Favorite Aladdin Song


#1

Okay, I was just listening to the soundtrack for the movie Aladdin, and suddenly found that I couldn’t decide which song is the best!

What’s your favorite song? :happy:


#2

Really, I love them all. But I voted “friend like me” cause I’m a sucker for swing/big band themes!


#3

I love “One Jump Ahead” - but, “A Whole New World” is so awesome, too…but, I like the MOVIE version better than the ‘love song’ version. :c)


#4

This really brought me back, hehe. Aladdin was probably one of my favorite Disney soundtracks ever. When it came out, I think I was 13 or 14, my best friend and I used to listen to it over… and over… and over again!

I always loved “One Jump Ahead.” It is such a fun song!


#5

I agree with you Wish, I used to love this soundtrack when it was new. I think I wore that CD out.

As much as I like all the song listed on the poll, I have to go with “A Whole New World” for it’s beautiful melody and harmonies, and also for the images that it evokes, from the scene in the movie when I hear it.


#6

Thay are all awesome, but I voted for a while new world, because it is my favorite!


#7

This was a real tough one but I had to go with Prince Ali


#8

DD and I do a mean in-the-car duet of A Whole New World.


#9

I still have the soundtrack on tape somewhere, it is one of my favorites!

I think One Jump Ahead is my favorite of all, but Whole New World is close second!


#10

prince ali rocks…


#11

Whole New World all the way!


#12

I voted for A Whole New Wrold because of the harmony, but it was very difficult to decide beween that and One Jump. I like One Jump because it is fun, and I like the acting in the song. Ican always picture the women going gaga over Aladdin, the gaurds chasing him, and his smarty pants remarks and actions. “I still only what I can’t afford, and that’s everything…”


#13

I picked Prince Ali b/c my son used to sound so funny singing along w/ Robin Williams. Especially when he got to the line with "Ali-a-ba-bwwwwaaaa.


#14

I love A Whole New World, I even have it as one of my ringtones.


#15

Wow its so hard to choose just one, its an incredible soundtrack. If I had to choose just one I guess I’d have to vote for “A Friend Like Me.”


#16

I picked “A Whole New World” probably mostly due to its inclusion in PhilharMagic. That is my favorite scene in the movie.

Prince Ali would be my second choice:

Prince Ali, fabulous he, Ali Ababwa!
Genuflect, show some respect
Down on one knee
Now try your best to stay calm
Brush up your Sunday Salaam
And come and meet his spectacular coterie.
Prince Ali, mighty is he, Ali Ababwa!
Strong as ten regular men, definitely
He faced the galloping hordes
A hundred bad guys with swords
Who sent those goons to their lords, why Prince Ali!
CHORUS OF MEN: He’s got seventy-five golden camels!
HARRY: Don’t they look lovely, June?
CHORUS OF WOMEN: Purple peacocks, he’s got fifty-three!
JUNE: Fabulous, Harry, I love the feathers!
GENIE: Has he got a zoo, I’m telling you
It’s a world class menagerie!
GENIE: GIRLS: Prince Ali, Handsome is he, Ali Ababwa
There’s no question this Ali’s alluring
That physique, how can I speak
Never ordinary, never boring
Weak at the knee
Everything about the man just plain impresses
Well, get on out in that square
He’s a wonder, he’s a whiz, a wonder
Adjust your veil and prepare
He’s about to pull my heart asunder
To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!
And I absolutely love the way he dresses!
CHORUS: He’s got ninety-five white Persian monkeys!
(He’s got the monkeys, let’s see the monkeys!)
And to view them, he charges no fee!
(He’s generous, so generous)
He’s got slaves, he’s got servants and flunkies!
(Proud to work for him)
They bow to his whim, love serving him
They’re just lousy with loyalty to Ali! Prince Ali!
GENIE: Prince Ali! Amorous he! Ali Ababwa
Heard your princess was a sight lovely to see!
And that, good people, is why
He got dolled up and dropped by
With sixty elephants, llamas galore
With his bears and lions
A brass band and more
With his forty fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
His birds that warble on key
Make way for Prince Ali!
