Music Mondays: "Someday My Prince Will Come"

It doesn't seem like it now, but the success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was not always guaranteed. Many in Hollywood predicted that the film would be a catastrophic failure that would bankrupt Walt Disney Productions. Mr. Disney and Snow White had the last laugh, however, as the film brought in unprecedented reviews and profits.

Unbelievably, the beloved songs from the film won nothing at the Oscars that year, but history proved that the songs from Snow White would become classics, far outliving the actual nominees.

One of the most memorable songs was Someday My Prince Will Come. It was a hopeful song that expressed Snow White's wishes that things would get better for her.

Some day my prince will come
Some day we'll meet again
And away to his castle we'll go
To be happy forever I know 

Some day when spring is here
We'll find our love anew
And the birds will sing
And wedding bells will ring
Some day when my dreams come true

Performed by Adriana Caselotti, the song became a legendary classic, still beloved by adults and children alike. One of the best covers of the song was performed by En Vogue on the 1991 album Simply Mad about the Mouse.
