Worst Disney Animated Film Songs

Come on, who doesn't love Disney? It's known for its great stories and wonderful music. However Disney does mess up sometimes, in both movies and songs. So I think it's time to count down the worst Disney animated film songs.

NOTE: This list is for the animated films, so please don't include songs from films like "High School Musical."

The Top Ten

1 Fixer Upper - Frozen

The Oscar winning film's most beloved song is obviously "Let it go" with other loved songs being "Do you wanna build a snowman? " "In summer" and "Love is an open door." While "We are cutting ice" and "Reindeer are better then people" are often forgotten. However one song I think most people can agree being the worst is "Fixer upper."

The trolls are in the film for a very short amount of time and still come out being annoying (except Grand-poppy, of course. ) Their song just shows how annoying they are by probably having the worst singing voices in the film and their song pointing all the wrong stuff with Kristoff, in a rather mocking-like way. But worst of all, when they figure out Anna is engaged THEY WANT HER TO HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH KRISTOFF. WHAT THE HECK!?! - ThatkidwiththeContacts

Even worse: they sing this pointless song while Anna is dying of the curse. The trolls' terrible decision to waste her time with this junk could've got her killed. - Treacle

Can someone please remind me what the point of this song is again? One of my friends once told me that it's there to say that Anna and Kristoff should be a couple. That would be fine... Except that it was obvious that that was the case even without this song.

Maybe it's so that the trolls could have a song, so that everyone in more than one scene could have a song? Alright, then, which song did the Duke of Weselton sing? Or the men he sent to help Hans? Or Marshmallow?

Seriously, the only thing this song does is waste time- Anna and Kristoff's time, considering one of them has their life endangered at that very moment, as well as the audience's time, seeing as how it's one of the weakest scenes of any Disney movie.

Yeah this song is really weird and when they find out Anna is engaged they don't respect her choice. Even if Hans is an evil villain they don't know that at the time

This person got her heart frozen and is about to die any minute. Let’s sing a song. - 3DG20

2 Let It Go - Frozen

I'm sick of hearing this on the radio. It's so overrated. There are so many nicer songs like 'do you want to build a snowman' and a few others. Why does this song get so much attention? I haven't watched frozen yet but this song is enough to drive anyone with semi decent music taste away!

=_= You haven't even watched Frozen yet. Nothing to see here, this is just another comment hating on a good song because it's "popular." How about instead of judging a song on it's popularity, try actually WATCHING the movie and judging the song on how good it is instead? Because, this is a list for the worst Disney songs, not the most popular. - EllaInTheRankings

It is actually very idiotic and disgusting song. It has been actually bribed for giving an academy award after giving all fake praises for this song along with its story. The critics have done really most idiotic job of giving enough of fake praises for this film as I and many others can say honestly that critics were actually dumb enough as they themselves couldn't judge and admit how irrelevant its plot and how annoying and nonsense this song is still in reality. It deserves to receive with extreme negative reviews in reality by critics which should be given still to film. This film along with this song deserves to get flopped up along with cancelling all its sequels.

WORST SONG EVER! I HAVE HEARD IT A MILLION TIMES ON T.V., NO SCRATCH THAT, EVERYWHERE! I HAVE seen the movie, I like the story behind it, but that song, is enough to keep me from watching it. I also am not judging by "popularity"like some say in the comments below, I am judging it by the song. Seriously, I don't get how people like it. Really Elsa, we get it, now be quiet!

3 Yodel-Adle-Eedle-Idle-Oo - Home On the Range

This song is horrible shoukd be higher how is let it go higher anyways - VideoGamefan5

Awful piece of entrainment - iliekpiez

4 Hakuna Matata - The Lion King

People want to call The Lion King the mature, adult movie of the Disney renaissance...and yet it's got a song about flatulence. Hakuna Matata is a stupid song that wouldn't sound complex to a 3 year old - AngyC

We all loved this song when we where little kids and when we rewatch the movie and come back to this song we say "Wow, this is a lot more annoying then I remembered." Though true, it will get stuck in your head for the rest of the day. - ThatkidwiththeContacts

This song always gets stuck in my head! - NerdyPweeps

My dad just got killed in a stampede. Let’s use this catchphrase and sing a song about it. That’ll make it all better. - 3DG20

5 Let's Sing a Gay Little Spring Song - Bambi

SPOILER ALERT: You all know that part of the film "Bambi" where his mom gets shoot and he gets out for her when that buck cold-heartedly tells her shes dead. Then you pause the film to cry into your pillow for 20 minutes then press play to find cute little birds flirting with each other while an annoying song playing and your like "WHATTHEHECK!?!? " Yeah... Nothing to make the moment worse then that annoying song... - ThatkidwiththeContacts

Is this the real title? it's been a while since I seen the movie, so? I hope not...

It IS the real title. Many people forget/don't know that the word "gay" used to mean "happy". So the title actually means "Let's Sing a Happy Little Spring Song".

At least the title is honest with us... - 3DG20

6 A Guy Like You - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Paris is burning, the villain is out-right murdering men women and children in the streets and the second lead character was just shot and fell into the river. What should we do? Have three of the worst characters ever sing a undercooked song about how being ugly is better than being normal, with visuals of poker games and bells spliced in. Ill remind you: Hundreds of people are being murdered off screen as this song is sung, and one of the main characters is, for all we know, dead. Timing wasnt this songs strong-suit.

The statutes, nobody likes them. Why? They're annoying and they sang this piece of trash. It's idiotic lyrics, bad vocals and unlikable production make it one of the worst - ThatkidwiththeContacts

So being shaped like a croissant guarantees you a girlfriend? Okay good to know.

7 What Made the Red Man Red? - Peter Pan

When I saw this song for the first time, I because I felt so awkward watching something kinda racist. I think Disney image for a Indian tribe went to far and ended up giving us a cringe worthy song with a cringe worthy music video. - ThatkidwiththeContacts

I love Peter Pan more than I can tell but this was pretty bad. - Disneylover

With a bunch of Indians happen around. It just seems like badly trained clowns. Have gone terribly insane.

Nowadays this song would not be acceptable

8 The Morning Report - The Lion King

All the lion songs are good except this one

Yep..."The lion king" has another bad song. Look, Simba is brat and just gloates and whined while he was a cub and this song shows him at his worst. Being so mean to that bird just because he was doing his job. Look Simba, you can't sing, you are not very nice and your not as cute as others say you R. I'm just glad you eventually grew up! - ThatkidwiththeContacts

I like the song and its enjoyable roo hear

Really annoying special addition song wish it was never even in there although I do love the movie and it’s sequels

More like let your Voice go

It's true though.

10 (You Ain't) Home On the Range - Home On the Range

The Contenders

11 We Are Siamese - Lady and the Tramp

This song was so annoying! The cats actually scared me when I was little!

It makes me cringe every time I listen to it. Least favorite song by far.

Their voices and the ticking clock in the background are so annoying. - Treacle

12 Love is an Open Door - Frozen

Honestly, when I watched frozen for the first time (though I have only watched it once), this song felt like a parody of modern high school romantic comedies. The fact that it was in a disney movie just made it feel really out of place and painfully to listen to, and I almost turned of the rest of the movie because of it. Plus it made me hate the main character (the teenage girl) for the rest of the movie.

I hate this song! Basically all you hear are two people singing "Love is an open DOOR! " Over and over and over! Worst song ever! I shut it off the first time I heard it

This song sucks and I HATE it big time!

13 For the First Time in Forever - Frozen

This song seems rushed and out of context.

This list is just Frozen hate - TailsTheFox

The music is nice but the lyrics are AWFUL. - SplashMoun10

Bad... BAD lyrics!

14 Try Everything - Shakira

The Most Unoriginal And Annoying Disney Song Of All Time, At Least Let It Go Had Meaning, This? , NaH, This Crap Ain't Real, It's Just A Piece Of Bull - VideoGamefan5

MAKE IT STOP Indeed, Disney at its worst spells Shakira at her worst,

I Hate This Song So Much, Not Joking - VideoGamefan5

This song is just Shakira’s rather awful attempt to bring herself back into existence. - 3DG20

15 I've Got a Dream - Tangled

I do agree that it's weird having barbarians sing a song about dreams, but that's probably the point. I personally believe that the aim of this song and this sequence in the movie was to tell the audience not to judge people at first sight, because everyone has their own dreams and aspirations regardless of how "bad" they seem.

There's something weird about barbarians singing a song about dreams

Forget about Let It Go. THIS is the most overrated Disney song.

Love it

16 Do You Want to Build a Snowman? - Kristen Bell, Agatha Lee Monn & Katie Lopez

No - Pieclone

WAS this trash serosuly no on the list? its worse than Let it Go - christangrant

17 Shiny - Moana

I loved the soundtrack of this movie, for the most part, but this song just felt out of place compared to the other songs. Plus the premise was stupid to be honest. I mean, It's a song about how he likes shiny things, basically.

I think they put a lot of effort into this song. It was kinda out of theme, but it was okay at least. But this was better than your welcome. Really. I don't really like that song. - TheGoldenRifle

I agree. Every song was so meaningful and got stuck in your head except this song. It didn't fit in and had a poor background. I wish they had cut this song and put in something different in.

This song is great! Best villain song I have ever heard! The song itself is amazing. The background music = pure genuis! The words= even more genuis than the background music! You have no taste in music.

18 Forget About Love - The Return of Jafar

It has Gilbert Gottfried singing. Need I say more?


19 Mine Mine Mine - Pocahontas

What the hell? Why is this song on the list?

This mailbox is mine.
And this triagonal sign.
That blue balloon, the month of June,
They're mine mine mine mine mine,

20 Can You Feel the Love Tonight? - The Lion King

Yeah, I'm with this one. The lyrics are great, the melody is great. But what I just can't stand is the singing and instrumentals. My gosh, they're so overly-mushy! Thankfully this song was redone for Broadway, and it was done far better, but in terms of the original film... I can feel the hatred tonight.

I could never hate Elton John. This bash goes to the original singers of the song. Yes while the lion king does have good songs "Be prepared" & "Circle of life" it also has stinkers "Can you feel the love tonight? " "Can't wait to be king" & "Morning report." And as I just said "Can you feel the love tonight? " is one of those stinkers. It's just so boring with weak production and lyrics that make me wanna rip my ear-drums out with a spork. So this song definitely finds a way in this list. - ThatkidwiththeContacts

(I don't mean to attack you. I am just defending this song.) Stinkers? STINKERS?! I give up on humanity. This is amazing. It has that magical feeling to it that makes Disney special. It gives me the most wonderful butterflies listening to it. - Disneylover

I believe Can you feel the love tonight should go in top ten best. It's a classic.

Can you feel the love tonight?

This is my least favorite Disney song besides hell fire

Your father's dead, Simba! YAY! What is this not what you wanted, I mean you just sang a annoying, too catchy, coacky song about it! - ThatkidwiththeContacts

A song that Simba sings that’s basically about how he can’t wait until his dad dies so he can be the new king is somehow considered one of the best songs in the movie. - 3DG20

30 Mary Ann! / A Lizard With a Ladder / We'll Smoke the Blighter Out - Alice In Wonderland
31 Human Again - Beauty and the Beast


32 Mad Madam Mim - The Sword In the Stone

I've always found this stupid song annoying. I always mute it out and pretend it never happened.

I’ve always found Madam Mim annoying and I wish she was dropped from The Sword - in the Stone because her character makes the movie 🍿 worse

33 When Will My Life Begin - Tangled

I love this song

18 years ago. - 3DG20

34 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Why the hell Is this here

35 So This Is Love - Cinderella

All together this song is... Okay. It has nice vocals but the song just comes off being to slow and quote on quote "romantic" that it just ends up being TOO slow and kinda boring. - ThatkidwiththeContacts

36 The Unbirthday Song - Alice In Wonderland
37 Painting the Roses Red - Alice In Wonderland
38 Be Prepared - The Lion King

43 Under the Sea - The Little Mermaid
44 Very Good Advice - Alice In Wonderland
45 I'll Make a Man Out of You - Mulan

I am so sick of this song, it was annoying with all the parodies and YouTube videos and being sung anywhere and everywhere by anyone before the world heard a note of "Let It Go". And it's sexist and demeaning, not inspiring.

I love this song, My favorite Disney song and it's so motivating!

This song is super cool and my favorite Disney song!

Bad memories
