Once Upon An… Apocalypse?

As another audio assignment from the assignment bank, I completed one that incorporates Disney and the apocalypse! I was immediately drawn to this assignment due to the fact that it had to do with Disney. Who isn’t excited by that?

So what did I have to do? Well, I needed to compile a recording that includes different Disney lyrics that are then put together to tell a story. This was definitely a challenge. For one thing, I haven’t watched a Disney movie in quite a while. However, if anyone asks Cinderella is my favorite.

The songs I used are as follows:

  1. “Let it Go” from Frozen 
  2. “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid
  3. “Be Prepared” from The Lion King
  4. “In the Dark” of the Night from Anastasia
  5. “Savages” from Pocahontas
  6. “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan
  7. “Hakuna Matata” from The Lion King

The recording I ended up with in the end slightly reminded me of the movie I watched as an intro to video, The Road. It reminded me so much of this because the lyrics from “Let it Go” reminded me of how desolate and empty the world was for the man and the boy. I also felt that the song and the description of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” fit the man and the boy pretty well. They had nothing left except for each other. The rest of the lyrics from the other songs feel as though they fit The Road too because they had to protect one another and probably felt like this was all just one big nightmare. Let me know if you agree!

(I apologize for any choppiness in my recording. I could only cut so much without cutting too much.)


As I said above, I love Disney so much. I knew I wanted to do this assignment, but at the beginning, I was worried I would never be able to pull this assignment, of four stars, off, especially if I needed to relate it back to the apocalypse. After looking at some of my classmate’s submissions, I realized how I could do it! I went to YouTube and typed in “disney villain songs.” I got videos after videos, and even some playlists. I listened to and watched quite a few clips of Disney songs, and when I found a line I liked, I made sure to save the video. Then, I went to 4K Video Downloader, and downloaded the audio from each video. From there, I edited all of the music together in Audacity and once I was finished, I played it back and I really liked what the end result was/is. I also like the last clip of audio in my recording from “Hakuna Matata” in which Simba says, “Oh well… Hakuna Matata.” I just feel like that line sums up what people might feel during the apocalypse if they’ve had enough and have to stop worrying. What do you think? Let me know!
