Robert B. Sherman (1925-2012)
Robert B. Sherman, one of the Sherman Brothers, died today. The songs he co-wrote with his brother are part of the common reference of pretty much everyone who was ever exposed to a Disney film (i.e. the whole of the Western world and most of the rest): the music of "Mary Poppins", "The Jungle Book", "The Parent Trap", "Bedknobs and Broomsticks", etc. and the extremely catchy "It's a Small world".
There's really one word to say - Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
