Wanted for cell phone ringer tune: Magic Kingdom's 'Carousel of Progress' theme



Yes, of course, I mean the '80s version the theme song for the Carousel of Progress attraction at Walt Disney World's Tomorrowland. I used to hit this ride religiously every visit because -- in the best times of our lives -- it was once one of only a handful of rides that didn't require tickets at the Magic Kingdom. (I think I still have a stray E-ticket somewhere in a scrapbook that might have better been used on Space Mountain.)

Now that I'm leaving within a few miles of the Mouse, I figured the cell phone needed a new tune. Any other recommendations?

As for the Carousel of Progress, it's been at Mickey's Florida home since 1975 and has been updated five times (including twice in the '80s). Legend has it that this was ole Walt's favorite ride. The man was nuts for nostalgia too, I guess.
