The Disney Theme-Park Background Music Bracket -- Round Three, Day Two
Any happy little thought?
Well, yesterday sure was a week and a half of news, huh? A shame that we didn’t get three separate news anchors losing their jobs to make it a true trend. (I have no opinion either way on Don Lemon being canned at CNN, but rarely has the “Powers Boothe saying ‘Well…bye’ in Tombstone” GIF been more apt than when I heard the Tucker Carlson news.)
No news anchors to vote on or against here, though. It’s time to sit back, relax, and listen to the sounds as we vote on more options in the third round of the Disney Theme-Park Background Music bracket. Let’s go!

(1) Fantasyland Dark Ride Suite vs. (4) Disneyland Hotel - Adventure Tower loop: I like the Fantasyland attractions as much as possible, but I will vote for the Adventure Tower here. I’ve spoken before about how much I like the underrated work of composer and arranger George Bruns, specifically the work he did on films like The Jungle Book. Sadly, there’s very little left in this bracket of Bruns’ work, so I’m pushing hard for him this time.
Vote for Bruns! Vote for adventure!

(2) Buena Vista Street loop vs. (3) World of Color soundtrack: The photo above can be considered misleading. You might see it and think, “Well, I know what Josh is voting for.” Ah, but you don’t! I tricked you! Seriously, though, there’s no hesitation in my mind that the Buena Vista Street loop, all 80 minutes of it, is one of the very best options remaining in this bracket. Yes, World of Color is a phenomenal nighttime show, and presumably its fire effects are still usable, but still. When we’re just thinking about the audio and what I’d want to listen to at any given moment, give me the jazzy, bouncy strains of Buena Vista Street.
What do you think?
