What’s a Disney movie without a catchy, toe-tapping song that gets stuck in your head for days and days? Have you ever wondered what the top ten Disney songs of all time are? Everyone has a favourite, whether you’re an avid Disney fan or a Disney dabbler.

Here’s a list of my top ten Disney songs:

1. I Just Can’t Wait to be King – The Lion King

This is possibly the catchiest song of all time. It’s certainly my favourite as it’s one that makes me want to stand with my arms spread, belting out, “everybody look left, everybody look right, everywhere you look I’m standing in the spotlight!”

Simba, the lion cub, wearing a mane made of leaves singing 'I just can't wait to be king' which is the number one song on my list of top ten Disney songs

The song is also so visually beautiful with all of the colours and the animals singing and dancing along with Simba, Nala and Zazzu.

It’s just worthy of taking the number one spot on the list of top ten Disney songs.

2. Be Our Guest – Beauty and the Beast

Similarly to I Just Can’t Wait to be King, this ensemble is just amazing with such intricate detail. It was very close to taking the top spot in the top ten Disney songs of all time. The lyrics by Howard Ashman are just incredible, making you feel that warm, fuzzy Disney feeling that everyone adores. Lumiere singing this song is perfect.

If you ever visit Disney World, make sure you dine at the Be Our Guest restaurant and ask to “try the grey stuff” as it really is delicious. (Click the link to discover more Disney World Easter Eggs and Secrets)

3. Under the Sea – The Little Mermaid

Another gem from the wonderful Howard Ashman. This song is a favourite for so many and is recognised worldwide. Sebastian the Jamaican crab singing this song is fun for the whole family to sing along to in the car.

This may even be others’ number one in their top ten Disney songs list. It’s a strong contender, indeed.

4. When Will My Life Begin – Tangled

I absolutely love Mandy Moore’s voice and think she sang this song perfectly. It’s definitely one I love to belt out at the top of my voice when I’m cleaning the house.

5. Love is an Open Door – Frozen

Pick a partner for this fabulous duet and sing your heart out as you finish each other’s sandwiches with this song. I know Let It Go is considered one of the best Disney songs but the lyrics to this song are just wonderful. Sorry, Elsa, but Anna gets fifth place in the list of top ten Disney songs.

6. Friend Like Me – Aladdin

Casting Robin Williams as the Genie was a stroke of genie-us (sorry!) – and he sang this song, along with Prince Ali, perfectly. It’s catchy and bouncy and full of the late, great Robin Williams’ personality. There was no way this song was being missed off the Top Ten Disney Songs list.

7. You’re Welcome – Moana

I think Moana is such an underrated movie. It’s such a beautiful movie and one full of catchy, fun songs but The Rock singing You’re Welcome is brilliant – that rap in the middle is quality and I have a couple of friends who can sing it word-perfect and I’m in awe every time I hear them. Can you?

8. Out There – The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Quasimodo is one of the sweetest characters of all time and his song Out There really tugs at my heart strings.

9. He’s A Tramp – Lady and the Tramp

Peg is certainly my favourite character from Lady and the Tramp (as well as the beaver who bites off Lady’s muzzle – 66%) so it’s only right that her sassy song, He’s A Tramp, makes the list of Top Ten Disney Songs.

10. I Won’t Say (I’m in Love) – Hercules

Another movie that I think is quite underrated and, especially, the character of Meg. This song is one of those that gets stuck in your head even when you only know a few of the lyrics. I absolutely love it and that it’s quite like the opposite of what Disney usually represents – Meg’s not singing from the rooftops that she’s in love, she’s trying to deny it.

  1. It’s funny because even though I love music, I’ve never really liked musicals. Me and my son, he was 13, went to see a movie once, there were no seats, so we ended up watching Frozen, and you know, we both absolutely loved it. And yes, the songs are good in that film ?

    1. I love this story – thank you for sharing! Frozen is probably one of the most versatile Disney movies as it has something for everybody – there are definitely a lot of adult jokes that go over the kids’ heads! ? I’m glad you enjoyed it and even the songs too!
