What is the most uplifting Disney song?
11,000 fans participated in RadioTime’s survey which asked them which Disney song from Disney+ made them the happiest when they heard it. Here is what they had to say.
“Bare Necessities”, sung by Baloo (Phil Harris) and Mowgli (Bruce Reitherman) in the 1967 classic The Jungle Book came in first place which was voted for by 40% of the readers. This song was closely followed by the iconic Randy Newman’s “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” from Pixar’s Toy Story. Tying for second place was The Lion King’s “Hakuna Matata”. Both “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” and “Hakuna Matata” are Oscar-nominated songs and each received 29% of the vote.
