What parents need to know

Positive messages

These songs may yearn for romance, adventure, or new horizons, but in a way that generally is age-appropriate and non-threatening.

Violence & scariness
Not applicable
Sexy stuff

Sex is not an issue; everything stays very, very benign (think "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," "Kiss The Girl," and "You'll Be In My Heart").

Not applicable

It's hard to ignore that all of the songs are from Disney movies (or Disney theme parks), but their updated arrangements make them sound new and offer a different context.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking
Not applicable

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that these all-ages CDs take hit musical artists (Demi Lovato, Aly and AJ) and have them sing songs from Disney movies ("Cruella De Vil") or Disney theme parks ("It's a Small World After All").

What's the story?

Take some of Disney's movie soundtrack and theme park hits, mix liberally with today's popular artists and some slick production, and what do we get? A series of kid-friendly CDs with music that's very familiar, but somewhat new at the same time.

Is it any good?


The most successful tunes are the ones that go boldly against expectation: the RapMania! Mix version of "It's a Small World After All" by fan_3, for example. Less exciting are the straight-ahead covers. Take "A Whole New World." It starts out prettily enough with a strong Nick Lachey vocal -- until Jessica Simpson's weak, nasal warble floats in -- time to skip to the next track! The other ballads are better performed, but aren't different enough from the original versions to be all that interesting. A thing to note: The songs are ones we've already heard a million times and after a few of the less-than-stellar tunes, you may be asking yourself if we really needed another version?

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the Disney empire. Why do you think that anything that Disney puts out becomes a hit? Is it the talent, the marketing push, or both? Families can also discuss whether their kids prefer these modern versions of the songs, or the originals -- and why.

Why are the crappy Disney channel singers ruining my classic Disney?

Nothing bad, but the singers butcher all the beloved Disney songs.
What other families should know
Too much consumerism
