Top 10 Best Disney Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'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

Awesome, brings out a real man out of me.

2 Let It Go - Frozen

Let it go has to be The single most overrated song possibly ever. Those who think it's utterly "the most inspiring and emotive" song they've ever heard clearly have never heard or seen or cared about anything more diverse than this pop musical theatre style song on self acceptance. You want real lessons of humanity in a Disney song? Watch Pocahontas to hear songs battling racism and equality. Hunchback of Notre dame to experience real rejection and a test of morals in gorgeous symphony and choir. Hercules to sing about feeling like an outsider and then rising to the top. You want vocals? Sleeping beauty. Princess and the frog. It's just a shame to see an overpopulated song overshadow MUCH BETTER (written, sounding, etc.) Disney songs.

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.

I have a very strong music background but for me, the decision to like or dislike a song is based on emotions, not necessarily on the musical aspect of the song. So, let's be a little more understanding of those that choose an "overrated" song over one that has a lesson to it - it's all about how it affects YOU, and the feelings it evokes within you that makes it a #1 choice in someone's opinion. Variety and Diversity... make the world a more interesting place, right?

3 A 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

Let it Go is better than A Whole New World? Forget that! This song always has a place in my heart. Aladdin and Jasmine both make the perfect duet, love them both and the movie! Aladdin has the best singing voice than all the men and some of the princess's, that goes for Jasmine also. One of my favourite disney couples sing one of the most perfect disney songs. This is why I want a Disney Wedding

The prettiest Disney song in my opinion, I want this played at my wedding LoL

This is one of the greatest disney songs ever

4 Colors of the Wind - Pocahontas

I heard this song for the first time just a few hours ago, but I have already memorized it and it has quickly become one of my favorite songs. Ever. For people who haven't seen Pocahontas, and have never heard this song, it is positively amazing. I guess it's the kind of song that, being from a slightly older movie, you never think about when there are "cool new songs" like Let it Go (which, by the way, is highly overrated), but it's truly one of the most beautiful, inspirational songs Disney has ever written. The lyrics are so great, and this song really puts you in a new perspective. It shows you that a lot of people just don't care about the beauty of nature, and it just really inspires you. I love this song and its meaning.

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

The first time I listened to song, I broke down into tears. The beautiful lyrics cried of so many details we miss in our blind savagery, and rung true for so many things, bringing our attention to environmental awareness and human arrogance. "You can own the Earth and still,/All you'll own is Earth until/you can paint with all the colors of the wind." Incredibly true and the most inspiring in the history of Disney music.

Should be top

5 Circle of Life - The 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

This should definitely be #1. There are many good Disney songs, but this is the only one that gives me chills every time I hear it. The lyrics are so powerful!

6 Can You Feel the Love Tonight - The 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..

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.

This is my all time favorite it should be #1. It shows the love between them and that's beautiful also they have great voices.

7 Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid

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 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.

My favourite Disney song "Vuelie" isn't on this list but "Part of your world" is my second favourite. There's something so magical about this song, the lyrics really come from the heart. Yes, Ariel wants Prince Eric but he's not the only reason that she wants to be a human. She's interested in their culture, inventions and all the things that are made possible when you have legs. Deserves its place in the top 5

Peachy tune

8 Reflection - 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".

Mulan is so powerful because it's about a normal girl trying to find her place in a rigid society. It subverts gender norms and is less about the romance and more about the people. The eventual marriage between Shang and Mulan is not a prize or the end goal, it's a bonus - completely non-central to the story. If they cut that last scene where Shang goes to visit the Fa family, it would be a perfectly great story all on its own, not that I don't love Shulan. This is why Mulan will always be, by far, my favorite Disney Heroine. I don't want to call her a princess because she's not a princess - she's a warrior.

I think this song is beautiful and can really relate to a person feeling let down and alone,
Another thing I love

9 When 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.

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

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.

The timeless anthem of Disney. There's no doubting this inspirational song should be first place.

10 Go 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. Though I don't think it is the very best (2nd because Can You Feel The Love is #1), I adore this song. It's my friend and I's song that we constantly sing together.

Amazing

? DuckTales Theme - DuckTales

Best song ever the reboot is super good.

How was this not already on here? - 445956

The Contenders

11 I 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!

Okay, this song should totally be number 1! I like let it go, but this song has a beautiful melody, beautiful lyrics and so much more actual feeling and meaning. I also tear up at this scene. Plus, you can't go wrong with a romantic Disney duet.

Y dis no top 10 dis great song

12 Beauty 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 song

13 Be Prepared - The Lion King

This is number one. Frozen being ahead of this is a joke. This song has the power to actually bring tears to your eyes. I'm 31. And I listened to it the other day And it actually made me emotional. Or another song from Disney can do this. My other favorite would probably be Pocahontas colors of the wind. C it also has great meaning about nature and our beautiful Mother Earth. But nothing comes close to imagining circle of life's last few lines and remembering all of the animals bow to show respects. Do powerful

"Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bad. Be prepared! *Scar's evil laugh*"

This should be number #1

Scar is a savage. all to be said.

14 You'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.

Favorite Disney song hands down! Familial love is such a celebrated topic in Disney movies as it should be and is a reason I love this song. This song is special to my dad and I because of what it signifies: the bond between parent and kid. This should be in the top 10 as it is one of few Disney songs to win an academy award for best song.

I am simply in love with this song. I like the song better than the movie.

Good

15 I Won't Say (I'm in Love) - Hercules

I'm really not sure why this song is rated so low...I love Disney songs in general, and the top ten are really good, but this song should be in those ten! Still tied for first in my brain. You can hardly beat a good Disney duet, but for Disney heroine songs...this needs to be up with Reflection! The way she hasn't lost her sanity and personality just because a guy appears, but is still stating her feelings, is incredible! Not to mention the Muses...their part is so much fun to sing along with!

I love this song so much! Its one of my favorite Disney love songs! It should be higher! - ortolani

It's a great song I have it stuck in my head "my head is screaming get a grip girl! " Is my FAVORITE lyric

This song should be in the top ten. You better believe it when I say I have this song on replay.

18 Under 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.

Not my favourite Disney song, but it is still one of the best classical Disney songs of all time. I would choose this over let it go from Frozen any day.

That's my Jam!

19 The Bare Necessities - The Jungle Book

Makes me smile every time I have hear it - FAVE!

One of my all time favorite disney songs!

This should definitely be higher!

20 Heaven's Light / Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This is probably the most underrated Disney film and songs. It has brilliant lyrics showing the true character of each individual in the film. The background Latin chorus is absolutely amazing and intertwines with the English lyrics to perfect contrast in meaning; a Latin prayer for forgiveness is in the background of Hellfire, for example. It is truly one of the great masterpieces of Disney.

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.

Heaven's Light was an absolute perfect transition into Hellfire, which is the greatest song from Disney ever. The visual sequence? Amazing. The red hooded figures, the fire Esmeralda, the smoke Esmeralda... everything was just amazing! And then the actual song, it's so dark, so mature, and it has great lyrics and LATIN! Plus, the latin prayers and phrases really help get the point of the song across further. Definitely the best Disney song.

I hate this movie! And the songs are incredibly corny and boring!
And the characters are so serious! Can't they just lighten it up a bit?
And it definitely does not at any circumstances deserve a live action remake! 😡😡😡😠😠😠😠😠
