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 Animated Disney Movies With the Best Music

1 The Lion King

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. - BKAllmighty

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

2 Aladdin

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 - fullymetal

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


3 The Little Mermaid

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.

4 Beauty and the Beast

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! - DisneyQueen

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

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

5 Mulan

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. - BKAllmighty

6 Frozen

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.

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

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.

7 The Nightmare Before Christmas

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

8 Tarzan

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. - BKAllmighty

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!

9 Tangled

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

10 Hercules

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 - fullymetal

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 - Disneylover

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

The Contenders

11 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. - Discord1

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

12 Oliver & Company

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

13 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

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

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!

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.

14 The Jungle Book

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

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

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)!

15 Cinderella

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

16 Pocahontas

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 - fullymetal

17 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

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

18 Fantasia

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

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

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

19 Big Hero 6

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

20 Monsters Inc

This should be further up!

Even they made memes of the theme song

21 Peter Pan

I love this movie

22 Pinocchio

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.

23 A Bug's Life
24 Wreck-It Ralph

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

25 Home on the Range

This one is the absolute worst - asantalo

This movie is funny and great for kids

26 Coco (2017)

I love coco. The music is great and it’s a movie both the little and I can agree on.

27 Sleeping Beauty

Love this movie, and I love the music. Once upon a dream is one of my favourite Disney songs

So good movie I love this aurora is so pretty

28 Zootopia

Ex- Try Everything

That annoying Shakira song? No thanks.

That song is amazing I love sharika

Shakira's song is not annoying your crazy if you think Shakira's song is annoying! 😠😬😡😣😤

29 The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

Nah-ha this movie has better songs than frozen why the heck is it so low?!?! a mojority of the people who made this probably didn't even watch the move because it's a direct to home sequel anddidnt give it a chance.Love will find a way,we are one and he lives in you are 100000000000000000000000000 times better that song about screwing the kingdom and not caring Let It Go.

30 Dumbo
31 The Princess and the Frog

This is an underrated movie. The beautiful music and stunning animation of the more sinister and evil scenes is captivating.

Tons of jazzy & danceable songs. I could listen and sing along all day. Super underrated.

I love this movie! And the music is amazing! Like the song "almost there" is a masterpiece

Amazing and underrated soundtrack

32 Disney's A Christmas Carol
33 Toy Story

These songs in Toy Story are my favorite of all the toy stories

I have all the toy story movies

34 Enchanted

Love this movie so much. The music is amazing. This is a good first date movie. The feel good music should make anyone have a great time.

35 Finding Nemo

The sound track is awesome and could be listen to on its own and still perfectly fits the movie.

I have a this Disney Pixar DVD before and I remember when I was bowin md I want to my neighbors and while my father is on it’ Way to pick me up they said I will brought it they said I can have it they said yes

36 Finding Dory

The Sia Song Is Awful - VideoGamefan5

37 Lady and the Tramp

Bella notte is so nostalgic it's better than some songs in movies up there but doesn't have that Disney style to it and it is kinda slow and a bit boring but still great

38 Atlantis: The Lost Empire
39 Smallfoot
40 Bambi
41 The Rescuers

Rescue rescue aid society. Loved this movie.

42 Cars
43 Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast
44 The Emperor's New Groove

That’s is mine I want it back

That’s mine throwback Disney musical ever as kid I watched when mine dad gives me this that’s was hilarious movie I see when I met mine Borther we watched it and it funny as we’ve were little boys and the way back

45 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World
46 Alice In Wonderland

The weirdness of the music fits the story and is done very well.

Love the Cheshire cat


47 Brother Bear

Greatest Disney soundtrack hands down! Phil Collins crafts a masterpiece of a soundtrack and it features the always incredible Tina Turner.

Really 22 this should be easily top 10 with tarzan. Phil collins nailed the tracks

Brother Bear is extremely underrated, especially when it comes to the soundtrack. Maybe I'm a little biased due to having a thing for 1980s soft rock, but this deserves higher than Frozen or Moana.

48 Monsters University
49 Toy Story 2
50 Toy Story 3
