[[AC:[[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney Theatrical]]]]

[[folder:Alan Menken]]
* The score for Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'':
** "[[ Be Our Guest]]", Academy Award nominee. Funnily, Menken originally thought it was the dumbest piece of music he could ever possibly write, intending it as a "throw away" melody in order for Howard Ashman to write lyrics.
** "[[ Human Again]]". Originally cut from the film, but was present in the musical and eventually reinstated in the 2002 DVD release.
%%** "[[ Prologue]]".
%%** "[[ West Wing]]".
%%** "[[ Belle]]" and [[ Reprise]], the former an Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ Gaston]]".
%%** "[[ Something There]]".
%%** "[[ The Mob Song]]".
%%** "[[ Transformation]]".
* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'':
** "[[ Proud Of Your Boy]]". Ultimately cut from the film, but present in some stage productions. The original version is sung by Menken himself; a [[ 2004 Remake]] was sung by Clay Aiken.
** "[[ Why Me?]]", [[EvilSorcerer Jafar's]] [[CutSong deleted]] VillainSong. It's awesome even if it might have been a DarkReprise of "[[ Prince Ali]]"
%%** "[[ A Whole New World]]", Academy Award winner.
%%** The Oscar nominated "[[ Friend Like Me]]".
%%** "[[ Arabian Nights]]" and "[[ Legend of the Lamp]]".
%%** "[[ One Jump Ahead]]" and [[ Reprise]].
%%** "[[ Prince Ali]]" and [[ Reprise]].
%%** "[[ The Cave Of Wonders]]".
%%** "[[ Happy End In Agrabah]]".
* ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'':
** "[[ Colors of the Wind]]", Academy Award winner.
** "[[ If I Never Knew You]]". Cut because it slowed the pace of the movie, it was reinstated in the 2005 DVD release.
%%** "[[ The Virginia Company]]" and [[ Reprise]].
%%** "[[ Steady As The Beating Drum]]" and [[ Reprise]].
%%** "[[ Just Around The Riverbend]]".
%%** "Listen With Your Heart" [[ Part I]] and [[ Part II.]]
%%** "[[ Mine Mine Mine]]".
%%** "Savages" [[ Part 1]] and [[ Part 2.]]
%%** "[[ I'll Never See Him Again]]".

%%* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'':
%%** "[[ The Bells of Notre Dame]]" and [[ Reprise.]]
%%** "[[ Out There]]".
%%** "[[ Topsy Turvy]]".
%%** "[[ A Guy Like You]]".
%%** "[[ Heaven's Light/Hellfire]]".
%%** "[[ The Court of Miracles]]".
%%** "[[ God Help The Outcasts]]".
%%** "[[ Someday]]".
%%** "[[ Sanctuary]]".
%%* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'':
%%** "[[ The]] [[ Gospel]] [[ Truth]]".
%%** "[[ Go The Distance]]" and [[ Reprise]], the former an Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ One Last Hope]]".
%%** "[[ I Won't Say I'm In Love]]".
%%** "[[ A Star Is Born]]".
%%** "[[ Zero To Hero]]". ''"Yes indeed!"''
%%** "[[ Oh Mighty Zeus]]".
%%** "[[ Cutting The Thread]]".
%%* People don't tend to look upon ''Disney/HomeOnTheRange'' [[OddballInTheSeries very]] [[SoOkayItsAverage well]], but the songs deserve some sort of recognition.
%%** "[[ Little Patch Of Heaven]]".
%%** "[[ (You Ain't) Home On The Range]]" and [[ Reprise.]]
%%** "[[ Yodel-Adle-Eedle-Idle-Oo]]".
%%** "[[ Will The Sun Ever Shine Again]]". Menken himself revealed at the 2013 D23 Expo in Anaheim that the song was initially written about his views on the aftermath of 9/11.
%%** "[[ Wherever The Trail May Lead]]".
%%** "[[ Anytime You Need A Friend]]"
%%*** [[ Alan Menken version.]]
%%** "[[ Cows In Town/Saloon Song]]".
%%** "[[ Buck]]".
%%** "[[ My Farm Is Saved/Little Patch of Heaven (Reprise)]]".
%%** "[[ Cows To The Rescue]]".
%%* From the part animation, part live-action film ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'':
%%** "[[ True Love's Kiss]]".
%%** "[[ Happy Working Song]]", Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ That's How You Know]]", Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ So Close]]", Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ Ever Ever After]]".
%%** [[ "Narissa Arrives"]], the theme that plays when [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Narissa arrives in the human world]].
%%** "[[ Enchanted Suite]]".
* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': The songs may not be up to a ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' or ''[[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Little Mermaid]]'' calibre, but they're still great.
** "[[ When Will My Life Begin]]". A nice, upbeat song that expresses Rapunzel's very slight frustration at not being able to leave.
** Also [[ "Waiting For The Lights"]], the gorgeous score piece that directly precedes it. This piece perfectly expresses the emotions felt in the scene.
%%** "[[ When Will My Life Begin (Reprise)]]".
%%** "[[ Mother Knows Best]]".
%%** "[[ Healing Incantation]]".
%%** "[[ I've Got A Dream]]".
%%** "[[ Mother Knows Best (Reprise)]]".
%%** "[[ I See The Light]]", Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ Kingdom Dance]]". Holy cow.

[[folder:Randy Newman]]
* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'': Let's see, which songs were in the movie again?
** [[ "Almost There"]], Academy Award nominee. Ladies and gentlemen, Disney is back!
** The DarkReprise of "[[ Friends on the Other Side]]" is a deliciously ironic bit of horror.
%%** [[ "Down in New Orleans" (Prologue)]].
%%** [[ "Down in New Orleans"]], Academy Award nominee.
%%** [[ "Friends on the Other Side"]].
%%** [[ "When We're Human"]].
%%** [[ "Gonna Take You There"]].
%%** [[ "Ma Belle Evangeline"]].
%%** [[ "Dig A Little Deeper"]].
%%** [[ "Down in New Orleans (Finale)"]]. There's not one single song in this film that should ''not'' be included in this trope.
%%* And here's the music that they used in the trailer! ''[[ Enjoy.]]''
%%* Speaking of which... the credits theme, "Never Knew I Needed". Not to mention Randy Newman's beautiful score.

[[folder:Phil Collins/Mark Mancina]]
* Phil Collins did ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' right:
** "[[ You'll Be In My Heart]]", Academy Award winner. [[ Film Version.]]
** 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.
%%** "[[ Two Worlds]]".
%%*** [[ Reprise.]]
%%*** [[ Finale.]]
%%** "[[ Son of Man]]".
%%** "[[ Strangers Like Me]]".
%%** "[[ Trashin' The Camp]]".
%%* From ''Disney/BrotherBear'':
%%** "[[ Welcome]]".
%%** "[[ Look Through My Eyes]]".
%%** "[[ On My Way]]".
%%** "[[ No Way Out]]".
%%** "[[ Great Spirits]]".
%%*** [[ Phil Collins version.]]
%%** "[[ Awakes As A Bear]]".
%%** "[[ Transformation]]".
%%*** [[ English version.]]
%%** "[[ Three Brothers]]".
%%** "[[ Wilderness of Danger]]".

[[folder:Sherman Brothers]]
* From ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' we have the classic: Besides having the extremely catchy "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers," the DisneyAcidSequence [[ "Heffalumps and Woozles,"]] the main theme "Winnie-The-Pooh" itself is legendary.
%%** "[[ Winnie the Pooh]]".
%%** "[[ The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers]]".
* ''Disney/TheJungleBook'':
** [[ "I Wanna Be Like You"]] is possibly the best jazz song ever to grace the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. Plus, it's ''[[EarWorm damn catchy.]]'' "Well, oobee-do..."
** 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 ''Disney/TheJungleBook2''). [[ Here]] is their version of "I Wanna Be Like You".
** Academy Award-nominated "Look for the ''baaare ne-cess-ities, the simple bare necessities....''" (Not written by the Sherman Brothers though, but by Terry Gilkyson.) If you didn't like the simple "Bare Necessities"... then there's always ''[[ this version of the song]] by none other than Music/LouisArmstrong''. Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it.
** On the instrumental side of things, "[[ The Overture]]" and "[[ Tiger Fight]]" are pretty much amazing. Tiger Fight from 0:48 to the end is epic and makes driving a very fun adventure.
%%** "[[ Colonel Hathi's March]]".
%%** [[ "That's What Friends Are For".]]
%%*** 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.
%%*** In an awesome case of WhatCouldHaveBeen, Walt wanted Music/TheBeatles to voice the vultures. And it would've happened, if it wasn't for ''[[Music/JohnLennon one member]]'s [[ForWantOfANail schedule conflicting]].''
* ''Disney/TheAristocats'': "[[ Everybody Wants to be a Cat]]". Of course, there's a bit of ValuesDissonance there, with the incredibly racist Siamese cat playing Chopsticks, but it's still a catchy song.
%%* "[[ Wherever You Are]]" from ''Pooh's Grand Adventure''.
* From ''Film/MaryPoppins'':
** [[ "Feed The Birds"]] and [[ "A Spoonful of Sugar"]] are awesome.
*** "Feed the Birds" should get special recognition for being Walt Disney's personal favorite song written for one of his films.
*** There's also [[ this]] instrumental DarkReprise during Mr. Banks' "walk of shame" the bank.
** "[[ Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious]]/Even though the sound of it something quite atrocious/If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious/Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"
** [[ Everybody now... Ohhhhhhhhhh... LET'S... GO... Fly a Kite!]]/Up... To the Highest Height!/Let's... Go... Fly a Kite/and send... it soaring/Up through the atmosphere/Up where the air is clear/Oh, let's gooooooooo... FLY A KITE!"
%%** "[[ Chim Chim Cher-ee]]", Academy Award winner.
%%** "[[ Step In Time]]".
%%** "[[ Stay Awake]]".
%%** "[[ Penguin Dance]]".
%%** "[[ Jolly Holiday]]". For the Broadway version, the British composers George Stiles and Anthony Drewe [[ expanded on the song nicely.]]
%%** "[[ I Love To Laugh]]".
* [[ The opening song]] from ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'''s almost unbearably moving.[[ "Rubity, Scrubity, Sweepity"]] (the self cleaning kitchen). It's brief, but it's a major EarWorm.
%%** "[[ Higitus Figitus]]".
%%** "[[ That's What Makes the World Go Round]]".
%%** "[[ A Most]] [[ Befuddling Thing]]".
%%** "[[ Mad Madame Mim]]".
%%* From ''Film/BedknobsAndBroomsticks'':
%%** "[[ The Age of Not Believing]]", Academy Award nominee.
%%** "[[ The Beautiful Briny Sea]]".
%%** "[[ The Old Home Guard]]".
%%* From ''Film/TheParentTrap'':
%%** "[[ Let's Get Together]]".
%%** "[[ For Now, For Always]]".
%%** "[[ The Parent Trap]]".
%%* ''The Happiest Millionire'': "Fortuosity".
%%What about it? As written, this is a ZeroContextExample.

[[folder:James Newton Howard]]
While Music/JamesNewtonHoward's work with Disney is purely non-musical (save ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'': the songs were written mainly by Goo Goo Dolls' frontman John Rzeznik) he nonetheless deserves mention for his work on three films:

%%* ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'':
%%** "[[ The Egg Travels]]".
%%** "[[ The Courtship]]".
%%** "[[ Across The Desert]]".
%%** "[[ Inner Sanctum / The Nesting Grounds]]".
%%** "[[ It Comes With A Pool]]".
%%** "[[ Aladar and Neera]]".
%%* ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'':
%%** "[[ The Submarine]]".
%%** "[[ The Leviathan]]".
%%** "[[ The Journey]]".
%%** "[[ Touring The City]]".
%%** "[[ The Secret Swim]]".
%%** "[[ The Crystal Chamber]]".
%%** "[[ Just Do It]]".
%%* ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' (songs written by John Rzeznik):
%%** "[[ 12 Years Later]]".
%%** "[[ To The SpacePort]]".
%%** "[[ The Launch]]".
%%** "[[ Silver Leaves]]".
%%** "[[ I'm Still Here (Jim's theme)]]".
%%** "[[ Always Know Where You Are]]".
%%* ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'':
%%** "[[ Maleficent Suite]]".
%%** "[[ The Christening]]".
%%** "[[ The Spindle's Power]]".
%%** "[[ The Curse Won't Reverse]]".

%%* [[ The title song]] of ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros''.
%%What about it? This is zero-context as written.
* [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad You can't reason with a headless man]]...[[ but you can dance to his song.]]
* Most of the music from ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' is pretty good, but [[ "Eye To Eye"]] takes the cake as the absolute best song of the movie.
** Closely matched by "[[ Stand Out]]".
** Probably the most emotional song in the movie is [[ Nobody Else But You]].
* The ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' sequels not only prove to be decent (except for ''Return of Jafar''[='=]s OffModel LimitedAnimation), but they have excellent {{Villain Song}}s. ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'' has [[ "You're Only Second Rate"]]. ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves'' has [[ "Welcome to the Forty Thieves"]] and its DarkReprise [[ "Are You In or Out?"]]
* ''Disney/{{Bolt}}'', and in particular "[[ Rescuing Penny]]", which manages to be sad and awesome at the same time.
** [[ Barking at the Moon]], in combination with the road-trip montage that it accompanies, is Crowning Music of Heartwarming.
** "[[ I Thought I Lost You]]", proved that after 30+ years, John Travolta still had great pipes.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'' may be little known, but it has plenty of awesome music.
** "Vacuum Rescues the Group", which is just plain epic, with all the fanfare and so on. Also, there was a totally ''Zelda''-style "Item Get" when Toaster gets the battery.
** "[[ Worthless]]", which doubles as a TearJerker for the cars being dragged to their final fates in the crusher.
** Also from the score, we have [[ the Finale]] and [[ the End Title]].
** 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, [[HeroicSacrifice 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.
** "[[ It's a B Movie]]" is delightfully creepy.
** "[[ Cutting Edge]]" is very catchy, even as it gets more ironic with each passing year.
* The [[ Transformation sequence]] in ''Disney/BrotherBear'' 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.
* Academy Award nominee [[ "Baby Mine"]] from the movie ''Dumbo''.
* Kronk's improvised theme song when he's trying to get rid of Kuzco in ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''.
** Amusingly, Kronk's voice actor Patrick Warburton [[ThrowItIn genuinely improvised his humming during recording]], and was then ordered by Disney lawyers to officially sign over the rights to the "song".
** Sting. Academy Award nominee [[ My Funny Friend And Me]] is a combination Crowning Music of Awesome and Crowning Music of Heartwarming.
** And for the best VillainSong to never make it into the final film, have [[ Snuff Out the Light]], courtesy of Eartha Kitt, Showmanship Goddess.
* Say what you will about the ''Beauty and the Beast'' sequel ''The Enchanted Christmas'', but some of the songs in that are quite fantastic. First, there's [[ Stories]], then the main theme if the film [[ As Long As There's Christmas]] and the VillainSong [[ Don't Fall In Love]], the last one is sung by Creator/TimCurry no less.
* "[[ Junkyard Society Rag]]" from ''Disney/LadyAndTheTrampIIScampsAdventure'', just because it's period-appropriate and Disney doesn't usually deal in ragtime.
* Whatever your opinion on the raging storms of terrifying imagery, Disney's ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' and ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' contain some of the most utterly awesome music ever written. Music/IgorStravinsky's ''[[ Rite]] [[ of]] [[ Spring]]'', Music/JohannSebastianBach's [[ Toccata and Fugue in D Minor]], Modest Mussorgsky's ''[[ Night on]] [[ Bald Mountain]]'', Paul Dukas' ''[[ The Sorcerer's Apprentice]]'', Music/LudwigVanBeethoven's [[ Fifth Symphony]], Music/DmitriShostakovich's [[ Piano Concerto No. 2]], Music/GeorgeGershwin's ''[[ Rhapsody in Blue]]''... There's a ''reason'' these old pieces are still played.
** 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]]''.
* ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' is one of the more fondly remembered films from Disney's 1980s dark age, and the songs are one reason for this.
%%** [[ "Let me be good to you!"]]
%%** [[ "Oh Ratigan! Oh Ratigan! The wooorld's great-est criiiiminal miiiind!"]]
%%** [[ "Goodbye So Soon!"]]
* Regardless of whether the lyrics make any sense, [[ "He Mele No Lilo"]] from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' is wonderfully catchy, with exactly the right feel to it.
** [[ Wynonna Judd's cover of]] [[Music/ElvisPresley "Burning Love"]] is a fantastic piece of music set to a terrific ending montage.
** [[ "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride"]] is another great one.
%%** [[ "Aloha `Oe"]].
* ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' has [[ "Little Wonders"]], written by Music/RobThomas from Music/MatchboxTwenty!
** [[ "Another Believer".]] Rufus at his most whimsical.
%%** [[ "The Future Has Arrived"]].
* Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the song [[ I'll Make a Man Out of You]]. It's one of the most ''[[SweetPollyOliver ironic]]'' musical numbers Disney ever made. Plus the lyrics are some of the most stirring and poetic ways to basically say [[Film/{{Rocky}} "I want you to eat lightning, and crap thunder!"]].
** The English version is notable for the fact that it made Donny Osmond, who performs the song, far more awesome than he could ever hope to be on his own.
** What makes "I'll Make a Man Out of You" more awesome? When it's sung by [[ Jackie Chan in Cantonese!]] Or [[ in Mandarin.]]
** Then we have [[ this Metal Cover]] from Music/JonathanYoung, making it even more awesome. Also gets away by name-dropping Comics/{{Batman}} in the lyrics.
** "I'll Make a Man Out of You" manages to become even ''more'' awesome [[ in this video]]. Admittedly, Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann makes anything awesome, but ''damn''.
** Also "[[ Short Hair]]", which plays when Mulan [[ImportantHaircut cuts her hair]] and suits up for war.
** 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.
%%** "[[ True to Your Heart]]".
%%** "[[ Reflections]]".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': "What's this? What's this?" One of the greatest Disney songs ever, that's what it is!
** There is probably no more awesome way to sing yourself out of a HeroicBSOD than "Poor Jack".
** "Jack's Lament", "Sally's Song", "Making Christmas", "Jack's Obsession", "Finale Reprise" (especially Jack and Sally's duet), "Jack And Sally Montage", "Christmas Eve Montage", To The Rescue,, screw it, the whole soundtrack is JustForFun/MadeOfWin! Screw ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Music/DannyElfman is a genius!
%%The following has been commented out for being a Administrivia/ZeroContextExample. Do not uncomment it without explaining why these songs belong on this page, and remember, Administrivia/WeblinksAreNotExamples - Youtube videos are taken down all the time.
%%** "Oogie Boogie's Song", "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" and of course "This is Halloween".
* ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' holds its ground rather well against the [[Theatre/{{Oliver}} other musical adaptation]] of ''Literature/OliverTwist'' in the song department.
** [[ "Why Should I Worry"]] was one of the most catchy and kickass songs ever to come out from Disney. (Bonus points for being sung by none other than Music/BillyJoel!)
** [[ "Perfect Isn't Easy"]], sung by none other than Music/BetteMidler.
** [[ "Once Upon a Time In New York City"]] is just plain awesome, and is sung by Huey Lewis (warning: the scene that accompanies this song is a TearJerker).
** [[ "Good Company"]] is heartwarming and adorable.
** [[ "Streets of Gold"]] is incredibly infectious and hard to resist dancing to.
* ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians''' [[ "Cruella de Vil"]].
* ''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 UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, 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.
* ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'s'' Academy Award-winning [[ When You Wish Upon A Star]], which became the signature tune for Disney's animated division. Two other classic examples from the same film would have to be [[ Give A Little Whistle]] and [[ Hi Diddle Dee Dee (An Actor's Life for Me)]].
** [[ I've Got No Strings]] is a particularly easily transmissible {{Earworm}}.
* The music from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Planes}}'' "Take Flight" [[ teaser]].
** El Chupacabra's "Love Machine" song.
** Mark Holman's [[ "Nothing Can Stop Me Now"]] that plays in the film's opening.
** Franz originally had a cute EarWorm-y polka song, [[ "Ein Crop Duster Can Race"]]. Looks like it was cut for time, which is a pity.
* [[ Someone's Waiting For You]], an Academy Award nominee from the film, ''Disney/TheRescuers''. Bonus points for also doubling as a TearJerker.
** Also, [[ Tomorrow is another day.]]
** [[ "The Journey,"]] which played over the opening credits, is hauntingly beautiful and sadly overlooked.
* The music from ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'' is pretty cool; for example, the music for [[ when Cody is flying on Marahute's back]], and the [[ music in the opening]].
* ''Film/SongOfTheSouth'' may have fallen victim to UnfortunateImplications but that doesn't mean its songs aren't still catchy. The Academy Award-winning [[ Zip-a-dee-doo-dah song]] is well known even to people who have no idea where it's from.
* [[ "When Can I See You Again?"]] from ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. The [[ End Credits]] make this song even better!
** [[ S-U-G-AR, jump into your race car, it's a SUGAR RUSH! SUGAR RUSH!]]
* ''Disney/PeterPan'' had its fair share.
** [[ "Second Star to the Right",]] the opening song, introduces us to Peter's {{Leitmotif}}, as well as some truly beautiful lyrics and melodies that perfectly capture Neverland.
** [[ "You Can Fly"]] is adventurous and joyful, much like the film itself. Tellingly, it's the only song to get a full reprise.
** [[ The Crocodile's]] {{Leitmotif}}, which had lyrics as a CutSong, "Never Smile At a Crocodile". Even without the ticking, it sounds like you'd expect a crocodile to sound.
* ''WesternAnimation/MickeysTwiceUponAChristmas'' has the upbeat [[ "Make Me Look Good"]] and the beautiful credits theme [[ "Share This Day"]].
* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''[='=]s "Try Everything" by Music/{{Shakira}} serves a strong message to set the tone for the movie in accompaniment to the SceneryPorn as Judy rides into town.
* [[ The overture]] for ''Film/PetesDragon1977'' is just irresistible to listen to.
* The ''Film/{{Tron}}'' franchise, a TropeCodifier for CyberpunkIsTechno. Start off with Music/WendyCarlos, who put electronic music on the map in the first place. [[ Follow it up]] with [[Music/DaftPunk a pair of eccentric, Grammy-winning Frenchmen]] for the [[Film/TronLegacy sequel]], and an entire remix album ([[ TRON Legacy R3CONF1GUR3D]]) of top EDM artists with their own take on the soundtrack. Mix in Joseph Trapanese's [[ ominous]] [[ score]] for the [[WesternAnimation/TronUprising animated series]]. Add a [[ few]] [[ shots]] [[ of]] Music/{{Journey}} to wash it all down. And since this this franchise also has SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames, we get a [[ wonderful score]] for ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'' and [[ the love letter to Wendy Carlos]] with the soundtrack to ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh''.
* [[ This]] triumphant orchestral remix of "Heigh-Ho", used for the 1993 re-issue trailer for ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''.

[[AC:Disney TV]]
* The [[ Theme Song]] for ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''. There's also another short piece of music used in a chase sequence that's really awesome. But speaking of that theme [[ The Swedish version is pretty awesome too]].
** [[ Feel the fizz of Coo-Coo Cola!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''[='=]s [[ theme song]] does a first-rate job of conveying just how awesome the title character can be [[LetsGetDangerous when the situation requires it]]. And it's [[EarWorm so catchy]], even villainous characters get it stuck in their head in-universe!
%%** From the same show there's [[ this song,]] which is definitely one of Darkwing's best moments.
%%And without a title, there's absolutely no way to find a replacement if the video goes down. Do not uncomment this example without adding a title and giving enough context that a replacement can be found if the video is removed.
* The intro theme to [[ D-TV]] (which was a series of music videos using footage from Disney shorts and movies made for Creator/DisneyChannel back in the day). Does the song scream [[TheEighties 1980's]]? Yeah. Is it still awesome? '''Yeah.'''
* [[ What do to? Just grab on to some]] ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''! [[EarWorm Woo-hoo!]]
** 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]].
* The opening music for ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'' is a perfect fit for what can best be described as a kid-friendly homage to 70's cop shows.
* The [[ opening theme]] to ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. Especially with the [[ Keith David voiceover]]. Too bad that was just about the only piece of music used (admittedly they managed to make several different really cool versions).
* We're the [[ Goof Troop]], and we always stick together!
* The ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' generally has a musical number every few episodes, usually a new spin on a classic Disney tune, including the single greatest rendition of [[ "Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?"]] ever made.
-->'''Big Bad Wolf Daddy:''' "I love to bring down the house!"
** Also, their take on "[[ Grim Grinning Ghosts]]".
** [[ "It's Our House Now"]] is also pretty good. Interestingly, it's undergone a bit of MemeticMutation with Website/YouTube users adding other villains to the song.
** Ludwig von Drake explains [[ where everyone sits]]. It's undergone a fad similar to "It's Our House Now" where Website/YouTube users add other characters to the song.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''. Best [[ theme song]] ever. And it only got better when TheMovie [[ remixed it]].
** Drakken's VillainSong [[ Lather, Rinse And Obey]]. BEST RAP EVER!
** And from the [[ same episode]], "[[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Naked Mole Rap]]"!
** [[ "Could It Be"]], especially [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend in context]].
** [[ "Say The Word".]]
* [[ Aloha, E Komo Mai]], the theme of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries''.
* [[ Oh What A Merry Christmas Day]] from ''Disney/MickeysChristmasCarol''. A truly heartwarming tune to both open and finish the special on a high note. It is so awesome that WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd remixed it into his theme tune for the ''Angry Nerd Christmas Carol'', which is also awesome.
* The ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' theme song, a true EarWorm. "PEPPER ANN, SHE'S LIKE ONE [[ IN A MILLION!]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' [[ theme song]].
%%* 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.

* As long as we're on WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon themes... [[ Spin it!]]
** The extended has ''drum and flute solos,'' making the already awesome song even better.
** The theme to WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon block ''[[ itself]]''. Or even the [[ extended]] and [[ closing]] versions.
* The awesome, sports anthem-esque intro from the underloved ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks'' cartoon. [[ Let's hear it for the Mighty Ducks!]]
* [[ the theme for The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh]]. People can hate the original Winnie the Pooh theme from the movies and still find this song awesome.
* The [[ theme song]] for ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders''. Bonus points for being sung by Creator/WayneBrady.
* [[ Hakuna Matata! Timon]] [[WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa And Pumbaa]]. The original version earned an Academy Award nomination.
* [[ Five hours of summer, once a week!]] Creator/OneSaturdayMorning!
* [[ Yip-a-dit-a-dit-doo,]] ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder!''
* Both the [[ opening]] and [[ ending]] themes of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil''.

* AwesomeMusic/KingdomHearts
* ''VideoGame/TheNightmareBeforeChristmasOogiesRevenge'' is chock full of these. Special mention goes to [[ CasinoCrash,]] a great remix of "[[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas The]] [[VillainSong Oogie Boogie Song]]". It's also a duet between Jack and Oogie.
** [[ This town has changed my boy, since you've been]] [[VillainSong away]].
* ''VideoGame/DuckTales'' brings us to the Moon in [[ an awesome way]]. The Remastered remake also has a number of amazing songs, such as [[ the final battle]] and [[ escaping Mount Vesuvius]].
* ''VideoGame/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' has us storming Fat Cat's Factory to a [[ tune]] that ranks right up there with VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} storming a [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 few]] [[VideoGame/MegaMan3 Dr. Wily]] castles. The sequel's [[ own version]] is just as good.
* ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution: Disney Mix'' contains [[ a certain remix of "It's a Small World"]], turning what's largely considered one of the most annoying songs in theme park history into a catchy, techno-inspired song. ''Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Grooves'' [[ makes lightning strike twice]] with another "It's a Small World" remix. This time incorporating the iconic lyrics, covered by Alison Wade.

* [[Ride/CarouselOfProgress There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow,]] [[ shining at the end of every day...]] One of the most [[TheFutureWillBeBetter positive and optimistic songs regarding the future]] ever written, the Sherman brothers apparently regarded this anthem as a personal ode to Walt. The power of this song is such that it frequently appears in unexpected places. [[ Here it is]] on the ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'' soundtrack and [[ here]] is a cover by Music/TheyMightBeGiants which can be found on the ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' soundtrack.
* [[ The Main Street Electrical Parade]] is this for many people. From the vocoder used on the voice at the beginning, to Baroque Hoedown playing throughout, which gets remixed to different songs as the parade progresses. Each park even has [[ their own set of remixes that play]].
