Megan from Stevenson, AlHAAA!!! Since I have last commented, me and my best friend have made up our own African chants at the beginning and IT IS AMAZING!
Megan from Stevenson, AlBack when VCR's were big, I tore The Lion King up! lol Just because of this song! He's amazing! Ha! My high school concert band played this for our Spring Concert and it was completely awesome! The trumpet music was super hard...but it was worth it tho:)
Michael Scott from Punta Gorda, FlI thought back when Vice-President Albert Gore was campaigning for President that this would have been a good theme song for him to get the crowd inspired. I remember when Gov. Michael S. Dukakis was running in '88 he used the lionel richie song "All Night Long" as did the San Diego Padres in 1984..
Kenny from Oldsmar, FlYes indeed!!! This is a very touching and relevent song that reaches into your soul and is so true to life. It is the best song I believe that Elton John wrote and my be one of the best songs that will ever be written.
Constance from Dallas, TxThe broadway cover of this song is so much more powerful and beautiful. I saw the show in Las Vegas. Amazing.
Mary from Phoenix, AzOh, my bad....I just figured out that you said "in the musical version". Sorry.
Mary from Phoenix, AzSara, that was not a woman, playing Rafiki. That was Robert Guillone, aka. Benson.
Sara from Silver Spring, MdCarmen Twillie is a popular L.A. session vocalist, in the musical version the woman playing Rafiki sings it.
Caitlin from Upper Township, NjThis has got to be the greatest song of all time from the lion king. it's so deep and makes you think about where you're life is headed. all the songs from the movie are great, and the lion king is just an amazing movie. props to elton john
Walk The Moon vocalist Nicholas Petricca got the idea for "Shut Up and Dance" when he and his girlfriend were taking forever to get drinks at a Los Angeles club bar. Petricca was getting frustrated, so his girlfriend told him to, "Shut up and dance with me!'"
