Walt Disney was an unabashadly sentimental man.  Every Friday or so he would call his songwriters, the Sherman brothers and they would sit quietly in his office chatting.  The conversation would die down and he would swivel away looking quietly out the window.  They would all sit like that for a bit and then Walt would break  the silence asking simply,  "Play it for me, fellas."
