To be honest, I’m not a cat person. I don’t find them cute and I feel like to press ‘unshare’ button every single time I see someone over-posting about their cats in Path. But this one is the exception. I love these cats! I’m talking about this music video from Disney’s classic ‘The Aristocats’. This movie is under-appreciated among other Disney’s movies – I don’t even recall that I had watched it in full version before – or maybe I haven’t.
This is the review from one blog : The Aristocats may not be in many a top Disney film list, but I believe this film still holds its charm and grace. It may not be the best but it is still easy to fall in love with And being that it was the last film that Walt Disney gave the nod for, it has its key place in history and makes it a must see for anyone who hasn’t seen it. The film is set in 1910 Paris, and is about a mother cat, named Duchess, and her three kittens; Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz. One aspects that lifts the film away from its doggie counterpart is the music, especially the jazzy number ‘Ev’rybody Wants to be a Cat’, from the Oscar winning combination of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, who penned the songs for Mary Poppins. The music is the best part the film, like in most Disney features, and highlights the differences between Duchess’ opera world and the street-smarts of Thomas’ jazz friends.
Anyway, Azka and Khalif were crazy in love with this song that every time they watch/ hear it, they’re always dancing and make me & Papa Ara dancing too…! It’s a good exercise, because they watch it 5 times per day (they’re using their allowance of screen time by watching this video!). It’s hard not too dance when you hear such an uplifting beat of the jazzy tunes in this song:
