Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
As previously mentioned, the soundtrack to Hunchback of Notre Dame is so underrated and is actually one of my favourite Disney soundtracks. For this reason, I thought I would share my top 3 songs from this movie!
3. Court of Miracles
This song is just so fun. I feel it helps to show the Gypsies as fun and positive characters instead of the negative connotations that are usually thrust upon them in movies.
2. Belles of Notre Dame
This song is beautiful and is the perfect opening song for this movie. I love how Clopin narrates the story and how Frollo is responsible for the death of Quasimodo’s mother. The choir that sings behind the narration is just chilling and beautiful. It gives me chills every time.
Of course Hellfire has to come first, it’s a villain song. However, this villains song is different to any other I have heard. The lyrics, the choir, the orchestral backing track. It is all so chilling, so real. This is what makes Frollo so terrifying. He is so real. His battle between his religion and his lust for Esmeralda is the story of this song. The animation that goes with it is also so amazing. This song is my favourite overall for how strong and dark it is.
