    Default favorite "retired" sounds

    The post on favorite sounds got me thinking...what are your favorite sounds that are no longer there? Can be from a retired attraction or something that changed and now sounds different. For example, the two that come immediately to my mind are the background music from Wonders of Life (specifically the instrumental that I can't name but you'd know it) and of course the manual slamming of monorail doors.

    Others?
    A bad day at DisneyWorld beats a good day...well, just about anywhere

    I miss the Phil Collins "True Colors" song they used to have for the preshow of HISTA. For preshows, I actually liked that one and it's a great song!

    I miss the music from the Main St Electric Light Parade. It was such happy, upbeat music.

    Jack Wagner's monorail spiels and announcements throught WDW.

    Everything Horizons.

    The original EPCOT entrance loop.

    The original "Exit Music" from Illuminations that features the GE Theme music from the Horizons BGM and Small World (in non-annoying arrangement).

    And I will second the sound of manual slamming doors on the monorails - good call!

    My favorite daytime parade music - Remember The Magic - Celebrating 25 Years of The Magic Kingdom.

    Good thread - thanks for getting the memories rolling!

    Thumbs up Great topic!

    Great post. I could list quite a few, but will settle for one.

    I miss so many retired sounds including the song from World of Motion "It's Fun To Be Free", original Imagination soundtrack and song "One Little Spark", Main Street Electrical Parade song, the original boy selling newspapers in Spaceship Earth, "Happy Birthday" being sung to Davey in Horizons, and the music from Captain EO!
    "Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you. But always dress for the hunt!" Kungaloosh!

    I have to agree with Kitchen Cabaret. I had to go to www.youtube.com just to see it again and relive it. I do miss it.
