Songs »I Wanna Be Like You

i wanna be like you jungle bookI very nearly recommended the entire Jungle Book album, never having thought that would be possible for a Disney movie soundtrack, and it's not entirely. Like many things made for children, there's a limit and a full length album exceeds it. Of course, you're welcome to judge for yourself. There are some nice musical pieces by George Bruns and the popular Bare Necessities, but this song, performed in the movie by the ape King Louis, is the cream of the crop. Louis Prima already had a legacy as a Vegas performer when he teamed with Phil Harris for this rousing Sherman Brothers penned song. Please, please note that I'm NOT recommending the Smash Mouth version in Jungle Book 2.
