Like most Disney classics, The Jungle Book () has a lot of memorable songs . The were written by Robert B. Sherman, Richard M. Sherman, and Terry. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Cassette release of The Jungle Book 2 (Songs From The Film And Other Jungle Favourites) on Discogs. The latest incarnation of The Jungle Book is an attempt to sew together two very different types of movies, and the fit isn't always the snuggest.
It annoys Bagheera, because he only wants to sleep in. And, the elephants later inadvertently stop Shere Khan from catching a deer. It's even revealed that the elephants, themselves don't like it, since Winifred says that it hurts her feet. I admit, this song has a nice beat to it, and it makes me want to get up and march along with the elephants I should know, since I was in marching band.
So, while Colonel Hathi's herd might not enjoy this March, I sure do! You've still got friends. The vultures in this movie remind me very much of the crows from Dumbo; they make fun of our main character at first, but, after hearing about his predicament, they try to cheer him up.
Poor Mowgli feels rejected because he thinks that Baloo and Bagheera are trying to just kick him out of the jungle just because they don't want him around which, we all know, isn't the case , and Kaa had tried a second time to eat him. So, now, he thinks that he doesn't have any friends. But, then come Buzzie, Dizzy, Flaps, and Ziggy to prove otherwise.
They make a very good point in this song: you may feel rejected and alone sometimes, but, at the end of the day, we do have friends who come around to cheer us up.
This song also has a nice, campy, Beatles-like tune to it which is interesting, since the vultures look like the Beatles. But, still this song has a catchy tune, and has a good message.
Now, this is a very chilling song, indeed! Mowgli learned from his last encounter with the sneaky snake about what he's really like, but, Kaa attempts to prove otherwise.
He offers Mowgli a chance to stay in the jungle, and begins to hypnotize him. The melody of this song perfectly fits Kaa's character, since it sounds like something a snake charmer would play. Besides, this song gives kids a perfect example of why they should be wary of strangers: They pretend to be your friend, but, in reality, they just want to take advantage of you, like how Kaa wants to trick Mowgli so that he can eat him.
And, guess who inadvertently ends up saving Mowgli? Shere Khan, who wants Mowgli dead to begin with. So, this song is chilling, and perfect for a guy like Kaa.
And, you know what? That's exactly what it is!
Both songs are sung by characters who serve as the comic relief, and they're both about relaxing and having fun instead of constantly worrying. Baloo is trying to teach Mowgli to live the care free life of a bear, like eating ants and fruit, and scratching your back against trees, and Mowgli is following Baloo's example, since he really wants to stay in the jungle instead of going to the man village.
This song has a really nice, bouncy melody to it, and was so popular that it was used as the theme song for Jungle Cubs.
The Mighty Hunters
Longtime Disney collaborator Terry Gilkyson was brought in to write the songs for the film. Gilkyson delivered several complete songs which were faithful in tone to Rudyard Kipling 's novel , but Walt Disney felt that his efforts were too dark.
The Sherman Brothers were brought in to do a complete rewrite, on the condition that they not read Kipling's book. The only piece of Gilkyson's work which survived to the final film was his upbeat tune " The Bare Necessities ", which was liked by the rest of the film crew.
The duo decided to do songs that fit in the story and advanced the plot instead of being interruptive. The song " Trust in Me " is based upon a song entitled " Land of Sand " which had been written by the Sherman Brothers for, but not used in, Mary Poppins. The vultures were even designed based on The Beatles , with moptop haircuts and Liverpudlian accents, and would be voiced by the band, which did not come into fruition due to problems with their schedule.
During production Disney decided the 60's style rock would cause the song to be considered dated later, leading "We're Your Friends" to be changed to the barbershop quartet that appears in the film. It featured a retelling of the story with narration by voice actor Dal McKennon as Bagheera , and dialogue and sound effects from the film itself along with the songs.
Disney Records reissued the soundtrack in , coinciding with the reissue of the film on VHS to celebrate its 30th anniversary. The soundtrack marked the first time a majority of George Bruns ' instrumental score was included.

Shere Khan, who wants Mowgli dead to begin with. These two disparate parts are, one suspects, more an economic convenience than a storytelling one, and it turns the movie into an odd beast: The duo decided to do songs that fit in the story and advanced the plot instead of being interruptive. Favreau is an underrated big-budget filmmaker; he can handle the spectacle of a blockbuster while still infusing it with needed wit and bounce.
