If you’re anything like us, sometimes you’re driving down the road (or sitting in traffic) and you feel the need to belt out a Disney tune. After much time and experimentation, we’ve narrowed down the top tunes to sing to at the top of our lungs, while people in cars around us look on with what we like to think is awe. Turn up the music and try out these inspiring songs next time you hit the road, no matter what path you’re on or where you are headed.
1. “Let It Go”- Frozen
If you’re stuck on the freeway and not moving, the only thing to do is to take a page from Elsa’s book and let it go. You’ll forget you’re at a standstill on the road and feel like you’re one with the wind and sky instead.
2. “I Can Go the Distance” – Hercules
If you’re at the start of a long road trip it can be daunting to know that you’ve got a lot of miles ahead of you, but you don’t have to do it alone. Herc will provide more than enough inspiration to get to your destination feeling like a hero.
3. “The Circle of Life” – The Lion King
Even driving in your car is part of the circle of life. Our cars move us all. Sing this one when going through picturesque landscapes. It will remind you of the things you want to see and do in the world.
4. “I’ve Got A Dream” – Tangled
Whatever your dream may be, we find it is often helpful to sing about it with Rapunzel. This is a great one to sing with your BFF riding along in the passenger seat.
5. “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” – Mulan
Let’s get down to business and drive to work, the grocery store, or wherever. Singing along with Shang will help you set your priorities and get pumped to have a productive day.
6. “Just Around the Riverbend” – Pocahontas
Even though your car isn’t a canoe, you can imagine it is as you sing this song. Pocahontas will make sure you’re looking out for all of the good things that are waiting for you beyond the traffic light that takes five minutes to turn green.
7. “Kiss the Girl” – The Little Mermaid
We find this is a great one to sing with the windows down. You never know when you’ll inspire someone on a nearby sidewalk to finally go in for true love’s kiss.
8. “Belle” – Beauty and the Beast
This song is great when it’s early in the morning and you want to say “bonjour” to everyone in the cars around you. Bonus points if you can get fellow drivers to sing along, in character.
9. “A Whole New World” – Aladdin
This is best sung with a passenger in the car, so that you can take turns being Aladdin and Jasmine.
10. “Almost There” – The Princess and the Frog
When you spend a lot of time in your car, sometimes it feels like it takes forever to get where you need to be. Luckily, singing along with Tiana will remind you that with a little hard work and a few stop signs, you’re almost there.
