Andrew Fox (orchestrator): "The Siamese Cat Song" (from "Lady and the Tramp"). Unusually sparse arrangement for Disney — fantastic groove, and those marvelous planing harmonies from Peggy Lee (unfortunate stereotyping notwithstanding). Usually Disney villains go big or go home; these two cats sing a very static, mostly two-chord song that ends up representing them as coolly indestructible.

Also, "The Siamese Cat Song" by Bobby McFerrin, off of 1991's Simply Mad About the Mouse… This is awesome in every single way, a total psychedelic trip of an arrangement.
