10 Disney Songs for When You Need Some Extra Motivation


Mulan – I’ll Make a Man Out of You
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVcLIfSC4OE
This is definitely the song you need to listen to right before you head out to write an exam. “Once you find your centre, you are sure to win.”

The Lion King – Hakuna Matata
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB5ceAruYrI
“It’s our problem-free philosophy.” Enough said.

The Jungle Book – Bare Necessities
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ogQ0uge06o
When you’re trying to cram 5 minutes before an exam starts: “Don’t spend your time looking around for something you want that can’t be found.” The bare necessities of life will come to you.

Moana – How Far I’ll Go
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPAbx5kgCJo
“What’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?” Try something new. You’ll be amazed by how far you’ll go.

Beauty and the Beast – Belle
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTUZswZHsWQ
“With a dreamy far-off look, and her nose stuck in a book, what a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle.” Just think how proud Belle would be if you actually got your readings done.

Toy Story – You’ve Got a Friend in Me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMN4JZ8crVY
Listen to this one when group work starts to go south…“We stick together and can see it through, 'cause you've got a friend in me.”

Pocahontas – Colors of the Wind
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9MvdMqKvpU
“We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain. We need to paint with all the colors of the wind.” Again a good song for group work – be better together.

The Princess and the Frog – Almost There
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYc5H7VvZbc
Tiana sounds like every student in their last year: “Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share. There ain't nothing gonna stop me now ‘cause I'm almost there.”

Frozen – Let it Go
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVVTZgwYwVo
“The cold never bothered me anyway.” Bad grade? Let it go. The next one will be better!

Hercules – Go the Distance
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgnHF2CwrPs
And, finally, some solid advice from our favourite demi-god: “It's an uphill slope, but I won't lose hope, 'till I go the distance.”
