Top 10 Best Disney Songs

The Top TenXW

1I'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

This is my absolute favorite Disney song of ALL TIME. It's so catchy and you can't help but to sing it!

2Let It Go - Frozen

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 ...more

Let it go has to be The single most overrated song possibly ever. Those who think it's utterly "the most inspiring and emotive" song they've ever heard clearly have never heard or seen or cared about anything more diverse than this pop musical theatre style song on self acceptance. You want real lessons of humanity in a Disney song? Watch Pocahontas to hear songs battling racism and equality. Hunchback of Notre dame to experience real rejection and a test of morals in gorgeous symphony and choir. Hercules to sing about feeling like an outsider and then rising to the top. You want vocals? Sleeping beauty. Princess and the frog. It's just a shame to see an overpopulated song overshadow MUCH BETTER (written, sounding, etc.) Disney songs.

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.

Wow can't believe it is this high. That song gets stuck in my head.

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

This countdown is rigged! A Whole New World needs to be number one, not that overrated platonic synthesizer Let it Go!

A whole new world a magic place I always new it is the best up top

4Colors of the Wind - Pocahontas

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

The first time I listened to song, I broke down into tears. The beautiful lyrics cried of so many details we miss in our blind savagery, and rung true for so many things, bringing our attention to environmental awareness and human arrogance. "You can own the Earth and still,/All you'll own is Earth until/you can paint with all the colors of the wind." Incredibly true and the most inspiring in the history of Disney music.

My favorite lyric is " I know every rock and tree and creature, has a life, has a spirit, has a name" I love this song because the wordplay used, like "If you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you'll learn things you never knew, you never knew" helps explain a beautiful and mysterious topic.

A nice soothing song to hear right before bed. It should be higher than let it go

5Reflection - 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".

Mulan is so powerful because it's about a normal girl trying to find her place in a rigid society. It subverts gender norms and is less about the romance and more about the people. The eventual marriage between Shang and Mulan is not a prize or the end goal, it's a bonus - completely non-central to the story. If they cut that last scene where Shang goes to visit the Fa family, it would be a perfectly great story all on its own, not that I don't love Shulan. This is why Mulan will always be, by far, my favorite Disney Heroine. I don't want to call her a princess because she's not a princess - she's a warrior.

Wow two Mulan songs in the top ten.

6Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid

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

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.

This song is the best as I love the little mermaid and it has so many funny bits but seriously ariel should be happy with where she's at as she lives under the sea and its good down her dads a triton and all she wants to do is be on land and pay taxes and get a prince

I remember watching Disney movies! I love this song. - Fandomstuck

7Circle 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

The fact that let it go is above this makes me sick to my stomach.

8Can 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..

The person below me is a sexist idiot. Don't insult females when there is no need for it. I hate people like you. And, by the way, we really don't need to hear your five-line love letter to Elton John. Maybe you should stop fawning over a 68 year old man and instead pay more attention at school, because even if you can quote every single one of Elton John's songs by heart, no company will ever hire you with grammar like that.

Two Lion King songs right next to each other and in the top ten.

9Go 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.

I love this song. Though I don't think it is the very best (2nd because Can You Feel The Love is #1), I adore this song. It's my friend and I's song that we constantly sing together.

Best cartoon

10When 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.

This song never grows old. Jackie Evancho sang this exquisitely during the pope's visit to Philadelphia in 2015. See the video on YouTube. - BobG

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.

How the hell is "Let it go" higher then this?!

11Be Prepared - The Lion King

"Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bad. Be prepared! *Scar's evil laugh*"

I wasn't prepared for a song this great. It made me root for Scar the whole movie!

This should be number #1

12I See the Light - Tangled

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!

Okay, this song should totally be number 1! I like let it go, but this song has a beautiful melody, beautiful lyrics and so much more actual feeling and meaning. I also tear up at this scene. Plus, you can't go wrong with a romantic Disney duet.

Such a great song. I can play it on the piano.

13Under the Sea - The Little Mermaid

Last is the classic "Under the Sea" sung by Sebastian. This song is awesome, not much left to say

This song has a fast beat and you need to be fast to sing it, too. You need practice. However, depending on what kind of singer you are, I don't recommend this song for a talent show.

Not my favourite Disney song, but it is still one of the best classical Disney songs of all time. I would choose this over let it go from Frozen any day.

Definitely one of the best.

14You'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.

I am simply in love with this song. I like the song better than the movie.

It is such a nice song and so fun to sing along to!

The best of the best, beautiful lyrics, beautiful music and part of one of the best Disney movies ever

15I Won't Say (I'm In Love) - Hercules

I love this song so much! Its one of my favorite Disney love songs! It should be higher! - ortolani

It's a great song I have it stuck in my head "my head is screaming get a grip girl! " Is my FAVORITE lyric

The way Megara from Hercules is feeling like she loves him but doesn't want to admit it is priceless.

One of the smartest lyrics of any love song!

18Heaven's Light / Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This is probably the most underrated Disney film and songs. It has brilliant lyrics showing the true character of each individual in the film. The background Latin chorus is absolutely amazing and intertwines with the English lyrics to perfect contrast in meaning; a Latin prayer for forgiveness is in the background of Hellfire, for example. It is truly one of the great masterpieces of Disney.

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.

Heaven's Light was an absolute perfect transition into Hellfire, which is the greatest song from Disney ever. The visual sequence? Amazing. The red hooded figures, the fire Esmeralda, the smoke Esmeralda... everything was just amazing! And then the actual song, it's so dark, so mature, and it has great lyrics and LATIN! Plus, the latin prayers and phrases really help get the point of the song across further. Definitely the best Disney song.

We need to get this up into the top ten.

19Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast

this is needed in list... oscar winning track.. one the most magical songs from disney.. add this to list... and watch... how many loved it.. thanks - hani_420

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.

I thought this song was called "Tale As Old As Time"... either way, it's a great song. Really beautiful, and also moving.

This should be the number 1!
