So this is my 100th post and I wanted something different and good, but still to do with music. Then I realised Disney. Everyone loves Disney (especially me) so here are MY top 20 Disney songs (not including Pixar) and don’t expect the disney love songs in this post. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME DISNEY SONGS WILL BE ON HERE!
So let’s go.
20.Pete’s Dragon (1977) – Happiest Home In These Hills
I find this song more funny than amazing, but I like it. They sign how nice they will be and then what they really will do. And some of things they are going to do to Pete (or as the woman she says Petey) are horrendous but hilarious.
19.Pete’s Dragon (1997) – Boo Bop BopBop bop (I love You Too)
The second song from Pete’s Dragon in the list (and the last). It’s a nice kind loving song about friendship. And it has a dragon singing in it. Well a dragon that clicks and bops is still cool.
18.Robin Hood (1973) – The Phoney King Of England
The song that takes the fun out of Prince John, is a nice and fun song to listen and watch. Plus watching an American bear and a Scottish chicken dance is worth watching.
17.The Aristocats (1970) – Thomas O’Malley
What a legend! Even if he is a cat, he’s a player. It’s a nice song with a great trumpet part.
16.Bedknobs & Broomsticks (1971) – The Beautiful Briny Sea
Another disney film I loved is Bedknobs & Broomsticks and I love it when the people went to the island of Naboombu and the sea. What a nice happy song!
15.Hocus Pocus (1993) – I Put A Spell On You
Yes I used to be scared of the film when I was younger but I always loved hearing this song. Plus it’s Bette Midler – a good singer. So coming from the film about three witches coming back alive and trying to kidnap the children of Salem, here is no.15.
14.The Sword In The Stone (1963) – Mad Madame Mim
What a crazy old woman! And such a good villain song – especially for a mad witch, or as she says ‘an ugly old creep!’
13.The Princess & The Frog (2009) – Friends On The Other Side
Sung by Keith David is this amazing villain song. The villain, who is involved with voodoo (in New Orleans), tries to make a deal with a Prince and his butler. Oh and there’s a creepy door that opens by itself in the video and a shadow that moves by itself.
12.The Princess & The Frog (2009) – When We’re Human
One of the late disney films I love. This film contains loads of amazing/lively music (so it should if it’s based in New Orleans/ the Bayou). Here is the song when the frogs who are actually are humans want to be human again. Oh and there’s a trumpet-playing alligator who wants to be human too. Oh disney and your plots!
11.The Jungle Book (1967) – Bare Necessities
Sing it with me, ‘Look for the..’
10.The Lion King (1994) – Be Prepared
One of the best songs for a villain. Very sinister, well it has to be for an amazing film.
9.Mary Poppins (1964) – It’s A Jolly Holiday With Mary
Now not only is it because it’s a nice-sounding song but I love the animation and Dick Van Dyke singing with the farm animals and dancing with the penguins. A song to put anyone in a good mood. Sorry i couldn’t find the whole of the song – it’s missing most of the penguins’ dancing, which is a shame as I like that bit. Song starts at (0:16).
8.The Sword In the Stone (1963) – Higitus Figitus
Yes the boy in the film sounds different during different parts of the films but the film is awesome. And Merlin and Archimedes are hilarious together. Plus the film has magic, so who doesn’t like it. Here is the song, sorry spell, that Merlin uses to get everything in his house into his bag – what a trick! Oh and watch out for that selfish sugar boy!
7.Mary Poppins (1964) – Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Now this was a film I loved when I was a child (and still do) and would love to delve into the world of Mary Poppins. Apart from being famous because this is one of the longest words ever, during the song, Poppins says, “You know, you can say it backwards, which is ‘dociousaliexpilisticfragicalirepus’, but that’s going a bit too far, don’t you think? Although, when the word is spelled backwards, it becomes “suoicodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus”, which is not at all similar to Poppins’ claim. However, her claim was not about spelling it backwards, butsaying it backwards; if one breaks the word into several sections (“super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious”) and recites them in reverse sequence, and also reverses the spelling of “super” to “repus”, one does come close to what Poppins said in the film (From Wikipedia). Did you know that?
6.The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (1996) – A Guy Like You
Another fun song to cheer the family up – during the middle of the film.
5.The Emperor’s New Groove (2001) – Perfect World
One my favourite disney films, because of it’s unique way of showing humour and voiced with David Spade, John Goodman and Eartha Kitt. Plus this song at the beginning of the film is sung by Tom Jones. Hello, the amazing Tom Jones. This film and this song is the one of the best.
4.Aladdin (1992) – Friend Like Me
Sung by Robin Williams is this amazing and funny song. The song is good and lively and the video is great – plus a song about friends is always nice.
3.The Lion King (1994) – Hula Song
I know it’s not a proper song but there’s singing so technically it counts. Besides it’s hilarious, so I definitely couldn’t leave it out. But did you know that the “What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula?” line was improvised by Nathan Lane (Timon) during the recording session. The film makers loved it so much that they incorporated it into the film. We are so glad Nathan Lane came up with that line.
2.The Jungle Book (1967) – I Wanna Be Like You
Now this song comes from that crazy old orangutan, and boy what a swinging song it is. Plus it has an awesome trumpet tune.
1.Song Of The South (1946) – Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah
Everyone loves this song and so do I. I love the film, the animation and characters and even the Splash Mountain which is based on the film, (The ride also plays the film;s music). So here is number 1!
What are yours?
