Disney movies have been a part of our lives ever since we can remember. These films always have the most adorable songs! Here is a list of the top 10 most memorable songs composed for Disney movies.
1. You’ll Be in My Heart from Tarzan
This song was written by Phil Collins and won an Oscar for Best Original Song. The music was so brilliant that it allowed Phil Collins to relaunch his career and get back in the game.
2. Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah from Song of the South
This song was written by Ray Gilbert and Allie Wrubel. It became so popular that Disney used the melody for a majority of their movies and shows for several years. Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah was catchy and upbeat and became an integral part of pop culture at the time.
3. Feed the Birds (Tuppence a Bag) from Mary Poppins
Many people don’t like this song because it does not fit in with the theme of the movie. The scene it plays in has a homeless woman walking around giving bread crumbs to the birds and the locals. This beautiful song by the Sherman Brothers made the scene memorable, to say the least.
4. Colors of the Wind by Pocahontas
This song by Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menkin won an Oscar in 1995 for Best Song. People loved it so much that it featured in the American pop charts for held the #4 slot for many weeks. It is the best in the movie and the lyrics capture the view point of Native Americans perfectly.
5. Someday My Prince Will Come from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
This song is considered to be amongst the best songs ever written for a motion picture. It was written by Frank Churchill and Larry Morey and raised the bar considerably. Not only that, but it also influenced the Jazz genre and those women who believe that their prince charming will arrive by the end of it all.
