If you are anything like us at Gradient, it is not enough just to enjoy something, you must rank it. Rank it in a systematic way with such fervor and detail that you become detached and no longer care about the very thing that once brought you joy. Or anything else, for that matter. Anyway, what’s the best Disney song?
Many a road trip have been ruined by fierce debates over Disney song superlatives. The arguments usually get pretty heated, and while some people can “Let It Go,” the rest of us are going “Un Poco Loco.” To put an end to the debate, Gradient will “Go the Distance” and “Into the Unknown” with the tried and trusted MaxDiff.
Scientifically speaking, no Disney movie has put out more bangers than The Lion King. America's favorite Disney songs are “Hakuna Matata” and “The Circle of Life.” Whether we splice the data by parenthood or familiarity with Disney, one or the other tops the charts. These are 🎶🎶🎶 the simple bare necessities 🎶🎶🎶 of the Disney collection.
The classics have a special place in America’s CD player, as only Frozen’s “Let It Go” is a top preference made after the 1990s (we expect different results when Gen Z is all grown up). Sorry Lin-Manuel Miranda, you should stick with Broadway as Americans En-Can’t-O deal with your revolutionary compositions (+1 Hamilton joke). It looks like saying “You’re Welcome” was a bit premature.
