What parents need to know

Parents need to know that kids will be excited for this duet from Disney's new animated film, Bolt, because it's performed by Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus (and John Travolta). Like the movie, the song is a light-hearted, feel-good ode to friendship.

A great song for a great movie

This song acts as an epilogue for Bolt(2008), but is also really nice on its own! My second favorite "goes-with-a-movie" song.

Really Cute i loved this movie!

What's the story?

I THOUGHT I LOST YOU is the theme song from Disney's new animated movie, Bolt, about a TV show dog who gets lost in New York City and doesn't realize that his made-for-TV powers aren't real. John Travolta provides the voice of Bolt, while teen queen Miley Cyrus co-stars as the voice of Penny. Together they perform on the movie's theme song, an upbeat ditty about realizing the importance of friendship.

Is it any good?

Cyrus and Travolta are both talented singers who blend well on this country-twinged pop track with lots of acoustic guitar and nice harmonies. Travolta even shows up in the video with Cyrus, so he might just win over some Disney-age fans who otherwise would ask their parents, "John who?"

Bolt seems destined to be another bonafide hit for Disney, but no doubt the talent of its stars, as heard in "I Thought I Lost You," will be just one more charge to get tails wagging everywhere. It's sure to get fans electrified for the movie and its little dog wonder, Bolt.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the fact that the artists themselves -- not their animated counterparts -- are featured in the video for this song. How do you feel about the obvious advertising that goes on in relation to movies aimed at younger audiences -- i.e. commercials, merchandise, even merchandise available at restaurants? Is it OK to target kids so young?
