2. "My Way" by Frank Sinatra
I'm glad to see you back, baby You been gone such a long, long time And now that you're back, baby Let's make up for long lost time Well, the day that you left me, baby I nearly went out of my mind I couldn't hardly sleep at night, baby Every morning I woke up crying. So let's get down to business Yeah, let's get down to business Well, let's get down to business, baby You been gone such a long time. Now I know that I love you, baby And I thought that you loved me, too Now, now that we're together, baby Tell me what are you going to do Well, what made us break up, baby I don't know till today But if it was my fault, baby I swear I'll change my ways.
In addition, Mushu has a speaking line unlike the other characters in the song. Wilder and Zippel were inspired to complete the song after conceiving its ironic title, and the initial draft of the track was immediately approved by Disney. Prior to Mulan , Osmond had auditioned for the role of Hercules in Disney's Hercules , a role for which he was ultimately turned down by the directors because they felt that he sounded too old. Disney eventually cast Osmond as the singing voice of Shang because his singing voice is similar to Wong's speaking voice. An up-tempo military-style song that incorporates both Eastern and Western musical styles, "I'll Make a Man Out of You" is performed by Shang during a rigorous training montage in which his young, inexperienced soldiers attempt to justify their worth. The song's title is considered ironic because Mulan, who relies on intelligence, ultimately proves more competent than her male comrades, including Captain Li Shang, who takes a liking to her, while its lyrics explore hyper-masculinity contradicted with Mulan's gender. Critics have also drawn comparisons between the song and Disney's Hercules , while likening Mulan's role and transformation to actress Demi Moore 's performance as Lieutenant Jordan O'Neil in the film G. Jane The song has since appeared on several "best of" Disney songs lists, including those of Total Film and the New York Post. Discussed by film critics, film historians, academic journalists and feminists, the song has gone on to be recorded and covered in several different languages—namely Mandarin, Cantonese and Spanish—by entertainers Jackie Chan and Cristian Castro , respectively.
