Now Disney: That's What I Call Disney 

"Two titans of entertainment, NOW That's What I Call Music! and Walt Disney Records, have teamed up for the November 6 release of NOW That's What I Call Disney, a new album collection showcasing beloved music classics.

NOW That's What I Call Disney features 20 favorite musical moments that have been enchanting and entertaining audiences for generations, including "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio, "Someday My Prince Will Come" from Snow White, "The Bare Necessities" from The Jungle Book, Elton John's "Circle of Life" from The Lion King, "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, Randy Newman's "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story, "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" from Cinderella, "Bella Notte" from Lady and the Tramp, "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty, and many more.

"NOW is the top selling recorded music franchise and has transcended from a purely current chart compilation to represent the very best of many musical genres," says NOW Music COO, Jerry Cohen.  "We believe the combination of Disney and NOW brands together brings the level of attention deserved to an amazing collection of classic Disney songs and the NOW team is especially proud to have this opportunity."

Added Disney Music Group's Senior Vice President/GM Cathleen Taff, "Disney's movies and songs create such memorable moments during childhood that they stay with us throughout our lives. This collection spans several generations, and is something families can enjoy listening to together.  NOW is a natural collaboration for us."

My Thoughts:

Does your family love Disney movies?  If so, then you have probably heard most, if not all of the hits that make up the new NOW That's What I Call Music! Disney release?  As soon as Savannah saw Buzz and Woody on the cover of the CD, she went crazy and wanted to listen.  So, I popped the CD into the CD player in the kitchen, and we spent the next hour enjoy wonderful hits from some of Disney's best family films.  Included on this CD are hit songs from Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Toy Story, Cars, Lady and Tramp, and the Lion King, just to name a few.

Savannah recently discovered The Jungle Book and now watches this movie and the updated version at least 2-3 times a week.  Her favorite song is Bare Necessities, so I was excited to see this song included on the CD.  And, when it began playing, Savannah had a smile from ear to ear, and then proceeded to dance around the living room with Arabella.  We have been having a blast listening to all the Disney songs on NOW That's What I Call Music! new release.  Like I said in my last post regarding volume 44, which was also released on November 6th, from NOW That's What I Call Music!, I love having all these great hits on one CD for a fraction of what I would pay if I paid and downloaded each online.  It will be hard to find a song that you and your family with not enjoy listening to on this and other CDs in this popular series.

If you have plans to drive this holiday season, and are looking for something that will keep everyone in the car entertained, why not pick up a copy of NOW That's What I Call Music! Disney?  You will not have to worry about or be embarrassed by what your child might hear, compared to listening to the car radio..  I know a few friends/family I will be picking up this CD for, as they a huge Disney fans, and would love listening to the hit songs that make up this CD.  Disney fans young and old will love listening to this CD, and it would make for a great addition to their Disney libraries. :-)


The first person to email me and let me know their favorite Disney hit song from this CD, that they would love to listen to, will win a copy of this CD to do just that! :-)  Good luck!
