Musical Monday: The Lion King - Be Prepared (#36).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

This is a movie I desperately need to re-watch. I haven't seen it in ages. So while it tops a lot of people's lists for favorite Disney movie, I can't in all honesty do it because it's been too long since I've watched it. But there is a lot that sticks with me from when I had seen it. Also, we all know I love my villain songs in these movies, and "Be Prepared" is no different. From the Nazi allusions (which were purely coincidental in placing this in the final week of Nazi Month) to the overall creepy factor, this number is quite villainous. Also, did you know that for the last 30 seconds or so, it's not even Jeremy Irons singing? Yeah, that's insane.
