Disney Songs That Deserve More Love & Attention
Some favorites you might not have realized are actual favorites
Music is a big part of any Disney production, whether that’s a full-fledged movie, a series or a short. The songs and melodies help evoke feelings and stir memories and leave us singing along years after we hear them for the first time.
There are some big numbers in Disney’s decades-long library (think Go The Distance, Reflection and Hakuna Matata), but there are other songs that deserve just as much love and attention. Need a refresher? We thought you’d never ask.
A Goofy Movie
Because we all need a feel-good love song.
So don't be in a hurry
Think before you count us out
You don't have to worry
I won't ever let you drown
Cruella De Vil
Because Cruella De Vil is iconic and this song should be, too.
Cruella De Vil
Cruella De Vil
If she doesn't scare you
No evil thing will
How Does A Moment Last Forever
Beauty & The Beast (2017)
Because this addition to the classic soundtrack of Beauty & The Beast is something we never knew it needed.
Minutes turn to hours
Days to years then gone
But when all else has been forgotten
Still our song lives on
Touch The Sky
Because there’s something so empowering about this song.
I will read every story
Take hold of my own dream
Be as strong as the seas are stormy
And proud as an eagle's scream
Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat
Because who didn’t want to learn how to play the trumpet after seeing this dance number?
Everybody wants to be a cat
Because a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at
The Bells Of Notre Dame
Hunchback of Notre Dame
Because the song is equal parts sinister and truth.
But a trap had been laid for the gypsies
And they gazed up in fear and alarm
At a figure whose clutches
Were iron as much as the bells
When She Loved Me
Toy Story 2
Because this one always hits you right in the heart.
So the years went by
I stayed the same
But she began to drift away
I was left alone
Poor Unfortunate Souls
The Little Mermaid
Because nothing scares us to the bone quite like Ursula.
I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a witch
But you'll find that nowadays
I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch
Into The Woods
Because there's unexpected humor in this little number.
Agony, beyond power of speech
When the one thing you want
Is the only thing out of your reach
Because it’s a crime to sing this and not dance along.
Wherever I wander, whenever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
Because this may be a short, but the instrumentals are so on point.
Arabian nights, like Arabian days
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways
