    Disney Gets 'Tied Up' In the Top 10

    The following was excerpted from CNN's Screening Room Top 10 Movie songs list

    3= Pinocchio - When you wish upon a star
    Performed by Cliff Edwards; written by Ned Washington and Leigh Harline
    Directors Hamilton Luske and Ben Sharpsteen, 1940, Disney

    3= Beauty and the Beast -- Beauty and the Beast
    Performed by Angela Lansbury; written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman
    Directors Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, 1991, Disney

    We gave Walt his own category, and still couldn't pick between these two enchanting tunes that twinkle with Disney magic. Like charmed bookends, the former comes from Disney's second full-length animated feature, while the latter heralds the 90's renaissance of the studio. Totally captivating.

    Also of note on the list:

    9. The Muppet Movie -- Rainbow Connection
    Performed by Jim Henson; written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher
    Director James Frawley, 1979, children's film

    Just why are there so many songs about rainbows? Kermit the Frog and his furry friends set out to conquer Hollywood, and charmed the lovers, the dreamers and us en route with this lilting, wistful song.

    Another note: Did anyone notice that the top two songs were from movies now owned by TimeWarner, who in turn owns CNN?

    I'm offically calling blarney, mullarkey, shenanigans and BS as well as homerism.

    That's about as fair and balanced as Fixed Noise...

    ^^ True, but it's hard to argue with those choices, they're pretty iconic.

    I overlooked yet another song on the list from a Disney movie (although I can't fathom how this qualifies as one of the top ten movie songs. It's no better or worse than the songs on their worst list):

    4. Armageddon -- I Don't Want to Miss a Thing
    Performed by Aerosmith; written by Diane Warren
    Director Michael Bay, 1998, action/adventure

    Big, bad Steve Tyler gives Diane Warren's soul-searching paean a metal injection. Gloriously anguished and unashamedly obsessive, this Oscar-nominated power piece can claim to be the ultimate rock ballad.

    I have no trouble with the list, though I would maybe remove Aerosmith from it. However, the music on the hate list is 100% accurate. Titanic is the most overrated movie ever, and that theme song stinks.
