Whenever I think of something spooky and scary, Halloween is the first thing that always comes to mind. Nothing screams like Halloween with this classic from ‘The Nightmare before Christmas.’ You got the spooky instrumental and lyrics that define Halloween. Spiders, snakes, clowns, banshees, skeletons, pumpkins, you name it! It’s also pretty catchy as well, so you’ll have this song stuck in your head, even when it’s not Halloween. Check it out, listen to it a few times, and don’t get scared!
Who knew this haunting ballad from the movie, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ had some life lessons about love? The theme song from the movie talks about how the 2 characters, Beast and Belle’s relationship. They learn to accept each other’s differences and mistakes, and that they’ve changed each other for the better. For many that are still looking or growing their relationship with their significant other, it’s always a good reminder that relationships aren’t meant to be perfect. The person you are together with is perfect for you, even if there are imperfections and arguments…just like Beast and Belle.
Many songs from the Lion King are considered are classics. With ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight,’ the version that plays during Simba and Nala’s scene the middle of the movie is calming yet euphoric. The lyrics though, actually talk about Simba and Nala’s thoughts for each other. For Simba, his past haunts him and but Nala doesn’t seem to care. You know, for many of us, we may not like our past but it makes us who we are today, and someone else may not care about our past, but only about changing ourselves for the better now and in the future.
