I've been thinking a lot about this. Mainly because my son went through a phase of demanding to watch Disney on YouTube. I've seen all the classical musical numbers. I've seen them a thousand times. It got me thinking: what is the best Disney song of all time?
I think it's an insanely difficult, completely subjective question. But I have my own personal thoughts.
For example, I think 'Akuna Matata' is good, but it's just a rip off of 'Bear Necessities' from the Jungle Book, which is far superior.
I think that — pound for pound — Aladdin has better songs than The Lion King, but I also think that 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' is better than 'A Whole New World'. I've argued for hours with my wife about this. Literally hours.
But my all time favourite? There are a few contenders — the afore-mentioned 'Bear Necessities' and 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' must be up there. I think the 'Circle of Life' might be mine. It's certainly one of the most iconic.
What are some of your favourites? Let me know in the comments below.
