Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Tunes on Tuesday: Disney Princess Top 5


Tunes on Tuesday: Disney Princess Top 5

We all knew this topic was bound to come up sooner or later and here it is! I gave myself the really difficult task of ranking just my top five favorites. When picking the songs I went with ones that are actually sung by the princesses too, or else I could have gone way off on a tangent and included songs like "I'll Make A Man Out of You" or I could have gone the way of the honorary princess but I stuck to being really literal.  Here are my picks for the top 5 best of the best Disney Princess songs ...

5. Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas
I have mentioned somewhere before that when Pocahontas came out it had a huge effect on my childhood and the types of games my cousins and I used to play. Of course the music would have just as big of an effect too! I can remember playing this song over and over again once I got the CD. I'm actually pretty sure I still have this in CD form.

4. A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella
While Cinderella was always one of the really overrated princesses for me I have always really loved this song. I think that her voice is so rich and smooth. I also love the sentiment of this song but some of my dreams I really hope aren't wishes my heart makes ... at least not the dreams I dream when I'm sleeping. My daydreams yes please!

3. That's How You Know from Enchanted
While Enchanted had this huge hurrah when it first came out since then it's sorta been forgotten. Well I haven't forgotten about it! A fun romp through New York it has some really catchy tunes including this favorite of mine. I like to play this one every now and then when Kevin is around to give him a little reminder ... not sure if he ever gets the hint but here's hoping right!

2. A Whole New World from Aladdin
Aladdin is probably one of the few movies where I like most if not all of the songs and "A Whole New World" is no exception. I love the ups and downs musically and literally of this song. There isn't much else I can say except it's just a beautiful song and I really really enjoy it!

1. Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty
Like we all didn't know that this one would be number one?! Right? Love this song. It's always been one of my absolute favorite Disney songs. It's the perfect blend between Aurora, Prince Phillip and the background chorus that the earlier Disney films are really known for. I also love the entire scene of this song, the imagery of them dancing through the forest and by the water is just beautiful. I just love everything Sleeping Beauty!

I'm sure there are some that you thought I should have put on the list ... what are your favorites?



  1. So happy to see you included Enchanted!! One of the greatest Disney movies and it has totally faded into the background.

  2. I havent seen enchanted. but the others I have. My fave song out of these would be the one from aladdin although it's not my fave disney movie by far.

  3. Enchanted is great! I've heard Disney let it fall into oblivion because it would be pricey to keep paying Amy Adams for her image vs a cartoon they own for life - that's allegedly why they didn't keep her in the parks either. It's a shame.
