Tribute: Disney Songwriter Robert Sherman

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 3:33 pm

We mourn the passing of Robert Sherman, who, with his brother Richard, wrote some of Disney’s most unforgettable songs, including the Oscar-winning “Mary Poppins” soundtrack and the “It’s a Small World”and “Tiki Room” songs from the theme park attractions.  The rocky relationship of the brothers is the subject of a documentary, The Boys: The Sherman Brothers’ Story, made by their sons in part as an (unsuccessful) effort to get them to reconcile.

This song was said to be Walt Disney’s favorite.  May his memory be a blessing.
