Top 5 Disney Songs of All-Time! (With a Bonus Extra!)

You see this list all over the internet, but we've decided it's time for us to create one for our own...The Top 5 Disney Songs of All-Time! Included will be our picks for the best songs - they may not be your favorites, but that's okay! If you disagree with one, we'd love to hear which song you'd rather see in the Top 5! Let us know in the comments! Without further ado, we begin with Number 5...

5. Part of Your World - The Little Mermaid
This song makes you feel so many emotions. You're sad for Ariel, you're laughing at her usage of words like, "feet" and "street", and ultimately, just blown away by the vocals on the track. It's an all-around beautiful song and does such a Magical job of exploring the theme of the entire film. If you haven't taken the opportunity to sing along with Ariel in a while, do yourself the favor. It'll put a smile on your face! 

4. A Whole New World - Aladdin 
After Prince Ali gets off his high-horse at the parade, he gets a real chance to impress Princess Jasmine, and does he ever. Thankfully, we're along for the whole ride, and their duet is nothing short of amazing entertainment. Of all versions of this song, the duets you hear throughout the web, it's the original from the film that really tugs at our heartstrings. It's one of the best duets in any Disney film, and certainly finds its home on the Top 5 list!

3. Can You Feel The Love Tonight - The Lion King
Starting with the solo by Timon, coupled with a duet in the middle with Simba and Nala, and capped off with another Timon and Pumbaa duet, this song is a certified classic. While the message is fairly plain, it's another that embodies the essence of the film beautifully. While my coworkers would argue they're annoyed with the song (I sing it OFTEN at work), they have to agree with this one. It's a wonderful track and absolutely belongs on this list.

2. The Bare Necessities - The Jungle Book (Animated)
One of the funniest songs in the Disney catalog, The Bare Necessities is a true classic. Especially by the time-tested standard of a classic. Find a song that's more fun to sing along with than this delightful tune! Okay, that's not a test, you might have one in mind. But, for us, it embodies everything that Disney's about: Fun, Friends, and Love. Baloo the Bear is a true friend to Mowgli and this song is the perfect example of that. 

1. Colors of the Wind - Pocahontas
A heavy tune, for sure, but one that everyone needs to hear. While the entire movie might not be the most beloved by Disney fans, this song is surely at the top of many lists. More importantly, the message within it is so strong, and true, to the lessons we're taught as children. This song won an Oscar, and for good reason: it's remarkably beautiful, powerfully sung, and sends a message about judgment and understanding. Take a moment today to listen to this song; then go about your day with a newfound appreciation for nature and culture. 

**BONUS TRACK**

It's that time of year - Holiday songs are playing in nearly every establishment in America. You can't escape them, but why on Earth would you want to?! Here's an awesome rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas from Brian Hull - the premier Disney impressionist! You'll love it!
We hope you enjoyed our list! Let us know if you have others you'd like to see in the comments! Until next week, have a Magical day!
