Lady And The Tramp (Soundtrack)
by Peggy Lee
Released: Sep 1997
Label: Walt Disney
Not only does Lady & the Tramp completely rule, but it also contains a number of fine songs written by the legendary Peggy Lee (the highlight is her own performance of "What a Dog/He's a Tramp"). Today's sensibilities are not too tight with "Siamese Cat Song" but it is such a freaky number that any shouts of racism are almost nullified. Sad but true: Peggy Lee was never properly paid for her work, and she had a protracted legal battle with the Walt Disney Corporation that she eventually won. Bonus: the movie features the most romantic dinner sequence in cinematic history.
