6. BOOKS: The Disney Song Encyclopedia by Thomas Hischak and Mark A. Robinson
You don't have to be a Disney über fan to enjoy an afternoon with the Disney Song Encyclopedia. The latest edition of this book is chock full of fun facts: Did you know that Steven Sondheim wrote the jazzy "More" for Dick Tracy (1990), memorably sung in the trailer by Madonna? Also, Disney has it's own version of the birthday song, titled "Happy, Happy Birthday" written in 1983 to avoid dealing with the copyright issues that occur with the song, "Happy Birthday" that most people sing when it's time to blow out the candles. Above, Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid; on the home page, Prince Ferdinand from Snow White.
