This may slightly old news for some of you, but it was new to me today.

I know some of you will immediately laugh at the idea of Nightwish being threatening in some way. It goes much better on this one.

Nightwish's Tuomas Holopainen is a huge Disney freak. Does anyone recall the song Fantasmic off Wishmaster? For the not-so-Disney-inclined, Fantasmic is an incredible show at both Disneyland (rises out of the Rivers Of America near New Orleans Square and Frontierland) and Walt Disney World at Disney-MGM. The lyrics to the song are directly inspired by the Disney canon.

From Sing365

Part 1

Wish upon a star
Take a step enter the land
Walk through the air
Take my hand
Wishmaster`s will-
Join him the quest for dream
A make-believe
Is all we ever need

Wish upon a star
No matter who you are
The second star to the right
Harbinger`s gate
Beyond the boundaries
Blossom ballet
In the great wide somewhere

Wish upon a star
Believe in will
The realm of the king of fantasy
The master of the tale-like lore
The way to kingdom I adore
Where the warrior`s heart is pure
Where the stories will come true

Part 2

A cub of the king betrayed by usurper
A girl in the rain swearing to her father`s name
Belle the last sight for the dying gruesome
The beauties sleeping awaiting
Deep in a dream
For true love`s first kiss

Part 3

Bald Mountain Night
Devilheart endures but light
A mad aerial dance
Chernabog`s succubi

Black Cauldron born
Gurgi`s heart forlorn
Pig-keeper or hero
On a quest of augury

Maleficent`s fury
The spindle so luring
Dragon fight, dying night
Dooming might

Apprentice of Yen Sid
Conducting the galaxy
Dreamer on mountaintop
Spellbound masquerade

The Sailor an idol for the six-year-old in me
The Phoenix of White Agony Creek
Enchantress, A mermaid in a tale as old as time
A Dragonslayer, The Awakener

Wish upon a star...

BTW, Static-X/Shadows Falls/3 Inches Of Blood just got booted too. Halloween is my birthday. I guess I won't be going to the parks that day as as planned.

Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
