iTunes Review

Disney reached new heights in 1989 with a soundtrack for an animated movie that had both kids and parents singing along. Alan Menken’s masterful compositions and lively lyrics make all the difference, but they’re helped by the big voice of Jodi Benson belting outcast anthem “Part of Your World” as Ariel the mermaid. The deliciously devilish “Les Poissons” is another standout, while a crustacean band and calypso beats add to the fun on tracks like “Kiss the Girl” and the GRAMMY®-winning “Under the Sea.”

Great, except the 5 songs

I love the Litle Mermaid, but these Disney Channel Stars need to stop wrecking classics.

I heart the Little Mermaid, but I'm a purist. I don't mind the added tracks but I love the original recordings. I don't like Jessica Simpson's version of Part of Your World, but that's mostly because I don't particularly like her voice. I'd buy this soundtrack for the original recordings, especially Kiss The Girl, which was much better originally (the cover isn't bad but the original is way better), and not the new fluffy covers Disney seems to be pumping out by the sackful.


i love most of the songs but the songs by the other artists and bands (Ashley Tisdale, Jonas Bros, etx.) turn it into something thats not my piece of cake... NOT TO BE MEAN!!!!!!

Menken is a graduate of New York University and got his start when noted playwright Howard Ashman chose him and Lehman Engel to write the music for his 1978 adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater. Menken and Ashman had major success...
