Top 10 Animated Disney Movies With the Best Music

Which disney movie had the best songs as a whole? I'm actually not using my own order in creating this list, so it actually kinda "stings" to place Pocahontas so low.

The Top Ten

The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

Lion King's always #1 here, LOL (just pointing it out). I like this film, but I wasn't a fan of all the songs. I don't really like Can You Feel the Love Tonight (I think it's frankly annoying), but I do love "Circle of Life", "Can't Wait to Be King" and "Hakuna Matata".

Universally enchanting... makes you feel a deeper connection to humanity, the earth, our ancestors, and the gods... A celebration of Africa and more generally nature. I love the musicality of "Circle of Life" and the lyricism in "Be Prepared".

I knew this would be #1. The Circle of Life would have given this movie top spot, by itself, even without all the other brilliant musical numbers.

Be Prepared, Hakuna Matata, Circle of Life, Can you feel the love tonight, and those instrumentals.. CANNOT be topped!

Aladdin Aladdin Product Image

A movie a lot a princess. One of the greatest characters intros of all time. Robin Williams was spitballing out amazing works of art.

Ex: Friend Like Me, One Jump Ahead, A Whole New World

Oh my god, One Jump Ahead and Prince Ali are so catchy.


The Little Mermaid The Little Mermaid Product Image

I love the little mermaid it is my favorite movie I am 25 and I will even tell you everything about the little mermaid is amazing

This deserves to be top. Most of the Lion King music was good, but not great (with the exception of the circle of life, which is great) And while Aladdin had a couple of really good songs, almost all of the Little Mermaid songs were really good (except for part of your world. I didn't like that one). I've yet to watch beauty and the beast, however.

Part of your world is my favourite Disney song, and the other songs from the little mermaid are absolutely amazing

This is the best musical ever to grace the screen. Part of Your world and Under The Sea are two of the most beautiful and memorable songs of them all.

Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

Be our guest and take as old as time are two of the best songs from Disney to date.

Not only did I love the soundtrack, but I loved the score. The opening music, the battle music, the transformation music, it was amazing!

Ex: Tale As Old As Time, Little Town/Belle, Something There

I love this soundtrack, so many great quality songs like Belle and Be our guest

Mulan Mulan Product Image

I'm sorry, "Reflection" is more whiny that inspiring and "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" is more demeaning and annoying than inspiring. When will people get over those songs?

Are you saying that Lea Salonga's singing is whiny? She's on Broadway, I hope you know.

Best movie besides the lion king

I am surprised to see this one so high on the list, but I definitely think it deserves it.

Frozen Frozen Product Image

Awesome music let it go was my favorite song for a long time and still remains treasured in my heart as a song that reminds those who are different they can and should be themselves

No matter how parents might feel, kids absolutely LOVE this movie.

You can't argue the incredible music in this movie. Every single song was an instant hit. From "Frozen Heart" to "Fixer Upper" with "Let It Go" in the middle, each song is instantly recognizable. There's a reason this is the highest grossing animated movie of all time.

Beautiful music score. My 15 month old granddaughter loves this movie because of all the music.

The Nightmare Before Christmas The Nightmare Before Christmas Product Image

This deserves a much higher spot because it is so well put together and I get chills every time I listen to it. The music is so well written and every single song will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. I especially love Sally's Song. One of my favorites. Way better than Frozen and it has everything; music, horror, love, comedy, Santa Claus, fantastic visuals. Who could ask for more?

This movie has the best and most beautiful music.

Amazing, just amazing. Love it!

The best

Tarzan Tarzan Product Image

Phil Collins could fill a greatest hits album with these songs. Better than almost anything he has ever written before. The songs are catchy, well-written, well-orchestrated, and deeply emotional (when they need to be). Of course, above all, they're memorable.

One of the best Disney soundtracks EVER! Yet so underrated :/

This soundtrack brings out more true emotion then any other! Your truly feel this soundtrack in your heart

Why isn't this number one? This soundtrack is amazing!

Tangled Tangled Product Image

Grossly underrated and under-appreciated as a movie and for its music. A top 5 Disney movie easily.

I love this movie and this that it is completely underrated, I think it is way more fun and interesting than Frozen.

Love this movie

Tangled is underrated:have you hear when will my life begin? or I see the light? those songs are better than let it go.Also this was the last movie (until inside out and the good dinossaur) from Disney that was great

Hercules Hercules Product Image

Not a classic princess love story, but enjoy how much action and the stakes this movie has. Brilliant music as well.

Ex: I Won't Say I'm In Love, Go the Distance

Every song in their soundtrack is an automatic classic for me. "A Star is Born", "Zaero to Hero", "I won't say I'm in love", "The Gospel Truth", "Go the Distance", etc

My favorites are Go the Distance, I Won't say that I'm in Love, and the Gospel Truth!

The Contenders

Moana Moana is the protagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film of the same name. Born on the island village of Motunui, Moana is the daughter of Chief Tui and Sina, with an inherited love for the seas and voyaging. When her island becomes endangered, Moana is chosen by the ocean to journey across the more.

Tie between this and Little Mermaid. Listen to the soundtrack almost daily with my child!

This movie has songs that stay in your head! Our five year old has them memorized. We have watched it at least 50 times.

This isn't out yet. But the music in the trailer is good.

I'm amazed that more people don't have moana in their top ten disney musicals list.

The Jungle Book The Jungle Book Product Image

I could have loved this movie as a kid from the music, alone.

I would have loved this movie for its songs, alone.

Come on guys! This movie's the Bare Necessities!

The main overture is so beautiful, and "Be like you" is really incredible. "Bare necessities" is lots of fun and gives a code to live by (maybe another generation's Hakuna Matara)!

Oliver & Company Oliver & Company Product Image

I love the songs in this such as why should I worry,once upon a time in New York City and good company. The film and the songs are brilliant in this film

I have why should I worry on my iPad

The Hunchback of Notre Dame The Hunchback of Notre Dame Product Image

All Disney soundtracks are great but ones for Hunchback of Notre Dame is just exceptional. Never miss goosebumps hearing Bells of Notre Dame, and Hellfire is without doubt of the best villain songs from Disney, just to name some of the movie's songs. The movie itself is great too!

Oliver and Company feels like Chicken Little compared to Hunchback.

Notre Dame and Oliver are both equally good in their own rights. Neither are comparable to Chicken Little lol. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

How is this soundtrack so low on the list? It's probably the greatest piece of musical art Disney ever produced with an epic emotional feel to it. It's one of the few that goes beyond your whimsical sound, and can have actual weight and meaning behind each song.

Criminally underrated. I'm not going to reserve myself and say this deserves to be higher. It should be #1. The Bells of Notre Dame, Out There, God Help The Outcasts and Hellfire are the best.

Cinderella Cinderella Product Image

Great music, great animation, I don't know what else to say, this will always be number 1 in my heart

Best music of any Disney movie

Pocahontas Pocahontas Product Image

Love the music. Whether it be from the characters or just the score. Beautifully done.

The songs are just beautiful, one of disney's best indeed. One major highlight is of course Colors of the wind

Ex: Colors of the Wind, Just Around the Riverbend

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Product Image

The animation is still beautiful. I enjoy that there are songs that don’t do anything for the plot, but exist to bring the audience joy.

It's cool but sad

Fantasia Fantasia Product Image

Are you joking? Classical music is not something to vote over!

This one has way better music than Lion King. And best Villain (Chernabog obviously).

Ex. Nightmare on Bald Mountain, The Nutcracker Suite this is the climax of Disneys classical music this should be at least in top 10

Big Hero 6 Big Hero 6 Product Image

Eh, don't really like Fall Out Boy, but I'd still choose "Immortals" over "Try Everything".

Peter Pan Peter Pan Product Image

I love this movie

Monsters Inc Monsters Inc Product Image

This should be further up!

Even they made memes of the theme song

Pinocchio Pinocchio Product Image

This deserves to be 10 places higher. Each song of this is embeded as timeless music. And I mean.. all of the songs.

If nothing else, this movie's soundtrack includes "When You Wish Upon a Star", which is THE Disney song.

A Bug's Life A Bug's Life Product Image
Wreck-It Ralph Wreck-It Ralph Product Image

Wreck It, Wreck-It Ralph

Sugar Rush

Bug Hunt

When Can I See You Again

The first Disney animovie to use mix music. Also the first & only to combine orchestral with mix. You have to love those bittersweet tunes.

Sugar rush is the best song ever

Home on the Range Home on the Range Product Image

This one is the absolute worst

This movie is funny and great for kids
