Originally posted by Reverend J ShaftI just participated in a friend's podcast where they ask people a movie-themed question each time and I thought the one that I was asked was a good one for the Ws here.
My answer was "I Wanna Be Like You" from The Jungle Book. The scene where it is sung is one of my favorites and I just love the jazzy, be-bop vibe of it.
Louis Prima KILLS as King Louie in the Jungle Book - you have got to love "The Bear Necessities" from the same movie too.
And "Kiss the Girl" was played as the backing track to a video of my wife & I at our Rehearsal Dinner so that has a special spot too.

The correct answer is "When I See an Elephant Fly" from Dumbo...
While I would not use the same tone as you (you did see that some of the choices came from Bambi and Jungle Book right?) , I agree with your choice. Love that song.
Honorable mentions to Hakuna Matata and Bear Necessities.

Dang, I don't know how I managed to mention "The Nutcracker Suite" from Fantasia and didn't mention the iconic "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". There is nothing about that scene that isn't epic and pitch-perfect.

See, I used to think the same thing. However, since widescreen is going to be the next TV I get, I will only get widescreen movies from now on in anticipation. I've really come to prefer the widescreen view anymore, too.
