Calling all Disney fans! We might as well say "Calling all humans," right? Who doesn't love the world of Disney?! Uncool people, that's who!
We Love Disney, the album of cover songs featuring the likes of Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani and Tori Kelly is out today. And while we have been getting sneak peeks at some of the tracks like "Let It Go" and "Part of Your World," we didn't really appreciate the real magic of contemporary artists covering Disney classic until we listened to the whole thing.
The entire album is also on Spotify, and because we love you guys, we spent the morning listening to every single song. More than once. OK, like eight times. And if you want to prioritize your listening order, we got you. You are welcome:
14. Gwen Stefani - "The Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie
We wanted something funkier from Gwen.
13. Various Artists - "It's a Small World"
Look, this song is forever burned into our memories as one of the most annoying Disney songs of all time, thanks in most part to the iconic ride at Disney World. Though everyone singing on this cover makes it less painful, we're still not into it.
12. Lucy Hale and Rascal Flatts - "Let It Go" from Frozen
If this song isn't a soaring ballad sung by a powerhouse like Idina Menzel, we're just kind of "meh" about it. Though we do appreciate the country twang Hale and Rascal Flatts brought.
11. Jhené Aiko - "In a World of My Own/Very Good Advice" from Alice in Wonderland
This kind of put us to sleep, which means it's a great chill-out song. We could see us listening to it while sitting in front of the fire, holding a glass of wine, staring into the eyes of our fiancé, Idris Elbda. … What were we talking about?
10. Jason Derulo - "Can You Feel the Love Tonight/Nants' Ingonyama" from The Lion King
While Jason's voice sounds wonderful, we're not feeling the love for this remake as much as we probably should.
9. Kacey Musgraves - "A Spoonful of Sugar" from Mary Poppins
We love the country twist on this song, but we wish she covered a Disney tune that showed off her vocals better. Or maybe if she made it a bit grittier? We don't know, we're not the experts here. The song just fell kind of flat for us.
8. Charles Perry - "Ev'rybody Wants To Be a Cat" from The Aristocats
He somehow makes a song about cartoon cats sexy. It's weird, but we're into it.
7. Tori Kelly - "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas
A stunning cover of a stunning song.
6. Jessie Ware - "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" from Cinderella
5. Fall Out Boy - "I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)" from The Jungle Book
Hello, new workout song! Listen to this jam and try to keep your limbs still. You can't!
4. Brenna Whitaker - "It's Not Easy Being Green" From The Muppet Show
This cover is so flawless and beautiful we're seriously considering making it the first dance song at our upcoming wedding to Idris Elba.
3. Ariana Grande - "Zero To Hero" from Hercules
We should mention that Hercules is our favorite Disney movie, so that fact might have pushed us to put this cover song so high on the list. However, this would have been ranked high regardless. Ariana Grande covering a Gospel-esque track? Forget about it. Those high notes give us life.
2. Ne-Yo - "Friend Like Me" from Aladdin
Ne–Yo brings real swag to this swing tune, and we're obsessed.
1. Jessie J - "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid
We all knew who would be number one going into this ranking, right? Jessie J positively rips up (in a good way) this classic Little Mermaid tune. It's how we all wish we sounded when we sing it in the shower.
We Love Disney is out now, so if you listen to these songs in this order, you'll be just fine. Or listen to it however you want because it's Disney songs and you really can't go wrong.
