Tear-Jerker Alert! – Want to make a small child cry (and perhaps to the same to a full-grown adult)? In 1972, the following for Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts gang had grown to a full-blown phenomenon. Movies were inevitable and so this, the second film, was presented to an adoring public. The viewer learns of how Charlie Brown came into possession of Snoopy, his dog. We also learn of Snoopy’s former owner Lila.

Tagging along on his trek to visit his former owner, now sick and at the hospital, Snoopy’s bird friend Woodstock makes his debut.

The songs for the film were composed by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman, who cut their musical teeth at Disney, providing more memorable tunes than is easily able for one to process. Their sometimes difficult working and familial relationships were documented in the 2009 film The Boys: The Sherman Brothers’ Story.  That film dealt mostly with their Disney work, and while Columbia Records did (at one time) release Snoopy Come Home‘s soundtrack, it has been out of print for a very long time.

Popdose has a way of stepping in to fill voids such as these so, without further delay, we present the Sherman Brothers’ songs from Snoopy Come Home as well as instrumental cues that were not on the original soundtrack release. Enjoy.
