Musical Monday: Aladdin - One Jump Ahead (#22).

[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.]

And now for something much more fun than last week's! It's no secret that this is one of my favorite animated Disney films (and I've already had one song from it on this list). And, strangely, not only did I just talk about this movie with friends last night, but we quoted this very song (without me realizing it was today's song). Anywho, I love all the songs in this film, but I really like this one as it's the first big number of the movie... and it sets up your main character nicely. Not to mention it has some puns and very clever wording. And it's catchy, to boot.

  1. It would be really hard to find a fault with this movie or the music. I'm not sure I can say that about a Disney film released since, though.
