DisneyLies Official Best & Worst: Disney Theme Park Song

Best

  • “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)”: Few people realize that the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction was originally sponsored by Life cereal.
  • “Baroque Hoedown”: The Main Street Electrical Parade’s familiar theme is probably the best thing Kraftwerk ever did.
  • “it’s a small world”: Banned in more countries than any other Disney song, but still a classic.
  • “Swisskapolka”: Lively, toe-tapping, and far superior to Epcot’s “Norwegiankapolka.”
  • “Grim Grinning Ghosts”: Here’s a hair-raising bit of trivia — when the Ohio Players were recording this song, a woman was murdered in the next room and her screams were kept on the soundtrack!!!

Worst

  • “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Monsanto”: Easily Disney’s biggest musical sell out.
  • “The Rikki-Tikki-Tavi Room”: This Tiki Room overlay didn’t last two months.
  • “The Ballad of Davy Jones”: It was a horrible mistake to make Pirates of the Caribbean 3 a musical.
  • “Stitch’s Great Escape Medley”: Mostly autotuned slobbering noises, this song somehow musically conjures the smell of bad chili.
  • “If You Think We’re Sexy”: Not the Dapper Dans’ finest moment.
