Who Will?

This is one of my favorite songs.  It comes from An American Tail IV: The Mystery of the Manhattan Night Monster.  The film, by Universal Studios, is also one of my favorites.  It is a reminder that “if we don’t fight for what’s right” then “who will?”

The video below contains the full song, but the images are fan-made by the same person who made the video.  There is no other video yet on the Internet which records the song.  Not that I can find, anyway.

Enjoy!

Lyrics for “Who Will?”

Nellie: If you don’t lend a hand

When a hand needs lending

Who will?

Fievel: If you don’t help your friends

When they need befriending

Who will?

When nothing goes right

And everything’s wrong…

When the days are too cold,

And the nights are too long?

Nellie: If you won’t be there to stand and be strong…

Nellie & Fievel: Who will?

Tony: If you don’t risk your neck

When a risk needs takin’ –

Who will?

If you don’t break the rules

When the rules need breakin’ –

Who will?

You’ve gotta be tough!

Nellie: And forthright and square!

Tiger: You can’t hide your head,

And pretend you’re not there!

Fievel: If we don’t fight for what’s right and what’s fair…

Who will?

Nellie: Everyone has a hero, hiding deep inside

Waiting to appear…

But there is no time left to hide!

The moment is now, the place is here!

Tony: Who will risk life and limb,

Just to help a stranger?

I will!

Fievel: Who will walk through the dark

Even though there’s danger?

I will!

Who’ll stay by your side?

Tony: And take up the cause?

Tiger: Who’ll give you his strength, his heart, and his paws?

Tony: Who’ll be your back-up?

Tiger: Your buddy?

Fievel: Your friend?

Fievel, Tony, & Tiger: We will.

Fievel: Fievel

Nellie: And Nellie

Tony: And Tony

Tiger: And Tiger

ALL: We will.

Some Favorite Music from Animated Films/Shows

One of the ways in which storytellers who write animated films or TV shows hook young viewers (or those viewers who are young at heart) into their stories is with some catchy music. So unless you share that Philistine view of Brian Kilmeade’s, which is to dislike “having animated characters sing” to you, these tunes I have selected just might make you smile.

These first four songs listed below are from Disney’s latest animated film, Frozen.

Vuelie (Frozen)

Frozen Heart (Frozen)

Let It Go (Frozen)

Fixer Upper (Frozen)

The next two songs are from two Zoids series – my favorite, Chaotic Century, and Zoids: Genesis. While I do not enjoy that series (see my post “Zoids: Genesis” for details), I do enjoy the theme music for it.

Unfortunately I cannot seem to make the video for Chaotic Century come up. When you click on this link, beware: I do not know what the website where I found the Zoids: Chaotic Century introduction will play after the music finishes. You may want to pause the player after the film for Zoids: Chaotic Century has run its course SO VIEW IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!! J

Zoids: Chaotic Century

Zoids: Genesis

This next song is from an animated Universal Studios film: Balto III: Wings of Change. It is a fan video, so it has the lyrics written across the top and a translation of the lyrics into another language below the film footage. I could find no other suitable video of the song, unfortunately, but this is better than what I would have had otherwise, which is nothing.

Everything Flies

This music is from the end of the Japanese animated film My Neighbor Totero. The song is in English. Be warned, the video starts out with the younger of the two heroines, a girl of about three, crying rather loudly. You may want to turn down the volume on your computer when you begin to listen to it.

My Neighbor Totero (End Theme Song)

These three songs are the introduction to three of my favorite animated television series over the years. They are stand-alone songs and not from any movie; only the last one is an apparent fan video.

Thundercats

 

Speed Racer

 

Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

This final song is from the Universal Studios animated film: An American Tail: The Mystery of the Manhattan Night Monster. The video that accompanies the song has no bearing whatsoever on the song or the movie it came from, other than the person who posted it seems to have enjoyed the song and the movie as I did.

I would have gotten a better video for the song if there had been one available; my previous choice was deleted unexpectedly, however, and this video was the best I could do.

 

Who Will?

 

Hope you enjoyed the music!
