The Disney studio has long set a standard of excellence for its animated films and other classics, and it's easy sometimes to forget how much music and songs have contributed to the feel and success of those films, reaching all the way back to the 1930s, and with the revival of the studio's success in the 1990s, there's a lot to enjoy and choose from. Disney issued a three-volume set collecting the best of these musical numbers from over the decades as Now That's What I Call Disney in 2011, then issued the first disc from the box separately as Now That's What I Call Disney, Vol. 1 in 2012, with this second of the three discs appearing a year later in 2013 and the third volume undoubtedly not far behind. Among the many highlights on Vol. 2 are "The Siamese Cat Song" from Lady and the Tramp and "Little April Shower" from Bambi, although virtually every track here is a classic across one generation or another.
