One of our favorite Disney songs ever is Peggy Lee’s “He’s a Tramp” from Lady and the Tramp. Not only is Lee’s voice like buttah but the song’s message of lovin’ a man who’s no good for you just resonates in our wounded gay heart.
Now come word there’s an unreleased song from the 1955 Disney classic that’s about to see the light of day.
“I’m Free,” by lyricist Ray Gilbert (“Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”) and composer Eliot Daniel (I Love Lucy‘s theme song), was cut from the movie as the character of Tramp evolved in the development process. A new recording, sung by Marco Marinangeli, will appear on the new Lady and the Tramp Blu-ray coming out on February 7.
Take a listen to a preview of “I’m Free” and tell us if you like it.
