Originally, we even thought of Louis Armstrong, who had recorded some of our songs for other movies, so we knew him already.
We thought it was a great idea but as we were going to contact him, someone told us: "Did you realize that the NAACP [National Association for the Advancement of Colored People] might be offended if the king of monkeys is a Black man? This could be interpreted as an insult. All men are created equal and we had picked Louis Armstrong for his incredible talent. So we moved on and thought of Louis Prima, who had also recorded many of our songs and that we are big fans of.
Our luck star made it so that Tutti Camerata, who was the musical director of Disney's records, was very good friend with him.
Then Phil Harris came onboard. He was truly somebody unique, very special, who gave a wonderful performance for this song in particular and Baloo in general. It was a real treat to work with him. It's interesting to think that Louis and Phil could never work together on the soundtrack since they were hundreds of miles away each time one of them was available for a recording session. We had to record their part separately then mix them together.
It was really weird because they were supposed to talk to each other in the song. But he said: "These are not my words. We had something magical. Before their death, both artists said that The Jungle Book was one of the accomplishments that made them immortal.
We were very proud because these two gentlemen were truly extraordinary.
As for Sterling Holloway, we were very close to him since we worked with him on all the songs for Winnie the Pooh. One day, Walt asked him if he could voice Kaa the snake, and he totally changed his personality to become this scary and threatening animal, it was amazing! The difference between the soft and sweet Winnie was breathtaking.
So we benefited from some of the best voices in teh word! For the part of the young girl, we contacted Darleen Carr.
My Own Home (The Jungle Book Theme) Lyrics
She was shooting a movie for the studio called Monkeys, Go Home! She had a really sweet and pure voice, so we asked her to try out the song in our office during the lunch hour. We recorded a demo as I played the piano, and her performance was so nice that we played it to Walt. A year later, when it was time to record the final soundtrack, we were looking for a singer and Walt told us: "You already found her!
The young girl from the demo! He had heard her only once and she was stuck in his memory: "She's the one!
Well, this song was conceived as a very collaborative project from the beginning. We tried to have a jazz opening, then we said: "Now, improvise! Cappy Lewis, the solo trumpetist, imagined a solo that purposefully did not match what we had written.
My Own Home [The Jungle Book] Lyrics
But it's the fact that so much was improvised that makes this song so good. The Trashin' the Camp sequence in Tarzan , with its scat and trumpet, is a vibrant and emotional tribute to this song. It was indeed a good idea to use scat for that sequence. But you know, we didn't invent scat. It goes back to Louis Armstrong. He recorded the first scat, Hee Bie Jee Bies, in For me, he's the real king! I Wanna Be Like You was a sort of tribute to him. Tarzan shows us what you can learn from the past.
It's a very good thing. It's good to get your inspiration from the past, to make it yours to build your own path. That's true, this song is not funny. We wrote it because we needed a conclusion, which was not easy.
We thought it was a good idea for the little girl to appear.
She would help Mowgli to discover the emotions that a young man can feel for a girl. He would see a beautiful young girl with beautiful eyes coming to get water, and he would fall for her, wanting to follow her.
My Own Home
It's the magic of life, which draws a boy to a girl, and a girl to a boy We imagined some sort of siren's song based on the story.
At the same time, Ken Anderson, the wonderful artistic director, was in charge of drawing the story. We had never seen his work on this scene and he had never heard our song. One day, we went to his office and it was incredible to see that his drawings matched exactly our song! The tears were coming to his eyes when he heard it for the first time.
It was as if we had written the same piece!
Each detail could be found in the drawings and the music. We showed everything to Walt and the animators, and he told us: "This is it! This is the end, let's go!
Why is that? Before writing each song, we wrote a subtitle on each sheet, and only after did we name them. This made it easier for us to remember the characters and inspired us.
Till I'm grown, Till I'm grown. I must go to fetch the water, Till the day that I am grown. Then I will have a handsome husband, And a daughter of my own. Then I'll send her to fetch the water, I'll be cooking in the home. Then I'll send her to fetch the water, I'll be cooking in my home.
