12 Disney Songs That Were So Good They Almost Made You Root For The Villain

- Page 1

Disney

If you're anything like me, the part you looked forward to the most in a Disney movie was the villain song, where they got to show off just how evil they were. Forget "Be Our Guest" or "Circle of Life," give me "Poor Unfortunate Souls" or "Be Prepared!"

These songs often had pretty intense imagery and creepy themes to go along with them, which of course meant they got stuck in our brains for pretty much forever. In particular, these 12 songs have been traumatizing and delighting us in equal amounts since we were kids.

The Lion King - "Be Prepared"

We gotta start this list off with a bang, and what better way than with one of the most preening, self-indulgent villains in Disney history. Not to mention that the hyenas start strutting around like the freaking Third Reich.

The Little Mermaid - "Poor Unfortunate Souls"

Ursula the Sea-Witch is one of the best villains Disney ever created, and part of what adds to that is this creepy, bombastic song about how she "helps" the people who come to her.

Lady And The Tramp - "We Are Siamese (If You Please)"

This is made all the creepier with the way that the cats slink around during the song, making them somehow look less like cats and more like demons.

101 Dalmations - "Cruella De Vil"

While this one's kind of meant to be funny, it still paints a pretty creepy picture of this heinous woman who wants to skin a bunch of dogs for a coat.

Winnie The Pooh - "Heffalumps And Woozles"

Pooh Bear has a nightmare that feels like something straight out of an H.P. Lovecraft horror story, where the heffalumps and woozles come out of the freaking woodwork to steal his honey.

The songs just get more evil from here...
