“Long Ago” is a song from the 1997 Disney animated film “Hercules“. The song is performed by the Muses, a group of gospel-inspired singing narrators who provide commentary on the events of the film.
In “Long Ago,” the Muses provide a brief history of the ancient Greek gods and their struggles against the Titans, culminating in the heroic deeds of Hercules. The song is a lively and upbeat gospel number, featuring powerful vocals and a catchy melody.
The lyrics of the song go like this:
“Long ago, in the far-off days
When the gods were still creating
All the creatures of the earth and sky
The Titans ruled the universe
And Zeus was kept in hiding
Deep within the mountain’s fiery core”
The song serves as a prologue to the film, setting the stage for the story of Hercules and his journey to become a true hero. It also introduces the Muses as important characters in the film, who will continue to provide commentary and musical numbers throughout the movie.
