Best Animated Disney Soundtrack

So, I got to thinking.

I just sat down with my family and watched a couple of Disney films - Aladdin and Pocahontas (by the way I realized I had NEVER seen Pocahontas so a review of that will be up some time in the near future) - and I got to thinking, "What animated Disney film has the best soundtrack?"

Now, I know you are immediately thinking of so many great Disney songs in your head, right? But, it's pretty safe to say that each and every Disney film has at least one gem of a song.

Off the top of my head there's "Be My Guest", "Circle of Life", "Under the Sea", "When You Wish Upon a Star", etc.

But, which film has a soundtrack that if not all of the songs, most of the songs are great.

After sitting through Aladdin again, I have to think this one has to be near the top of the list with "Prince Ali", "Friend Like Me", "A Whole New World", "Arabian Nights", "One Jump Ahead". Each song sticks out.

Are there others? Yes there are. So I want to hear from you - what is the best (or your favorite) soundtrack from an animated Disney film? (must be animated, no Mary Poppins).

  1. Aladdin is one of my (if not my actual) favorite(s). But you know what? The Little Mermaid is a STRONG contender when it comes to overall soundtrack.

    Did you know that Aladdin actually has some of the fewest songs of all the Disney animated musicals?
