A little piece of our childhood has left us. Robert Sherman, one half of a phenomenally successful songwriting duo (the other half is his brother Richard), died in his sleep Tuesday at 86. Together, the Shermans wrote some of Disney's most memorable songs. Their tunes appeared in some of the biggest kid movies of all time: Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Jungle Book. And that's not to mention a song for an amusement-park ride that will never leave your head if we mention it. (You know the one.)
To celebrate the life and talent of Robert Sherman, we asked NPR staffers to share some of their favorite Sherman Brothers-penned songs and memories. We hope you'll do the same.
