* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' is the only Disney-style musical Pixar film. And all the songs are wonderful.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHFy3YWpRx8 "You've Got a Friend in Me"]],
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_F2Fl17RX8 "Strange Things"]] and
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFkUvGyE-ZE "I Will Go Sailing No More"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVy5GJE0ZUk "Infinity and Beyond"]], the song that plays during the final flying sequence (or rather, the "falling... with style" sequence) is absolutely beautiful.
* From ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=px0j1EHF8Y0 "When She Loved Me".]] An utterly heartwrenching song by Jessie that was said to have made both Tim Allen and Tom Hanks tear up during the premier.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9X6tmvPr6c The Cleaner]] from ''Toy Story 2''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DsdldUFgKg Woody's Roundup]] from ''Toy Story 2''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ4s6rbyjoM Ride Like The Wind.]] The reprise of the first movie's "Infinity and Beyond" near the end really sells it.
* From ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'':
** The [[spoiler: Spanish]] version of "You've Got a Friend In Me" [[spoiler: (technically, "Hay un Amigo en Mi")]] completely makes the movie.
** The Oscar-winning song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw7ZjO-Nf5Q We Belong Together.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmfmEPSos5c "Cowboy!",]] the song heard in the intro of [=TS3=].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt5Fd6MISZU The Claw]] from ''Toy Story 3'', one of Pixar's tensest, most nightmarish, most heartwrenching scenes ever has the music to match.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVUyLAuPGhg So Long.]] Just listening to it can get your eyes misty.
** Strange Things... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cLSi8BzdlA Tomorrowland Arrangement]].
* From ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'':
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMwSNDRP90o main theme]] of will make any listener want to get up and dance.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neTk2HjCycc The Scare Floor.]]
** It's a jazzy, fast-paced mix of the end song, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dixXub_dmA If I Didn't]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfFepOnARFA Have You]]". Newman won an Academy Award for that song.
* From ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'':
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psqw7dcfXrc Young Michael]]".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gk-E81w4W2M Main Title]]".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRKcjqBShC0 Rise and Shine]]".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXijK5wpUGE Field Trip]]".
* From ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'':
** The mood-altering song, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGlmCShMQpI Our Town]]".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_q3GxxdVVU McQueen and Sally.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylHlMTHZOBo theme.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2ZinpY-X_E The Flik Machine.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEaOhaxka8g The Time Of Your Life.]]

[[folder:Thomas Newman]]
* From ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPW3mvAN0Rc Define Dancing]] and
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_6KuRRKLAk Down to Earth (the credits song)]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvA78Z-W9UE First Date.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez0flm9acWc "Fixing Wall-E"]] While not ''Awesome'' Music per se, the beginning is a classic moment.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdRI0VmjwsM The Axiom]] is also a fantastic score. The parts that play when WALL-E and the spaceship are flying past the lunar rover and flag on the Moon, and then through the rings of Saturn, are almost impossibly beautiful.
* From ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'':
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4ULNs8B1LQ The Turtle Lope]] is quite adventurous and epic.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYuXG0C2tsk Nemo Egg / Main Title]] but most especially the ones that play during two very [[TearJerker emotionally gut-wrenching]] scenes-
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GVsnvqjjr8 "Fronds Like These"]].
** It's surprisingly dark and scary for a Pixar film, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xb3_civxeA Swim Down]] is amazing. Starts off dark and hopeless but erupts into triumph at the end. It helps that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khH8C5yecyE this]] and 'Fronds like These' follows it on the soundtrack too.

[[folder:Michael Giacchino]]
* The soundtrack for ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', by Creator/MichaelGiacchino, invites you to pick a moment.
** The four-minute-plus "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaLegF2hAxI Married Life]]" underscores a dialogue-free montage that follows Ellie and Carl from the altar to Carl's arrival home after Ellie's memorial service -- whimsical, lyrical, and heartbreaking.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCOsKri8Glw Carl Goes Up]]". "So long, boys! I'll send you a postcard from Paradise Falls!"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulX2Syh-yi8 Paradise Found]]", in which the clouds part to reveal Paradise Falls and the rest of the plateau in all their glory.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbrdx6nQQO4 Stuff We Did]] -- in which Ellie gets Carl to [[TookALevelInBadass level up]] ''from beyond the grave''.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbAUUQEu3N8 The Small Mailman Returns]]". Russell ceases to be TheLoad.
** ...and basically everything from that point to the end of the credits.
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x2xY3AoHEQ Escape from Muntz Mountain]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yHHPX1Qgxo Memories can Weigh you Down]], and that storm song. And everybody's theme at one point sounds epically awesome. Yes, even Russell's, which doesn't sound like much at first in 52 Chachki Pickup.
** Really, it's no wonder this won the Oscar for Best Original Score.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzI5NIwhy1w My Spirit of Adventure]] from the credits basically combines every 1930s style possible.
* The soundtrack for ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' is the best ''Film/JamesBond'' score never written. And then Michael Giacchino went and wrote it. Highlights include:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8LeIL32Nqg Missile Lock]],
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSHJ8fd9Q2s Life's Incredible Again]],
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BDze6XUhKg Kronos Unveiled]],
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFUKRtRM21Y Lithe or Death]],
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dD__u6f4KdQ The Incredits]], and oh for God's sake, just listen to the [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=2D1F01FC577D3431 whole damn soundtrack already.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnKL4qk2Hps Wall Rat]].
