Best Disney Villain Songs


The Top Ten

1 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Such an intense and beautifully written song!

It is the best villain song ever! Where else would you get to see a song about lust and HELL in a Disney movie? Frollo gives me the creeps. I think that's why he's my favorite Disney villain...

The other disney songs sound like they're out of a musical, but this is straight forward OPERA level! Amazing choir and amazing lyrics. Simply the best.

3 Poor Unfortunate Souls - The Little Mermaid

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.

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

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

This is my #1 favorite

4 Mother Knows Best - Tangled

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! "

Best song of the movie. Very good villain song, I'm happily surprised it's in top 5. - irismatidia

One of my favorite songs from Tangled. I love the film, it's the best!

Mother knows best song was on my now Disney cd right now

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

Dr. Facilier is one of those villains where you see him and go holy crap this is gonna be a good movie. For every bad moment in the movie, Facilier gave us a great one. And Friends On The Other Side is one of those moments.

Friends on the other side should be number one. It is so good I know every word

Surprising good song. Who knew Keith David was secretly a great singer.

I like that song better

6 Gaston - Beauty and the Beast

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

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

And every last inch of me's covered in hair - maloneyscott

7 Savages - Pocahontas

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.

8 Oogie Boogie's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is the best villain song ever! This and Friends on the other side. BEST BEST BEST

This song is underrated like the movie. - McKing1003

YOU'RE JOKINg - nickdoritosyum


9 Mother Knows Best (Reprise) - Tangled

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

10 Cruella de Vil - 101 Dalmatians

This deserves #1 it's my favorite of like EVER!

It is the best song of Disney
