Best The Lion King Franchise Songs

The best songs from The Lion King franchise including movies, television series, and Broadway.
The Top Ten
1 Be Prepared

I love Be Prepared!
Everyone knows that disney villains have the best songs. And Scar is one of my favorite disney villains. He has an incredible singing voice.
Be Prepared is so beautiful and haunting. It let's you know exactly who the villain of the movie is. Truly a wonderful villain song.

I know that your powers of retention are as wet as a warthog's backside,but thick as you are, pay attention,my words are be prepared for a chance of a lifetime, be prepared for...But you will be rewarded when at last I am giving my dues, and in justice...

2 Circle of Life

This song should be number 1! The opening scene in the movie touched my heart so much, me and my sister started tearing up a little. Especially the key changes in the song get me every time. This movie is the best Disney movie ever made.

This song should be number one! in this song, they talk about all our animals, and that we need to respect all living creatures great and small!

Condensing everything so complex into something so simple

3 Can You Feel the Love Tonight

I absolutely LOVE the lion king and all of its songs but this song is definitely my favourite. it's SO CUTE!

This song is the best love song ever, very heartfelt and has a good tune to it!

I love this song it is a type of song that warms your heart

4 I Just Can't Wait to Be King

My favorite always stuck in my head because it's the best I also like can you feel the love tonight

I love this song so much!
I watched The Lion King so many times growing up. I've always found this song so amazing!

I love this song what the devil is it doing here instead of on top.

5 Hakuna Matata

Kind of an annoying song, considering it's encouraging simba to run away from his problems and be lazy, and almost letting his family starve back at his home. Not dealing with life simply because you don't want to is NOT a good virtue. It's catchy, but doesn't make any sense to me.

Definitely the best lion king song, the lyrics, the tune and the fact that it is so happy

Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful phrase, Hakuna Matata, ain't no passing craze!

6 He Lives in You

This song is absolutely gorgeous. It is in Lion King (the musical) and Rafiki sings it to Simba about how Mufasa still lives in Simba. It gives me goosebumps every single time I listen to it. A very cool fact is that I am in Lion King Jr right now, and I am playing Rafiki. I cannot wait to sing this and Circle of Life. More people need to know this song!

I love this song and be prepared, but be prepared is, in my opinion, harder to make sound good, only the best of voices can pull it off, and I've heard versions that just didn't cut it. This song is more constantly good and overall my favorite

7 Not One of Us

I watched the second lion king all the time and this song I remember so well! The second lion king is very good, but not as good as the first one though. I watched both of them equally and they're both near and dear to my heart.

This is the only song in the franchise that I enjoy other languages more.

I love the lion king! It's one of my favorite animated movies

8 My Lullaby

Great song! So not violent plus it's not like it's swears! # I love this song!

This song was surprisingly dark and violent for a children's film!

This song got me every time at the ' key change!

9 We are One

It is my all time favorite lion king song

It's beautiful and I love this song

10 Love Will Find a Way

Love will find away is so beautiful and awesome. Love will find away should be number 1

Why is this awesome song down here? It should be on top

Love Will Find a Way will find a way to number 1

The Contenders
11 The Madness of King Scar

I know this was in the musical but I add it because it was originally meant for the movie. And also the animation tribute for it is absolutely perfect. Definitely should watch it.

I saw the animation tribute it was very good.

I wonder who animated it it was good

12 Morning Report

The best song zazu kills it on the vocals, plus he actually reports the morning.

I kind of am obsessed with this song...

13 ...To Die For

If you didn't know, To Die For is the song that comes in when the stampede scene comes in. This should be in the top ten! It's so powerful, and it pulls you buy your heartstrings.

No lyrics... I think...

But good song

14 Shadowland

This should truly be higher on the list. I'm completely obsessed with it. I'm playing Nala in my school's production of The Lion King, so I have the honor of being able to sing it. Honestly, I'm not sure how I'll be able to get through it without bawling my eyes out. It's a beautiful, emotional, and moving masterpiece.

Most emotional and heart-catching of all the songs. Seeing this performed live is a whole journey, and this song always makes me cry. It is the start of the climax and just utterly beautiful. I feel this one in my soul.

15 King of Pride Rock

This should be in the top 5! I always get chill in the part when Simba climbs the rock!

16 Upendi

What the hell were the creators on while making this song.

17 We're the Same (Sisi Ni Sawa)

I love this song!
Both Kion and Jasiri have beautiful singing voices. And the song is so catchy! It plays in my head over and over again.
How are there not more Lion Guard songs on this list?! It's such a good show!
My favorite Lion Guard song is A New Way to Go. But Sisi Ni Sawa is my second favorite. No competition.

I love this song! If you think about it it applies to real life! Whether we are black or white we are the same. If someone tells you u will never be good enough because of your skin tone, tell them sisi ni sawa

18 Endless Night

I've spend endless nights listening to this song

19 Chow Down

Yet another song from the musical, but it definitely deserves more recognition!

20 Already
21 Call of the Guard

I love the lion guard! I hope they make a season 4 one day. I wish Kion and Fuli ended up together though. I ship them.

22 Simba Confronts Scar

The guitar solo in the end was amazing, so was the harmony

23 Luau Hawaiian Treat

Just noticed this song isn't in here.

24 This Land
25 Lions Over All
