Disney villains may be vain and cruel, but they have some of the best songs in their movies. Here are the best of the best.*
7. “Scrooge” from The Muppet Christmas Carol
Scrooge is so grim and mean he can’t even be bothered to sing his own song. He’s the only villain on the list who is so villainous that he gets everyone else to sing about him. Now that’s a villain.
6. “Oogie Boogie’s Song” from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Oogie Boogie is definitely the creepiest villain here and this song proves it. Also Tim Burton is beyond twisted and it’s great.
5. “Savages” from Pocahontas
This song wins the award for Most Tension and Intensity. It also wins Best Message. This shows us what racism and prejudice lead to and what happens when you walk down the path of hatred. We choose the path of love♥
4. “Mother Knows Best” from Tangled
Mother Gothel warns us about everything that could possibly go wrong anytime we want to go outside. Congratulations, Mother Gothel, I’m now a homebody. I’m not going to risk running into ruffians or thugs, or worse…the plague!
3. “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid
This song is so enticing; it gently lures you in and then completely entrances you as the song builds just as Ursula intends. It’s no wonder Ariel signed the scroll. The Jonas Brothers even have an awesome cover of this song.
2. “Be Prepared” from The Lion King
1. “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast
No one’s slick as Gaston, no one’s quick as Gaston, no one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston’s. But most importantly, he uses antlers in all of his decorating. I could keep writing out the lyrics to explain why this is the best villainous Disney song or you can just watch the video.
