Editors’ Notes Building on the success of The Little Mermaid, composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman reteam to tell a fantastical love story through song, complete with dancing dinnerware. “Belle” sets the scene in Broadway style, while the boastful “Gaston” is goofily great, and Angela Lansbury’s voice easily lends itself to an animated character. Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson bring their star power to the title track, providing a swoon-worthy radio single that easily stands on its own.
