Most Underrated Disney Songs

The best Disney songs that not many people have heard! Or that people have forgotten. So, I don't mean "Colors of the Wind" or "A Whole New World," even though I love those songs. No "Let it Go" either, although I like it too. Usually, you can check if it's underrated/not known well by its views on YouTube.

The Top Ten

1 Once Upon a Time in New York City - Oliver & Company
2 I Won't Say I'm in Love - Hercules

I love this song. Hercules, in my opinion, has one of the best soundtracks of all Disney movies, alongside The Little Mermaid. Great song. Overall, very underrated.

It's really easy to find good covers of most Disney songs but this one is really hard to find as it is not so popular. Yet it is my favourite all time Disney song.

This Disney song is so catchy but it's so underrated. I love this song!

I love this song, I listen to it all the time!

3 Bells of Notre Dame - Hunchback of Notre Dame

This song is so good. I love the vibes I get from this song.

Love when the guy goes high at the very end of the movie. He hits the note perfectly. - fullymetal

Who is the monster and who is the man, sing the bells, bells, bells, bells, BELLS OF NOTRE DAME! - silenthill

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

At fan conventions, you can't go two hours without hearing this somewhere either from people's music players or people singing it loudly en masse. Nearly 99.999% of the world claims this is the greatest Disney song ever.

Tell me again how this song is "underrated".

Why is this number 1? People were singing this all over the place and still are; it's actually more annoying that "Let It Go".

"Did they send me daughters when I asked for sons" makes this a very sexist song and really challenges the whole idea of "Mulan" being such a great feminist movie. Not a good thing.

THIS song, underrated? Uh-huh, and the Beatles were some obscure band that sadly never hit it big.

5 One Jump Ahead - Aladdin

Everyone knows "Friend Like Me" and "A Whole New World," but the beginning song is always forgotten. I think this song is pretty funny. - fullymetal

Fun song, truly underrated

6 Belle - Beauty and the Beast

It's always low on top 10 lists and princess' song videos. I think it's a really good song, and I'm a guy. Everyone remembers "Be Our Guest" and "Beauty and the Beast" but not this. - fullymetal

This is a great song, especially the reprise

My favourite Disney song

7 God Help the Outcasts - Hunchback of Notre Dame

This song is so pure

Love this song!

Everybody vote for this

8 If Only - Descendants
9 I'm Still Here - Treasure Planet

This is an absolutely amazing song.

10 Goodbye May Seem Forever - The Fox and the Hound

The Contenders

11 Love is a Song - Bambi
12 Hellfire - Hunchback of Notre Dame

This song is powerful. The only reason I put it so low on the list is because I can't tell if its underrated. The people that know it love it. But there are many people who haven't watched Hunchback of Notre Dame. - fullymetal

Really? This? Underrated? Are you joking? This is considered by many to be Disney's best villain song, and among Disney's best songs overall to some.

Fantastic animation and voice work. Deserves higher placement. Probably down this low because the sample music given is incorrect.

This song is so bad, why do you think its underrated?! The tune is horrible, the singer doesn't sing, he growls, and the animation isn't good either. Not to mention the ghastly lyrics. Ugh.

13 What a Girl Is - Liv and Maddie
14 My Destiny - Liv and Maddie: Cali Style
15 When Can I See You Again - Wrec-It Ralph

This song needs more attention, it's cute.

16 Everybody's Got a Laughing Place - Song of the South

Love this song!

17 Count Me In - Liv and Maddie
18 We Are One - Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

A lot of other disney fans don't like the sequels, but I think Lion King 2 actually wasn't bad. The soundtrack is pretty good, but no one's heard of this or "My Lullaby." - fullymetal

19 Why Should I Worry? - Oliver & Company
20 Tomorrow is Another Day - The Rescuers Down Under

As was already said, this song is from the original "The Rescuers" not "Down Under". And it also is incredibly beautiful both in English and my native language (Brazilian Portuguese).

This was actually from the original, not "Down Under"

21 Strange Things - Toy Story

Great song - kaisietoo

Yes, everyone knows "When She Loved Me" and of course "You've Got a Friend In Me" but forgets all the others including this one.

Remember the movie...Love the movie...Love Randy

22 The Ballad of Pecos Bill - Melody Time
23 Better In Stereo - Liv and Maddie
24 My Lullaby - Lion King 2: Simba's Pride

Similar to "Be Prepared." (We'll be prepared! For what? For the death of a king!... :D) - fullymetal


25 Prince Ali - Aladdin


26 Little Wonders - Meet the Robinsons

An amazing and powerful song that I love listening to but it is a shame most people have no idea what I am singing when I do even people who have watched the movie sometimes don't recognize the song

27 Honor to Us All - Mulan

I don't think anybody really likes this song. They just love "Mulan" that much and put every song from it on this list.

I actually think this is the best song in a really good movie with a second tier batch of songs. Its style is most indicative of its cultural context and it has the most layered and interesting arrangement of any song on the soundtrack.

28 Almost There - The Princess and the Frog

I feel like a lot of Princess and the Frog songs are underrated. This song is just such a bop and a half! The rest of the soundtrack is really good too!

29 Grim Grinning Ghosts - Disney's the Haunted Mansion Ride

'I own about five different versions of this song, that's how catchy it is'

30 Topsy Turvy - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Best song of the movie after Out There

31 Everybody Wants to Be a Cat - The Aristocats

Underrated song from an underrated movie and one of my favorites. Second to Scales and Arpeggios. - BeanBag343

32 Wreck It, Wreck-It Ralph - Wreck-It Ralph
33 Baby Mine - Dumbo

Such a beautiful song, makes me cry every time

34 Sugar Rush - Wreck-It Ralph


It's a great mix between pop and rock, and the churus is so catchy, it'll be stuck in your head for days! 10/10

35 Rescue Aid Society - The Rescuers
36 Not One of Us - The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
37 A Girl Worth Fighting For - Mulan

One of two incedibly sexist songs in what everyone worships as Disney's most feminist movie, the other being the also not-underrated (quite OVERRATED actually) "I'll Make a Man Out of You"

38 Out of Thin Air - Aladdin and the King of Thieves

No one remembers this song, but I think it's awesome. - fullymetal

39 Oogie Boogie's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas
40 Love - Robin Hood
41 Good Doggie No Bone - The Fox and the Hound II
42 The Headless Horseman Song - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

It is such a good song yet no one knows about it

It is from the adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad which isn't a very well known film but definitely listen to this it is so good

Check out the version recorded by Thurl Ravenscroft which is far superior to the one by Bing Crosby used in the movie.

43 Someone's Waiting for You - The Rescuers
44 Fixer Upper - Frozen

Worst song in the movie. It deserves its rating right where it is.

45 He Mele No Lilo - Lilo and Stitch

It's so underrated people don't even know it's a real Disney song so beautiful.

46 Step In Time - Mary Poppins
47 No Way Out - Brother Bear

Such an emotional song, anything by Phil Collins is a winner

This song is so good - LionLink

48 Out There - The Hunchback of Notre Dame
49 Trashin the Camp - Tarzan
50 Best of Friends - The Fox and the Hound

Best song ever it makes me cry
