Top Six Best Hero Songs
* * *
And here we are, with the converse of my last post; the Top Six Best Hero Songs!
While Villain Songs are usually my favorites, there are some pretty great hero songs as well. The following is a list of my favorite hero songs from various musicals and movies.
* * *
#1: Out There
Movie: The Hunchack of Notre Dame
Notes: I love the chord progressions in this song. Not to mention it's in my range for the most part, so I can sing right along with Quasi and Frollo. (Well, an octave above Frollo, technically.)
Musical: The Lord of the Rings
Notes: I don't know how many of you LOTR junkies know that there was actually a musical made for The Lord of the Rings, but there was. Now before you think, Oh no! Just what we needed- dancing orcs!, let me say that it actually seems pretty good. Very different from the movies, but good. It has three parts, one part for each book. This is my favorite song from it- unfortunately I could not get the full version. Thus the Lothlorien you see is the abridges song.
#3: Let My People Go
Movie: The Prince of Egypt
Notes: This is a unique combination of a Hero/Villain song. It's pretty epic. And it's a Bible Story. XD
#4: All I Ever Wanted
Movie: Prince of Egypt
#5: The Wizard and I
Notes: It's not often that a character sings both the Hero Songs and the Villain Song. But Elphaba pulls it off! :)
#6: Little Town
Movie: Beauty and the Beast
Notes: Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, with The Hunchback being a close second. Belle reminds me of myself a lot. :)
