The 10 Greatest Disney Songs of All Time

magic-carpet-ride2.jpg

I played a little game the other night called a “Disney Power Hour” where a custom made video is played that has one minute of a Disney song, after which it switches and you take a shot of beer. After about forty-five minutes I was getting nice and nostalgic, and would get bummed every time a song went on that I liked and it switched to a new song.

So I’ve assembled this list to reminisce with all of you about our childhoods. It’s almost impossible for at least a few of these songs to bring back some good memories, and thankfully, Disney has decided not to be copyright Nazis, and I was actually able to find almost all of the songs matched up with their actual scenes in the movies. Enjoy.

IT’S THE CIIIIIIRCLE OF LIIIIIIFE!

10. I Won’t Say I’m in Love (Hercules)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLvK5nKbo6w&feature=related

I often forget that Hercules is a Disney movie, because this is when they made the move to a more angled animation style that I strongly disliked, but this song is top notch. Check out this chick’s waist for examples of the design switch though.

9. You’ve Got a Friend in Me (Toy Story)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB2gPZRsz0Q

I was debating whether or not to put this on here, but I think Toy Story is still a Disney movie, even though it’s the dawn of the Pixar generation. Here’s a question, how come all of the new Pixar films have zero singing, while all of the old animated Disney films have tons of it? I think it would translate just fine.

8. Colors of the Wind (Pocahontas)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkV-of_eN2w

I never watched Pocahontas all the way through, but I recall this part, and the song really is memorable.

7. You’ll Be in My Heart (Tarzan)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIVaUcE4kAM

Oh Phil Collins, the man dominated the soundtrack for this film, a soundtrack that was actually better than the movie itself, this is my favorite piece from the track listing.

6. Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pPUmv3U2XY

You’ll find that some movies get more than one song on here. Little Mermaid is one of them, and there could have been many more from the film on this list too.

5. Circle of Life (The Lion King)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX07j9SDFcc

Maybe I should have put this a little higher, as it’s probably the most epic song on this list, but I just like these next ones better.

4. Kiss the Girl (The Little Mermaid)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXmLRHnoSAs

I used this in my car on a date once. After she stopped laughing, it totally worked.

3. Beauty and the Beast (Beauty and the Beast)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qtTPTxvoPA

I still wonder how exactly they animated this ballroom sequence. It looks like CGI before CGI was even around.

2. A Whole New World (Aladdin)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g74Q5MKV7ko

Just barely missing the number one spot is the hit track from the famous magic carpet ride. What I’d pick instead?

1. Can You Feel the Love Tonight? (The Lion King)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7XLnxKlYEo

And not the Elton John version (which is also good), this is the one where the LIONS sing. Probably the most romantic moment in Disney history, even though there are no humans or kissing involved.
