This was really fun. I'd love to do it with more Disney songs, not just Oscar ones :)
Nov 12th, 2011 at 11:23 GMT
I thought 151/202 was a good score, but it puts me in the 18th percentile. You people *really* know your Disney songs!
Nov 12th, 2011 at 13:05 GMT
Well Tahnan I imagine the first 25 people who play such a quiz are the people who are going to kick ass on it.
Nov 14th, 2011 at 21:49 GMT
the description said five of six movies released between '89 and '95 won the song oscar. i'm curious: what's the sixth movie that didn't win? (i'm sure i should know this, since those were my prime disney-watching years.)
Nov 15th, 2011 at 00:34 GMT
@courtneyyy - I'm pretty sure that's The Rescuers Down Under.
Nov 15th, 2011 at 04:08 GMT
ah, that seems about right. the lack of super-awesome music in that one would explain why it slipped my mind.
Nov 15th, 2011 at 13:55 GMT
Yup, Rescuers Down Under came out in 1990.
Nov 15th, 2011 at 15:48 GMT
I love this quiz. Please make another.
Nov 15th, 2011 at 19:27 GMT
I'm pretty sure the first line of "A Whole New World" is "I can show you
world." If you listen to it, he clearly says "the." It doesn't make much difference in playing, but still, for the sake of being accurate.
Another fun fact: Alan Menken was nominated for Best Score for every single Disney animated movie he did in the '90s. He won most of them.
Nov 15th, 2011 at 19:58 GMT
@imclala, you are correct.
By the way, I would have included Tarzan's "You'll Be In My Heart" on this quiz if I had a sixth column to work with, because that was the last Disney song to win an Oscar. At least for classic animation. Pixar has won it twice for Monsters Inc and Toy Story 3.
Nov 16th, 2011 at 23:24 GMT
I'm a bit relieved I'm not the only one who knows all these lyrics
Dec 2nd, 2011 at 03:21 GMT
I like the inclusion of Pumbaa's commentary while Timon is singing.

I absolutely LOVE this quiz! Unfortunately, I'm a slow typist, so it felt like a "blitz" to me. One more minute (or so), and I think I could have had pretty much every word.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 18:24 GMT
I had fun playing this quiz. But one thing, I thought Colors of the Wind started with the line "you think I'm an ignorant savage." Maybe that's just the CD version? Out of all these movies, I've seen Pocahontas the least, so correct me if I'm wrong.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 18:33 GMT
The introduction to Can You Feel the Love Tonight is used instead of the actual first verse. But for Colors of the Wind, the intro is skipped and goes straight to the first verse. It's just inconsistent about what it is asking for.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 19:03 GMT
Fun quiz, but the versions which won the Oscar are the versions which are played at the end credits (in B&B LK, Aladdin, and Poca) not in the movie itself. This technically make the whole Lion King entry incorrect as the Elton John version should be here.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 19:35 GMT
Wow am I humbled. Maybe if it was refrains, or later verses, or... The Gaston Song. I'm extremely good at expectorating.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 20:38 GMT
The first verse is completely wrong on Can You Feel The Love Tonight (The Timon/Poombah back and forth is not a part of the song), And the First verse of Colors of the Wind skips the first few lines "You think I'm an ignorant savage, and you've been so many places I guess it must be so. But still I cannot see if the savage one is me. How can there be so much that you don't know? You don't know."...Maybe double checking your quizzes before contributing them would help.
Feb 2nd, 2012 at 21:47 GMT
No, I'll accept the Can You Feel The Night starting. Timone does sing the tune (tries to) in his complaint at the beginning of the song.

Shouldn't it be 'there'll be no accusations, only friendly crustaceans under the sea'?

I am boycotting Disney in protest over its culpability in pushing for ever-increasing durations of copyright protection, the so-called “Mickey Mouse laws” which now last 70 years after the death of the author, or 95 years after publication for corporate works. The optimal length is much closer to the original U.S. law, with a 14 year term and the option to extend for a second 14 years. The second 14 year terms should only be for commercial use, with non-commercial use freely permitted after the first 14 years.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 00:14 GMT
@Qaanol: However you feel about 28 years of copyright protection in terms of encouraging innovation, it would be intensely impractical. First of all, the old US law (1909 Act) required an incredibly complex set of registration formalities which made it very difficult to receive protection and required extra formalities for renewal. Such formalities are a violation of the Berne Convention, which the US joined in 1989. Further, every other IP net-exporting country in the world has a term of life of the author plus 70 years. It would sell US works incredibly short to protect them for only 28 years and would engender poor trade relations with other countries, who want their works protected in the US. I agree 95 years is long, but in the US, where we have amazing fair use protection, it just isn't really an issue and would be too hard to change.

P.S. "Beauty and the Beast" is one of my favorite songs! I can hear Angela Lansbury in my head :)
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 02:03 GMT
Yet another reason why the late 80's-early 90's was the golden age to be born.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 02:20 GMT
I'm fairly sure watching Disney movies extensively from an early age greatly widened my vocabulary. Where else would I have learned the word "expectorating"?
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 02:28 GMT
Got every word right.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 03:05 GMT
excellent quiz. I loved this. Good memories!
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 04:01 GMT
got 4 out of the 5 songs completely filled in.. wish i wouldve watched pocahontas more than a couple times...
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 04:34 GMT
Pocahontas threw me. I watched the clip from the movie that was at the front of the Lion King VHS tape about a thousand times, but I only saw Pocahontas maybe once, and what's in the "music video" I guess you could say starts with "You think you own whatever land you land on..." I wonder if this quiz takes into account the lyrics for the actual song that AMPAS considered, or what was in the movie. I suspect there may be a difference there, and may clarify some of the issues people are having w/ intro vs. first verse lyrics.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 08:35 GMT
@laschmela yes I thought Colours of the Wind started with "you think you own whatever land you land on, the earth is just a dead thing you can claim etc." too.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 11:15 GMT
After seeing these comments, I'm trying to work out whether Sporclers are more passionate about Kyrgyzstan or Disney.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 14:08 GMT
Does Under the Sea really say "What more is you looking for?" That's a shame.
Feb 3rd, 2012 at 17:09 GMT
While I love this quiz, I have to say that the "correct answers" for Can You Feel The Love Tonight are in fact incorrect. What's given isn't even in the actual song.
Feb 5th, 2012 at 03:59 GMT
Yeah, please don't call this quiz "Oscar-winning" songs if you're using the lyrics straight out of the movie, and not the version of the song that actually won the Oscar.
Feb 6th, 2012 at 05:35 GMT
I would love a sequel with more disney songs! They don't have to have won some silly award. They're all wonderful :)
Feb 7th, 2012 at 00:41 GMT
@laschmela: I was about to get angry before I started reading the comments and figured out that I was wrong! I've seen Pocahontas, but could only remember the part that I had seen on the Lion King VHS, since that's what I always watched as a kid! haha
Feb 17th, 2012 at 20:39 GMT
I wouldn't have expected that to be the first verse of Colors of the Wind either...
Jun 23rd, 2012 at 08:07 GMT
Can You Feel the Love Tonight threw me off. I was expecting the actual first verse of the Elton John song instead of Timon and Pumbaa's intro. John actually came to out university for Mom's Weekend one year; he didn't sing this song, though.
Feb 11th, 2013 at 20:44 GMT
I love that you started with Timon and Pumbaa's intro -- my little sister and I sang it all the time when we were little (I was Timon and she was Pumbaa).
Mar 10th, 2013 at 14:50 GMT
@DanUK: no, i'm not sure either, but Sporclers don't tend to complain if Kyrgyzstan is used in the wrong context...
