You know how in the cartoon movies, the villain gets their own song sung by or about them.

This one is my favorite, from The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, it's a sick and twisted lullaby about REVENGE! RIP Suzanne Pleshette (Zira's voice actress).

I loved Scar's song in the first Lion King with the hyenas. Then again, I just loved Scar in general.

Best disney golden era villain song ever. Period. I won't accept anything else. The cinematography is top notch, the theme is bolder and darker then much, and the entire tone set by this song and the movie is unparalleled.

It's not an animated movie, but the villain song "Dentist" from Little Shop of Horrors is hilarious as well as catchy.

Oh God yes. My kind of topic right here.

I've never seen The Hunchback, but that's a pretty interesting song about how that guy seems to be dealing with his own inner demons and temptations. I guess I need to see the whole movie for context.




My favorites are:
  • Poor Unfortunate Souls from The Little Mermaid. I always thought it was a totally fun song when I was younger, but I only just got all the lyrics 100% a few minutes ago. Love it.
  • Prince Ali (Dark Reprise) from Aladdin. It's short and sweet, and deliciously jerkish. Makes Jafar seem like the coolest guy in the movie for that short minute and a half.
  • Friends on the Other Side from The Princess and the Frog. Holy crap what a charismatic chap that Facilier is. It's like makin' a deal with the devil. The choreography on this one wins me over all the time, back when this movie was new, it was my biggest inspirations to do my best as an animator at he time. Like some kind of spark was ignited. When I watch it on YouTube, it doesn't have the same impact of awe on me as it did in theaters. I feel like this one's gotta be seen on a big enough screen (or at least a non cruddy resolution) to get the best effect.
That's it from me. I can't remember if Bluth movies had villian songs anymore, or even Pixar films, but I remember those for other reasons anyway.


Edit: It never occured to me that this topic could be used for live action films too. I'm a little spotty on live action movies, though.

Hmm. Villain songs. Definetly everything with Jafar in aladdin. The Prince Ali and You are only second rate (I think that was the name) are great. Also I always thought Ratican from Basil was great. In a funny way. :D

I loved Scar's song back in Lion King 1. He's just...scar. XD He has that special 'dangerous' aura that would send chills up his prey's spines. Hellfire is good too, I have to admit. Notre dame is so underrated. However when it comes to villain songs, 'be prepared' HAS to win, no doubt.

I forgot one. More of an honorable mention, really...

Big and Loud from Cats Don't Dance. It's not as powerful as the Disney songs, but I think the stark contrast between the version Darla sings to Danny, and then the version she sings in her own wardrobe room emphasizes just how two-faced and nasty that little girl is. She just hates Danny so much for upstaging her in the beginning, that she's willing to do anything to break him. Never trust the spoiled ones...

But honestly, I love every song in that movie, something not even the Disney movies I listed hold the honor of (save for TPatF).

This, this, this, a million times this.

"Be Prepared" was also pretty badass.

I'm really surprised that no one has mentioned "Gastion" yet. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like alot of the other villain songs too. ("Be Prepared" being the best song in "The Lion King" imo)

Idk, I always thought it was the catchiest of the villain themes, and one that really suited fit his character like a glove. If taken out of context you'd be liable to assume this man was the hero of the story
Spoiler:



I also really like "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind", but that's more out of context seeing I just like Vincent Price.

No one gets remixed like Gaston!


Serious answer: In the Dark of the Night, from Anastasia. Bonus points for having a Russian version.

OMFG I remember that movie and that song! Yes!

Also have to go with Be Prepared from the Lion King.

Besides the ones that have already been mentioned, I like Hellfire from The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Poor, Unfortunate Souls from The Little Mermaid.

Hunchback is such a well-made underratted movie.

My vote goes to Be Prepared from the Lion King.

Oh, and Cruella De Ville

Definitely Be Prepared by Scar is one of the better ones. That is a classic.

Have to agree with Hellfire, it's probably also a strong contender for the best disney song not just best villain. Hunchback is filled with great songs, if it wasn't for those despicable Gargoyles it could have been near perfect.

Hunchback is probably my favourite Disney film, and the aforementioned 'Hellfire' is the epitome of the film. Likewise, 'Be Prepared' is my favourite Lion King song. 'Gaston' isn't too bad, either. And whoever said 'Dentist!' is kind of inspired, even though it's one of my least favourite songs in Little Shop of Horrors.

Damn, all the good ones have already been said. I can't be all cool and original! :(

Seeing as my favorite disney villain doesn't have a song, Hellfire and Be Prepared are definitely up there, tied for first.

What I love about Hunchback as an adult is just the darkness in the story that was still preserved when it was disneyfied. I mean, think of Cinderella. The original was a bit... gory, and not a smidgeon of it was put into the film, but Hunchback still has a bit of its darkness. Hunchback was far from my favorite disney film as a child, but as an adult, I adore it for that reason: Disney will never be dark again. It's like, as the times change, disney is getting more conservative.

And Be Prepared... just... Scar.

The song where the villain Ruber starts executing his plans. Turning his soldiers to monsters and fusing chickens with axes. The song is great because you can clearly see Ruber is insane. Unlike Jafar who is just a bit whacky and power hungry.
