At the persistent urging of Walt himself, an apprehensive Annette jumped headfirst into a pop music career. Her first hit Tall Paul was wrote by none other than Disney legends Richard and Robert Sherman, who went on to write several other songs for her. She released many albums under Disney's Buena Vista Records, including Dance Annette, Italianette, and my very favorite Hawaiiannette.
One of my favorite Annette moments, this song is on Annette's first album for Disney.
Thank you so much Annette, for everything you did to make the early years of Disney so wonderful. Your contribution to so many peoples lives cannot be overstated. The sense of nostalgia and fond memories that you bring to the world are invaluable. Thanks for making the world a better place, literally, and thanks for being you.
