Not only does Mark Mancina's instrumental score for the movie qualify for this trope, but some of those pieces, including "Moves Like an Ape, Looks Like a Man" perfectly fit the Crowning Music of Heartwarming trope.
Acclaimed director Mary Zimmerman produced an adaptation that embraced both the original Kipling stories and the Disney version, using songs from it (as well as "Jungle Rhythm" from The Jungle Book 2). Here is their version of "I Wanna Be Like You".
Think that's chilling, try the song they had planned for Shere Khan that was cut, which showcases his character as a regally ruthless hunter with a cold, dark baritone: it was cut for being too dark, among other reasons as cut characters and characterization.
While James Newton Howard's works with Disney is purely non-musical (save Treasure Planet: the songs were written mainly by Goo Goo Dolls' frontman John Rzeznik) he nonetheless deserves mention for his works in 3 films:
Also, "Toaster's Dream". Yes, it plays during one of the most terrifying scenes in the whole movie, but it is actually very epic and creepy at the same time.
"The Storm". Lampy, the comic relief, nearly getting himself killed just to recharge their battery in a storm to save not only Blanky, but the rest of his friends as well? Coolest. Scene. Ever. And the music just about proves it.
The Transformation sequence in Brother Bear has a beautiful Inuit song playing over the entire scene which makes this scene even more awesome. The best part, the song is also available in English on the soundtrack and when you know what it actually means it just fits this trope even better.
As anyone who's had to play it knows, the finale of Stravinsky's 1919 Firebird Suite is an absolute bitch to play because of the changes in meter. It is also epically gorgeous and heroic, as evidenced in its use in Fantasia 2000.
The Great Mouse Detective is one of the more fondly remembered films from Disney's 1980s dark age, and the songs are one reason for this.
The leitmotif "This Land" which recurs throughout The Lion King—the most poignant occurring when Simba cuddles up against Mufasa's body and later when he speaks to his father's spirit, the most stirring and triumphant when Simba claims the throne in the finale. While the whole movie was incredible, it would not have been half as emotionally effective without this music.
"Circle of Life" surely blows many away, especially when accompanied by the opening animation of the film.
"The King of Pride Rock" takes parts from both of the above, combines them, and adds to them to create a nearly six minute long masterpiece of modern orchestra.
The Broadway version of "King of Pride Rock" takes from several other songs from that version, and ends up with a spine-tingly epic conclusion. (Too bad Simba's Roar of Awesome wasn't included in the soundtrack...) Also of note are "Shadowland", a slow, haunting song, "The Lioness Hunt" and "Grassland Chant", both sung in Zulu, and "Endless Night" which, well, speaks for itself. The whole Broadway production is amazing, actually.
A short instrumental piece of "Honor to Us All" that plays over the opening titles.
And the music that plays as Mulan slides down the lantern rope near the end of the film, and shortly thereafter the music that plays while the entire population of the Forbidden City bows to her. None of these are on the official soundtrack.
Peter Pan 2: Return to Neverland had the song "I'll Try". If you don't cry hearing the pain and loss of childhood Jane's suffering having grown up in World War II, you'll cry when the downtrodden tune gets reused and revamped at the end to be an uplifting song about finding something to believe in despite it all.
Frozen has music hailed as Broadway-worthy. (No surprise, considering Robert and Kristen Lopez helped write these songs after helping write Tony winners Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.)
Academy Award winner "Let it Go", sung by Broadway legend Idina Menzel as Elsa, is generally considered a bonafide showstopper that deserves to take its place alongside numbers like "Circle of Life" and "Beauty and the Beast". Not only are the melody and vocals gorgeous, but the visuals are simply breathtaking. It's also, at least for now, the most popular video on one of Disney's official channels on Youtube.
"Vuelie (feat. Cantus)" is one of the most beautiful sounding openings to a Disney animated film (based on a traditional Norwegian song), while "Frozen Heart" sets the adventurous mood and the locale. Together these two blend the spiritual and physical mood of the film; the atmosphere is set in such a elegant but epic way. "Vuelie" is something of a throwback to both "Circle of Life" and "The Bells of Notre Dame" - the opening song is a big choral piece in a language other than English.
Frozen went on to become Disney's most acclaimed animated movie in years, and one of their biggest blockbusters of all time, making the title of the song seem rather fitting to the movie's reception.
"Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" provides a rather emotional example of an Age Progression Song, deftly balancing the cute factor of Anna asking the title question to Elsa, with the tragedy of them growing emotionally distant. When the song reaches the point when the girls lose their parents, Kristen Bell (as teenage Anna) gets to demonstrate her singing talents for the first time in the picture, and successfully brings on the feels.
"Love is an Open Door" sounds like a nice addition to Disney's ever-growing library of pretty Love Themes. Then such lines as "With you, I found my place" amazingly take on new meaning after Hans betrays Anna.
Special mention goes to Ron Jones' excellent score for the series. Several pieces he composed are suspenseful, melancholic, amusing, exciting, and triumphant; they even rival some theatrical scores. Here's a sample.
SRMTHG: The music played at the very end of the first season finale, and all variations on it. Also, the music played when Antauri first appears as the Silver Monkey, and all variations on that. Hands down.
The intro theme to D-TV (which was a series of music videos using footage from Disney shorts and movies made for Disney Channel back in the day). Does the song scream 1980's? Yeah. Is it still awesome? Yeah.
