From Page to Screen is a feature Bieke made because she wanted to talk about more than books here on my blog! In this feature we’ll be talking about movies, animes and TV-shows. And not only book adaptions, everything is fair game. So if you have a movie, TV-show or anime you want me to talk about, or you have a topic related to one of those three things you want to discuss, you can submit it on this page through the contact form.
My Top 10 Disney Songs
Let’s be honest here, people. We all love Disney songs. They’re just so gooooood! And catchy! They get stuck in your head and won’t ever leave. I mean, how many of you still know the words to Let it Go? Right, that’s my point. So since I’m a big fan of Disney, as you might know, I think it’s about time I share my top 10 Disney songs. I did make some rules:
~ Only Disney songs.
~ One song per movie in the actual top 10!
~ No covers from the soundtrack or end credits, only songs from IN the movie.
I do have a few honorable mentions! Click on the titles to listen to them on Youtube! I See the Light from Tangled, A Whole New World from Aladdin, Let it Go from Frozen, Reflection from Mulan, I’m still Here from Treasure Planet and The Bells of Notre Dame from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Now on to the top 10! This IS ranked so number one is most definitely my favorite.
10. Be Prepared from The Lion King
I mean… I had to put at least one Lion King song in there. Even though I think the movie itself is a bit overrated, the music is glorious. And Be Prepared is by far my favorite. Who doesn’t love a good villain song?
9. Friends on The Other Side from Princess and the Frog
Again, I love villain songs and this one is just so awesome! It’s colorful, upbeat, catchy,… I love all the songs in the movie and the movie itself, but again, the villain gets the best song.
8. Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid
This song has gone down on my top 10 over the years. The movie too. What can I say? Disney has made some great movies or I’ve seen better movies since I first saw this one. But I can’t leave it out of any top 10. And though this movie does have a great villain song, Part of Your World is my favorite!
7. I’ll Make a Man out of You from Mulan
Reflection is in my honorable mentions, but my favorite song from this movie is I’ll Make a Man out of You. It’s just so fun.
6. Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas
This movie is so underrated! It’s so good. It really is. And Savages is a great song, but yeah… I have to put Colors of the Wind on this list.
5. Friend Like Me from Aladdin
Yeah, A Whole New World is great, it’s in my honorable mentions! But my favorite song from this movie is Friend Like Me and all the credit for that goes to the late & great Robin Williams. Let the song speak for itself!
4. Mother Knows Best from Tangled
Tangled has a lot of great songs, but yet again, my favorite is the villain song! If you listen to the music alone without the lyrics, this sounds like a song for the main character, not the villain. But add the lyrics and you get one fantastic villain song.
3. Beauty and the Beast (Tale as Old as Time) from Beauty and the Beast
This movie is still my all time favorite Disney movie. It hasn’t been topped yet. And I really, really never get tired of hearing that beautiful song and seeing their dance and the beautiful animation during that whole ballroom scene.
2. Go The Distance from Hercules
Oh god I never get tired of this song. Not the movie version and not the Michael Bolton version from the end credits. Such a good song. Aahhh, I love it so much!
1. Heaven’s Light/Hellfire from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
I put these two together because they just… They really do belong together and they are in such great contrast with each other. Heaven’s Light is light and full of love while Hellfire is without a doubt the most dark song Disney ever made. The music, the lyrics, the animation, it’s all so glorious. Also, this movie is so very, very underrated. I put the opening and ending song in the honorable mentions because, really it’s also amazing. If you’ve never seen this movie, watch and listen to this song and if that doesn’t convince you, nothing will.
