There is a lot of great music from the park over the years. If you looks around online, you can find them. I collected and edited some I found and put them together for download! I also included cover art and some info on each of the tracks. Enjoy!

Awesome! Thank you!

This one is similar to the Maverick theme they play in South West Territory, but not 100% identical!

This is a treasure! Thank you so much for putting this together. Also, the name of the County Fair song is "Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye." :wink:

I think over the years I've been able to find some exact matches to the songs that they played around the park. Many of the songs in Carousel Plaza could be found on the album "Historic Wurlitzer Carousel Organ Music, Vol. 1", such as:

"Little Annie Rooney"
https://youtu.be/G3Oc-rIWGYE

and "Ben-Hur Chariot Race"
https://youtu.be/LLhaNzcBsmo

Also, these songs played in Screams and Dreams when they were talking about Southwest Territory, so I'm assuming they were also played in Southwest:

This one's called "Stanley Riggins" by Scott Moulton
https://youtu.be/ijxUkSXZ53U

And this is "Hoedown" by Brian Keane
https://youtu.be/9BrOiYBGFv8

Once again, this is awesome! I hope to some day hear this music in the park again!

Thanks for the info! I love that county fair music. I didnt add any selections from southwest territory because I couldnt find any info about what is played there. Now I can add that in too! Have any idea what songs are played in Yankee Harbor. That short clip is all I could find.

I think Yankee Harbor played various sea shanties, but they were weird in that they sounded almost like disco versions of them (it was the 70s, after all). I've linked to Screams and Dreams Vol. 1 when they're talking about the Tidal Wave here and you can hear kind of a funky version of "Drunken Sailor":

I think all the stuff played in the Marriott sections with the exception of Carousel Plaza was actually originally recorded for the parks, so I don't think you can find the exact versions anywhere unless you somehow had access to the park's music. I was able to identify a lot of the songs though just walking around. Here are some of the song titles I was able to identify in the park soundtrack (but I don't have the exact versions):

Hometown Square:
"Maple Leaf Rag", "The Entertainer", "The Easy Winners", "Pineapple Rag", "Bethena", "Magnetic Rag", "The Ragtime Dance", and "Palm Leaf Rag", all by Scott Joplin. Many of these were on the violin similar to many of the versions released on an album by Itzhak Perlman. Here's "The Easy Winners" for example:

https://youtu.be/i_LKHnQ_tbg

I would also hear the song "Let Me Call You Sweetheart".

From about 2011-2015, in addition to the ragtime stuff they would also play a lot of big band and swing from the 30s and 40s like "Take the A Train", "Sing Sing Sing", and "Jump Jive an' Wail".

County Fair:
I would often hear popular songs from the early 20th century in this area like the aforementioned "Toot Toot Tootsie Goodbye", "Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue", "My Blue Heaven", and "When You're Smiling."

Orleans Place:

Here they would play dixieland versions of many New Orleans favorites like "Georgia Camp Meeting", "Camptown Races", "Bill Bailey", and "Sweet Georgia Brown."

Southwest Territory:
I would often hear themes from old Western movies like "The Magnificent Seven" and tv shows like "Maverick" in this area, as well as guitar versions of cowboy songs like "El Paso" by Marty Robbins and "Red River Valley." Here is a guitar version of "El Paso" by Grady Martin very similar to what they'd play in Southwest:

I'm sorry if this is way more than what you asked for, but I thought it would be interesting to share.

I’ve been looking for the Yankee Harbor funked-out “Drunken Sailor” song for decades.

It really is awesome. I heard it last year for the first time, really adds to the suspense! Seems like they were messing with the sound system at the end of the season. There was some original Marriotts music playing in county fair games. I really hate the pop music they used last year. The loop was only like an hour long and it was really noticeable when its playing through the entire park. Im fine with modern music, but please bring back separate area loops!

Pop party music in Carousel plaza, Electro swing in HTS, Big band/Postmodern Jukebox in CF, Country in SWT, Indie acoustic songs in YT, and Modern Dixieland Jazz in OP. (Honestly, i dont know what they could do in YH)

The Pogues. One song on a continuous loop (no, I'm not serious).

^Honestly though, if we were to do a modern take on Yankee Harbor music Celtic punk would be perfect.
