Disney Song #6: Circle of Life

To Listen: Click Here

The Facts:

  • Year: 1994
  • Key: B Major (though linked version above is in B Major)

Heard In: 
The Lion King

Now that's how you start a movie!  Amazing that this one is all the way down at 6, since it's one of the most hopeful and powerful songs out there.  If you don't get major goosebumps watching and listening to the clip, then we may need to check your pulse.  And spoiler alert!  This is the last (and therefore best) song from a Disney animated movie on my countdown.  I'm not as big on the Elton John version, though I have to give him big props for writing it.  The Wikipedia article on the song claims that he wrote and recorded a demo in 90 minutes which is amazing.
