Drunken Disney Songs

In one interview ages ago (can't find it now I'm afraid to say but take my word for it) Frank said that in fact knows a fair few Disney songs on guitar and, with a little alcohol and persuasion, on the occasion, will play them.

So y'know one thing that's awesome? Disney films. Y'know another thing that is awesome? Frank playing guitar. Put them together and you have something in equal parts hilarious and amazing.

I call out to everyone in hope - does anyone possess any videos or recordings of any sort, of this? Cause it'd be great if they were uncovered! (If Frank doesn't mind and isn't too embarrassed of course :lol: )

Ha, I'm chuckling about this, because in my younger days, my friends and I would drink and invent dirty lyrics to Disney songs. As I remember (at the time), they were pretty clever. Some classics were "Heigh-Ho," "Chim-chimeny," "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo."

He did Noel Coward cover - it's on The Third Three Years, although not terribly punk

Yes indeed, I think it is a terrific cover. Very clever writing. I grew up with these sort of songs, listening to them on my Mum's wind up gramophone. I kid you not.
I rather like to think if she was still alive she too would be a Frank fan.
Coward was a friend of my Uncle, long weird story.

I LOVE that song! I didn't check the setlist properly when I listened to Third Three Years for the first time and thought this song might either be a cover from someone like Billy Bragg or written by Frank himself. I'm German and had no idea who Noel Coward, so that's my excuse :D But seriously, when I look Coward up and heard the song from the 50s I was blown away, how different Frank's version was, but how the song still felt perfect for the 21st century (politics, society, whatever...)

On a more shallow note: Whenever I listen to the song an try to sing along, I'm wondering how many "takes" Frank had to do for this song without stumbling over some of the lyrics. So many words at such speed! Amazing...

I asked the same question actually. I don't remember the answer, but he did say there is no chance of him playing it live.

Ha! Spoil sport.
Anyway, back to those drunken Disney songs?

Well he certainly used to know Colours of The Wind and I reckon that'd be pretty magical.
