There’s something that people in love or not in love tenderly respond to – Love songs. And when they are sung by ridiculously cute Disney characters, one is just washed over by that ineffable feeling of affection. This Buzzle article features top 10 Disney love songs that will inspire you to plunge headlong into the vast ocean of love.
Did You Know?
Popular Disney lovers Rapunzel and Eugene have put in an appearance at Elsa’s coronation in Frozen.
Disney movies have the ability to edify its viewers in the matters of the heart. While Cinderella’s story taught us that course of true love never runs smooth; Anna in Frozen imparted us all an important lesson – love at haste and expect heartbreak.
Love is a leitmotif in all Disney movies – be that of amorous nature or the one that is realized and felt unconditionally for one’s family. Love has the power to vanquish all difficulties and affords great surprises in return (we are sure Belle can’t thank her stars enough when the beast turned into a hunky prince).
Disney also boasts of some of the most emotionally educating songs, which are convincing enough to make your heart melt. Hold your hearts, ladies and gentlemen, as we present to you the top 10 love songs from Disney.
1. I See The Light
Movie: Tangled (2010)
“And at last I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you.”
This song is really special. It will kind of make you teary-eyed after you see those naiveté-filled eyes of Rapunzel grow wider as her dream of seeing ‘floating lights’ is fulfilled.
With a fetching company of small-time thief, Flynn rider, on a dinghy in the middle of hundreds of lanterns, Rapunzel is alluding about her recently developed feelings for him.
2. “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”
Movie: The Lion King (1994)
“There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you.”
This song composed by Elton John has an epiphanic tone to it since childhood friends Simba and Nala discover each other’s romantic feelings.
When two people feel so tender about each other, dialogue almost becomes inept, and such occasion greatly deserves a song replete with affection.
3. “So This Is Love”
Movie: Cinderella (1950)
“My heart has wings, hmm
And I can fly
I’ll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle
That I’ve been dreaming of”
Every girl is besotted with the idea of meeting her man of dreams – her Prince Charming and this song is a perfect manifestation of it.
Some may find this song hopelessly romantic but when you see a beautiful Cinderella waltzing with the Prince Charming, you are instantly imbued with a tingling feeling of tenderness.
4. “A Whole New World”
Movie: Aladdin (1992)
“I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?”
Visualize this – you are on a flying carpet (which is already giving you a funny feeling in your stomach) with a likable guy (double funny feeling) exploring prospects of discovering a new world together, how exhilaratingly romantic.
You so want to have that romantic ride on the magical carpet like Jasmine and Aladdin.
5. “Tale As Old As Time”
Movie: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
“Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast.”
This pop ballad is sung by two famous singers Angela Lansbury and Celine Dion. However, the movie has used the one crooned by Lansbury. It’s super cute to see the shy beast dancing with his love, Belle, with Mrs. Potts singing in the background.
We love the Beast’s snazzy ponytail and Belle’s ruffle-detailed gold gown. The most unlikely yet romantic couple, we say.
6. “Love is an Open Door”
Movie: Frozen (2013)
“To the pain of the past
We don’t have to feel it any more
Love is an open door
Love is an open door
Life can be so much more”
While the words convey romance, the intentions of the part sung by Hans (a man with a false facade) subtly insinuates his true nature, which is dishonest and untrustworthy.
But the song will definitely warm your heart when you see the simpleton Anna talk about her loneliness and pledge her love to Hans.
7. “I Won’t Say (I’m in Love)”
Movie: Hercules (1997)
“Who d’you think you’re kiddin’?
He’s the earth and heaven to ya
Try to keep it hidden
Honey, we can see right through ya
Girl, you can’t conceal it
We know how you feel
And who you’re thinking of”
Once bitten twice shy; it’s obvious when you are left unceremoniously by an ingrate lover, you naturally become pessimistic.
But that doesn’t mean you shrug off some genuine person’s devotion and this is exactly what this song teaches us. In this love-themed song, Meg is being persuaded by the Muses to give Hercules a chance at love.
8. “Bella Notte” Movie: Lady and the Tramp (1955)
“Oh, this is the night, it’s a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte.”
This romantic number has a sweet and gentle Italian hint to it. It’s just lovely to see the restaurateur sing for our canine lovers – the street-smart mutt and the stately cocker spaniel Lady.
A romantic candlelight dinner with just one plate of spaghetti to share, it can’t get more romantic than this.
9. “Someday My Prince Will Come”
Movie: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
“Some day my prince will come
Some day we’ll meet again
And away to his castle we’ll go
To be happy forever I know”
Now now, this is something that every girl in the world dreams of (it’s more like a customary fanciful idea that every girl is conditioned to) – a horse-ridden handsome Prince who will whisk her away to his castle.
Snow White is no different; she sings this song in her tickled pink cheeks to the dwarfs, recollecting her romantic encounter with the Prince.
10. True Love’s Kiss
Movie: Enchanted (2007)
“I’ve been dreaming of a true love’s kiss
And a prince, I’m hoping, comes with this
That’s what brings ever-aftering so happy
That’s the reason we need lips so much
For lips are the only things that touch
So to spend a life of endless bliss
Just find who you love through true love’s kiss.”
Another popular love concept by Disney, when you kiss someone you truly love it is powerful to do any of the three things, one – break the evil curse, two – transmute someone ugly to beautiful or three – awaken someone from a magically-induced unconscious state. Amy Adam’s love-themed rendition is dedicated to all die-hard romantics.
We are already kind of experiencing fluttering butterflies in the stomach. So if you want to make any reeling addition to this list, feel free to drop in.
