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

I love THIS SONG (should be number 1)

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

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.

Its amazing it should be the first

This song is just amazing... I love it and can't stop myself from singing it

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!

I love this song but honestly let it go is one of my favourite

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

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

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.

Just, Incredible

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

This shod at least be at number 3. Let it go is number 1 for me but part of your world use to be my favorite song. The voice of Ariel (sorry I don't know who is the voice of Ariel) is amazing. This is one of the best Disney songs ever. I like "A whole new world" from Aladdin but I like this better.

Your mom loves this song

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 - Christina Aguilera

7Go 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 so much! Beyond empowering it really does make you feel like you can go the distance!

I love this song

8Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Lion King

I prefer Elton John's end credits one best... So beautiful! The original one has this taste that you don't, and won't get from a female. Nice and bold, it provides a certain emotion that Elton John only has the know-how to use. His voice is deep, and even when high, he give a beautiful sense of emotion to listeners. Not to mention the orchestra harmonizes super well with Elton John's voice to pull even more emotion from the song.

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.

One of the best love songs ever! And from Disney, you know its got to be good. Love the movie too

I am being Simba in a play & I just love this song

9Circle 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

Simply the best

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.

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

I love this movie, but most of all the song.. When you wish upon a star.

The Newcomers

?Today is Gonna Be a Great Day - Phineas and Ferb
?Happy Working Song - Enchanted

This is the best. It really expresses what the princesses do in each of their movies. They clean. But this song brings real attention the that.

The Contenders

11Under 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.

Lovvvvvee itt! So catchy -

I totally love this song it's fun and up beat I can listen and sing to it for hours!

12You'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!

Beautiful song

13I 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!

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 :)

Top 10 it is amazing!

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

18Beauty 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.

Best disney song ever

19Heaven'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.

This is without a doubt one of the best song to come from Disney. Not only is it an extremely catchy and enjoyable song, but it also deals with lots of messed up undertones which help make it incredibly dark, pushing the boundaries of songs that Disney have made

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!

Disney at it's best
