The Best Songs By Disney Villains

Voting Rules
Only songs from Walt Disney Animation Studios movies.

Everyone loves to hate a good villain. In particular, Disney villains have found a place in the hearts of millions right alongside the heroes they fought against. The princesses and the heroes all got their moments to shine with a beloved musical number where they sing about love or bravery. Thus, it only makes sense for the villains to also have their moment in the sun with a song. There have been plenty of great songs sung by villains over the years, but which one do you think is the best of all time? 

Do you sing along with Gaston and the rest of his men any time he breaks out into the appropriately-named "Gaston?" Perhaps you're more of a fan of "Poor Unfortunate Souls" as sung by Ursula in The Little Mermaid? There are numerous great songs to choose from that have been sung over the decades. You can practice your evil laugh as you listen to each one. Best of all, you can revisit all these classic songs with your Disney+ account.

Vote up the best Disney villain songs, and vote down the musical numbers that were disappointing. And remember, this list does not include music from Pixar movies, live-action films, or Disney Channel movies – only classic Disney animated films
