I'd be safe but half as real

Never knowing I could feel

A love so strong and true

I'm so grateful to you

I'd have lived my whole life through

Lost forever

If I never knew you."

This passionate expression of love between John Smith and Pocahontas isn't even in the original film, but you can find it in the 10th anniversary edition!

I'm home

If you are there beside me

Like dark turning into day

Somehow we'll come through

Now that I've found you

Love will find a way."

Performed by Liz Callaway and Gene Miller in The Lion King 2, when Simba's daughter, Kiara, falls in love with the lion who is supposed to overthrow her father. Scandalous.

Every hour we spent together lives within my heart

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires

Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do."

For the one I love

To find me

The nice things

He'll say."

My heart keeps singing

Of one love

Only for you."

This little love song collaboration happens when the Prince first meets the fair Snow White.

13. "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" - Cinderella / Via Walt Disney Productions

"A dream is a wish your heart makes

When you're fast asleep

In dreams you lose your heartaches

Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday

Your rainbow will come smiling thru

No matter how your heart is grieving

If you keep on believing

the dream that you wish will come true"

This song from Cinderella, performed by Ilene Woods, reminds us to not give up, even when our heart feels broken. Isn't that romantic?


12. "Someday My Prince Will Come" - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs / Via Walt Disney Productions

"Some day my prince will come

Some day we'll meet again

And away to his castle we'll go

To be happy forever I know."

Sung by Adriana Caselotti, Snow White uses this song to recall her meeting with the Prince to the dwarves. Who doesn't dream about being swept away to a castle by a handsome prince?

11. "True Love's Kiss" - Enchanted / Via Walt Disney Pictures

"I've been dreaming of a true love's kiss

And a prince, I'm hoping, comes with this

That's what brings ever-aftering so happy

That's the reason we need lips so much

For lips are the only things that touch

So to spend a life of endless bliss

Just find who you love through true love's kiss."

Disney's Enchanted immediately sets the mood with Amy Adam's performance of this song. It's perfect for the hopeless romantic inside of us all.

10. "Love Is an Open Door" - Frozen

To the pain of the past

We don't have to feel it anymore

Love is an open door

Love is an open door

Life can be so much more."

8. "Once Upon a Dream" - Sleeping Beauty / Via Walt Disney Productions

"I know you

I walked with you once upon a dream

I know you

The gleam in your eyes is so familiar, a gleam

Yet I know it's true

That visions are seldom all they seem

But if I know you, I know what you'll do

You'll love me at once

The way you did once upon a dream."

This classic song from Sleeping Beauty, sung by Mary Costa, will have you twirling around your room for the rest of the day. Check out the awesome remake by Lana Del Ray here.

7. "Bella Notte" - Lady and the Tramp

"Side by side with your loved one,

You'll find enchantment here.

The night will weave its magic spell,

When the one you love is near!

Oh, this is the night, and the heavens are right

On this lovely bella notte!"

What's more romantic than the scene where they share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs? Nothing. Play this song during any meal to sweep your significant other off their feet.

6. "I See The Light" - Tangled / Via Walt Disney Animation Studios

"And at last I see the light

And it's like the fog has lifted

And at last I see the light

And it's like the sky is new

And it's warm and real and bright

And the world has somehow shifted

All at once everything looks different

Now that I see you."

This duet between Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi takes place during the most magical scene in Tangled. Doesn't this make you want to go on a romantic boat ride, complete with floating lanterns?

5. "Tale as Old as Time" - Beauty and the Beast / Via Walt Disney Pictures

"Tale as old as time

True as it can be

Barely even friends

Then somebody bends


Just a little change

Small to say the least

Both a little scared

Neither one prepared

Beauty and the Beast."

The song is also known as "Beauty and the Beast", and it's one of the most beautiful Disney love songs. In the film it is sung by Angela Lansbury but don't miss out on the Celine Dion version either!


4. "Kiss the Girl" - The Little Mermaid

View this video on YouTube / Via Walt Disney Pictures

"Now's your moment

Floating in a blue lagoon

Boy you better do it soon

No time will be better

She don't say a word

And she won't say a word

Until you kiss the girl."

Speaking of magical boat rides...who wouldn't want to be serenaded in the middle of a lagoon with Prince Eric?! Well Samuel Wright (as Sebastian) makes this fantasy come true for Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

3. "A Whole New World" - Aladdin / Via Walt Disney Pictures

"I can show you the world

Shining, shimmering, splendid

Tell me, princess, now when did

You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes

Take you wonder by wonder

Over, sideways and under

On a magic carpet ride."

It's pretty hard to turn down a magic carpet ride when you're being serenaded by a handsome man (sung by Brad Kane), like in Aladdin. This song will inspire you to take a chance on love for sure.

2. "So This Is Love" - Cinderella / Via Walt Disney Productions

"My heart has wings, hmm

And I can fly

I'll touch every star in the sky

So this is the miracle

That I've been dreaming of

Ah, the moment in Cinderella where Prince Charming meets his future princess. This is the ideal song for someone in love to hum to themselves all day long.

1. "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" - The Lion King

View this video on YouTube / Via Walt Disney Pictures

"There's a calm surrender to the rush of day

When the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away

An enchanted moment, and it sees me through

It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you."

The mother of all Disney love songs has to be none other than "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" from The Lion King. The song is performed by Timon and Pumba in the film but is composed by Elton John, and it embodies the beauty of falling in love with your best friend. What's sweeter than that?
