TOP 5 BEST DISNEY SONG

"PART OF YOUR WORLD"
(LITTLE MERMAID)

In the fifteen years since its release, The Little Mermaid has been given much credit as restoring Disney animation to a level of greatness it hadn't reached in years. The quality of the film, which embracing audiences made a popular success, sparked a resurgance that would inspire three other transcendant films before five years had passed. "Part of Your World" inspired other songs in which female protagonists hope for more, but this first song manages to be more poignant and uplifting than any of those which would follow.
"This is one of the first Disney songs that I can remember as a kid. In this sequence, one can see the true yearning that Ariel has for the human world. It is really a great piece of music that has a great animated sequence.






TOP 4 BEST DSNEY SONG
"WHEN YOU WSH UPON A STAR"
(PINOCCHIO)



The classic opening number to Pinocchio earned Disney their first Best Song Oscar.
For many, this is a pinnacle of the best Disney music, a song
which embodies the studio's ideal of dreams coming true. The song's sweet message paints Pinocchio with a most appealing brush, and speaks to the hopes and desires of all.
"This is the quintessential Disney song. It's got everything: sappy lyrics, lush orchestration, and warm fuzziness."


TOP 3 BEST DISNEY SONG
"CIRCLE OF LIFE"
(LION KING)


The power of The Lion King's opening makes it stand out among Disney's animation as a whole. A perfect blend of music and artwork, the "Circle of Life" sets the film's tone flawlessly. It was so effective an opening that Disney used it in its entirety to initially promote the film. But, as Jack Seiley points out, "While the song is most remembered for the knockout prologue it is paired with, the music itself is spectacular on its own." Without this song, the scene just isn't as potent. In the years since The Lion King, other Disney films have tried to duplicate this kind of awe-inspiring opening, but never as well. The "Circle of Life" sequence stands out not just as a high point in Disney animation, but as one of the strongest openings ever recorded, in film at large.



TOP 2 BEST DISNEY SONG
"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST"
(
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST)

The ballroom dance scene is one of the highlights of Beauty and the Beast. In a movie noted for drama and romance that is not dumbed down for young audiences, the scene establishes Belle and Beast as lovers. There's a vintage feel to the song, which is performed by Angela Lansbury's character (the teapot Mrs. Potts) with surprising effectiveness. Compared to other title songs, "Beauty and the Beast" is brimming with life and originality, and it makes the perfect companion to the captivating on-screen animation.


THE BEST DISNEY SONG
"A WHOLE NEW WORLD"
(ALADDIN)




Voters agreed that this magic carpet ride song was quite magical! One of a number of popular Disney songs to come out of the resurgent '90s, "A Whole New World" can be viewed as somewhat of an anthem to the new Disney. What distinguishes this from love songs and other Disney ballads that cover the hope and exhilaration of true love? It just may be an intangible quality of magic that seems to cast its spell over Aladdin and Jasmine's happy wonder-filled moment together.
"Quite simply one of my favorite songs of all time. I especially like how it's not just the typical love song, but also speaks to the movie's theme of the need for freedom in life- freedom to experience new things and freedom to be yourself. "
