Disney Love Songs

There's just something very nostalgic about Disney theme songs, albeit the fleeting seconds they're played for. Being a steadfast character in every possible Disney production, the songs're a tradition brought forward 'till today. Here're some classic Disney love songs.

Song: A Whole New World
Artists: Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle
Featured In: Aladdin

Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle embody the magic carpet ride, carrying one away with their glorious harmony, through the highs and lows and into the magical realm where deserts, magic and gold glitters throughout. Dreamy and wondrous, 'tis a Disney classic that's stuck in my head throughout. 

Song: Can You Feel The Love Tonight
Artist: Elton John
Featured In: The Lion King

The Lion King has many amazing African folk-inspired songs which head my preference, but this one's by far the most romantic. Elton John's deep vocals echoes through as Simba and Nala's new-found love blooms in the African jungles, rekindling passion as the rhythm sets its pace. Lovely. 

Song: Reflection
Artist: Christina Aguilera
Featured In: Mulan

Reflection isn't quite a love song, but it has that very slow, languid air around it that makes it a perfect semi-love song. And I like Mulan best among all Disney productions, hence this had to come in somewhere. A song that reveals the vulnerable side of her, Aguilera shows impressive skills in the song, Reflection being one of her earlier, better works. 

Song: I Won't Say (I'm In Love)
Artist: Susan Egan
Featured In: Hercules

A soulful, jazzy number this song croons love in every note as Megara(tries) to deny it. Being cheated by Hades and wooed by Hercules, torn between the two and yet woodenly self assured and independent, the song reveals a lot of her character. An excellent track, accentuated by background vocals of the 'Muses' this is a must hear, is you've yet to.

 Song: Beauty And The Beast
Artists: Peabo Bryson and Celine Dion
Featured In: Beauty And The Beast

The Academy Award winning masterpiece, Beauty and the Beast is the most romantic of them all, serenading the Beast and the Beauty as they float by golden dancefloors, velvet and roses. Bryson's deep voice along with Dion's crystal one marries beautifully in this tune, sending shivers down the spine as you indulge.
