It’s time now to bring the longest of the lists to a close as I unveil the top 10 songs in Disney history:
10. The Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book)
This song that Baloo sings as he and Mowgli become friends is still one of the most fun, catchy, and memorable songs in history.
9. Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid)
This song that Ariel sings as she dreams of being part of the human is a tremendous song that is still one of the best and a great showcase for Jodi Benson.
8. Hakuna Matata (The Lion King)
This song that Timon and Pumbaa sing as they become friends with Simba is one of the most catchy, fun, and legendary songs in history.
7. When You Wish Upon a Star (Pinocchio)
This song that Jiminy Cricket sings to open the film is still one of the most memorable in history and remains one of the trademark songs associated with Disney.
6. Under the Sea (The Little Mermaid)
This song that Sebastian sings to convince Ariel to stay in the sea is a fantastic song and one of the greatest numbers in Disney history.
5. I Just Can’t Wait to be King (The Lion King)
This song that Simba and Nala sing to escape from Zazu is a tremendous and fun song as it is arguably one of the trademark songs of the Disney Renaissance.
4. Let It Go (Frozen)
This song that Elsa sings as she leaves all her fears behind is one of the most powerful songs in Disney history and possibly the greatest song from the last decade.
3. Beauty and the Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
This song that Mrs. Potts sings as Belle and Beast start to fall in love is still one of the greatest ballads in not just Disney history, but in cinema history as well.
2. A Whole New World (Aladdin)
This song that Aladdin and Jasmine sing as they travel across the world and fall is love is still quite possibly the greatest love ballad in Disney history.
And now, the Number One Song in Disney history:
- Be Our Guest (Beauty and the Beast)
This song sung by Lumiere and the castle residents as they serve Belle a feast is without a doubt one of the greatest musical sequences in history and easily the greatest song in Disney history.
That finally concludes this list and next week, I kick off the final list which is ranking all the films themselves.
