Best Disney Villain Songs


The Top Ten

1 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This song is so intense, so adult, so badass! And not to mention part of it shares the tune of part of the main theme of the film, The Bells Of Notre Dame. The lyrics are so extraordinary, and not something you'd think of when you think Disney -- you can feel Frollo's emotions and the torment he's going through throughout this scene. And the voice is just the perfect voice for a villain; so threateningly evil, it's a shame I can't remember the actor's name right now. And this has nothing to do with the song, but I love the dialogue directly after it
"I had a little trouble with the fireplace" cracks me up every time!

This the only love song I ever liked. - MorganDunn

It's not my fault, that in God's plan he made a Devil so much stronger than a man.

Most beautifully written song about a complex character. This song makes him a little bit more like the Frollo from the novel who is extremely desperate.

2 Be Prepared - Lion King

This song is really good scary good this should be number 1 this song is the best one ever.

How does Scar know so many vocabulary words! When I was younger about 5 or 6, I watched this and I had no idea what he was saying. Now that I understand this, I can't even explain how well Jeremy Irons portrayed Scar and became my favorite Disney villain and sang this song so well

He admits flat out that he wants to kill his brother and nephew, actually most of the song is not his plan this just shows how diabolical, ambitious, and cunning he really is.

Love this song

3 Poor Unfortunate Souls - The Little Mermaid

I love this song (not only because of my Little Mermaid bias) because of how Ursula gets her point across. It just shows her true character in a song that gives away how manipulative and ambitious she is.

AWESOME! How is this not higher, at least at 2

In my opinion, the best ones are My Lullaby, Snuff out the light and Evil like me, but they're not on the list, so this one gets my vote.

Ursula is Satan, the eels are demons, Triton is God and Ariel is one of God's children being fought over. - Patty_C

Interesting theory. I doubt this was the intention, but it's plausible. - Cyri

4 Friends on the Other Side - The Princess and the Frog

I love this better than any other

It's so catchy best villain song ever Unpopular opinion: I don't like Hellfire.

Why is hellfire so popular. This should be number one. At first it doesn't sound that good, but then the second half is just awesome. - Aaronwahed

This is the best

5 Mother Knows Best - Tangled

The forshadowing in this song for the rest of the movie is amazing. The reprise of this songs really shows mother gothles real intentions

Amazing and needs more love - flowergriffon

Best Song Ever! I think it is probably one of my most favourite disney song along with the other Tangled songs

My fave song of the movie. Donna Murphy can really sing! Not to mention, the reprise gives me the chills. "If he's lying, don't come crying! "

6 Gaston - Beauty and the Beast

This deserves to be number 1.

The reprise when they're so happy about doing underhanded, cheap tricks to get their own selfish goals is so funny. They've got a lot of enthusiasm! - Knucklewood

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs, every morning to help me get large. Now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs, so I'm roughly the size of a barge!

This is one of those few times you actually get to use this different type of language.

7 Savages - Pocahontas

This song was so intense, I pray for it to stop!

I don't watch Pocahontas a whole lot but out of any songs of disney classic movies is this one and Friends On the Other Side.

Pretty G song, what's up with it being so low lads?

Benedict Cumberbatch may have played 3 villains that I know of (Smaug, Khan, and Dormammu), but Stiers did it perfectly first by playing both Cogsworth and Ratcliffe. You could take this song and put it on anything else where both races don't think highly of the other. *Cough* Rick vs Negan *Cough*

9 Mother Knows Best (Reprise) - Tangled

MOTHER knows best

Powerful singing, and every single line has meaning. Comparing this reprise with the original just makes this even more scary and intense. It shows how Gothel has gone from plain protective to absolutely controlling.

Donna Murphy'so voice is so powerful. This is what makes the reprise even more amazing

Hercules has 3 versions of the Gospel Truth. The version the person is referring to is "The Gospel Truth II"

The Gospel Truth I is about Zeus defeating the Titans.
The Gospel Truth II is about Hades.
The Gospel Truth III is about Zeus and Hera grieving over Baby Hercules' kidnapping.

That's not a villain song

Still a good song though

Davy Jones's theme is Hans Zimmer at his finest. It has a brilliant melody played in a vulnerable way on a music box and then powerfully on an organ, appropriate for Davy Jones.
