My favourite Disney songs

Hello! I’m back with another Disney related post for you today! I’m soooo enjoying writing about Disney again, it’s totally ignited my love for it again and I’ve had Disney songs on repeat over the last few months. Of course, I have plenty of Disney soundtracks on my iTunes so this is the perfect time to talk about my favourite Disney songs. Of course I won’t be able to mention every single one and I’m by no means putting these in order (that’s just cruel and impossible!) but here are some of my favourite ever Disney songs!

Evermore – Beauty and the Beast

Obviously one of the newer songs of the bunch but Evermore really, really, really grabbed me by the heart and hasn’t let go. I absolutely love the fact that they gave the Beast his own song in the new film, I think it was a really good move and the song itself is absolutely stunning.

Two Worlds – Tarzan

Tarzan has always been one of my favourite Disney films, I think it’s so fun, well made and I love the characters (especially Terk) and it’s certainly got one of the best overall soundtracks of all the Disney films. It was tough narrowing it down but I think Two Worlds is my favourite!

Kiss the Girl – The Little Mermaid

This isn’t usually the kind of song I’d really super duper enjoy but Kiss the Girl is such a cute and fun song! I absolutely love the scene in The Little Mermaid when this song is playing as well. Also, if you’re not aware of Jonathan Young on YouTube who does rock covers of Disney songs… His cover of this is fantastic!

Prince Ali – Aladdin

There’s no way this one wasn’t going to be on here. I went through a phase where I just wanted to listen to this all the freaking time. I burnt it onto disks to play in the car and seriously think my boyfriend started to get a bit worried. It’s just such a good freaking song, okay?!

Eye to Eye / Stand Out / After Today – The Goofy Movie

Sorry, I literally couldn’t pick just one for this one! The Goofy Movie is one of my favourite Disney movies and I think it’s so underrated as well! The songs are bloody brilliant and so damn catchy.

I Just Can’t Wait to Be King – The Lion King

Despite the fact that I’ve only seen The Lion King 3 times in my 25 years because I literally cannot watch it without breaking down into tears (like, seriously, it’s a joke now), I Just Can’t Wait to Be King has always been one of my firm favourite Disney songs!

Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride – Lilo and Stitch

This song just makes me so damn happy. I don’t know how anyone can listen to this song and not naturally start bopping along. It’s such a cute, fun and uplifting song and I think Lilo and Stitch is another fairly underrated Disney movie!

God Help the Outcasts / Topsy Turvy – The Hunchback of Notré Dame

Again, another Disney film that I don’t think gets near enough praise or recognition! This film holds a special place in my heart because it was featured heavily in the parade at Disneyland Paris when my parents took me when I was 5. Although I obviously don’t remember it, there’s plenty of footage on an old video recorder. I had to feature two songs on here. God Help the Outcasts is a really beautiful song and Topsy Turvy reminds me of my mum and is super fun!

  1. Great list, Jenny! I love Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride too, and Trashing the Camp from Tarzan (but yes, that entire soundtrack is glorious). And Be Our Guest and Gaston’s Song from both versions. And Kiss the Girl. I honestly have so many Disney songs on my Happy playlist. They bring me joy. 💛

  2. Great post Jenny! Some of my favourites are

    “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana
    “Let It Go” from Frozen
    ” Be Our Guest” from Beauty & The Beast
    “Circle of Life” from the Lion King
    “Colours of the Wind” from Pocahontas
    “Zero to Hero” from Hercules
    “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” from Lilo and Stitch
    “Gaston” from Beauty and The Beast
    “Prince Ali” from Aladdin
    “Friend Like Me” From Aladdin

    I am off to listen to some Disney songs now… 🙂

  3. You’re going to gasp, but I’ve never heard any of these Disney songs. I might have done when I was younger and may remember when I listen to them again, but I certainly don’t recall any of them.

  4. My favorite Disney songs are “I See The Light” from Tangled and “So Close” from Enchanted 😊 also, the Aulani hotel in O‘ahu had released a CD of some Disney songs in Hawaiian. You should definitely YouTube it or look it up on iTunes!

  5. The only song I recognise on here is the one from The Lion King but I love that one – in fact I love all The Lion King songs. Flora has the DVD and her school did a LK medley for their summer show last year so we’re quite familiar with singalongs now!

  6. Evermore has to be one of my favourites from the new film. I would have loved for them to have used If I Can’t Love Her (Beast’s song from the Broadway soundtrack) but I think Evermore works well and gives Beast the depth needed in order to capture his inner torment.

    Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride, God Help the Outcasts and Two Worlds are other favourites of mine as well. From Hunchback of Notre Dame, I also love the little song Heaven’s Light which always seems to get overlooked because it is only a few lines long and comes just before Hellfire which is such an emotive and powerful song in itself.

    Other favourites also include:
    – I See the Light (Tangled)
    – When You Wish Upon A Star (Pinocchio)
    – Go The Distance (Hercules)
    – So Close, and That’s How You Know (Enchanted)
    – Candle on the Water (Pete’s Dragon)
    – Substitutiary Locomotion (Bedknobs and Broomsticks)

      • I love all the songs in Bedknobs as the wordplay from the Sherman Brothers is brilliant! I was the same with Evermore too. As soon as I heard it and the new tracks, I just loved them. I’m really glad Alan Menken came back to write them because they wouldn’t have been the same otherwise.

  7. Omg I shouldn’t have read this. Now all of these songs are going to be stuck in my head all day! The songs from The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast are my favs.

  8. I totally agree on “Kiss the Girl” and “Evermore”… I love all the songs from the 1991 “Beauty and the Beast”, I had such a great time singing along while watching the 2017 version 🙂

  9. Ooh we only have one in common! (I Just Can’t Wait to Be King). I really like Kiss the Girl too, but prefer Under the Sea. I love the music in Frozen a lot, as well as Lion King, Tangled and the Little Mermaid.

  10. “Under the Sea” from Little Mermaid. I don’t know why. It just always used to make me and my friends laugh and has a lot of good memories. Got to love “I See the Light” from Tangled, too!

  11. Ah I love this! I adore the whole Tarzan soundtrack! It’s Dreamworks rather than Disney, but the Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron has an INCREDIBLE soundtrack, I adore it! I think you’ve touched upon most of my faves here though 🙂

  12. I love how you have a collection of Disney movies! Also like that you didn’t choose the current mainstream faves (Let it go). I haven’t heard most of these but love the vibes of Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride! 🙂

  13. I think the reason I loved Disney films so much as a kid was because of the songs. All the emotions just jumped out at me. Reflections in Mulan, circle of life in lion king and all the songs in Tarzan make me cry!

  14. I love the fact there are more unusual choices in here! I love Hunchback of Notre Dame too – totally underrated movie as it is beautifully animated and the story line is so gripping. Kiss The Girl is one of my faves too, it’s so pretty! x x x

  15. I don’t think you can beat the Tarzan soundtrack. I mean, it’s perfection. I listen to it all the time.

    I think that I See The Light from Tangled, Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid and Colours Of The Wind from Pocahontas are definitely up there with the best too.

  16. Great list, Jenny! I haven’t heard some of these songs. The Hunchback is currently on my watch list so I’ll have to do that soon! I love Evermore but I do prefer the animated Beauty and The Beast over the new one and Aladdin and Little Mermaid are two of my faves x

      • I like both versions, I think I’m just not that keen on Emma Watson as Belle, I love her but I wish they had a proper singer/actress instead of an actress that can sing a bit. I do love Luke Evans and Josh Gad though!

  17. As a huge Disney fan I loved reading through your favourites, I love two worlds from Tarzan two, and the evermore song from beauty and the beast. So hard to pick a few favourites but mine are probably I’ve got a dream from tangled, Step in time from Mary poppins, and all the songs from Brother bear and Tarzan, haha!

  18. Fab list Jenny! I kept singing along to these in my head as I was reading them. Though I have such a soft spot for The Hunchback of Notre Dame and God Help the Outcasts. It’s a great film with excellent song choices.

  19. I love your Disney posts, and this had me opening iTunes and putting on a Disney album – so thank you haha! My favourites are I’ll Make a Man Out of You from Mulan, and pretty much all of Hercules (but especially Go The Distance and Won’t Say I’m In Love). Although it’s so hard to pick cause Disney knock it out the park on every film!

  20. Loving this post! its a great idea to post because sometimes we forget classic songs and its interesting to learn new ones from other people! You have def inspired me #LetsGetDownToBusiness

  21. Evermore is one of my new favs!! I absolutely LOVE that song. I Wont Say I’m In Love is another good one. I feel like a lot of people can relate to it lol
