Top 7 Disney Villain Songs

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

Because obviously.

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.

*Honorable mention to I Put A Spell On YouLet’s Talk About MeLes Poissons, Marley and Marley, and The Mob Song.

Bucket List

In no particular, here are some things that I need to do before I kick the bucket (which will be never because I’m banking immortality).  Food for thought: anyone who makes any of the following happen wins my eternal love, which is as warm and wonderful as sunshine and unicorns.

Swim With Dolphins
swimming with dolphins - Briana
This one is in particular order.  Swimming with dolphins is the most important thing on this list, by far.  I LOVE DOLPHINS. THEY’RE BEAUTIFUL AND MAJESTIC CREATURES.  But if when I swim with dolphins it will probably be the last thing I do because it’s more than likely that I quit being human, forgot all my worldly responsibilities and join their pod.

See Broadway’s The Lion King
I got to check this off my bucket list a few years when my grandma gave me the best gift I’ve ever received in the form of tickets to see The Lion King.  The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time and I’ve loved it since the first time I saw it and thought Mufasa was sleeping.  When I went to the Sunday matinée of The Lion King, surrounded by small children, shamelessly crying in the lobby, and finally sitting on the aisle as the animals marched down during “The Circle of Life,” it was a dream coming to life and one of my best memories.

Be One Less Lonely Girl
justin-bieber-one-less-lonely-girl-south-africa -Briana
I get it, everyone hates the Biebz and I am super lame for loving him.  Whatever.  The heart wants what it wants and I can’t help it.  At all of his concerts, JBiebz gives flowers to and serenades one lucky fan during “One Less Lonely Girl.”  Yes, I know Justin has been going in a downward spiral the last several months, but I’m pulling for him to make a comeback.  Even with his mishaps and regrettable actions of late, I still love his music (with the except of his recent “Music Monday” releases) and want to go to a concert.  Here’s hoping they’re not still picking tweens and I’m not middle-aged by the time that happens *fingers crossed*

Rap “Ice Ice Baby” In It’s Entirety
lol, I can’t explain this.  Just accept it and move on.

Break A Record
dark knight ride - everyone

I got to check this off my bucket list at Six Flags Great Adventure.  My friends and I went to Six Flags on a less-than-ideal-weather day which worked greatly in our favor.  No one showed up and we waited in almost no lines.  Everything was going splendidly until it started to thunder…  The Dark Knight Coaster was the only thing open since it was an indoor roller coaster.  We went in, befriended the ride attendants and rode the coaster 27 times without getting off.  It was the most anyone had gone on that ride in a row.  That’s what I call a rainy day victory (future band name?).

Get Slimed
slime - Briana
OBVIOUSLY. This shouldn’t need an explanation.  I grew up on ’90s Nickelodeon, I’ve been fantasized about being covered in slime since approximately forever.

Visit Every MLB Park
It’s no secret that I love baseball.  I care more about the Red Sox than some people I know (don’t worry, it’s not you), but I also love baseball in general.  It’s the greatest sport and anyone who says otherwise is wrong.  I would love nothing more than spending a summer on a road trip across America (and Canada) watching a game in all 30 of the MLB ballparks.  I’ve got three down (Fenway, Dodger Stadium and AT&T Park) but there’s still 27 to go…so who needs plans for this summer??

Watch  A Game From The Green Monster
Green Monster
I HAVE ACTUALLY DONE THIS.  Okay, so I didn’t technically have tickets, or sit there or watch the whole game…but I got watch five glorious innings of baseball from the most iconic and recognizable part of Fenway.  Even though I still want to get tickets on the Monster and see a whole game from an actual seat…this still gets to be crossed off the list.

Be A Part Of A Heist
Oceans-Eleven - Briana
I’ve already talked about how much I criminals.  I figure the best way to find one, is to become one.  I need a solid group of people who know what they’re doing and have my back.  Once we we have that, NO ONE ELSE CAN JOIN. You NEVER trust the last guy to join a heist, he is up to no good.  Everyone will wear perfectly fitted leisure suits, everything will go according to plan until the tech guy needs five more minutes to unlock the door/shut down the cameras/turn off the laser sensors/deactivate the alarms/whatever tech guys do but WE DON’T HAVE FIVE MINUTES! So we get creative, improvise, and overcome the obstacles in our way to pull off a perfectly orchestrated heist.  I see no flaws in my plan.

Be On Survivor
survivor - Briana
Maybe I don’t have the physical, mental or emotional strength to successfully make it through the show…yet.  But to that I have two responses: 1. YET. I don’t have to go on Survivor tomorrow.  There’s still time for me to become better equipped for the show.  This stage in my life is all about gaining experiences to help me grow as a person, right? (I’m gonna need a real answer here, I know nothing about life.) 2. People more useless than me have won in the past.  Amber won because she was really pretty and Boston Rob took her to the end.  With my current skill set and life experience (none and none), I’m totally capable of coat tailing to the end.
