside tweets of support and well wishes, including the Boston Red Sox. At a Yankees v. Diamondbacks game earlier this week, the team paid tribute to their longtime rivals, Boston Red Sox, by playing “Sweet Caroline” — the song that’s become a staple of the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The first Boston home game (Boston Bruins played Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden) gave us what could arguably be one of the best National Anthem performances ever. Rene Rancourt, who was intended to sing the song, got through only a few lines before the entire crowd joined in. They sang the rest together.
