I am currently working on a bigger article where all the songs are ranked. But here are my favorites from each movie. And some runner ups :) (I will include runner ups where the 2nd place could have a chance at beating the 1st place) So let's begin! Warning: You'll be hearing a lot of "love" here. Bonus warning: English isn't my first language. :)
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
I'm Wishing/One Song
Oh, how I love this song. I love the opening, lyrics, voices, melody, romance and the ahahahahah. I'm not laughing, I'm just trying to sing like Snow in my head. But my favorite part is when the prince starts to sing. He is so wonderful. I would have fallen in love with him if he had sung to me, too.
Sing Sweet Nightingale
Drizella isn't that bad, Anastasia is the one that really ruins it for her. Okay, she is terrible at the end of the song, but in her defense it is after Cindy has sung. At the beginning I don't want to cut off my ears. And then Cinderella comes. With that voice. It may be my favorite DP voice. It's perfect for her. Her voiceeeeeeeee. Imagine if Cindy sang every single song in the whole world. acjirbforjbeijbdhivchuviudiicdie her voice. I just love it.
Runner up: So this is love
CINDERELLA'S VOICE. HER VOICE. I CAN TASTE HER VOICE. Seriously she sounds like honey. The song is just a bit short. But So This Is Love can take the first place, easily. I think it is the runner up that is closest to steal first place. But Sing Sweet Nightingale is just so pretty. Whenever I listen to So This Is Love I want it to be my favorite, but then I listen to Sing Sweet Nightingale again, and it is just wonderful. And BTW Cindy just took 1st place at DP singing voices. I am obsessed with her voice.
Once Upon A Dream
I'm not really fond of any of the songs in Sleeping Beauty, but Once Upon A Dream is very dreamy. Hehehehehe of course it is. It's called Once Upon A DREAM. It's very romantic and all, I really like the song. I can't really say anything bad about it, it just won't make it into my favorite disney songs list.
The Little Mermaid
Part Of Your World
I prefer this to the reprise because I feel it shows more of Ariel's personality. I love this song, but I think it is a bit overrated. I mean it's really good, but the meaning of the song isn't all that. I love how Jodi Benson doesn't sound like a person in a studio, I really imagine Ariel singing the song. Sometimes the voice is a little weird, though. But all in all I just love this song.
Runner up: Poor Unfortunate Souls
Love love love this song. I actually really like Ariel's voice here. And the song fits Ursula really well. I really like how it develops from a calm and manipulative song and at the end Ursula just goes crazy. The song really shows just how evil she is. Like her laughter. It's just so good. For some reason I think of spiders when I listen this song. I just love Part Of Your World a tiny bit more.
Beauty and the Beast
The songs in BATB are good, but they're a little bland to me. There is no bad song in the whole movie, I just don't feel like there is no spectacular song either. But I really love Belle. It's a great introducing dong, it really feels like a musical. You get to know the townspeople, Gaston, LeFou and of course Belle. I love when everybody is singing and shouting about their everyday life, and it really feels like a realistic song. Like the song could have happened in real life. In 5 minutes or so we are introduced to Belle and Gaston and everyone's view of them. And the melody is there. For other BATB songs like Be Our Guest and Human Again I just feel like there is no melody. But this is in my opinion the best BATB song.
A Whole New World
I haven't always loved this song. I used to be so close-minded about disney songs, and when my favorite didn't make the top spot I just got so annoyed. So this song, being many people's favorite disney song, I just rolled my eyes to. But it's so fantastic. Really, I love all parts. I love the intro, so beautiful and romantic. I really love Lea Salonga's voice, though it's better in Reflection, IMO. I love the instrumentals, it really sounds like thery're on a magic carpet ride. And the part I love the most is the ending. An amazing song.
Runner up: Arabian Nights
Though A Whole New World is my favorite song from Aladdin, I think this is the better song of the two. That's because, like Belle, it works so well as an introducing song. The city of Agrabah is introduced, you get a glimpse of the arabian desert, the culture and the music blends in bits of arabian culture. I really want this to beat A Whole New World because it is so underrated. Like many of other songs from Aladdin, they get overshadowed by A Whole New World.
They are pretty much tied for me. I love every single song in Pocahontas. So ranking them all is so hard. I feel bad for the songs that don't get included.
Colors Of The Wind
I love everything about this song. There is not a bad thing to say. The meaning, lyrics, melody, instruments and visuals are just so beautiful. And Poca's voice! It's so powerful. I think she is the only one that can sing as powerful as the score is. I love how they mixed in native american things. For me this is easily one of Disneys best songs. A masterpiece!
Runner up: Just Around The Riverbend
This song is underrated, IMO. It's is fun and fast, the visuals are amazing and Pocahontas voice is just incredible. I especially love it at the ends when she has to choose a path. I get chills every time!
Runner up #2: If I never Knew You
I used to like Savages part 2 more then this song. I really wish that the version with Pocahontas and John Smith was on Spotify. Instead I have to listen to the pop version. It's not that it's bad, it's just that the other version is SO much better. It's filled with more emotion and heart. My favorite part is when Poca leaves and John Smith is left alone to be executed. Still, he has no regret for ever meeting her; he would rather die than not knowing her. And that's just heartbreaking.
Honorable mentions: Savages part 2 & 1
They are both so powerful. I just love the Pocahontas soundtrack to death. It's a shame that five songs kind of have to tie for because they all deserve the top spot.
I'll Make A Man Out Of You
One word. Awesome. And read it in Batman's voice. Awesome. That is how to describe I'll make a man out of you. It's just a kick-ass warrior song. You just want to sing and fight and join an army. I just get a wave of confidence when listening to this song. And Shang is shirtless so..
The Princess and the Frog
Friends On The Other Side
One of my favorite Disney villain songs along with Hellfire. It's exiting from the first second. It's fun, fast, dark, upbeat and just fantastic. The visuals are very creative and plays the voodoo-man card very well. I actually feel hypnotized when watching this video. In my opinion the best PATF song by far and to me a perfect villain song.
Honorable mention: Kingdom Dance
I looooove Kingdom Dance, I really wish it counted as a song.
When Will My Life Begin (reprise)
I don't think Tangled's songs are so good. They're just mehh.. to me. But this song really stands out. IMO, it's much better than the original. I really don't like the intro in When Will My Life Begin. Rapunzel's voice doesn't show, and the lyrics are bland. In the reprise, it's much more score, which I personally like, her voice sounds so fantastic and the lyrics are about her first experience outside of her prison, not her chores. I get chills every time I listen to this song, especially when she sings "finally feeling". I used to listen to this several times a day, now I adore it.
Brave needs more appreciation for its soundtrack, it's so stunning. I love every single song. Like with the Pocahontas soundtrack I'm going to mention two runner ups here because the songs are so fantastic.
Noble Maiden Fair
This is one of my favorite Disney songs ever. When I first heard the song I couldn't stop listening to it. It is just so beautiful, yet calm and not something epic. The intro is so perfect , it could be a song with just instrumentals. And then Emma Thompson begins to sing and it's so amazing. And Merida does sing, and it's lovely. I love gaelic and how it sounds. I love everything about this song!
Runner up: Into The Open Air
It's very hard to place all of Brave's songs, but this needs to get some more love. I feel that everyone likes Touch the sky because they don't listen to the other songs. It is very sweet and perfect for the moment it's played in the movie. The intro is very beautiful, not so much like the When Will My Life Begin intro.
Runner up #2: Touch The Sky
Ah, the intro. Again it's what I love the most about the song. It's very catchy and it makes me feel very happy and I just want to sing along. The part between the two verses is so beautiful. I want to put it higher, because it doesn't deserve to be at 3rd place. But what can I say. All the songs are fantastic.
For The First Time In Forever
I love Anna and Elsa's voices in this song, I also love the combination of the differences in the song. Like how Anna's parts are the cheery and funny ones and Elsa's are the more serious ones. It is just a wonderful song, it has everything!
Runner up: Love Is An Open Door
I love this song! Anna's voice is so beautiful and so is Hans'. A very sweet and romantic song. I guess the only thing I don't like is the intro. I think it's kinda annoying. I love how they are goofy and the song isn't quite as every other disney love song. The song really just makes me wish that they just stayed a couple.
Thank you for reading my article! Bye Bye :)
