Here's a hint:

Another song from the same movie won a Best Original Song Oscar.

Another hint:

The movie is set in London.

 All of the songs for "Mary Poppins" were written by brothers Richard and Robert Sherman.  They were the resident songwriters at the Disney studio starting with "The Absent-Minded Professor" and "The Parent Trap" in 1961.  If you check their filmography on IMDB, you will find that they were involved in writing music for almost every Disney movie released in the sixties, seventies, and early eighties.  Actually, their first work for Disney was a short song recorded by Annette Funicello in 1959.  It was called "Tall Paul".

You are correct, Bagel.  Here is a clip from "Till The Clouds Roll By":

 

Bagel, It's your turn now.

The song is "Chu-Chi Face" from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".  The song was written by Robert and Richard Sherman, although it was not a Disney movie.

Yes!

"Chu-Chi Face," with music and lyrics by the Sherman brothers, is my favorite song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, with "Doll On A Music Box" a close second. 

Julie Andrews was originally offered the role of Truly Scrumptious in the movie, which would have re-teamed her with her Mary Poppins co-star Dick Van Dyke.

Good job, Miles! It's your turn.

That's from the title song of "Bye, Bye Birdie" with lyrics by Lee Adams and Music by Charles Strouse.

It was sung by Ann-Margret, as you will see in this clip:

Yes!

The movie Bye Bye Birdie was adapted from a stage musical, but the song "Bye Bye Birdie" was not in the stage production. It was written for the movie and is heard at the beginning and and at the end.

Good job, Miles. It's your turn.

Do like the voodoos do, listening to a voodoo melody 

Hint:  This has been done in more than one movie.

But the only movie that counts is the one that Fred Astaire was in. LOL

It's Irving Berlin's " Shakin' The Blues Away" tap danced by Ann Miller in "Easter Parade".

I thought you might get this one, Princess. 

Here is Ann.

Of course, it was also done by Doris Day in "Love Me Or Leave Me" 

Nice going, Princess.  You're up next.
