Top 10 Pixar Movies with the Greatest Soundtracks

Pixar always knows how to create fantastic original soundtracks and scores to really get you into the movie you're watching. Here is a list of the best of them.

The Top Ten

1 Toy Story Toy Story Product Image

You've Got a Friend in Me is a wonderful song, about friendship and love for each other. It explores the friendship of Woody and Buzz throughout the Toy Story movies, showing that they will be friends forever, at the Infinity and Beyond.

"You Got a Friend in Me", "Strange Things", classic. This is the soundtrack that we all grew up with, and it still holds up more than 20 years later. Thanks Randy Newman.

Come on guys! Pixar has way better OSTs than this (not saying it isn't good)! You guys only vote for this because it is the first Pixar Film!

"You Got a Friend in Me" gets stuck in my head after I watch any Toy Story movie.

2 The Incredibles The Incredibles Product Image

Just a flat out amazing score with a fantastic action main theme.

Pretty good... I don't think it deserves to be THIS high on the list

My favorite Pixar movie with some of my favorite music EVER! The theme is great and it’s so fun to hear and play!

One of best film soundtracks

3 Up Up Product Image

The soundtrack of Up properly conveys a lot of the emotions this 'kids' movie actually goes to express. After re-watching one of my favorite films when I was notably younger and actually knowing what really went on in the film adds a significant larger amount of weight to the beautiful scores of this movie. Also 'The Spirit of Adventure' is a brilliant song. If I were to hear it outside of the film I'd think it was on one of those "Top Hits of The 30's! " lists.

The music that played at the beginning of the film... when the transition went from happy to sad, I almost felt like crying when the piano was being delicately played as it showed Carl all alone at his late wife's funeral...

A truly magnificent score that conveys the spirit of adventure and the vitality of life.

The Married Life tune and how they incorporate that tune throughout the entire movie.

4 Inside Out Inside Out Product Image

The greatest Pixar OST ever very beautiful and heartfelt... Yet no one cares about the music only the movie (which is still great)

Pixar's greatest score in my opinion. It helps to elicit every emotion that is expressed in the film.

The one with Bing bong sacrifising, made me cry and getting goosebumps every time I think about it.

5 Finding Nemo Finding Nemo Product Image

The music makes the best moments of the film even better. From the opening titles, to Nemo hearing about his Dad's journey, to Nemo lying on the ocean floor, telling Marlin he doesn't hate him, it's all brilliant. Thomas Newman is extremely underrated.

Nemo Egg is the best music theme of any animated movie, alongside Test Drive from How To Train Your Dragon. Both are really great movies with great soundtracks!

An amazing score that truly reflects an underwater feeling coupled with a classic rendition of "Beyond the Sea".

This soundtrack is so soothing. every time I hear it it reminds me of my childhood. It gets stuck in your head in a good way

6 Cars

Route 66, Sh-Boom and the wonderful Our Town make this the best Pixar soundtrack in my opinion, though the movie is just alright.
PS: how can Wall-E be at the bottom?

Definitely Newman's most forgettable soundtrack. Rascal Flatts' "Life is a Highway" is pretty good though.

This movie and soundtrack are incredibly underrated. I’ll save the movie rant for that list but Sh-Boom, Our Town, Route 66, and obviously Life Is a Highway? Cars should be much higher on this list.

Chuck Berry's Route 66 is just unforgettable

7 Toy Story 3

This theme is great, the part where Andy is driving off and the screen zooms in to Woody

Another fantastic soundtrack led by another Oscar-winning Randy Newman song.

8 Monsters, Inc.

Randy Newman hits another home run with this jazzy score.

We like for ever we watch it

9 Toy Story 2

The music in this is so powerful. I like the touching gentle music in Jessie's song, but I also like the grand score in the opening scene with Buzz flying.

Yet ANOTHER Newman soundtrack highlighted by the beautiful "When She Loved Me".

10 Ratatouille

The music in Ratatouille is so uplifting and beautiful and "Le Festin" by Camille is absolutely gorgeous, even if I don't speak French!

Just a beautiful arrangement that celebrates and embraces the movie's French environment.

Maybe the best soundtrack ever written. great French energy.

Another great soundtrack.

The Contenders


Marvelous score that gives you an ominous "space-future" vibe.

This should be higher

Define Dancing is phenominal in my opinion

There are no lyrical songs, but look at the scene ‘define dancing’, the soundtrack is incredible!

12 Monsters University

The music of Monsters University is great! I especially like the drum and college music.

I don't know any up, nemo, or inside out songs...
also, toy story is getting kinda overrated...

MU is just music to my ears... (literally and idiomly)

I love how Pixar really went all out with the college band music.

13 Cars 2

No, Cars 2 Doesn't Deserve To Be Last, I Like Soundtrack, even If I would hate the film, I like the music in it, and why is inside out at number 2? , It's a good movie for sure, but it doesn't have any music

Of course Cars 2 is the worst. Cars 2 is the worst in everything.

The score for both Cars movies weren't even that good.

HA!, Cars 2 Is Now 9, Excellent!

14 Coco

This film has great great music

This movie HAS to be on the list

15 A Bug's Life

I’d say no. 1... highly underrated.

What can I say? It's Randy Newman.

16 Finding Dory
17 Brave

The music for Brave is so beautiful and it is historically accurate. Most instruments used in the score were actually used in ancient Scotland.

This score is AMAZEING it mixes Scottish bagpipes and classical European instruments to make a truly enchanting tone that I still listen to today.

Even though Brave is definitely Pixar's most "meh" production, you got to admit that those bagpipes sound pretty awesome.

I love the Scottish soundtrack playing in the backround it makes me feel so... um... Scottish.

18 The Good Dinosaur

Inside out was a gem in the poop known as recent pixar I DID NOT like this

To be honest, I haven't seen this movie yet. How was it?

It was actually a pretty good film, it is on the weaker side of Pixar but it's not worse Cars 2

19 The Adventures of Andre & Wally B. The Adventures of Andre & Wally B. Product Image

The Flight of the Bumblebee

20 Incredibles 2
21 Cars 3 Cars 3 Product Image
22 Toy Story 4

It's a great movie
