Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
Aladdin was one of my favourite Disney movies growing up as a child. I loved the story, I loved the Genie and I absolutely loved the songs. They’re the type of songs that you hear once and they get stuck in your head for a very long time!
So, for todays blog post, I thought I would share my top 3 songs from Disney’s Aladdin!
3. Prince Ali/Prince Ali Reprise
Okay, I know this is cheating slightly as this could class as two separate songs but they’re both just too good to pass up on. Jafar’s reprise at the end is just fantastic and chilling. The original, sung by Genie is of course amazing. I couldn’t pick between the two.
2. Arabian Nights
The opening song from the movie is one I always sing along too, and rather loudly. We all of course know the change of the lyrics from ones that could be particularly offensive but still, this song holds a certain charm.
1. Friend Like Me
How could a Robin Williams number not be my first choice? This song is amazing. I love this song so much I have even listened to it in multiple languages, just as a way to help my brain store words. It’s quite an effective method at times. Neyo did a rather lovely cover of this song for the We Love Disney album, released in 2015.
