From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Baroque Hoedown" was created by early synthesizer pioneers (and frequent collaborators) Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley (Perrey-Kingsley). The composition was once described as being a "harpsichord gone country". It later became the theme song for Disney's Main Street Electrical Parade and for a time, the Electrical Water Pageant. It was also incorporated into Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade: DreamLights, Light Magic and Remember... Dreams Come True as a tribute to the Main Street Electrical Parade.

In the 1970s, Walt Disney Productions chose this tune to be the theme for the Electrical Parade. It was extraordinary, I didn't know about it because the publishers said nothing to me. It was by chance, in 1980, that I went there and was so surprised to hear Baroque Hoedown arranged for a full orchestra.

—Jean-Jacques Perrey, text from English subtitle[1]


The "Baroque Hoedown" melody is used in many songs, including:
