The Top Ten

Let It Go - Frozen
After the nice digression Disney took with "wreck it ralph", Frozen went back to more traditional ways, has not just one but two Princesses, and a really nice fairytale setting. It also has a fair share of good songs, but none stands out as much as "Let It Go".
There are few songs from musicals wich I would listen to in my freetime, this one definitely is one of them. After all, the movie totally slipped under my radar, until I first listened to this song.

The Lyrics are great to just plain brilliant "It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small"
While the animated sequence is just stunningly beautiful. It just stays in mind, seeing her building this beautiful castle while singing this song.
It fits perfectly to Idina Menzel's voice, while the instrumental part flows just perfecty along. It gives me a shiver down my spine every time when the pace increases after the first refrain.
Indeed the best song for me. Truly awestruck and stunned by the scene where Elsa sings it and she builds her "ice-lated" castle, it's not just the video I'm impressed in, but above all the song. It is really an inspirational, emotional, and very catchy song. It not only has good beats and instruments, but teaches us to "let it go"; let our fears go, don't care what others say, be yourself and have magic, etc. It's also a great song to listen in whatever mood you are. Like I said before, it is an emotional song---it brings out more than one emotion. But for me, what really struck me for this song was the "emotional progress" of it: from despair and isolation, and later on the lyrics, it becomes hopeful, heavenly, and courageous mood to it. I have also listened to the classic and other Disney songs as well, even back before Aladdin and Mulan, and I must say I love them. They're all awesome, including A Whole New World, Circle of Life, When You Wish Upon A Star, Reflection, I'll Make A Man Out of You, and so much more. But for me, above all, the most inspiring and influential song (and probably the best and greatest) is Let It Go. We just can't seem to "let it go".
Its amazing it should be the first

2I'll Make a Man Out of You - Mulan
The power of this song is incredible. In a very weird way it is extremely catchy and makes you feel epic and masculine when you sing along to this incredible underdog of the Disney song world.
It is fun, it's catchy and it really is a milestone for mulan and the troops. It is great for sing alongs and even in my high school classes people play it and know all the words to it! It also brings a heavy meaning as while shang sings about being a man, the woman impersonating the man manages to raise herself above the stance of pale pathetic woman with no clue. it shows that yes, they did send him daughters when he asked for sons, and she kicks butt! Put that message with a catchy tune, beautiful lyrics and great action behind it, and you can't get a better song!
BEST SONG EVER! I love this movies in general and this song is the biggest reason I do

3A Whole New World - Aladdin
I love this song! Me and my friends are always singing it! Thank you so much Disney for making Aladdin! One of the best Disney movies ever to be made! (After Ariel of course - but only because of her hair) ;) Anyway, love for Aladdin and Jasmine
The prettiest Disney song in my opinion, I want this played at my wedding LoL
I love this song, and the ORIGINAL version by lea Salonga and Brad Kayne, not any other.

4Colors of the Wind - Pocahontas
Colors of the wind is the best disney song ever! It's beautiful how it talks about nature and that its all connected in a cycle that never ends😉 besides its not the typical disney love song 😍 personally my favourite princess is pocahontas she's so real and original (its even based on a real Indian on a real story) she is so different from all the other princesses👸 waiting for prince charming
This song... woah. First off it's Disney and that usually equals greatness/catchy tunes that get stuck in our heads for years. Second, it's got the majestic singing voice of Judy Khun. JUDY. KHUN. Dang, that lady has some vocal range. As a kid, I tried to sing this like Judy did but failed :(. 3rd, listen to the lyrics. They are deeper than a 60-foot hole. Need proof? How's about "and we are all connected to each other. In a circle, in a hoop that never ends."? That ONE lyric tells us that we are all connected with everything and everyone. This song is CHOCK-FULL of metaphors, it's insane. Some examples:
Trying new things: "But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you learn things you never knew, you never knew."
Spirituality in nature: "And I know every rock and tree and creature, has a life, has a spirit, has a name.
Not judging on appearences: "You think the only people are the people who look and think like you." woah. that is deep!

I love it so much, it actually has meaning. Part of your world and a whole new world is about someone who is desperate to be loved or to love. This should be higher, it's about environment and racist in one some song! Things are more important than to find your true love in one scene then kiss him/her in the next

5Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid
This song is so heartfelt and beautiful. Jodi Benson's voice is extraordinary! This song was also covered by Chely Wright as it's considered by many to be a "Coming Out" anthem, and is often played at LGBT rights campaigns. If maybe displeased with the entire film, I am almost certain H. C Anderson would have at least loved this song. It captures the feeling of his original fairy tale really well.
I love this song, I sang it all the time when I was little. It drives me crazy when people call it "Part of Your World" though, LoLz
I loved it then, love it now, will love it forever. Just one of Disney's gems cherished forever.

6Reflection - Mulan
As a little girl, I would dream of being able to be Mulan in the movie and sing this song. It has emotion and meaning. Mulan has to deal with the expectations of those around her. Not wanting to upset her family, while still not wanting to be untrue to herself, she's very confused. I'm sure many people can relate to this situation. All in all, a very beautiful song!
And no one does it better than Jackie Evancho on her 2nd PBS Great Performances concert "Music Of The Movies", and on her studio album "Songs From The Silver Screen".
I like this song it is so cool, I sing it the whole time!
"REFLECTION" Mulan!

7Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Lion King
One of the best love songs ever! And from Disney, you know its got to be good. Love the movie too
Jackie Evancho wowed millions around the world with her loveliest of renditions at the Capitol Fourth celebration on July 4 2013..
Jackie's delivery of this piece is stunning... You CAN feel the love - as it pours out of her soul and flows into your own.

8Circle of Life - Lion King
I can't believe this is rated so low, it should at least be in the top 10. This song is amazing! I love the magic it shows and how much it reminds me of being a kid. This song is definitely one of my disney favorites, I love Lion King so this isn't my single favorite but it's definitely one of them.
This should be number one. It's the most powerful and is beautifully written, The part when the orchestra gets going again, followed by lyrics, and the animals bellow and bow... Chills!
Absolute best song ever created in the history of the world... Not only should it be #1 on the disney best songs list, but it should be #1 on any best songs ever list
More comments about Circle of Life - Lion KingListen to sample

9I See the Light - Tangled
All these songs are great but this one's so cute. And I know you can't beat the classics but for a recent Disney film, this one is one of my favourites :)
As a general rule, I LOVE all Disney songs, but this one will always stand out to me. First of all, the scene it plays in is just beautiful. It's just Flynn and Rapunzel on a romantic boat ride at night, with thousands of lanterns covering the sky. It's just gorgeous. Mandy Moore's voice is so sweet and lovely, and it goes very well with Flynn's voice. The melody is soft and romantic, the lyrics are absolutely adorable, and this song just gives me goosebumps every single time.
This is actually my favorite song! Like you said beautiful melody and lyrics, Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi had excellent singing voices for this song! They matched well together, I was disappointed when this song lost to Toy Story 3's We Belong Together, Toy Story's had enough glory this song was so much better! The animation sequence with the lanterns was absolutely breath-taking!

10Go the Distance - Hercules
This is the best Disney song ever. When I was little I would listen to this song with my mom every day on the way to and back form school. Its simply amazing and it will always be my most favorite Disney song ever. Love it.
This song is so inspiring. I just love Hercules.
Soothing and melodious.. Truely enthralling

13Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast
Tied for my favorite Disney song ever written, not only because the melody is stunning, but because the scene that accompanies this song is so marvelous. Simply astounding.

The only song that could possibly beeat it is God Help the Outcasts.

15You'll Be in My Heart - Tarzan
This song has such special meaning to me. Not to mention how great Phill Collins voice is! It is definitely in my top 10.

It means no worries for the rest of your days
I absolutely love Let it go right now. But this song is my childhood! It ill always be one of my favorites! I am quite surprised it's not in the top 10!
Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase! Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passin' craze!
More comments about Hakuna Matata - The Lion KingListen to sample

17Kiss the Girl - The Little Mermaid
Definitely the best and most powerful Disney song! The calypso beat and Sebastian's romantic accent create "the mood"! Now, when anyone hears this, all they will be thinking about is kissing a girl. I would love to kiss a girl in a boat at night, in a blue lagoon, with this song playing! Just make sure there are no eels around laugh out loud.
I love this song from the Little Mermaid. I like the version with Traci Hines singing it. Just go on youtube and look at it. Ariel has always been my favorite princess out of all of them. I absolutely LOVE her red hair. I always wanted hair like that. I still do.
This song has a magical feeling. With every year passing, it seems more beautiful. every time you hear this song I just want to kiss my girl.

20Heaven's Light / Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Hellfire is without a doubt the most powerful Disney song ever written and is from one of the most underrated Disney movies. The soundtrack is in my opinion the best ever matched only by Beauty and the Beast and the Lion King. Absolutely stunning.
A perfect contrast between the hero and the villain, this is one of the most beautiful Disney songs ever! I don't care about the others I'd listen to this one all day!
So epically evil. Gives me goosebumps!

23Strangers Like Me - Tarzan
Perfect blend of power and melody, which us hard to do, also magical in transitions from power to restraint
Only Disney movie song I have on my music playlist
Listen to sample

24When You Wish Upon a Star - Pinocchio
Listen to the version by Jackie Evancho. Disney should be playing it in the entrance to Fantasyland at all of the parks.
Classic Disney song from a classic Disney movie! Beautiful lyrics, very inspirational... Should be number one. When I hear "Disney", I tie it back to this amazing song.
This song is the disney theme song. this should be number 1!

25Once Upon a Dream - Sleeping Beauty
Um well this is an extremely hard decision. I love almost all of the disney songs because they are just so magical and make us feel nostalgic. I decided to vote for Once Upon a dream because it has a low rating. But I really think that all of the songs are good it is just so hard to decide!
Aurora is SO beautiful. I love the story. Anyone who hasn't seen the Disney Princess Movies needs to get out and see them. Watch them online, buy them on DVD, rent them from Netflix. I don't care how you watch them, just see them.
Listen to sample

26The Bells of Notre Dame - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Clopin's voice actor did an amazing job on this song. I would pay someone a million dollars if they could hit that high note at the end. Move this up people!
So powerful and spiritual.
So under rated. Such a fantastic song. Lyric were wonderful, vocals amazing.

27Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast
I LOOVVVEEE this song, it's so awesome. Every time I watched it me, my dad, and my sister would sing a long to it without one mistake
Listen to sample

28Son of Man - Tarzan
As well as having an amazing rhythm, I think this song shows how Tarzan never gave up.
This song is so inspiring and I love how it is played in the movie when Tarzan is learning how to survive in his new home. This song never fails to cheer me up, and I absolutely love it!

29Belle - Beauty and the Beast
Belle is a true beauty and so is her voice.

Such a good song
Listen to sample

33Friend Like Me - Aladdin Listen to sample

34A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes - Cinderella
I voted for this after seeing how shockingly low it was ranked! This is an amazing song, classic Disney. Although I like the newer princesses as well, Cinderella is a classic. This song has an amazing message about believing in your dreams, it might not be my all time favorite but I still love this song a lot and it deserves to be much higher
How could this song have landed so low?! It's so poignant and beautiful and quiet, all qualities that Cinderella possesses. That she underwent so much cruelty at her stepmother's hands and yet still kept a smile on her face and a song in her heart...very inspiring.
This song is like... Disney's national anthem!
Listen to sample

35You've Got a Friend In Me - Toy Story

I just love the beat to this song, it's so easy to dance to. Plus, it's catchy
Don't know why I love this so much xD

Listen to sample

38God Help the Outcasts - Hunchback of Notre Dame
In my opinion, Hunchback of Notre Dame has the best soundtrack of any Disney film and, except for the mediocre one the gargoyles sing, I could have voted for any of its songs. However, this simple, beautiful song outshines the rest for me. Even as someone not that religious, I absolutely adore this song. It really shows the softer side of the firery Esmeralda making her one of the most well developed Disney ladies. I just love everything about this song. It's a true masterpiece.
"Are we not all the children of god". This song shows how every one need someone to believe in them.
I totally relate to this song I myself am an outcast and Esmeralda expresses this through song. I feel that the movie is totally based around this song.

39I Wanna Be Like You - The Jungle Book Listen to sample

40In Summer - Frozen
Not as good as Let It Go. But the 2nd best Frozen Song. My Favorite Frozen Songs are: 1. Let It Go. 2. In Summer. 3. Do You Wanna Build A Snowman. 4. Reindeer (s) are Better Than People. 5. Fixer Upper. 6. For The First Time In Forever. 7. Frozen Heart. 8. For The First Time In Forever (Reprise). 9. Love Is An Open Door. Anyway, All of these are good!

56Why Should I Worry? - Oliver and Company
I'm very sad this song is so low on this list. Billy Joel did a awesome job singing this song! Should at least be in the top 20! Listen to it and you will see what I mean.
It gives off a powerful energy that captures the idea of the entire movie. This song brings back childhood memories.
It's sad how this song is so low on the list. Listen to it, it does indeed give off a powerful sort of feeling.

Listen to sample

62Zip - a - Dee - Doo - Dah - Song of the South
Winner of the 1947 Academy Award for Best Song, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" is one of the greatest Disney songs written of all time. Whether or not Song of the South is banned from the US, this song cannot be ignored. I am very disappointed to see that this song is not already on the list, much less in the top ten. I am also very disappointed with the top ten choices, and the massive amounts of songs from "not-so-classic" films such as "Tangled" and "Frozen," which werent even created by Walt, himself. Lets please get this song to the top because it is undeniably the most deserving. Lets also try to get Song of the South back into our country! Please visit songofthesouth.net to learn more about the film!
This song always brightens my day and makes me feel happy when I'm down. Its one of Disney's lightest, most charming and care-free tunes.
One of the greatest songs from one of the greatest, yet terribly unrecognized films.
