As a self-proclaimed Disney crazy person, I was shocked when I noticed our blog has absolutely no Disney characters’ playlists. How terrible! Obviously this is a result of MITN only recently expanding to film and literature and thus I have set out to remedy this obvious problem.
This was a pretty difficult decision with so many animated films and characters to choose from but I think you will agree that this little robot is worthy to be selected for Movies in the Newspaper’s very first animated character’s playlist.
Wall-E is very near and dear to my heart. The movie touches on important themes like consumerism, waste, and caring for our planet while the basic story revolves around two little robots that fall in love. Yes, I stand with the belief that this movie is a love-story. Sometimes I even think the morbidly obese human race flying around in space is just a complication in the budding relationship of Wall-E and EVE.
If you watch this movie carefully or have seen it as many times as I have (infinite) then you will begin to appreciate the true romantic that is Wall-E. 700 years of solitude on a polluted and unsustainable Earth has given Wall-E emotions and a true personality. All he really wants is someone to hold his hand.
Wall-E’s music selection is limited as apparently the only surviving video of life (dancing and music) on Earth is one of “Hello Dolly” which Wall-E re-watches, records, and dances along to with the hopes that he will one day meet his match.
If Wall-E could have preserved more of our music today, I think that his playlist would be made up primarily of songs about space, saving the world, consumerism and of course classic love songs. Head on over to 8tracks to check out Wall-E’s mix of Space Jams and Love Songs:
“and that is all that love’s about”
