Come On and Kiss the Girl
The "Kiss the Girl" scene for The Little Mermaid ride at Disney California Adventure is solidly focused on Eric and Ariel, holding suspense as the viewer waits to see if Eric can break Ursula's curse. But there are plenty of other details in the scene as well, and one of them is the great little Sebastian animatronic, singing the song to set the mood. I realized during one of my rides that I could get a pretty cool perspective of the scene by focusing on Sebastian and framing everyone else in the background. Suddenly, the prince and the mermaid weren't the stars, it was the little red crab. And really, as far as music goes from the movie, he is the star.
