This tune also has a place in Disney history, as it's been translated to several languages performed by Phil Collins and other singers.
Every time you hear this song, it feels like a comforting pep talk–the ultimate “chin up, you've got this” anthem.
Following the iconic shot of the blazing African sunrise, the savannah's wildlife begin to stir, and then Elton's anthem rolls in, elevating the 1994 classic's opening scene to pure magic.
It hits the bullseye on the older-sibling experience, and this relatable anthem resonated so much that it danced its way up to the number eight spot on the Billboard charts.
This swoon-worthy ballad from Disney's 1991 animated film Beauty and the Beast, performed by vocal powerhouses Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, is a love song for the ages.
