Beauty and The Best was composed by Tchaikovsky in the 1800's. So it came before this piece did. I'd say they were taking the melody of BatB and some from The Nutcracker and mixing it together. Not very original

Sounds a mixture of Beauty and the Beast and the Nutcracker

Thank you, Kyle. :)

It's weird, everyone here was talking about Beauty & Beast, and Benjamin Button, then after this song was done my station played a track from the movie Black Beauty. Lot's of "B" alliteration associated with this music...

Ah-ha! Its Benjamin Button... also the Simpsons used this piece. Just in case that was driving anyone else crazy. Great track

I think of this song everytime I walk into somewhere magical, Forests, fog, my closet, and other unexplored forces of nature...
Report as inappropriate
mmm hmm. B&B's score was inspired by this piece, at least at a couple of points. but I didn't know that Sleeping Beauty reference, Suzy. thanks. I'll look for it the next time I watch the movie. ^_^

I agree with the comment below, I definitely though of Beauty and the Beast, especially the scene where she discovers the rose.

So Alan Menken borrowed this song to compose the film score West Wing from Beauty and the Beast?
Report as inappropriate
Danny Elfman appears to have "borrowed" some this style. And Yes, Beauty and the Beast reminds me of this as well!
Report as inappropriate
I love how Disney composers will pull themes from classical composers, as Alan Menken did with this song for "Beauty and the Beast." You'll hear more Saint-Sebast i a n s in "Sleeping Beauty."

Thats what I thought it sounded like! lol I couldnt remember. It is from beauty and the beast.

it sounds like the song that plays when Belle discovers he rose in Beauty and the Beast.

My daughter and I noticed this song reminded us of Danny Elfman's style. We were surprised to see it was from so long ago. Absolutely beautiful!
