TED: Dolby + Garniez play “La Vie en Rose”

4 Feb

In honor of Pixar’s 25th anniversary this week, may I suggest listening to this lovely rendition of La Vie en Rose by Thomas Dolby and Rachelle Garniez, from TED 2004? The handbells are almost as delightful as her voice.

Wishery (Disney Remix) by Pogo

11 Jan

How have I not heard this before? Pogo‘s remixed Snow White audio and video into a enchanting electro-trance that I could listen to all day.

Hat tip to Geoff Carter, who posted a more recent (and non-Disney) pogo on FB today.
