♪Overcome – Music Themes

This week Lisa chose “Overcome” as our theme. This topic transitions beautifully from last week’s “All Guitar”. I would like to explore the Mississippi Delta blues further, since that genre of music was born from overcoming the sadness & misery of slavery, prejudice, discrimination, hatred, bigotry, injustice, cruelty and segregation of that era.

“Once Upon a Dream” is a song based on Tchaikovsky’s homonymous ballet “The Sleeping Beauty”, more specifically the piece “Grande valse villageoise (a.k.a. The Garland Waltz)”, that was written in 1959 for the animated musical fantasy film Sleeping Beauty produced by Walt Disney and based on La Belle au bois dormant by Charles Perrault and based also on Little Briar Rose by The Brothers Grimm. It’s the theme of Princess Aurora and Prince Philip and was performed by a Chorus as an overture and third-reprise finale. Mary Costa and Bill Shirley, who were cast in the roles of Princess Aurora and Prince Philip, performed the song as a duet. American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey released a cover version of the song “Once Upon a Dream” in 2014. It was recorded for the 2014 dark fantasy film Maleficent.
