Disney Song #21: Feed the Birds

To Listen: Click Here

The Facts:
  • Composers: Richard and Robert Sherman
  • Year: 1964
  • Key: E Minor / F# Major 

Heard In: 
Mary Poppins

Our 5th Mary Poppins and 10th Sherman Brothers selection, and this one's an all-timer.  It's the emotional core of the movie (symbolizing charity and caring for others), and it was reputed to be Walt Disney's favorite song.  The story goes that he would ask the Sherman Brothers to come into his office and play it for him while he would look out the window, lost in thought.  It occurred to me that I still haven't seen "Saving Mr. Banks" yet about the creation go Mary Poppins, so I will rectify that over the holidays.
