THE BEST DISNEY SOUNDTRACKS, RANKED

Grounds for inclusion are probably very arbitrary. Animated Disney movies with something that at least resembles a soundtrack. Which soundtrack is your favorite?
  1. 19.
    Honorable mention: A Goofy Movie (1995)
    Both "Eye to Eye" and "Stand out" are iconic.
  2. 18.
    Pinocchio (1940)
    Mainly memorable for When You Wish Upon a Star and I've Got No Strings, and "memorable" is pushing it.
  3. 17.
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
    The Silly Song was cute, but otherwise pretty forgettable.
  4. 16.
    Peter Pan (1953)
    Besides You Can Fly!, the next main musical number is all about asking native Americans "what made them red". Next.
  5. 15.
    The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)
    Look, I'm sure it's objectively good and all but... It's such a creepy movie... Just creepy... If I wanted heavy religious overtones in my animated soundtracks, I'd listen to the music from the Prince of Egypt.
  6. 14.
    Cinderella (1950)
    The Work Song, Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, and apparently A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes which I don't remember.
  7. 13.
    Lady and the Tramp (1955)
    The soundtrack serves its purpose, but who has ever said their favorite Disney musical was lady and the tramp?
  8. 12.
    The Aristocats (1970)
    The soundtrack is not the most memorable part of the movie, but it does it justice. Ev'rybody Wants to He a Cat is both musically and visually a fun standout.
  9. 11.
    Robin Hood (1973)
    Maybe it's because Robin Hood is one of my favorite childhood movies, but the few songs that are on the soundtrack are great. Not in Nottingham still makes my heart ache.
  10. 10.
    The Jungle Book (1967)
    Besides the song in the end where two young children lock eyes as she sings about when she's "grown" (uh, weird) the songs tend to skew comical. They're still classics though.
  11. 9.
    Lilo & Stitch (2002)
    I want to disqualify it for basically just being Elvis songs (the soundtrack has more Elvis songs than any Elvis movie, fun fact), but it sets the tone for the movie SO well. Both He Mele No Lilo and Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride are amazing.
  12. 8.
    Pocahontas (1995)
    Colors of the Wind was worthy of its Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy, and Just Around the Riverbend is a great "I Want" song. I have other beef with Pocahontas as a movie, but the music is A+
  13. 7.
    Beauty and the Beast (1991)
    Beauty and the Beast is beautiful, Be Our Guest and Gaston are great, and most importantly, Something There is the best example of an enemies to friends to lovers theme
  14. 6.
    Aladdin (1992)
    Arabian Nights is an amazing intro, One Jump Ahead serves as exposition, Robin Williams delivers two great performances, and A Whole New World set a new standard for Disney duets. Won two Oscars, two golden globes, a Grammy.
  15. 5.
    Tarzan (1999)
    Proof that Phil Collins can do no wrong. Both more comedic (Trashin' the Camp) and emotional (You'll Be In my Heart). He really didn't have to do me like that with Two Worlds.
  16. 4.
    Mulan (1998)
    Solid all the way through. I'll Make a Man Out of You works amazingly as an acapella arrangement (if you haven't heard it, Google the scattertones), probably as a workout song, and is singlehandedly responsible for once putting Donny Osmond on my "most listened" Spotify artists.
  17. 3.
    The Little Mermaid (1989)
    Fun, upbeat songs with a Caribbean vibe, one of the most memorable "I want" songs in recent memory, a dramatic song for the villain, the Little Mermaids has all your bases covered.
  18. 2.
    Hercules (1997)
    Vastly underrated both as a movie and as a soundtrack. Go the Distance and I Won't Say (I'm in Love) were instant classics, but the gospel choir of the Muses elevated every song.
  19. 1.
    The Lion King (1994)
    At the same time recognizably musical-esque and enjoyable to listen to on its own. Both humorous and dramatic. I'm a sucker for a big choir. The movie would not be the same with a different soundtrack. I say this about everything but truly, iconic.
