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 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...

This song really pulls together the lion king and makes it an interesting movie. Scar descibes his plan to kill Mufasa to the hyenas in this song. He gets all the bad guys on the same note so they can rule Pride Rock. Even though scar makes some promises that he doesn't exactly keep, his miscievous mind still creates the wonderful plot of the movie😄

This is the song that builds the story of the Lion King. Everything about this song is amazing

OMG this song is the the best song EVER I can can clearly understand why it's the first on the list

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

Till we find our place! On the path unwinding! It's the circle... the circle of liife!

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

It is actually a good song it should be top 3

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 what the devil is it doing here instead of on top.

It show he not scared and it show are kids to go off and be you

I like the rhythm and I can get it stuck in my head for a while.

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!

Hakuna Matata is the best song ever sung by Pumbaa and Timon!

6 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

Definitely! Although, I thought it was called just "exile"...

7 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

He Lives In You is the best song in Lion King by far. Both the movie version and musical. It is a stunning work of music.

Shame this was not in the movie, as it is probably the best song in the musical.

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!

Cool song this is got to be number seven or 8.

9 We are One

It is my all time favorite lion king song

It's beautiful and I love this song

I only like the melody

My very favorite song. has helped me through some tough times. now I sing it to my siblings, and plan to sing it to my own daughter one day. it has a valuable wisdom there

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

This song is a complete piece of crap.

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...

Gosh this song sucks.

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

This song is to die for

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.

Why is this not already on the list? It's awesome! If you don't know what it is, it's from the Lion King Original Broadway cast recording. Listen to it!

It is such a powerful and deep song! Nala sings it with so much emotion because she has to save her home from the hyenas and their King Scar!

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 Endless Night

I've spend endless nights listening to this song

This song is the best the smothing voices and all the amazing background music and vocels and just the lyrics are amazing vote for this song

18 We're the Same (Sisi Ni Sawa)

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

Beautiful song showing that hyenas and lions can be friends, to put your differences aside and accept new friends of different kinds.

Ok honestly this and Jasiri inspired me to watch the show nothing else.

Beautiful African phrase song

19 Chow Down

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

20 Already

This... Is the best song in the lion King Stars Album, video are coming from different people. The beat is awesome. 🙏😇

21 Call of the Guard
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
