These are my 10 favorite Disney songs performed mostly or exclusively by male characters.
And can I say, Gaston himself is one of the reasons I really love the whole movie - it's one of the first Disney fairy tales where the villain is meant to be better-looking than the hero. Gaston has the (slightly exaggerated) physique of the typical Prince Charming, and while that's apparently enough to captivate Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, and Snow White, Belle sees through all that to the monster he is inside.
This was probably not a surprise to anyone who knows me well, as you probably know that I freaking love this song with all my heart. It's got a couple girls singing throughout, but the primary singer is Max, so I felt OK including it on this list. I think this is one of the best songs that has ever appeared in any Disney movie, ever. The sense of joy and triumph and "I'm gonna make it!" pervading the entire song makes absolutely everything in my life feel better. While on the surface it's about the last day of school, it's also (for Max) about the fact that he's about to do something big and hopes that his whole life will change if he follows through with it.
There have been so many times throughout my life where this has been my theme song - "If I can just make it through today and what I need to do today, EVERYTHING WILL BE AWESOME." It's just not possible to overstate my love for this song. I've loved it since I first heard it years and years ago and I love it today. One of my top feel good songs, and, by far, my favorite male-sung Disney song.
What are your favorite Disney songs sung by men? Are there any on my list you just can't stand? In general, do you think the guys or the girls in Disney movies get better songs?
