Part of the Song a Day Project! Also part of Transformative Songs Week!

So hey, it's the March Drive at the OTW, and this seemed like a good time to feature some transformative works as songs!

I really love this remix — it's unexpected (especially in terms of historical periods associated with the source material versus the remix), it gives a new way of looking at the source material, it builds something unique and lovely out of existing cultural output.

But one of the other reasons I wanted to feature this work is that Disney is pretty much one of the biggest reasons that copyright law is the way it is in the US. So here's for pondering: the juxtaposition between this lovely transformative work, and the sociopolitical context in which it's made.

Transformative works are legitimate. And beautiful. And that is one reason why I support the OTW.
