According to The Disney Song Encyclopedia, "Dancing on a Cloud" was written for the 1950 film "Cinderella" but was eliminated during the production process.

Walt Disney himself assembled storyboards for the movie that had the hero and heroine dancing in the clouds, and the song was written to communicate that vision.

Although the song that eventually replaced "Dancing on a Cloud" — "So This Is Love" — kept the prince and Cinderella earthbound, two later characters lived out Disney's dream when Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip took the skies at the end of "Sleeping Beauty."

"Proud of Your Boy" found an audience with a DVO release featuring Clay Aiken singing the song. It's also added to the brand new Aladdin musical that just opened on Broadway.

You can find several more great songs cut from Disney movies in "Music Behind the Magic," and anthology of songs from Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast.

What about The Emperor's New Groove? I had heard Sting did the soundtrack for it (a la Phil Collins with Tarzan) but they ended up scrapping them all when they reworked it into a zany comedy.
