Music Mondays: "There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow"


When General Electric commissioned Walt Disney to produce a show for them at 1964's World Fair, they anticipated getting something that would be uniquely "General Electric". It seemed to be the case at the time, but the years have shown that what they got was uniquely Walt. That's why Mr. Disney was more than happy to move the attraction to his Magic Kingdom of DISNEYLAND.



Walt Disney was always optimistic about the future. He saw today's challenges as things that could be conquered with research, technology and knowledge. That's why his Tomorrowland was always brimming with brightness and positivity.

Whe asked to write a song for this attraction, the Sherman Brothers knew exactly what to do- they wrote a song that was optimistic, positive and hopeful- just like their boss Walt Disney. There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow was not just the theme song of the Carousel of Progress, it was Walt Disney's theme song.



There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow

There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
Shining at the end of every day
There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
And tomorrow's just a dream away

Man has a dream and that's the start
He follows his dream with mind and heart
And when it becomes a reality
It's a dream come true for you and me


So there's a great big beautiful tomorrow
Shining at the end of every day
There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
Just a dream away
