Dumbo - The Mixtape Edition

The Dumbo soundtrack has some very memorable songs and covers a wide range of emotions. From the silliness and loudness and commotion of a circus, to the tender feelings of a mother towards her child, this movie had it all within its music. 

My playlist includes a range of genres: Country (Dwight Yokam), Motown (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles), Rock (The Band), and an Oscar-winning composer (Henry Mancini). "Send in the Clowns" by Judy Collins would make me cry when I heard it as a child due to its melancholy tone and Collins' beautiful voice. There are several very good contemporary covers of "Baby Mine" - one version that is found on a Disney lullaby album is what put my kids to sleep when they were babies, so this tune has a special place in my heart.
