Yes, I can be a grump at times, but as I was sitting here doing some "real" work, my wife put on her Disney Playlist on the iPod and was blasting it through our Apple iPod Speakers.
Then came the song that I titled this blog after....
There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you
You need to realize that I do not normally listen to soundtracks, but for some reason I make an exception for soundtracks related to Disney Movies. I wore out the soundtrack for the first two Pirates of the Caribbean movies. My wife loved Disney movie soundtracks so much that she insisted that I make a playlist for it so she could easily listen to them.
Yes, this song is deemed cheesy by some, as well as, many of the Tim Rice/Elton John collaborations but this song holds a special place in my heart.
I had fallen in love with this song and the entire Lion King soundtrack way before I ever saw the Lion King movie.
This song was, by far, my favorite and I consider highly instrumental in pulling me out of my straight-men-don't-like-Disney phase.
Who would've though that a gay Grammy winner would be responsible for making me comfortable enough with my manhood to proclaim from the rooftops that a Disney life is the life for me and anything else is just grumptastic!
