Exploring the history of the groove

“The silly song” by jimmie dodd and the mousketeers, “i’m wishing” by Darlene gillespie

These two songs are from the movie “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”. “The Silly Song” is sung by the mouseketeers, members of the Mickey Mouse Club. You can hear the different voices throughout the song. While listening to this song, I heard the reference to Grumpy, one of the dwarves. I thought it was just a reference,but after doing further research I learned the two songs on this record were actually from the movie. The second song, “I’m Wishing” sung by Darlene Faye Gillespie, is really what made my decision for this project. The movie is one of my favorite Disney movies, during my research I learned that Darlene was the leading female singer and dancer on the show from 1955 to 1959. Darlene not only sang songs but also narrated some animated films, Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty are two. Around 1975, she created her own recording company, Alva Records and released country songs under the name of Darlene Valentine.
