3. You Can Fly, Peter Pan (1952)
This one holds the distinction of being the rare Disney song that isn’t being sung by an actual character in the movie (aside from title songs introducing the movie or when Phil Collins does essentially the whole soundtrack like in Tarzan or Brother Bear). More importantly, this song is just quintessential Disney magic. The opening “wooo wooo woooooo” still gives me chills every time I hear it and is just the embodiment of pure happiness and childlike wonder. Incidentally, my go-to “happy thought” is the very song that occurs once the Darling children realize their own happy thoughts.
3. Be Prepared, The Lion King (1994)
Scar wins in villains songs. WINS. This type of brainwashing takes one heck of a bad cat. Voiced by Jeremy Irons, the whole song has a creepy bad aura about it, but it is so well done that you almost fall in line with the rest of the hyenas. If you haven't seen The Lion King: The Musical, I'll tell you with absolute certainty that it is worth the ticket just for this number.
