If I had to describe Disney songs in one word it would be “Magical”. No matter how many years have passed, these songs were meant to last forever. These songs transmit emotions, illusions, love and nice memories to everyone. Since I can’t go a month without listening one of these songs, below I listed My top 6 – the Greatest Disney Songs Of All Time, enjoy it!
1. Beauty And The Beast – Celine Dion & Peabo Bryson
Did you know that this was the second version of this song? But one way or another it resulted better than the original version singed by Angela Lansbury back in the 90’s! Celine Dion & Peabo Bryson’s version was released in 1991. Seems incredible that no matter how many times you have listened to this song and it still feels how if it was the first time that I’ve ever listened the Beauty and the Beast.
2. A Whole New World – Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle (Aladdin)
Who dares to forget the moment were Aladdin and Jasmine are discovering a new world while riding on Aladdin’s magic carpet? this was simple magical! It still makes my eyes sparkle! This version also wasn’t the first one ever made but it resulted so so good, that in 1993 Disney staff decided to included it as a part of Aladdin’s Theme.
3. Part of Your World – Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid)
Although this song did not receive a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, everyone who loves the Little Mermaid have a space in their hearts for this song. “Part of your world” expresses the desires of Ariel of becoming human.
