Hello everybody! I got to thinking about the soundtracks to the DP films the other день and decided to write up a Список of my favorites. Музыка 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 Избранное DP soundtracks Список and Избранное DP Фильмы list, although they aren't exactly the same.
6th on Избранное DP films list
With a five Космос difference in comparison to my Избранное 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 Любовь one of the scores. It certainly doesn't help that I'm not a Фан of Mandy Moore's Пение voice. Overall, this soundtrack doesn't do much for the film in my opinion.
Favorite song: Mother Knows Best (reprise)
Избранное score: Kingdom Dance
10. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
8th on Избранное 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 еще Последнее 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 день My Prince Will Come
Избранное score: I've Been Tricked
11th on Избранное 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 еще Последнее 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 Назад two soundtracks.
Favorite song: So This Is Love
Избранное score: Where Did I Put That Thing?
10th on Избранное DP films list
Aladdin has a plethora of really fun and enjoyable songs, but the score is еще mediocre. I don't find it particularly memorable. I'm also not a huge Фан 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 в общем и целом, общая soundtrack much.
Favorite song: Prince Ali
Избранное score: Marketplace
9th on Избранное 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 Избранное songs of any DP movie, and Judy Kuhn is phenomenal as Pocahontas, but the score is еще lacking. It also has a couple songs that I'm really not a Фан of, like Mine, Mine, Mine.
Favorite song: Цвета of the Wind
Избранное score: Farewell
6. The Little Mermaid
4th on Избранное 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 избранное of the Дисней Princesses, which drags this soundtrack down. This soundtrack also doesn't give me chills the way my вверх five do.
Favorite song: Part of Your World
Избранное score: Tour of the Kingdom
5th on Избранное DP films list
So, funny story: before I started Письмо this Статья I had a tentative Список in which Mulan was ranked seventh. As I wrote this Статья 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 Избранное 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
Избранное score: Mulan's Decision (synthesizer version) aka Short Hair
4. Sleeping Beauty
3rd on Избранное 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 или if it's because the Музыка 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 Пение voice of all the Дисней Princesses. She sounds like an angel. I Любовь her voice еще than words can describe.
Favorite song: I Wonder
Избранное score: A Cottage in the Woods
3. Beauty and the Beast
1st on Избранное 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 Любовь this soundtrack almost as much as I Любовь the film itself, but there are a couple other DP soundtracks that I Любовь even more.
Favorite song: Belle (reprise)
Избранное score: Prologue
2. The Princess and the Frog
2nd on Избранное DP films list
This soundtrack is incredibly underrated. I Любовь jazz, so the Музыка 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 Музыка in this movie. It's so fun and so amazing!
Favorite song: Almost There
Избранное score: This Is Gonna Be Good
7th on Избранное DP films list
It's kind of funny that both my least Избранное and Избранное soundtracks have the biggest differences from their respective positions on my Избранное DP films list, but there Ты have it. Brave may not be the best Дисней 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 Пение its songs at the вверх 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 Музыка in this movie has the capacity to give me chills. Do yourself a favor and go listen to this soundtrack, Ты might be surprised how awesome it is.
Favorite song: Noble Maiden Fair (A Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal)
Избранное score: I can't pick one so here are my three избранное - Fate and Destiny, I Am Merida, and We've Both Changed
