‘Snuff Out the Light,’ ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’ — Disney Songs You’ve Never Heard

Subscribe to TheFW on

An underrated cut song from an underrated film, ‘Snuff Out the Light’ is actually rooted in the aborted proto-‘Emperor’s New Groove’ film ‘Kingdom of the Sun.’ In it, the villain, Yzma (voiced by Eartha Kitt), plots to literally blot out the sun, which she blames for aging her and destroying her beauty. This song was cut when later scripts had her simply plotting to become empress of the Inca Empire, rendering the song sorta pointless. But it was still included in the soundtrack because, hey, who doesn’t want to hear Eartha Kitt sing? Also check out her other great song ‘Like A Million’ from the not-so-great sequel ‘Kronk’s New Groove.’
