Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #66 – “I See the Light,” from Tangled


66. “I See the Light,” from Tangled

The songs from Tangled are like, good-plus, but nothing all-time memorable. However, this is the closest song that approaches the level of all the other great Disney stuff from all-time. Still not totally as memorable as the others, but in terms of pure songwriting, it can be in that discussion. It’s Alan Menken, so of course it’s well-written. But this is just a beautiful song. This is a song that, for a few years, I kept forgetting how good it was until I went back and heard it again. It’s the best song from Tangled by far, and is really the best song of this entire Disney era of movies, until Frozen (and then Moana). But really, the songs from Tangled are really the only Disney songs worth mentioning since like, Tarazan. (I know Princess and the Frog had songs, but they’re just kind of okay to me.)
