However while many songs do become beloved and popular, some do not. Oh sure, people love them but they tend to gi under the radar when discussing Disney songs even though they are just as great as the big one’s. No normally when I do these kind of lists the idea is examples which most people don’t know. But let’s be honest here. If you’re even a passive Disney fan chances are you’ve come across these. So I wont act like I am the first to discover these or anything, these are just songs I love that I don’t think get the attention they deserve. They didn’t win the academy awards and they aren’t the first song people associate with the movies. But they’re awesome nonetheless.
Candle on the Water from “Pete’s Dragon”.
I don’t have much to say about this movie. It was just another feeble attempt to blend live action and animation. Why did it take so long for Disney to realize that just throwing cartoons into a live action movie isn’t going to make the movie good? That being said, this song is simply beautiful. I called it underrated but it was a maginal hit. It was nominated for best song but lost. And Helen Reddy’s recording of reach #27 on the charts. Never heard of it? Take a listen.
