Very Good Advice disney song music“Very Good Advice” is a song featured in the 1951 Disney animated film “Alice in Wonderland.” The song is performed by the character Alice and appears on the film’s original soundtrack.

“Very Good Advice” is a reflective and introspective song that encourages listeners to be true to themselves and to follow their own path in life, even if it is difficult or unconventional. The song’s lyrics suggest that the most important thing is to be true to oneself and to stay true to one’s beliefs and values.

The song was composed by Sammy Fain, with lyrics by Bob Hilliard. It is one of the few original songs in the film, as most of the music is adapted from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass” books.

In the film, “Very Good Advice” is performed during a scene in which Alice is lost in the Tulgey Wood and encounters the Cheshire Cat, who gives her some advice on finding her way out. The song’s reflective and introspective tone perfectly matches the sense of confusion and uncertainty that Alice is feeling at this point in the film.

“Very Good Advice” has become a classic Disney song, with its timeless message about staying true to oneself resonating with listeners of all ages.
