Let's be completely and utterly honest: Disney makes some damn good music. If you disagree then you are either lying to yourself or lying to seem "cool." Disney has made dozens of original animated films with fantastic lyrics and perfectly fit vocals. There are the Disney classics that everyone knows like "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "When You Wish Upon A Star," "Circle of Life," "A Whole New World," "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" or "You've Got a Friend in Me," but there are, no doubt, so many more Disney songs that are underplayed, underrated and underappreciated. Here is a list of the 10 most underrated Disney songs that you need to hear if you are a true Disney fan at heart.

13. "Something There" ("Beauty and the Beast")


12. "Fixer Upper" ("Frozen")


11. "I've Got a Dream" ("Tangled")


10. "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" ("Lilo & Stitch")


9. "Strangers Like Me" ("Tarzan")


8. "One Jump Ahead" ("Aladdin")


6. "Just Around The Riverbend" ("Pocahontas")


6. "Almost There" ("Princess and the Frog")


5. "Honor to Us All" ("Mulan")


4. "Spoon Full of Sugar" ("Mary Poppins")


3. "Poor Unfortunate Souls" ("The Little Mermaid")


2. "When She Loved Me" ("Toy Story 2")


1. "I Won't Say I'm In Love" ("Hercules")

Listening to these songs brings back memories of childhood. They evock the wide-eyed wonder of a new fantastical world that we have never experienced. The songs make us love the movies even more because we can sing along and be apart of them. Even though getting any Disney song stuck in your head can get annoying, these songs tell stories that resonate with children, teenagers and adults. Maybe it's time that you revisit the wonderful wolrd of Disney by watching these movies, especially the underrated ones and singing along to all the songs that accompany the magic.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.

Drama On Odyssey: Honesty Is A Virtue

Perhaps one should be more observant around their own household...

Scene: An Edwardian Era study

OSWALD is sitting at a desk, studying some papers. He scoffs and throws them back down, just as CORA enters.

OSWALD: There you are! Would care to explain that little outburst at Stratton's gala?

CORA: I was simply reminding him that there's a time and a place for everything.

OSWALD: Just wearing your new gown would have made enough of a statement.

CORA: Perhaps I wanted to make a bigger statement.

OSWALD: What on earth is going on with you? Every time I hear something on a radio show, it's always "Coraline Faraday has stumbled out of a pub!" "Coraline Faraday was seen with both Lord Timothy and Baron Parcival!" "Coraline Faraday Storms Offstage in the Middle of Festival!"

CORA: It's a new era, lots of girls are doing it. Back in Grandmother Fawcett's day, people still gawked at ladies wearing trousers and she did it anyway.

OSWALD: I doubt she did this much. Perhaps finishing school would have been best... But then again, you would have found a way to stir up trouble there too! I'm not quite sure what to do with you, Coraline... No... Mayhaps I'll have to confine you to the house.

CORA: Lise always lets me out if you do so.

OSWALD: I see. No more dancing.

CORA: (Pause) What you just repeated assures me complete joy.

OSWALD: All right. I'm closing your account.

CORA: What?! You can't do that, I'm of age!

OSWALD: Yes, I can! You live under my roof, you do not work, nor do you have your own land, so that money is still therefore mine, and I can do what I wish with it!

CORA: I can't believe this! You shouldn't be able to do this, you're not even my real father!

OSWALD: I am as much as it displeases you!

(Beat)

CORA: No, you're not. You really don't know anything. (Sighs) She didn't tell me either, I was eavesdropping.

OSWALD: With all that you've done, I'm not sure if I should believe you. I don't think I want to.

CORA: You don't want to?

(OSWALD turns away from CORA to reach for the papers he'd previously thrown down, and hands them to her)

CORA: "Petition for divorce."

OSWALD: I'm not sure what I did to deserve this.... I suppose if you're right, it wasn't me at all.

(ISABEL ALICIA enters)

ISABEL ALICIA: What is all the yelling? Coraline Veronica, what have you done this time?

OSWALD: Oh, no more than usual. But... She shared something quite unexpected, I wouldn't have believed her if it weren't for these... Sudden circumstances.

CORA: Why don't you be honest for once and tell him, Mother?

ISABEL ALICIA: I don't like your tone!

OSWALD: Is it true? That she isn't my child?

ISABEL ALICIA: W-What on earth are you talking about? Of course she's yours.

CORA: Stop lying, I know everything. You should have been a lot more discreet....

ISABEL ALICIA: I... I....

CORA: Berenice isn't his either. The blonde hair isn't from Grandmother.

OSWALD: For the gods' sake! Are any of the children mine?!

(Beat)

ISABEL ALICIA: Nigel and the twins.

OSWALD: I see... Who is it?

ISABEL ALICIA: I don't have to say.

OSWALD: Who is it, Isabel Alicia?! I should at least know that!

CORA: You wouldn't believe me. Or her. Or him.

(Beat)

OSWALD: Well then, I'll gladly sign the papers! Better to be alone than to be with a soon to be ex-wife who was tramping around that foppling of a scientist! Once you run off with him, tell him he's fired, and he'll no longer have any funding for his silly experiments! I hope you like the peasant life!

ISABEL ALICIA: I have money of my own, and they're not silly, they're brilliant! And the gods only know he was there for me while you were off on business every other fortnight!

(CORA starts to leave)

OSWALD: You stay right there, young lady! You started all this!

CORA: Me?

ISABEL ALICIA: How did you even find out?!

CORA: I overheard, and I peeked in at just the right moment... You know what that did to me, Mother? You know how it felt to find the man you call father isn't? That the man you call teacher is? To find out your life is a lie, your own name is a lie?! I'm not to blame here, if anything, it's you!

(A preteen girl, BERENICE, enters)

CORA: (Walking toward her and leading her away) Pack your things, we're going to our grandparents. At least they're honest with us.

(End scene)
