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

1 The Lion King The Lion King

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

Everyone listen! Lion king has the best music by far, especially since it wasn't even the main Disney team creating it

Ex: Circle of Life, Be Prepared, Can You Feel the Love Tonight - fullymetal

The circle of life alone puts this at number 1.
However, there's also Hakuna matata, Can you feel the love tonight, Upendi, He lives in you, We are one and Love will find a way. Even both of the villain songs are great.

3 Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast

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

Most wonderful and loving sound,music and songs. A Disney movie that shall be a legend and a tale as old as time.

4 Mulan 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?

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

Don't forget TRUE TO YOUR HEART 98 degrees and STEVIE WONDER bringing it home!

Ex: Reflection, I'll Make a Man Out of You - fullymetal

5 Tangled Tangled

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

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

6 Hercules Hercules

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

7 Frozen Frozen

I wasn't a huge fan of this movie, I found it a little tedious and too close to Tangled, without outshining it.

Frozen is not the best movie, but the music is

No, Just A Humongous No - VideoGamefan5

8 The Little Mermaid The Little Mermaid

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

Ex: Part of Your World, Under the Sea - fullymetal

9 The Nightmare Before Christmas The Nightmare Before Christmas

This movie has the best and most beautiful music.

10 The Hunchback of Notre Dame The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Love the songs especially belle's of Notre same and hellfire plus I love the film

Ex: Bells of Notre Dame, Hellfire, God Help the Outcasts - fullymetal

By far the best music in a Disney movie. Just ignore the gargoyles.

The Contenders

11 Tarzan 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

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

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

Hard to top Phil Collins

14 Oliver & Company 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

15 The Jungle Book 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!

16 Pinocchio Pinocchio

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

17 Moana Moana

This isn't out yet. But the music in the trailer is good. - Discord1

18 Fantasia Fantasia

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

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 Zootopia Zootopia

That annoying Shakira song? No thanks.
