Alan Menken has done it all. He recently won his first Emmy award, making him the 16th person to ever achieve the EGOT, winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. He’s also behind some of the most memorable and iconic music ever written. But never let it be said that writing those songs is easy. Case in point, Aladdin‘s iconic, and Oscar-winning song, “A Whole New World” Was tentatively titled “The World at My Feet” until Menken’s lyracist decided that Disney lone songs shouldn’t be about feet.
