A Whole New Paradox!

I’ve been watching a lot of Disney’s Aladdin this week for someone who’s pushing 30 and has no kids.  I rented the special edition and watched all of the comentary tracks.

Even though A Whole New World won the best song oscar for 1992, it’s not my favorite song by far from the movie (One Jump AheadPrince Ali, and the Prince Ali Reprise (the only time Jafar sings) are all clearly ahead).

The thing that always annoys me when the song comes up is in the following line:

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling

…You just described the feeling as indescribable! This feeling wasn’t as indescribable as first advertised, was it, Jasmine?

I really do wonder if this would’ve annoyed me before I’d read Gödel, Escher, Bach, though.
