Dirty Disney’s Broadway Demo

Dirty Disney.

There’s a lot of it. Hidden away in subtle little corners of their musical walls. I’ll be talking more about it as time passes.

This is just a little gem I discovered a few years ago. It was a song written for the workshop of The Little Mermaid’s Broadway run. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, it did not make the final cut. Menken did use this song, however, as the basis on which he created Tangled’s “Mother Knows Best.”

Why do I feel this song is blog worthy? Because it has sneaky little lyrics about parties that “dwindle down until you’re unconscious on the bathroom floor” and “handsome Romeos” that go “bald on top and soft below.”

Not kidding.

Listen yourself if you don’t believe me.
