Old School Friday #66 " Outside My Box…"

Friday, Friday, Friday!!
The Week was short but it felt long!! I love Fridays because I get to travel all over the web listening to great music posted by my blogging friends for Old School Friday!
Today’s theme is explained as this:

Every once and a while it’s time to try something new and different, the theme of the Week is, “Outside My Box”. It’s time to showcase things that are not normal for you. Things people wouldn’t believe that you’d listen, too…

Now, for me this theme is a little difficult because I think my OSF buddies who have been here since the beginning can agree that have shown them my inside, outside, under and over the box!! I have shown my love for rock music with Queen & Aerosmith. I have shown my love for country with John Denver. I have shown my love for old school with Marvin, Marvin & more Marvin! I have shown my love for political justice/outcry with Gill Scott Heron & Miriam Makeba and I have shown my love for the 90’s with New Edition (I will still fight Marva over Ronnie!). I have even shown my love for Big Band/Swing music with Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller & Tommy Dorsey!

I have posted everything from country, to jazz, to gospel, so I had to dig very deep for something that I have not revealed to my OSFers. And I finally came up with something! When my children were younger we watched a LOT of movies (and we still do!). I still have almost every Disney & Pixar movie every made. A big part of these movie’s charm was the songs/music. So that is my OSF selection, a few of my animated favorites! And yes DO BELIEVE that I still watch animated “kid” movies! No Shame in my Game! I doubt that ANYBODY posted anything like this!!!
I am very interested to see what my fellow OSF participants post with this theme.

    Happy OSF! I enjoy animated movies as well. In fact, the Nemo movie is one of my favorites of all time. My kids and I used to sing many of the Lion King songs when they were truly young ‘uns! I invite your blog readers to see my choice for an out of the box artist who resides in my village iPod…peace, Villager

    That’s in my box, too, only because I have 2 and 4 year old and their Uncle gave them Jungle Book for Christmas…I remember Aristocats, too. I watched cartoons until I was 23.Happy OSF, I can’t believe we are at #66. Wow 66 weeks straight…and I don’t remember you missing a one.

    What an absolutely EXCELLENT choice for this theme! I too love Disney movies and have for over 50 years and the music is so much a part of the Disney magic!My favorite song of all time is still “When You Wish Upon A Star” sung by “Jiminy Cricket” and Disney has never disappointed with their musical scores in the decades since I first heard that song.Great choice and I wish I would have thought of that instead of going so far outside my box (that I might never get back in!) with POLKA, lol.

    “The Aristocats” is one of my favorite movies ever. I know the entire soundtrack and I have no children. My parents took me to the movie theater to see it and I loved it then and I love it now. My favorite character is Thomas O’Malley, the alley cat.
