The Disney Theme-Park Background Music Bracket -- Round Five, Day One
The Final Four begins today.
Well, friends, we’ve finally arrived at the Final Four of the Disney Theme-Park Background Music bracket. (Unrelated: today also marks the start of a writers’ strike in Hollywood. Solidarity with the Writers’ Guild. Period.)
On one hand, I’m not too surprised by what background loops have made it this far, though I do think it’s interesting that most — not all! — of the attraction-specific loops have fallen by the wayside. Not all attraction-specific loops are just quotes of the ride audio, but it’s been the case that just about everything that has survived to this point of the bracket is all-encompassing by land.
So now it’s time for you to decide which of these loops you’ll send to the big finish. Ready to vote? Let’s go!

(8) Soarin’ queue loop vs. (2) Buena Vista Street loop: Two excellent background loops in this matchup (and honestly, I find this matchup just a wee bit more difficult than the matchup you’ll have to deal with tomorrow). Only one can win, and the photo directly above this paragraph does align with my preference.
Yes, if it’s up to me, I’d be voting for the Buena Vista Street loop. In this case, the choice is a bit esoteric, in that my reasoning is likely only applicable to me. What reasoning is that? Well, the Soarin’ loop, as previously mentioned, is comprised of music from a series of motion pictures, many of them either themed to aviation or action of some kind. So, in short, this is a medley of Rousing Movie Scores you could find on YouTube if someone was so intrepid, whether or not it had to do with a theme-park attraction. The vibe is appropriate, of course, but I give the point to Buena Vista Street because the music isn’t combined of non-Disney-movie soundtracks.
But that’s me. What do you think?
