The song would eventually appear at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts as part of attractions like Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Ride, Mickey’s Philharmonic Show, World of Color Scene, as well as being combined with “When You Wish Upon a Star” as an introduction to “The Wonderful World of Disney.”
This Disney love song emphasizes exploration and adventure. A great track for children to learn, this will make them feel as if they are on an exciting journey!

I Can’t Live Without You is one of the world’s most iconic songs, written originally in 1982 by Doug James and Michael Bolton and later covered by various artists over time. Many credit it with being at the origins of electronic dance music as it now represents a separate industry altogether.

The beauty of this track lies in its message about having strong bonds with our significant others. Perfect for couples that plan on staying together forever and wanting their relationship to endure, this song will soon become one of your favorites and only costs a couple bucks to download!
Let It Go
Frozen’s hit song, “Let It Go”, remains one of the most renowned Disney tracks ever released and even received an Academy Award nomination.
This song tells the tale of Princess Elsa, who for years has struggled to control and hide her magical ice powers. After accidentally unleashing them during her coronation as queen of Arendelle, Elsa flees into the mountains where she sings this song to finally accept and embrace them.
This song features Idina Menzel as Elsa and is composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez; it was released as the title track to the film and became an international success.
Idina Menzel has performed this song countless times, most recently as part of her live New Year’s Eve show in 2015. Her powerful vocals helped this Disney love song become an international smash hit.
At one point, people were complaining about its earworm-like qualities; more frequently still, people use it in conversational settings when telling others, they need to let something go or acting foolish.
The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid is an iconic fairytale about an inspiring and beautiful mermaid princess who longs to experience life outside of the depths of the sea. Out of curiosity for life outside her underwater environment, she makes a deal with an evil sea witch so she can come ashore and experience life firsthand.
King Triton forbids Ariel from having any relationship with humans; when Ariel rescues and falls for a human prince named Eric, she must choose between her father and her newfound humanity.
As soon as a young mermaid discovers her agreement with the sea which will result in three days as an actual human, she becomes determined to stay with her new lover and fulfill their shared dream. Unfortunately, in order to accomplish her task she may need to sacrifice herself.
The Little Mermaid has long been one of the Disney classics and its soundtrack is no exception. Composed by Alan Menken with Howard Ashman, its original score won multiple awards and can now be purchased as an album. Plus, live-action movie versions will include updated lyrics to classic songs like “Kiss the Girl” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” co-written by Menken with Lin-Manuel Miranda songwriter!
You’ll Be in My Heart
You’ll Be in My Heart is an emotive ballad that speaks of mother-child bond. Composed by Phil Collins for use in the 1999 animated film Tarzan and released as a single, it received several awards and international recognition – peaking at number 21 on Billboard Hot 100 chart and spending 19 consecutive weeks at number one on Adult Contemporary chart.
“Rebel Rebel” won both a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and Academy Award, along with being nominated for Grammy considerations. Even years after its initial release, many Disney fans remain fond of hearing it on official Tarzan soundtracks or Spotify (it currently has over 240 million plays!).
“You’ll Be in My Heart” has been recorded in German, French, Spanish and Italian to allow for international dubbing purposes. Aside from its English version, “You’ll Be in My Heart” was performed live on Disney Channel Korea show Mickey Mouse Club by Korean singer Donghyuck in 2015. Since its original recording it has become very popular and been covered by various artists throughout time.
You’re My Everything
One of the most beloved Disney songs ever written, You’re My Everything is an effortless musical ride from start to finish. Sing along to Ed Wynn and Jimmy Hayes as they perform in this captivating vocal duet! I wasn’t involved with its production; my husband gave it as a present and felt it merited inclusion on this blog; it serves as proof that even small details can have big impacts in today’s age of gimmicky entertainment!
I Can’t Help Falling in Love
Presley deftly treads the line between romantic balladry and overwrought sentimentality on his signature ballad “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” recorded for the soundtrack to Blue Hawaii and played live before his death in 1977.
