"Okay, I must admit that I was somewhat obsessed with this soundtrack when I was a kid. I actually owned the original soundtrack on tape, and I listened to it so much that I wore the tape out and had to buy a new one. The songs are hip, fun, and just generally enjoyable. Plus, this was one of the first Disney films to use an all-star singing cast, including great performances by Billy Joel, Huey Lewis, and Bette Midler. The songs on this soundtrack still hold a special place in my heart, especially "Why Should I Worry." Check it out! I guarantee if you're a Disney fan, you'll enjoy it."

"Catchy songs by great artists. Streets of Gold, Once upon A Time (In New York City, and Why Should I Worry are definetly the best. Perfect for dancing around the house or even spring cleaning!"
Only for a diehard collector

"Another Disney Soundtrack CD with some star names doing rare songs to draw a collector in. I'm not a fan of Disney music, but I had to have the song by Ruth Pointer being a major Pointer Sisters fan. STREETS OF GOLD is really a pretty good song . Same could be said for the Billy Joel song, and the Huey Lewis song isn't bad. But Bette Midler's is a sickeningly sappy piece of Broadway schtick where Bette lays on the sweetness so heavy it made me get my soundtrack to THE ROSE out as an antidote. It's such schmaltz that made me cringe listening to this awfully bad song. Bette even tries to approxmate sound effects during this song " produced " by Barry Manilow. Fittingly, it's followed by a song sung by a young girl, and at least she's of age for such sweet sappy songs. The fantasy world of Disney music isn't my cup of tea."
