This is number 1. The best song from the best opening scene of the best animated movie of all time.
Awesome song! It is also a beautiful and iconic scene from the movie!
It is so moving, so majestic, and the most iconic opening Disney ever made. It makes me cry, laugh, sing and smile. Such a magnificent piece of art!
And it moves us all - WhoIsJoe94 Comments
Love it. I got to meet the voice actress for ariel when I was 3 and she sang the song. I loved it - thenextsteplover
Its cute very cute, the little mermaid is a great movie
This song sings of a dream which, viscerally, we all share; that is, the dream to be part of “that” world, a world that differs for everyone. Whether it be out of the sea; on stage as a superstar; in a lab with a white coat, bending over a microscope; watching the sun rise over the Earth as you float weightlessly in space; or simply enjoying a cuppa by the seaside with a warm and happy family. All of us, have a world we dream desperately to be a part of...54 Comments
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
This song is amazing. The message is great and so's the tune. - Pebblepaw
This song makes my dad cry86 Comments
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.
You hate this song, jokes on you, but if you hate Mulan... HOW?! Mulan is such a beautiful movie, and it is my 3rd favorite disney movie (behind Fantasia and The Lion King). Mulan delivers a great message itself, but this song never fails to get stuck in our heads! It's a very brave song, and makes us all feel good inside. One thing... nothing beats "The Rite of Spring" from fantasia.
Hands down best and catchy song ever
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!190 Comments
#1 material right here
Yas. I love Meg. No chance no way
I like it, it gives me a romantic vibe
BEST SONG56 Comments
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
This song used style over substance. I do like Elsa's voice and also the visuals behind the song look gorgeous (as well as Elsa's look with her coordination dress and... you know what I mean) but the way this song was written was awful.
I think it should be first.199 Comments
Astonishing! The most beautiful song I have ever heard in my lifetime. I cry and feel such joy every time I see and hear it. Thank you for bringing it to me and my family. Love It!
This song makes me cry, even before the words start, even when I'm not watching the movie, even when I just hear the name. What I think is the best part is that the name belle translates to beauty- literally making beauty and the beast. I know basically everyone probably knows that but it took me over ten years to realise and I just figured it out!
Easily the second best romance cong of all time (Just after that song from Titanic). I love this song!! I hit above 9800 on Singstar on this song without cheating. Just try and beat 9880. Anyone beaten that score?? I didn't think so. - brom3780
THIS is the best disney song of ALL time, its about the importance of love beyond materialism and worldly values. This song is about humanity and more importantly, about MORALITY, something that recent disney movies have begun to forget (cough... cough... FROZEN.. cough... )38 Comments
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!
Ever since I was a baby, I watched Mulan. I grew up loving the movie and the character. Many say I actually look like Mulan and have some of her personality. When I was a little girl, I would watch the movie and sing this song and believe that I was Mulan. All in all, this song is beautiful, has emotion, has meaning, and means a lot to me.
I can play this on the piano! - MrHyde
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".59 Comments
This song is pure magic. Best Disney song ever!
The loveliest song I ever heard
Such a lovely classic!
Without a doubt the DISNEY THEME SONG36 Comments
This is by far the best song on this list, the best Disney song and one of the best songs of all time. Anthony Callea's version of this song is perfect. It's on his "Thirty" album and on YouTube. Such a beautiful rendition. If you want to hear it, listen right to the very end.
Emotional also a banger
This song is way better than a whole new world this should be number one this is the
best song ever.
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.34 Comments
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 about beautiful dreams and love. It deserves to be in the top ten
Another song that was stuck in my head for a week. - Pebblepaw
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!61 Comments
This is the best sond ever! how could you not fallin love with it/
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..
This song is amazing! So catchy!49 Comments
Disney is the only company that can make singing villains scary/awesome. The truly shown that with be prepared
So catchy! It’s really perfect for the movie! Scar is an amazing villain!
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
Awesome Villain song I love Scar40 Comments
I love this song! it captured my attention in the animation film of the little mermaid and it still does!
Okay Just being honest but how is this not one of the top 3 and why the heck is Pocahontas number 8 on this list. Who cares for Pocahontas 1 in 1 million people that's who. Wheres Hakuna Matata and Why is I can't wait to be king and Go the distance not in the top 10 this list is really skewered.
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.35 Comments
I love this song so much! It's really emotional for the characters in the story, and is much deeper than it seems. It really embraces the importance of family. - MirrorImage
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.41 Comments
Spooky but good
Yes, a truly great song.
Greatest disney song ever, now gypsy it's your turn, vote this song or your pure. Choose this or you will burn
As much as I love it, I wouldn't say it's the best disney song. But I certainly think it deserves to be higher than this.51 Comments
First or second place
What a wonderful phrase
This is number one I don't know who the heck put let it go up there instead of this43 Comments
Summarised : I just can't wait till Dad dies.
Simba: I just can't wait to be king.
(Next day Mufasa dies.)
Only number 18? I absolutely love this song and the movie. I think Simba is so cute.
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!31 Comments
This is supposed to be the best song in the entire world. Jazz is the best music as just in Disney there are at least 5 jazz songs that are the bomb. Plus Robin Williams voice makes this song entertaining as well as the Great music.
Very jazzy and lively
This song is a-ma-zing! besides the new version is also insane. Thank you Disney, Will Smith and Robbie Williams RIP.
How could you not love Robin Williams in this song?31 Comments
This is the greatest song ever! I can see it not being #1, but it should at LEAST be in the top 10!
How is this lower than Let it Go? This is clearly better and Let it Go is the worst!
Amazing I love this is so great should be number one
Needs to be HIGHER!9 Comments
This is classic song that everyone can remember
Makes me smile every time I have hear it - FAVE!
One of my all time favorite disney songs!
It is definitely a favorite to me and my kids.9 Comments
There is no better song in my opinion!
If you are looking for a feelgood song then this is definitely the one!
I fell in-love with this song when I first heard it when I was like 7! Now am 15 and me and my friends still enjoy singing along!
THIS should be #1! Best sing that Disney has ever made.
My jungle song was I wanna be like you song and I dance and I to be funny too
Jungle Book has an amazing soundtrack8 Comments
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.
Such an sweet and soothing song! Captures the true message of Disney4 Comments
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...
Once Upon A Dream is the best Disney song ever. It's romantic, magical, charming, and beautiful.7 Comments
One of the most chilling songs Disney has ever produced. - WhyAmIHere
God, if I ever met someone with this man's voice, I would be so utterly awestruck. The note at the very end hits me the hardest and is impossible to replicate. Thank God this wasn't buried at the very bottom.
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.6 Comments
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". ) - Discord
The message of the song is moving. We all have the tendency to think that we are not blessed not thinking how lucky we are compared to other people.
Out there was my favorite Disney hero song all time
This song got among the best vibrato I've ever heard :D1 Comment
Wow. Just... Wow. This is the best song I've ever heard for quite a few reasons:
1. It is 100% heartwarming.
2. WONDERFUL vocals.
3. They had Huey Lewis sing it.
4. It sets the tone for the movie it's from.
Seriously, this song is absolutely amazing. Disney has always had great songs in their movies, ever since Snow White in 1937, but Once Upon a Time in New York City was where I was completely won over. I even prefer this over every song in The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin combined. And if you knew me, you'd know that's REALLY saying something. So you guys keep on putting wonderful songs like this, and don't put awful songs like that yodeling song from Home on the Range. What I'm trying to say is this: Once Upon a Time in New York City should not be #27. IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!
The best Disney song of all time! Should be up there with The Circle of Life. It is so beautiful - from the music to the lyrics to the meaning behind it all, it's all just perfect. Not only that, but it is so inspiring, showing how even when things look bleak, it will all end up better. You can't listen to this song without feeling sincerely touched. To all of you out there who want to be touched and hear an awesome song - LISTEN TO ONCE UPON A TIME IN NEW YORK CITY, now!
I LOVE THIS SONG
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVES THIS SONG TO PIECES
I HATE this terrible Little Mermaid song so much
I HATE Ursula throughout this STUPID song
One of the sing speak Disney karaoke songs. Best villain song in the Disney catalogue
I HATE this bothersome song so much!2 Comments
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
Such a powerful and self-speaking song. Beautiful
This is admittedly one of the better Frozen songs (even as a Frozen disliker) but I absolutely love the reprise of this that was sang later on in the movie.
Just let all three Frozen songs go. All three are way overhyped. It's like none of you heard of Elton John or Phil Collins in the Lion King and Tarzan soundtrack, respectively.
This song is so beautiful and so fun to sing along. It is better than let it go
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!7 Comments
This song is so catchy and fun to sing. Definitely deserves to be higher up than the frozen crap.
This song make me hope not to be a zero anymore. Still in process
Best song hands down. Amazing vocals, catchy tune. Love it.
I sing that song too a lot2 Comments
I love it! - ArcticWolf
A direct to video song, but it's so melodic and powerful it makes the film a worthy sequel to the original and apart from Scar's "Be Prepared" it's the only song from Disney which I've downloaded for my iPod. You simply have to hear it to appreciate it.
This is definitely one of my Disney favorites because it brings me back to my childhood. I'm getting major nostalgia listening to all these Disney songs but it's worth it. I definitely miss being a kid
Actually it's really beautiful, reminds me of my dead Grandfather. :,( - Swiftdawn4 Comments
Whenever I think of Disney, I think of Be Our Guest. This song should be at least in the top 25.
NOTE: date written 3/2/17 this means that if this song gets past spot 25, my comment is half invalid half valid. Please take note
My favorite Disney song. Oh my gosh, this song is SO catchy and it is so amazing, the best Disney song EVER
Probably the most iconic song from, arguably, Disney's greatest movie
In my middle school's production of Beauty and the Beast I wanted nothing more than to be Lumiere. And yes, I am a girl. I wanted to be Lumiere because he had this sexy suaveness about him and he got to sing the coolest song: Be Our Guest. I, of course, was the showstopper. I had so much fun during this production and the memories with this song have stayed with me forever.5 Comments
It's the best song
I think will smith did it better
Robin Williams Makes this 10x Better
Best song in the franchise! So awesome and powerful and strong and dramatic!6 Comments
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.
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.
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.
what a nice song I love it I hear it over and over3 Comments
My favorite song in the entire movie!
Loved it and Tarzan is the best Disney movie ever and I loved it since I was only 2 and also it's the way it was composed and the singing
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!
As well as having an amazing rhythm, I think this song shows how Tarzan never gave up.
I just can't believe this song is not number one
It's the best soundtrack ever and I'm wondering why (i need a hero) of shrek 2 doesn't in the list?!6 Comments
I like Google Translated edition. - MaxAurelius
I think that Rapunzel has the most beautiful voice.
This is really a good song
It makes me sick to think Let it go is not only above this but ranked number one. I like Let It Go but for me Tangled is perfect perfection7 Comments
It's so beutiful
I honestly expected this to be in the Top 10. It's incredibly beautiful I get goosebumps every time I hear it.
It was Walt Disneys Favorite Song! (mentioned in a bbc podcast about this song)
Best song ever - Margarida
Amazing opening. The ensemble has an identifiable personality, with a bustling music and everyone has something to say.
Best open scene ever
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.6 Comments
NO I HATE THIS BLAND MOVIE! WHY DOES EVERYONE IN THIS WORLD LIKE THIS BAD FILM?! THIS SONG SUCKS AND IT IS CHEESY AND TRASH!
One of the best Disney songs! Let is go sucks and overrated.
Owl City is the best!
This song should be at number one! It's awesome, and so is Dove's vocals.
People don't appreciate the amazing singing
I think that this should be number 2! Love this song
Really this is the only good song in this movie
This song is so underrated - GodFlowey
This is one of my favorite Disney songs of ALL TIME. It's always stuck in my head, my mom is annoyed with me constantly singing it, and oh my gosh... Just, YES.
I can't stop singing this song1 Comment
No one sings like Gaston!
What! this should be number 1#! - maloneyscott

ONE OF DISNEY'S BEST SONG EVER!
This song has such a good meaning that it deserves to be higher. No one deserves to be left out or discriminated against. This song shares that perfectly.
This needs to be higher up. I'm not saying #1, because I understand people have different opinions, but come on. #53? People think this is a religious song, but I don't think it is. What I do think is that it is simply a plea for help. Esmeralda can't bear to see the state of her people and when all else fails, you tend to cry out for help. "I don't know if you can hear me, or if you're even there"; "I thought we all were children of God" - it's obvious she isn't even really sure about God herself, but she is being hopeful nonetheless, because what have you got to lose when you pray? Nothing, quite honestly. Anyway, I'm kind of digressing - this song is just hauntingly stunning, and the lyrics are profound and beautiful. Still relatable in many parts of the world, too - certainly where I'm from. It's the first Disney song that ever made me cry. Definitely deserves more credit.
Why is this so low? I have actually cried while listening to this song. It's in my opinion the most emotional and touching Disney-song ever made. Even a few months ago I used to think this song as a religious song and didn't like it, but then I listened to the lyrics, not the music. Esmeralda is just asking help for her people. I dislike when this song is considered as "too religious" "I don't know if you can hear me or if you're even there" She's clearly questioning God's existence and just wants to believe that there is someone to help the outcasts "God help the outcasts, or nobody will". This song really makes me want to help the people who don't have the same luck as I do.
All in all, this movie is a masterpiece, mainly because of the unbelievable music. With the exception of the song the gargoyles sing, every song from Hunchback of Notre Dame is purely amazing. In my opinion, it had the best soundtrack of any Disney film. Complete with high energy crowd songs, a phenomenal establishing song that is reprised again at the end to bring the story full circle, and touching songs sung by the story's hero, one of which is juxtaposed brillantly with Disney's best and most frightening villian song, this soundtrack has everything. However, the simple "God Help the Outcasts" outshines even the loudest and largest songs in this movie. I'm not the most religious, but this song gets me every time. Esmeralda's selfless and beautiful prayer begging God to help her fellow outcasts yet not do anything for her is the highlight of this film for me. It brings so much pure, heartbreaking emotion and shows the viewer a softer side to the firery gypsy heroine. It's just ...more5 Comments
This has to be in the Top 10, I cried so much from hearing this! It's such a sad, sweet, beautiful, bittersweet song! If you ever make a list of Top 10 Disney Songs That Make Us Cry, this should be listed in the Top 5 along with When She Loved Me from Toy Story 2, No Way Out from Brother Bear, Baby Mine from Dumbo, and God Help the Outcasts from The Hunchback of Notre Dame! I place this as the second best Disney song, next to Love Is a Song from Bambi (which is also a beautiful song).
I love the lyrics to this song and the message it sends, it relates perfectly to the pain of parting ways with the people we love. But at the same time, it shows that as long as we remember our loved ones, they're never truly gone. Not only that, but the music and vocals are beautiful as well.
Such a sad, sweet, heartbreaking, and beautiful song. This song is about having to part ways with someone we love, and how they will always be with us in our hearts even when we can't be with them. Every pet owner whose pet has died or been given away will relate to this. This should be much higher than #41. Top 20 at least!
I love this song! It is so sad yet beautiful, with a great message about remembering our loved ones even when we can't be with them. I may not have cried but I definitely was touched by these words. If you have a friend or loved one who just died, you should sing this at their funeral.
This song is just so much fun to listen to! Made me want to be Aladdin, especially at the end when he grabbed the carpet and jumped out the window.
How is this not even top 10 let alone top 20? Aladdin has an amazing soundtrack, probably the best in the entire Disney lineup!
Probably the most underrated disney song - Ajkloth
One jump ahead song was my favorite Disney prince song all time1 Comment
Far more original than many of the "commercially" successful songs on the list.
Why so low? This song is literally the best Disney song ever!
It is very creative and perfectly sums up the unique movie
Why are some of you people so rude on here.5 Comments
