Downton Abbey title card

Possibly one of the most like time period shows is Downton Abbey. Following a fictional aristocratic family in the United Kingdom, we follow the Crawleys and their servants. Starting off at the beginning of World War I and ending in the Roaring Twenties the Crawleys face times of change.

Music Monday: Alan Menken

Image result for Alan Menken starDisney is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Alan Menken. The well known composer has created several soundtracks for movies like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin. On top of some of the most beloved Disney movies he has gone on to compose music for Little Shop of Horrors and Sister Act, both stage musicals. There doesn’t seem to be anything that is stopping Alan Menken from slowing down. His name has a habit of popping up in more movies, musicals, and soundtracks even today.
