Top 1 song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film: You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Writ­ten and first record­ed by Randy New­man, ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ is Toy Story’s theme song. It was nom­i­nat­ed for the Acad­e­my Award for Best Orig­i­nal Song and Gold­en Globe Award for Best Orig­i­nal Song. The song, which was cre­at­ed for this 1995 Disney/Pixar movie hit, has been cov­ered by oth­er artists and even trans­lat­ed into dif­fer­ent lan­guages. After being fea­tured in all Toy Sto­ry films and numer­ous cov­ers, this song has stood the test time and con­tin­ues to be a famil­iar tune to both the Gen X and Y.

Top 2 song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film: Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Who doesn’t know Frozen’s mas­ter­piece song ‘Do you Want to Build a Snow­man?’? Per­formed by Kirsten Bell, Agatha Lee Monn & Katie Lopez, the song topped the charts and played in my head for weeks (pos­si­bly even months). The song was used as a sto­ry­telling instru­ment, effec­tive­ly tak­ing its movie view­ers through the mile­stones of the friend­ship between Anna and Elsa. It starts off with an upbeat tune and mel­lows when it focuss­es on the rift between the sib­lings. Lis­ten to it and tell me if you’re able to stop it play­ing in your head.

Top 3 song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film: Return to Pooh Corner

I can still remem­ber the Ken­ny Log­gins cas­sette where I first dis­cov­ered this touch­ing song. I played it so many times that the tape got all wound up sev­er­al times. Released in 1994, ‘Return to Pooh Cor­ner’ is one of the songs in Loggins’s Gram­my-nom­i­nat­ed children’s album with the same title. Although the song talks about what hap­pens in Pooh Cor­ner, the mes­sage of friend­ship is clear­ly con­veyed in the heart­warm­ing depen­dence of Christo­pher Robin, Win­nie the Pooh, Eey­ore, and Owl on each other.

Top 4 song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film: Remem­ber Me This Way

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, Casper, the friend­ly ghost, had to go but not with­out leav­ing Wendy with a fan­tas­tic mem­o­ry of them danc­ing togeth­er to this emo­tion­al tune. ‘Remem­ber Me This Way’ is singer-song­writer Jor­dan Hill’s first sin­gle, which became the ani­mat­ed film Casper’s theme song. This song show­cas­es the strong friend­ship between ghost and human. Lis­ten to it, and you’ll under­stand why it’s on my list.

Top 5 song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film: Friend Like Me

Robin Williams was, indeed, a total per­former as proven by his ren­di­tion of the song ‘Friend Like Me’ in his role as the Genie in the film Aladdin. The orig­i­nal song col­lect­ed nom­i­na­tions from the 65th Acad­e­my Awards and the 50th Gold­en Globe Awards. In the song, the Genie empha­sis­es how lucky Aladdin is to have him as he can grant him three wish­es. The per­for­mance of the Genie and the scene’s visu­als are as mem­o­rable as this song about friendship.

My cheat song about friend­ship from an ani­mat­ed film that’s still in the mak­ing: For Good

Allow me to add one more song from the musi­cal ‘The Wicked’. I believe the movie team is work­ing on its ani­mat­ed film adap­ta­tion, which will be released in Decem­ber 2019. The film will undoubt­ed­ly fea­ture the song ‘For Good’. Orig­i­nal­ly per­formed by Kristin Chenoweth and Idi­na Men­zel in the Broad­way musi­cal, this farewell song, whose music and lyrics were com­posed by Stephen Schwartz, stress­es how friend­ships shape our lives, maybe not always or clear­ly for the bet­ter, but def­i­nite­ly for good.

Songs are vital in mak­ing a movie linger in our minds. The more they’re able to con­nect with the view­ers on dif­fer­ent lev­els, the more they become embed­ded in us. Per­son­al­ly, I may for­get the film title, but I don’t for­get its songs. Each song rep­re­sents a time in my life and a par­tic­u­lar group of friends or fam­i­ly. I can’t help but feel nos­tal­gic lis­ten­ing to these songs.
