Hello everybody! I got to thinking about the soundtracks to the DP films the other día and decided to write up a lista of my favorites. música has been a big part of my life, and as a result I have a big soft spot for the DP scores and songs. I find that how good a movie's soundtrack is often has a bigger influence on how much I like the film than it would for most other people. There are definitely some noticeable similarities between my favorito! DP soundtracks lista and favorito! DP cine list, although they aren't exactly the same.
6th on favorito! DP films list
With a five el espacio difference in comparison to my favorito! DP films list, Tangled is one of the few films that doesn't follow my trend of enjoying films with good soundtracks. While it's a really fun movie, the soundtrack just doesn't stand out to me. I only really like two of the songs, and I only amor one of the scores. It certainly doesn't help that I'm not a fan of Mandy Moore's canto voice. Overall, this soundtrack doesn't do much for the film in my opinion.
Favorite song: Mother Knows Best (reprise)
favorito! score: Kingdom Dance
10. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
8th on favorito! DP films list
Unfortunately, I find this soundtrack to be very dated, and the fact that the sound isn't as crisp and clear as the más reciente soundtracks doesn't do it any favors. I do enjoy Adriana Caselotti's voice, but I prefer some of the other princesses' voices, and while the dwarfs are funny they aren't the best singers. This soundtrack was wonderful in its time, but its time has now passed.
Favorite song: Some día My Prince Will Come
favorito! score: I've Been Tricked
11th on favorito! DP films list
Like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this soundtrack is a little dated in my eyes. It has held up better, but it's still not as good as some of the más reciente soundtracks. I adore Ilene Woods' voice, but the mice are horrendous and really drag this soundtrack down. I enjoy almost all of the songs though, so that boosts it a little higher than the anterior two soundtracks.
Favorite song: So This Is Love
favorito! score: Where Did I Put That Thing?
10th on favorito! DP films list
Aladdin has a plethora of really fun and enjoyable songs, but the score is más mediocre. I don't find it particularly memorable. I'm also not a huge fan of Lea Salonga's voice (I think she's much better in Mulan), but she only has one song so it doesn't affect my opinion of the en general, general soundtrack much.
Favorite song: Prince Ali
favorito! score: Marketplace
9th on favorito! DP films list
Pocahontas is often lauded for having an underappreciated soundtrack, and while I agree I just prefer the other DP soundtracks more. It has some of my favorito! songs of any DP movie, and Judy Kuhn is phenomenal as Pocahontas, but the score is más lacking. It also has a couple songs that I'm really not a fan of, like Mine, Mine, Mine.
Favorite song: colores of the Wind
favorito! score: Farewell
6. The Little Mermaid
4th on favorito! DP films list
This soundtrack definitely deserved the Oscars it won. It's pretty amazing - the songs are fun, the soundtrack fits very well with the tone of the movie, and Jodi Benson plays Ariel quite nicely. Unfortunately, her voice is one of my least favoritos of the disney Princesses, which drags this soundtrack down. This soundtrack also doesn't give me chills the way my parte superior, arriba five do.
Favorite song: Part of Your World
favorito! score: Tour of the Kingdom
5th on favorito! DP films list
So, funny story: before I started escritura this articulo I had a tentative lista in which Mulan was ranked seventh. As I wrote this articulo I listened to parts of each soundtrack in order to refresh my memory. When I started listening to Mulan's, I was floored. I had completely forgotten how utterly amazing this soundtrack is. It is so beautiful with its Chinese influences, and all of the songs are enjoyable. Lea Salonga may not have my favorito! voice, but she does well as Mulan, and honestly the rest of the soundtrack is so good that I don't really care. This soundtrack gives me chills.
Favorite song: I'll Make a Man Out of You
favorito! score: Mulan's Decision (synthesizer version) aka Short Hair
4. Sleeping Beauty
3rd on favorito! DP films list
Although this soundtrack is old, it has a sense of timelessness that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella don't. I'm not sure if that's because I loved this movie as a kid o if it's because the música as adapted from Tchaikovsky's beautiful ballet, but regardless I can listen to this soundtrack over and over again and never get tired of it. Not to mention that Mary Costa has the most beautiful canto voice of all the disney Princesses. She sounds like an angel. I amor her voice más than words can describe.
Favorite song: I Wonder
favorito! score: A Cottage in the Woods
3. Beauty and the Beast
1st on favorito! DP films list
Simply put, I adore this soundtrack. The songs are all amazing, the singers are phenomenal, and the score can give me chills and even make me cry. I amor this soundtrack almost as much as I amor the film itself, but there are a couple other DP soundtracks that I amor even more.
Favorite song: Belle (reprise)
favorito! score: Prologue
2. The Princess and the Frog
2nd on favorito! DP films list
This soundtrack is incredibly underrated. I amor jazz, so the música to this film just makes me want to get up and dance. Every single song in this film is fun, Anika Noni Rose has the most powerful gorgeous voice, and the score adds the perfect touch of enchantment. I can't help but tap my foot along to the música in this movie. It's so fun and so amazing!
Favorite song: Almost There
favorito! score: This Is Gonna Be Good
7th on favorito! DP films list
It's kind of funny that both my least favorito! and favorito! soundtracks have the biggest differences from their respective positions on my favorito! DP films list, but there tu have it. Brave may not be the best disney Princess film, but my god the soundtrack is phenomenal. Granted, I grew up with Scottish and other folk music, so I might be a little biased, but everything about this soundtrack is perfect in my opinion. I could run around canto its songs at the parte superior, arriba of my lungs. I could listen to it on repeat. I will never get tired of this music. Julie Fowlis has such a beautiful, perfect voice for the songs and the score has that wonderful Scottish flavor sprinkled throughout. Nearly every piece of música in this movie has the capacity to give me chills. Do yourself a favor and go listen to this soundtrack, tu might be surprised how awesome it is.
Favorite song: Noble Maiden Fair (A Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal)
favorito! score: I can't pick one so here are my three favoritos - Fate and Destiny, I Am Merida, and We've Both Changed
