No; for example you can protest the government in America whereas in China you would be arrested for it. You can believe in kooky Alex Jones conspiracy theories in America – but in China you would be tortured and have your organs ‘donated’ ala Falun Gong practitioners. You are allowed to play games and watch movies with violent and sexual content in America whereas you would have to do so illegally in China via torrenting. In America you are allowed to visit Chinese websites without a VPN – in China you cannot visit foreign websites without a VPN. In America you are allowed to make fun of Trump on twitter and spread memes about him – in China any spreading of negative posts on Xi Jinping will be scrubbed. So no… its not getting close.
JFK for me. So many iconic lines
“Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans”
“Ask not what you country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
“And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.”
“Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.”
“Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.”
“and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.”
“I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.”
Say what you will about JFK; he had amazing speeches
5. You’ll be in my heart – Tarzan
A fun 90s pop song by Phil Collins, if you like 90s pop songs like I do, then this one is definitely fun and is a good song to end out Disney’s amazing 90s run of hits
4. Why should I worry – Oliver and Company
I gotta tell ya, when I was a kid, I heard this song and immediately I was hooked. It’s just full of that ‘urban New York city’ attitude and Dodger is the coolest dog ever. The fact that its sung by Billy Joel, its perfect.
3. I won’t say I’m in Love – Hercules
A doo-wop gospel backed ballad sung by Susan Egan, I like the uniqueness of this song, it’s not a traditional Disney type song at all, and yet it works. It’s catchy and fits the character well.
2. Beauty and the Beast
Celine Dion did an excellent version of this song and along with A Whole New World, this is probably the most popular Disney duet song. I like this one better though, the melody is instantly recognizable and the ballad is definitely one that will make your girlfriend or boyfriend swoon from its sweetness.
Colors of the Wind – Pocahontas
This song is lyrical perfection. There’s so much imagery, the melody is instantly recognizable like a lot of other Disney songs (A whole new world, When you wish upon a star, Beauty and the beast, Part of your world, Reflections, Go the Distance, Let it go are a few others I can instantly recognize as well), but lines like “If you follow in the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll see things you never knew you never knew” is all the more important today with all the politics going on. What a powerful song, on all levels.
