We are now at the epitome of the Disney Renaissance! This is the film that became a nigh unanimous hit by critics and audiences alike! This is the movie that, to this day, is the highest-grossing traditional animated film EVER with a total gross of almost a billion dollars! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about…
Well, due to the popularity of my last “Top 13” list, I decided to make another one! And today’s post takes a dive into an aspect of Disney’s animated films that is loved by everyone: its songs!
The vast majority of the Disney Canon films are musicals, or at least feature a song or two. And the magic of Disney along with the magic of many of Disney’s songwriters including the Sherman Brothers,
Alan Menken and Howard Ashman,
and many others whose names are relatively unknown to the majority of the world, make these songs enjoyable, cherished, and memorable to us all!
So the question is, “Which of the songs are my favorites?”. To find that out, I went through all the songs of the Disney Canon films and picked out the ones that I really loved…all 40 of them!
Yeah, then came the nigh impossible challenge of shortening that “shortlist” to 13! (This was soooo much harder than figuring out my top 13 favorite animated Disney canon films)! So if you don’t see your favorite Disney song on here, don’t be mad! It most likely was in my shortlist to begin with and didn’t make my top 13!
Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin”, is coming to Broadway in 2014! The show will feature music and lyrics by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Tim Rice of course as well as by Chad Beguelin. Are you excited for this? Do you think this show is a good idea?
