The Top Ten

Let 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 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".
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
[Newest]Terrible just don't do it frozen is a joke

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
[Newest]It is the best song ever!

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 recognize and appreciate the fact that this is a good song, but I don't really care for it that much. Please don't hurt me!
[Newest]A real love song.

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
"How high can the sycamore grow? If you cut it down, then you'll never know"

[Newest]I have tried so many times to sing this song but just can't reach the notes. The song is so beautiful and just picturing yourself as Pocahontas while you sing is the best.

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.
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.
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
[Newest]This song has strong vocals and needs allot of practice. I wish I could just go and sing this anywhere and sound as beautiful as Ariel. Yet, I could, With LOTS of practice!

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!
[Newest]I always sing this song

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
[Newest]It's amazing to watch live

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 Hercules so much! This song is amazing.
[Newest]The best song ever!

10Under 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

The Contenders

11I 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 :)
[Newest]Can never forget the scene where the floating lights all light up the sky, Rapunzel and Flynn just look at each other, and both knew that they're each other's light in each other's life.

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!
[Newest]This song is just so touching and heartwarming. Should be in the top ten

13I Just Can't Wait to be King - The Lion King
I LOVE THIS SONG Please vote lion king I LOVE IT! I also like beauty and the beast! Hope you like them oth as much as me! P. S DISNEY IS BRILLIANT KEEP WATCHING DISNEY! P.P. S I hope Disney make more movies YEAH!
how can you not smile when you hear this?
You just can't beat it when ever it comes on I just have to smile and sing along!
[Newest]This is the best song from a Disney movie.

14I Won't Say (I'm In Love) - Hercules
The way Megara from Hercules is feeling like she loves him but doesn't want to admit it is priceless.
I love this song so much! Its one of my favorite Disney love songs! It should be higher!


It's a great song I have it stuck in my head "my head is screaming get a grip girl! " Is my FAVORITE lyric
[Newest]Best song ever! Girls who have had bad relationships can relate to this

15When 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 should definitely be number 1. This is pretty much the theme song of disney.

16Beauty 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


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.

17Hakuna Matata - The Lion King
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!
Forget yolo! Hakuna Matata is the motto! Love this song!

18Be Prepared - The Lion King
"Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bad. Be prepared! *Scar's evil laugh*"
Who needs a king No king No king
Just the best villain song! Really funny and dark but also powerful
[Newest]Anybody who does not like Scar is evil.

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.
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!

20Kiss 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.

21The Bare Necessities - The Jungle Book
This old time classic is amazing and if you don't like you obviously have brain damage! Ahahaha no you don't but seriously, check it out!
I sing this song so much it annoyes the heck out of my best friend. BEST DISNEY SONG ever!
One of my all time favorite disney songs!
[Newest]Just thinking of this song makes me smile.

22Do You Want to Build a Snowman? - Frozen
It's so, so cool
This song should be earlier in the list. I'm not saying it's the best it's just a really good song. It's so sweet!
I love this laugh out loud

23Once 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.
This was my favorite movie as a child, and I always loved this scene. I wish newer Disney movies (a hem, Frozen) would have a scene that would never leave your mind for as long as you live...

24Strangers 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

25The 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.

26Prince Ali - Aladdin
Best song in the franchise! So awesome and powerful and strong and dramatic!

27Son 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!

28For the First Time in Forever - Frozen
For the first time in forever, this is a really great song, for the first time in forever, I could sing this all day long!
This song is so beautiful and so fun to sing along. It is better than let it go
Such a good song

29This Is Halloween - The Nightmare Before Christmas
Such an awesome Halloween song!

30Friend Like Me - Aladdin
Am I the only one that thinks this song is the best ever? Anybody? No? Fml...

31Belle - Beauty and the Beast
PERFECTION. How this is not in the top 10 is beyond me. I would always watch Beauty and the Beast as a child, and I would dance and sing along. It's so fun.
Belle is a true beauty and so is her voice.

32Be 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

33When Will My Life Begin - Tangled
I think that Rapunzel has the most beautiful voice.
This is really a good song
Rapunzel is the best

34Zero to Hero - Hercules
"Bless my soul, Herc is on a role." The muses are the best.

35Out There - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
How can anyone hate THIS? I swear almost every song in The Hunchback of Notre Dame I love (except "God Help the Outcasts" and "A Guy Like You". )


36A Girl Worth Fighting for - Mulan
Loved this song sometimes I just watch the movie to here that song
I can't believe no one posted a comment! It's a really funny song!

37God 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.

38You've Got a Friend In Me - Toy Story
This song basically embodies my childhood, should be in the top 10. Randy Newman is a genius.

39A 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!

40Hell Fire - The Hunchback of Northe Dame
I totally agree. This song was epic.
This is to low it's dame best

41Why 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.
Why should I worry? Tell me, why should I care?

If people remember just one thing about this movie, it's this song. Should be at least top 25.
It gives off a powerful energy that captures the idea of the entire movie. This song brings back childhood memories.

42The Siamese Cat Song - Lady & the Tramp
This song is a song that I always enjoy listening to. I have it on a disney CD and it is always the very 1st song I listen to. (:
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

43Some Day My Prince Will Come - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

44One Jump Ahead - Aladdin
Probably the most underrated disney song


45Poor Unfortunate Souls - The Little Mermaid
This was literally the best villain song I love Ursula

46Once Upon a Time In New York City - Oliver & Company

47Baby Mine - Dumbo
I cry so much when I hear this song.

48When She Loved Me - Toy Story 2
One of the best songs of all time, period. Sarah McLachlan's vocal's are spot on. And the story is heartbreaking. Truly outstanding song.

49I Wanna Be Like You - The Jungle Book

50Into the Open Air - Brave
This song is so beautiful! Brave has one of the best soundtracks in Disney, but is somehow terribly underrated... Julie Fowlis has a lovely voice in this song! The lyrics are beautiful and I find myself relating so well to them. The melody is catchy and so gorgeous. Definitely a great song

51Everybody Wants to Be a Cat - Aristocats

52In 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!


53Whistle While You Work - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
This is the best song, because I love whistling!

54Oogie Boogie's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas

55A Whole New World
I absolutely love this song and I think it should be number 2 but let's be honest let it go HAS to be #1

56Ever Ever After - Enchanted

57Savages - Pocahontas
I love this song the music the rhythm and the fact she risked her life to save Joan smiths is just WOW!

58Immortals - Big Hero 6
My favourite song ever!

59Oh, Sing Sweet Nightingale - Cinderella

60One of Us - The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
Best lion king song

61Kidnap the Sandy Claws - The Nightmare Before Christmas

No it is the worst other shocked posters

62Barking at the Moon - Bolt

63Part of Your World - Little Mermaid

64Love Will Find a Way - The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
I love the drama in this movie. Forbidden love. I love the song too.
Most touching song. Ever.

65Heigh-Ho - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
I just love this song! It doesn't have may words, but its got a catchy rhythm. I sing it every time I leave school.

66The Court of Miracles - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
I. Love this movie and it has an awesome soundtrack.

67So Close - Enchanted
Just a beautiful song altogether

68Intro - Little Mermaid 2

69He Lives In You - Lion King II: Simba's Pride
One of the best songs ever from one of the best Disney movies ever!

70Step In Time - Mary Poppins
This song is one of my favorites.

71My Lullaby - The Lion King 2
This song totally completes the whole be prepared thing. I love the sound effects, and the emotion. It' really unique, something you don't see in most movies.

72It's a Small World

73Where Do I Go from Here? - Pocahontas 2

74Prince Ali (Reprise) - Aladdin

75Dig a Little Deeper - The Princess and the Frog
I just like this song because it shows that some things that we think we want is not really what we need.

76When I See An Elephant Fly - Dumbo

77Heffalumps and Woozles - Winnie the Pooh
Just because it scared a lot of people when they were kids doesn't mean that it's a bad song.
It has the creepy, yet cool tone.

78He Mele No Lilo - Lilo and Stitch
This is an awesome song from the best Disney movie ever made

79Home - Beauty and the Beast
One of the most touching Disney songs ever created. I can relate to it so much, and the lyrics really speak to me. WhY iS iT sO lOw

80Grim Grinning Ghosts - Haunted Mansion (Ride)
In my opinion, it is the catchiest theme park ride song.
This would make an awesome Halloween song.

81Gaston - Beauty and the Beast

82That's How You Know - Enchanted
One of the best disney songs ever! Why is it so low?!?!
Best Disney film of all time!

83A Star Is Born - Hercules
Why is this song so low? Best disney song ever!

84Zip - 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 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.

85I'm Still Here - Treasure Planet

86I'll Try - Return to Never Land
I don't listen to it all the time but it's still a disney classic
I Love this song it is the perfect song for a bad day

87Arabian Nights - Aladdin

88Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride - Lilo & Stitch

89Scales and Arpeggios - The Aristocats

91World's Greatest Criminal Mind - Great Mouse Detective

92What's This - The Nightmare Before Christmas

93Little Wonders

94Touch the Sky - Brave

This is a great song sometimes I get caught up in the music and then when It stops I'm like Wow
