Richard M. Sherman


In 1951, the Sherman brothers wrote their first hit song. It was a country-tinged ballad called “Gold Can Buy You Anything But Love" and was recorded by Gene Autry. Their bouncy tune, “Tall Paul," was recorded by Annette Funicello in 1959. That song caught the attention of Walt Disney, who then hired them as staff songwriters for The Walt Disney Studios. In their eight years at Disney, they wrote more than 200 songs for around 27 films and 24 television productions.
