The Top Disney songs over the last 3 decades - GODYEARS

The Top Disney songs over the last 3 decades

June 23, 2017

This year's #Barathon (Blog Marathon) by Blog-A-Rhythm is themed around 'Seven' so I figured I would make lists of seven (or multiples of it) for the challenges. For today's list, I chose to go with the Best Disney Songs of All Time.

With 80 years and nearly 60 animated films, Walt Disney has a legacy that simply cannot be matched in any era when it comes to animated movies and cinematic studios. The sheer variety and scope of these movies have made us smile and given us hope in so many different forms, as we found love and life lessons in everything they gave us, be it a mermaid, a mouse, a Princess or even a lion cub.
The music and songs in these movies have included some which were not just Oscar winners but have stood the test of time across generations as well.

It is tough to sheer a list comprising hundreds of songs down to 7 (or in this case, even 14) so I am cutting the duration down to the last 3 decades of songs (1987 - 2017).



A Whole New World - Aladdin



* Also check out the peppy Prince Ali and Friend Like Me.


Can You Feel the Love Tonight - The Lion King.



Circle of Life - The Lion King


Honestly, The Lion King as an album is pure magic. So many hits that deserve to be in this list including the iconic Hakuna Matata and I just can't wait to be King

Go the Distance - Hercules



You'll be in my Heart - Tarzan



Son of Man - Tarzan


If there is competition for Elton John and 'The Lion King' for best Disney music album, it is undoubtedly from Phil Collins and the soundtrack of 'Tarzan'. Check out the amazing Two Worlds and Strangers Like Me.

You've got a Friend in Me - Toy Story



Beauty and the Beast - Beauty and the Beast



Almost There - The Princess and the Frog



Colours of the Wind - Pocahontas



Kiss the Girl - The Little Mermaid



Let it go - Frozen



Try Everything - Zootopia



How Far I'll Go - Moana



Hope you had fun and found some new gems today. Which are your all-time favourite Disney songs?

  1. Such wonderfully melodious and meaningful songs. Some of them - like Let it Go and Circle of Life - I've heard on a loop. But I'd forgotten some of the others. Going to make a complete playlist out of these.

  5. I haven't seen so many of them but yes the ending of mist... That's just... I don't even have a word to describe that feeling. Prestige is an awesome movie, haven't read the book though. I want to watch silence of the lambs but well, maybe I need more guts.

  10. Love this post! I am a Disney animation nut. I even worked at an animation studio here in Ottawa long ago in 1988 painting cartoon cells and that's how I met my husband. Those days are gone now in these digital times when they get studios in places like Korea to colour the cells. What fun it was working there with everyone all starry eyed thinking we were like Disney North. The reality was that we could barely survive on the measly pay we got.
    Such wonderful tunes. I could spend all morning clicking on every link to listen to these great songs. When my boys were young, I would buy all kinds of Disney faves on VHS and DVD. For the boys, of course! *wink*
    My oldest son is funny how he picked up some LP records at a thrift store and he was listening to music from Cinderella. Now that's an oldie but goodie. Love those old movies, too and the music is brilliant, of course in ones like Dumbo, Bambi, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Disney always got the best composers and musicians for his movies and the tradition continues.

    Thanks for such a fun post, Roshan! My favourite movie is Beauty and the Beast and I love the music. I also enjoyed the recent live action version, too.

    Sorry to be so yappy but as you can see, I love Disney animated films!

    1. Glad to hear this... and yes, those were the glory days of animation painting each frame meticulously and creating magic onscreen.

    1. Bare necessities missed out because Jungle Book was over 40 years old - or else would definitely have made this list
