Sounds Like Theme Spirit


Look, you’re just going to have to accept that for as long as I’m doing this column, you’re going to get a Disneyland website every so often. I love the place the same way you love nightclubs, minus the Rohypnol. This time out, it’s Theme Park Audio Archives, a site that collects the soundtrack elements from Disneyland attractions both past and present, along with some tracks from other, lesser theme parks, like everything Disney has in Florida. (Oh yes, I went there.) I don’t expect anyone but a true theme-park geek—or a “themepunk,” as I’d rather you call me behind my back—to get excited for the original soundtrack to Disneyland’s Enchanted Tiki Room, the sound effects and music from the Haunted Mansion, or Paul Frees’ narration from the trippy (and sadly, defunct) Adventure Thru Inner Space. But if you’re one of those, this site is intended for you. Just make some of these into ringtones and notification sounds, so that when we’re out in public and we get a text, we’ll recognize each other as kindred spirits.
