Beauty and the Beast (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture)

Building on the success of The Little Mermaid, composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman reteam to tell a fantastical love story through song, complete with dancing dinnerware. “Belle” sets the scene in Broadway style, while the boastful “Gaston” is goofily great, and Angela Lansbury’s voice easily lends itself to an animated character. Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson bring their star power to the title track, providing a swoon-worthy radio single that easily stands on its own.
Great album, but...
All of these are wonderful tracks from one the best animated movies of all-time. However, the version of "Beauty and the Beast" done by Jordin Sparks is truly terrible. This song is best left as a ballad and to try to make it anything else is nothing short of a crime against everything represented in this timeless tale.
Disney is Amazing!!!!!!
this brought back what disney classics really meant. i love it. jordin sparks voice is simply amazing!
