Do Disney soundtracks count as “show tunes”? Thanks to the 40th anniversy of a certain film I can’t name (Mary Poppins) I just bought my third copy of the aforemention unmentionalble film’s (Mary Poppins) soundtrack. Damn you Disney! I hope it’s not, technically, considered “show tunes.” I’d hate being a cliche. Although, I do LOVE Barbara (Eden, of course).

Julie Andrews singing on a soundtrack definitely qualifies in the “show tunes” category.

That you now have three copies of it puts you squarely in that camp.

I hate to argue that the Mary Poppins soundtrack does not fall into the showtunes category, but I want to. Because it is not a Brodway thing! But I completely understand how showtuney it is.


Or not! I think Mary Poppins is so much better than most any showtuney show out there. Except Sweeney Todd, which I don’t consider showtuney anyway.

Can you tell my thought process is poor today? I’m making no sense! Just enjoy your fourth version of the CD and SING ALONG!

OK, let’s get this straight: ANYTHING with Julie Andrews or Angela Lansbury singing qualifies as “showtunes.” And without any doubt, any score by Sondheim is tres gay, so … just enjoy it.

Even Angela on the “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” soundtrack…
