Debate me if you dare, but some of the best songs of all-time come from Disney movies. So how can you create a list of the best Disney songs? I started writing down my favorites (my list had 35 songs) and then I took to social media to get some additional perspective for this near impossible task. If the song was one I wrote down and it received more than one additional vote it made the list. I’d like to confess right now that there were no outside votes for any Artistocats songs and I was offended. I added to them the list anyway. 🙂 There were a lot of votes for songs from Beauty and the Beast, but just about every Disney fan has gone to see it, so I expected a lot of votes for those songs.
25 Of The Best Disney Songs of All Time
To be very very clear, this is not a ranking. To quote one of my favorite movies, Ever After: I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens.
- “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You”— Mulan
- “Circle of Life” — The Lion King
- “Let It Go” — Frozen
- “Beauty & The Beast” (C’mon you know where this is from) The original version obviously. No one will ever sing this better than Queen Celine and the legendary Peabo Bryson.
- “Under the Sea” — The Little Mermaid
- “Hakuna Matata” — The Lion King
- “Be Our Guest” — Beauty and the Beast
- “A Whole New World” — Aladdin
- “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” — Toy Story This one’s a Disney/Pixar, but it counts!
- “Part of Your World” — The Little Mermaid
- “Reflection” — Mulan
- “Almost There” — The Princess and the Frog
- “Colors of the Wind” — Pocahontas
- “Be Prepared” — The Lion King
- “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” — Hercules
- “When You Wish Upon a Star” — Pinocchio
- “Everybody Wants to Be A Cat” — The Aristocats
- “You’ll Be In My Heart” — Tarzan
- “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” — The Lion King
- “Cruella De Vil” — 101 Dalmatians
- “The Bare Necessities” — The Jungle Book
- “How Far I’ll Go” — Moana
- “Thomas O’Malley Cat” — The Aristocats
- “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” — Cinderella
- “Ma Belle Evangeline” — The Princess and the Frog
One of my friends loves A Goofy Movie and one of her suggestions was I2I. Yup, so although it technically only had one vote, it makes the list as a bonus song. I mean you really can’t go wrong with a little Tevin Campbell.
Bonus: “I2I” — A Goofy Movie
