Magical Music: 25 of The Best Disney Songs of All Time

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.
  1. “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You”Mulan 
  2. “Circle of Life” The Lion King
  3. “Let It Go”Frozen
  4. “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.
  5. “Under the Sea”The Little Mermaid
  6. “Hakuna Matata”The Lion King
  7. “Be Our Guest” Beauty and the Beast
  8. “A Whole New World” Aladdin
  9. “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” — Toy Story  This one’s a Disney/Pixar, but it counts!
  10. “Part of Your World”  — The Little Mermaid
  11. “Reflection”Mulan
  12. “Almost There” — The Princess and the Frog
  13. “Colors of the Wind”Pocahontas
  14. “Be Prepared” — The Lion King
  15. “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” — Hercules
  16. “When You Wish Upon a Star”Pinocchio 
  17. “Everybody Wants to Be A Cat”The Aristocats 
  18. “You’ll Be In My Heart”Tarzan
  19. “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”The Lion King
  20. “Cruella De Vil”101 Dalmatians
  21. “The Bare Necessities”The Jungle Book
  22. “How Far I’ll Go” — Moana
  23. “Thomas O’Malley Cat”The Aristocats
  24.  “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”Cinderella
  25. “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
