The Disney Classics Rate (The End.)

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Animalia, Apr 10, 2017.

  1. Ready for Baby Mine, Someday My Prince Will Come, Bella Note or one of those Aristocat songs to go next.

  2. I'm a sucker for the villain songs, and "Trust In Me" is a perfectly creepy one. (And I, too, enjoy that it's basically Evil Winnie the Pooh.) But I expected this to go early, so oh well.

  6. I warned you guys.


    Scales And Arpeggios


    Highest Score: 9 x3 (@iheartpoptarts, @constantino, @Aester)
    Lowest Score: 0 x1 (@DJHazey)

    My Score: 5.5

    Ah, and here we see the first of many obstacles in Hazey and poptarts’ famous allegiance, and that obstacle is… kittens? Who knew. After the first few Pokémon rates, I kinda expected this to fare a bit better off the back of its unbearable cuteness, but here we are taking our first dip into Disney’s Bronze Age, with The Aristocats being the last film Walt Disney himself gave the green light before passing away in 1966. It was a difficult time for the studio, rife with internal conflict and all sorts of issues, as a result of which the Sherman Brothers left on bad terms and most of their songs for The Aristocats were scrapped. The jazzy title track (which I didn’t know existed until now nn sorry) and Scales and Arpeggios were the only survivors, and here we are casting it into the fiery pit within the first ten cuts. Oops. The scene itself is adorable enough, but lord if the song’s not a bit of a screechy racket out of context. I suppose the kittens’ clumsy vocals are meant to be part of the song’s charm, but honestly Duchess should’ve just kept ‘em locked up and given herself an iconic solo.

    Apparently Eva Gabor couldn’t sing for shit though, so she roped in Robie Lester to fill in for her when it came to Duchess’ singing voice. Wikipedia tells me Lester was a Grammy-nominated legend of the 60s TV commercial world, but it also tells me that her autobiography was titled Lingerie For Hookers In The Snow: An Audiography of a Voice Artist, which I’m sure you’ll agree is far more interesting. Queen.

    It seems most of you might as well have watched the video on mute, and no one would’ve blamed you. Reboot opens up with a rallying call of “I LOVE CATS.”, and constantino answers in turn: “I LOVE CATS SO MUCH THIS IS ADORABLE.”, as do MollieSwift21: “The majority of the points here are for them being cats”, eccentricsimply: “Adorable”, iheartpoptarts: “Bonus marks for cuteness.” and Weslicious: “The kittens are cute as hell, but this is too close to kids singing which is actual hell!”. Yeesh, we’re a few Minion memes away from an embarrassing mom Facebook group. Save us DJHazey! “I didn’t come here for infant-pop. BE GONE BEAST!” Wait... who are you and what have you done with Hazey? GhettoPrincess backs you up with a swift “Ouch” though, and LKane isn’t feeling it either: “This is a cute song, but that’s all. Nothing interesting in particular I think.”

    Sprockrooster brings up the question I was dreading: “No idea what arpeggios are, but I’m bopping nonetheless. Kind of forgot how the Dutch version goes.” Uh… my music theory is atrocious, so I’ll let someone else give a better (read: correct) answer. “Not really that compelling overall,” Raichu notes, “but its cuteness works in its favour. Mama cat’s harmonies add a nice touch.” As nice as a hookers’ lingerie in the snow though? I doubt it. kalonite is super proud of the ~hilarious~ pun he came up with for this, but I’ll let you guys be the judges of that. Here it is… y’all ready? … *drum roll* … “Arpeggi-no.” … yeah. Just be grateful you guys don’t have to live with him. Finally, Mina points out an unlikely similarity: “Parts of this sound uncannily like the Arthur classic Crazy Bus. *takes a dance break* When is the Arthur rate happening?” We’re swiftly running out of things to rate teebs so it probably won’t be too long.

  7. Yeah, good choice. It's cute. It's also BORING. (Hey, appropriate for the film then!)

    (Arpeggio: A technique where the notes that comprise a chord are played individually, also called "broken chords". Never let it be said that I do nothing for you @Sprockrooster .)

    I have a stuffed toy and a sweater from one of the cats from Aristocats because we share a name nñn, but I don't care much for that movie.

  10. Oh and I love cats, but it wasn't going to help my score for that.

    At this point I'm just happy I don't expect my 11 to win anyway.

  15. @eccentricsimply helping a fellow Brazilian out with the appropriate animal cruelty, I see.

    Also, for some reason I have this crazy random notion that your name is Sara. Is that a character in The Aristocats? I wouldn't know.

  16. I'm guessing her name is Marie.

    Maria though, cause Marie is the French version.

    I'm still recovering from the Swish Swish gif. I gave out so many low scores in this rate, maybe I should get a villain avatar.
  19. Just trying to think who we don't have yet... A-HA! Hades!

    (Or you can take over Gaston, I'm probably gonna retire him in favour of someone else.)
