Good poll pirateatheart!!! I used to think I loved "Now is the Time", but "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" is the original CoP tune, I just LOVE it! We love to sing along with it too while we're on it! CoP is one of my all time fav. attractions, it's a classic!!!

I like Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow. I am not a big fan of the attraction, but it is a catchy tune. I find that it can easily get stuck in my head.

I went with the majority, Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, my SO just starts laughing when we go on it, because I sing along with the ride.

Never saw it as Now Is The Time... So I am biased towards Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.

And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”

There are so many different versions of COP. I did have to go with "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow". I prefer the original version from the New York 64 Worlds Fair. What version of COP do you like best?

"Now Is The Time" is the first version I ever saw live so that always will have a special place in my memory for me. But I do enjoy "Big Beautiful Tomorrow" too so I guess it's a toss-up.

I like the intrumental version of Now is the Time, but i like GBBT better overall...

The Sherman Bros. were geniuses when they wrote them though... they can be played together at the same time almost in perfect harmony... I've been messing about with them on my keyboard... if I ever get a file onto the computer I'll let you guys know :)

I like them both, but I prefer GBBT (which looks like something you'd find in a personal ad, actually :lol: ). Now Is The Time gets stuck in my head more frequently, though.
