For today’s post, I have decided to do a countdown of my favorite Disney songs. I have narrowed it down to only songs from animated feature films. Of course, all but one of these have been made (or is being made) into live-action versions, but I chose the version from the animated film here! To be honest, they are all Disney Princess films, so maybe that is the thread. Anyway, here is my countdown!
Number 5: Beauty and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast
~The titular song of Beauty and the Beast ranks in at number five. It is such an adorable song, and it always makes my heart melt a little.
Number 4: A Whole New World from Aladdin
~As a child who grew up in the 90s, I have a major soft spot for Aladdin. This duet is a really fun one, and it is super magical and catchy. Aladdin and Jasmine singing while flying through the air on a magic carpet has got to be one of the best scenes in the entire film!
Number 3: Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid
~I adore mermaids, and The Little Mermaid is such a great movie. Ariel is sassy and rebellious, and this song is in many ways her anthem of rebellion. I know I could have chosen other songs from this film, but I personally believe that this one has got to be the most fun to belt out!
Number 2: Now I See the Light from Tangled
~This duet from Tangled ranks as the most modern of all the songs on this list. I love the relationship between Flynn and Rapunzel, and I think this song shows that off well! While other songs from the film are also great, this one plucks at the strings of my hopelessly romantic heart.
Number 1: Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty
~My favorite Disney song of all time is from the film based on my favorite fairytale. My regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty and this song is very special. It is literally lyrics put to Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Waltz. I love that they chose to use the music from the ballet for this film!
~I hope that you have enjoyed my countdown. Did I include your favorite Disney song? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
