Top 10 Best Disney Songs

The Top Ten
1 A Whole New World - Aladdin

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. I love them both and the movie! Aladdin has a better singing voice than all the men and some of the princesses, and the same goes for Jasmine. One of my favourite Disney couples sings one of the most perfect Disney songs. This is why I want a Disney Wedding.

In 1992, the film Aladdin took the whole world on a magic carpet ride. This song has been in countless weddings and occasions all over the world. However, this song will always be special to me. I asked my girlfriend out to this song (I played it on the violin) after dinner in the city. I was kind of scared people would bust me for busking without a license. And finally, at the end of my little performance, she said yes :).

2 Circle of Life - The Lion King

I have a few favourites. All of the Lion King songs, so I will vote for all of them. This is my opinion, I know all of the words and the video is really cool. Anyway, who in the world hates or has never watched this song? I do it in my school choir and it is so fun to sing, listen to, or even watch it on DVD. My best part is the harmony because I love the low part. In my conclusion, it is the BEST!

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 The Lion King, so this isn't my single favorite, but it's definitely one of them.

3 I'll Make a Man Out of You - Mulan

It's fun, it's catchy, and it really is a milestone for Mulan and the troops. It's great for sing-alongs, and even in my high school classes, people play it and know all the words! It also brings a heavy meaning, as while Shang sings about being a man, the woman impersonating a man manages to raise herself above the stance of a '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!

4 Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid

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.

My favorite Disney song, "Vuelie," isn't on this list, but "Part of Your World" is my second favorite. 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 human. She's interested in their culture, inventions, and all the things that are made possible when you have legs. It deserves its place in the top 5.

5 Let It Go - Frozen

Indeed, the best song for me is "Let It Go" from Frozen. I am truly awestruck and stunned by the scene where Elsa sings it and builds her "ice-lated" castle. It's not just the video that impresses me, but above all, the song itself. It is really an inspirational, emotional, and very catchy song. Not only does it have good beats and instruments, but it also teaches us to "let it go". To let our fears go, not care what others say, be ourselves and have magic, and so on.

It's also a great song to listen to, regardless of your mood. Like I said before, it is an emotional song - it brings out more than one emotion. For me, what really struck me about this song was the "emotional progress" of it: from despair and isolation, the lyrics evolve to become hopeful, heavenly, and courageous.

I have also listened to the classic and other Disney songs as well, even those from 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 Man Out of You", and so much more. But for me, above all, the most inspiring and influential song (and probably the best and greatest) is "Let It Go". We just can't seem to "let it go".

6 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). However, 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 really inspires you. I love this song and its meaning.

7 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! It's 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 there 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!

It's amazing, and I bet that I am listening to it right now! The song is catchy and really relatable to some people. The song is also funny, and she suppresses her feelings for Hercules in it! Yeah, that's all I have, but I love this song! I also like it because the muses just make the song fun to sing along with, and now I have the song stuck in my head! I think about it at school as well!

8 Reflection - Mulan

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.

9 Go the Distance - Hercules

The song is about a boy who feels like he doesn't belong in his village and goes the extra mile to find where his place is in order to feel accepted. This is something all children go through in life at some point, and it's made very relatable to Hercules.

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.

10 Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast

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 realize, and I just figured it out!

Beauty and the Beast is a mix of fun, cheerful, comical, fascinating, happy, cute, awesome, good, great, spectacular, etc. But the message is really to follow what's deep down in your heart. Belle found her beast, and the beast found her beauty. But Belle didn't focus on the beast's features. She focused on his heart. And how he turns out to be kind, caring, and sweet. Beauty and the Beast is a favorite among girls, boys, men, and women! Emma Watson did a great job playing her role as Belle! We shouldn't focus on appearances. We should focus on the heart! This is my all-time favorite Disney movie!

The Contenders
11 When You Wish Upon a Star - Pinocchio

Honestly, this should be number one. I still can't believe Let It Go is number two! This song is a solid classic, while Let It Go is so overrated. By the way, I cannot see Beauty and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast here. What's with that?

So hard to choose between so many amazing nostalgic works of art. How on Earth is a Frozen song ahead of this? This is real Disney. This is talent. This is beautiful. So underrated.

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.

12 Can You Feel the Love Tonight - The Lion King

I prefer Elton John's end credits version best. It's so beautiful! The original one has this taste that you don't, and won't get from a female. Nice and bold, it provides a certain emotion that only Elton John knows how to use. His voice is deep, and even when high, he gives a beautiful sense of emotion to listeners. Not to mention, the orchestra harmonizes super well with Elton John's voice to pull even more emotion from the song.

This is simply the best song out of the lot. My favorite. I love the orchestra and the beautiful lyrics. All of you mention Jackie Evancho, but to be honest, Elton John's version sounds true and beautiful, giving more emotions. Pure beauty.

13 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 simply 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 breathtaking!

14 Hakuna Matata - The Lion King

This song is totally amazing! It gives so much hope to children and adults too. Plus, Pumbaa and Timon are the best characters in the whole film, and the song really captures their personality. Please vote for this song! It will mean no worries for the rest of your days!

I absolutely love Let It Go right now. But this song is my childhood! It will always be one of my favorites! I am quite surprised it's not in the top 10!

I'm so happy to see most of The Lion King songs in the top 20! But for me, Hakuna Matata takes the cake.

15 Be Prepared - The Lion King

This is number one. The fact that Frozen is ranked 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. No other Disney song can do this. My other favorite would probably be Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas. 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 bowing to show respect. So powerful.

16 Under the Sea - The Little Mermaid

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? One in a million people, that's who. Where's Hakuna Matata, and why aren't I Just Can't Wait to Be King and Go the Distance in the top 10? This list is really skewed.

I lost a bet because I couldn't stop myself from singing along to this. I may have outgrown The Little Mermaid years ago (according to some people), but this song will always hold a very special place in my heart.

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.

17 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The song "Hellfire" is brilliant because it portrays Frollo as more than an antagonist who enjoys hurting innocent characters. After this musical number, we can now see him as a man with complex emotions - even fragile ones like lust and fear of rejection. Although his motives for hurting Quasimodo and others remain unjustified, we at least start to know that he is not a two-dimensional, pure evil character. "Hellfire" also emphasizes the restraint Frollo's Christian belief places on him, which makes the musical number even more interesting. Needless to say, the song is a critical part of Frollo's character development.

The visual sequence of the song, which includes a fiery incarnation of Esmeralda, red hooded figures, and a metaphorical purple cloak, is both mysterious and stunning. The choir and church instruments in the background add a dramatic effect to the music. The complexity of emotion shown here is unparalleled in any other Disney song. The only reason this musical number is so low on the list is that "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a relatively unknown movie compared to many others.

18 You'll Be in My Heart - Tarzan

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 me because of what it signifies: the bond between parent and child. This should be in the top 10, as it is one of the few Disney songs to win an Academy Award for Best Song.

Touching, cozy, and warm lyrics to me. I always cry gratefully when listening to this song. The lyrics, combined with the music, gave me the strength and a positive attitude to live on.

19 I Just Can't Wait to Be King - The Lion King

So bouncy and cheerful! I don't care how old I am. I still love Disney songs and sing a lot of them every day. This one is the song that gets stuck in my head the most. When I was little, whenever this part came on while I was watching The Lion King, I'd rewind it over and over again and sing along. Ah, those were the days.

This song is peppy, full of heart, and great for duets! I started singing this song in the car with friends, and of course, I'm Simba! I just love how the different characters have different views. However, some other songs like "Under the Sea" have only one view.

20 Friend Like Me - Aladdin

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, along with the great music.

I love this song! Robin Williams did an EXCELLENT job, and I find this to be the catchiest Disney song by far. It is so fun and upbeat.

Very catchy tune. I like both the Robin Williams and Will Smith versions. They both create a very fun song.

21 The Bare Necessities - The Jungle Book

I sing this song so much it annoys the heck out of my best friend. Best Disney song ever!

Admit it.
This song is stuck in your head now.

Makes me smile every time I hear it - favorite!

22 Prince Ali - Aladdin

Best song in the franchise! So awesome, powerful, strong, and dramatic!

22? This song is so funny, awesome, and fun to sing along to!

Great! I watched Aladdin a few hours ago, and now this song is stuck in my head.

23 I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song) - The Jungle Book

Love it!
There is no better song in my opinion!
If you are looking for a feel-good song, then this is definitely the one! I fell in love with this song when I first heard it at the age of 7. Now, at 15, my friends and I still enjoy singing along!

It has such a rhythm. It makes me want to dance whenever I hear it. The proof that it has survived the passage of time is that the song from the 1967 movie was used in the 2016 version, despite it not being a musical.

Possibly the most fun song ever performed. The only reason it isn't number 1 is because it's from the 1960s. It hits most of the top 10 out of the park. Ooo be doo, people, vote for this one.

24 Once Upon a Dream - Sleeping Beauty

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, or rent them from Netflix. I don't care how you watch them, just see them.

25 A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes - Cinderella

I voted for this after seeing how shockingly low it was ranked! This is an amazing song, a classic Disney piece. Although I like the newer princesses as well, Cinderella remains 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, 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.
