OK, I left here it is, the top 10. I know what you’re thinking, “I don’t even want to read this list because what kind of crazy person doesn’t have I’ll make a Man Out of You in the top 10?!?!” Listen. It was tough. I’m sorry. What can I say, Disney has got a lot of good music?
If you missed Part 1 and wanna catch up, you can do so here, otherwise, let’s get on with the show!
I admit, I might be SLIGHTLY biased because I’m obsessed with tangled, but I mean, this song is all about dreams! And living them out! I’ve got a dream…to finish this race and not die. Plus it’s catchy and will get you moving, guaranteed.
Again, this song is all about motivation. People think you’re nothing? But are you nothing? NO!
IT’S THE GUMMI BEARS!!!! This song will have you bouncing here and there and everywhere along the race course!
Granted a song called “Almost there” might not be the best thing to here at mile 2 of a half marathon, but it’s about working for hard for something and it’s time to get it, “nothing is going to stop you because you’re almost there!”
Hercules, one of the more underrated Disney animated films, but dammit it has some good music. We’re all stars of our own races. Don’t lose hope when you’re forlorn…
What? What song is this? Granted not a Disney song in the traditional sense, but everyone forgets about the singles Disney plays during the credits and include on the soundtracks, but this is one from Mulan. I mean, ok, I am a sucker for a 90s boy band with an added Stevie Wonder bonus, but just listen, I dare you to question this choice!
I can’t explain it, all I know is I’m humming this song the entire time back to the hotel and when it pops on my running play list, I get a little more pep in my step.
Yes, this is my second song from Tangled, but I mentioned I’m obsessed with it right? And that Disney has singles they play during the credits? Well yeah. This song. There are no words for how perfect it is to run to!
Yes, this too is the 2nd song on my list from a movie…The Princess and the Frog specifically. Can I help it the movie has amazingly motivational catchy songs? The song is called Dig a Little Deeper, ’nuff said.
Is this the obvious choice for the #1 song? Yes. But there’s a reason it’s the obvious choice, IT’S GO THE DISTANCE! Don’t you judge me! I’ve run and had this song come up when I needed it and dammit it works!
When I created this list, I had not seen Zootopia yet. Saw it. Loved it. Love the song. It belongs somewhere on this list. The End.
