* ''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]] 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'':
** The Music/AaronCopland-style [[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]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOYKQSMh4Ss Colette Shows Him le Ropes]] and its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5igpBHE0oiY awesome, slap bass-tastic reprise!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_hdmt4vpBo Le Festin]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We3ht-BskBk The Main Theme]].
* ''Cars 2'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XAjcgHuCN4 It's Finn McMissile!]].
* ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ5Kyl4r3R4 "Bundle of Joy"]], played during Riley's birth and the subsequent introduction of Joy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RKWV-fitCA "Tears of Joy"]], played during [[spoiler:Joy's breakdown in the memory dump.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1efMLeX45E "Rainbow Flyer"]], used when [[spoiler:Joy and Bing Bong attempt to escape the memory dump in their wagon rocket.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n11PI7aVGqg "We Can Still Stop Her"]], a tense song played when [[spoiler:Riley is running away from home, while Joy tries to reach the HQ in time to stop her.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tQB6AmeSUQ "Joy Turns to Sadness / A Growing Personality"]], which is used during [[spoiler:Riley's breakdown to her parents, Joy learning that being sad is an important part of living, and Riley's console getting an upgrade as she gets older.]]
** The end theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qW5Y7wthdQ "The Joy of Credits"]], which is essentially eight minutes of orchestra/light jazz music.
** And last but not least, there's the [[http://youtu.be/AHArCl_fPm0 TripleDent Gum jingle]]. At 13 seconds long it's probably the shortest piece of music from the film. What's awesome about it? The fact it's an ''intentional'' EarWorm written specially for the film, which is no easy feat! [[spoiler: No wonder Anger gets so mad when he hears it.]]

* From ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB7JT4t-_E0 Beyond the Sea]] by Robbie Williams.
* From ''The Incredibles'':
** The Anvil Chorus (from Verdi's ''Il trovatore'') in the "every door, button and explosion in the movie" DVD EasterEgg fits perfectly, in both time and mood.
** The [[http://youtu.be/_8CDLuZzLgg teaser trailer]] used a remixed version of John Barry's [[http://youtu.be/N8XNBpIkQpU instrumental theme]] for the Film/JamesBond film ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService''. The main theme for the Incredibles seems to be based off this great tune.
