When you wish upon a starry tune
If Disneyland is "the happiest place on earth," certainly it's a place where wishes are granted. So the arrival of "Disney Wishes!" (Walt Disney Records), a collection of classic movie themes, is a logical benefit for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
The CD includes "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" (Elton John) from "The Lion King," and "You'll Be in My Heart" (Phil Collins) from "Tarzan." It also offers former Island girl Bette Midler on "Baby Mine" (from "Dumbo"), Barbra Streisand on "Some Day My Prince Will Come" (from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs") and Tony Bennett on "The Bare Necessities" (from "The Jungle Book"). Teen fave Jesse McCartney puts his spin on "When You Wish Upon a Star" (from "Pinocchio").
