Last week, Mickey Mouse celebrated his 82nd birthday. The famous rodent has come a long way since the day when he was first drawn by Ub Iwerks under the direction of Walt Disney. He is, without a doubt, Walt Disney's most famous icon and has even become a symbol of the USA. Disney has millions of rabid and dedicated fans and many musicians have penned songs in Mickey's honor. But Mickey Mouse has also become synonymous with corporate-produced entertainment, tackiness and/or low quality -- many musicians have used the icon with this connotation in mind. This playlist looks at a dozen songs that mention Mickey Mouse somewhere in the lyrics in a positive light, a negative light, or simply as a nod to popular culture.
