This week’s Music Moves Me Monday blog hop is a freebie. With no theme to follow, I’m free to share any music I wish. I generally play along regularly on my other blog…but this week, I’m doing it Disney style.
Lately, I’ve been infatuated with two of Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men…Frank Thomas and Oliver Johnston.
As I watched the Frank and Ollie documentary for the fourth time this week, I ended up over in the Bonus Features where I found performances by the Firehouse Five Plus Two.
Frank and several other Disney employees formed the band in the 1940s after jamming together for kicks on their lunch breaks.
I loved their snappy, jazzy sound and instantly became curious about them. I wanted to hear more of their music so I went over to iTunes and sampled numerous Firehouse tunes there.
I decided to purchase a Firehouse song for my MMMM submission. It’s called “Milenburg Joys”.
Vacation photos accompany the music and were taken between November 1975 and February 2010. Each photo contains at least one popular Disney character.
