April 15th-What Is My Favourite Disney Song Of All Time?

Hi all! 

Welcome to Day 15 of the 30 Day Disney Blogging Challenge. We are halfway through! I’ve been enjoying this so much so far. 

Today I am sharing my favourite Disney song of all time. I think a lot of people would agree with me too. I’ve found this classic has become so popular on social media, memes and in a lot of BuzzFeed articles. I love it for my own personal reasons however which I’ll explain down below.

I am of course talking about:

I’LL MAKE A MAN OUT OF YOU!

I’ve already outlined the plot in one of my previous posts April 5th-Who Is My Favourite Disney Heroine? so I won’t rehash it all over again. When Mulan enters the training camp disguised as a man, she knows nothing of combat and fighting. Through this epic song, we see her transform from weak to strong. She proves to her captain Li Shang and all her comrades that she’s a force to be reckoned with! 

Similar to yesterday’s post, I have included the link to the video and lyrics to sing along! 

Sing Along Here!

Let’s get down to business, to defeat the Huns
Did they send me daughters, when I asked for sons?
You’re the saddest bunch I ever met
But you can bet before we’re through
Mister, I’ll make a man out of you
Tranquil as a forest but on fire within
Once you find your center, you are sure to win
You’re a spineless, pale, pathetic lot
And you haven’t got a clue
Somehow I’ll make a man out of you
I’m never gonna catch my breath
Say goodbye to those who knew me
Boy, was I a fool in school for cutting gym
This guy’s got ’em scared to death
Hope he doesn’t see right through me
Now I really wish that I knew how to swim
Be a man
We must be swift as the coursing river
Be a man
With all the force of a great typhoon
Be a man
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon
Time is racing toward us till the Huns arrive
Heed my every order and you might survive
You’re unsuited for the rage of war
So pack up, go home, you’re through
How could I make a man out of you?
Be a man
We must be swift as the coursing river
Be a man
With all the force of a great typhoon
Be a man
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon
Be a man
We must be swift as the coursing river
Be a man
With all the force of a great typhoon
Be a man
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon
I honestly cannot think of a Disney song I love more than this one. It might sound quite strange but when I was battling with severe anxiety, I’ll Make A Man Out Of You helped me through. It inspired me to keep pushing no matter how deep the fear ran. It gave me courage to face the day and overcome my mental illness. When I listen to it now, I feel very emotional. I owe a lot of gratitude to this song. I also enjoy working out to it as it’s an obvious motivator. It isn’t just catchy, it’s inspirational. You can interpret it however you wish but ultimately it’s a power song that can instantly lift ones spirits and fill them with determination. That’s how I see it anyway. 
What is your favourite Disney song of all time? What makes it stand-out above the rest? 
Honourable Mention 
You’ll Be In My Heart from Tarzan 
I hope you enjoyed today’s post! See you tomorrow! 
Peace & Love xoxo

  1. I don’t think I can pick a favourite Disney song. I really do like A LOT of them 😀 The first song that came into my head was A Whole New World. I also really like Under The Sea as it is so upbeat. Also like Colours of the Wind. But Circle Of Life probably has to be the standout for me, and that scene the song is in is just so symbolic of what it means to be together and what it means to love. Growing up, my mum would play Disney songs (all the classics) in the car when she drove me and my brother to school each morning in Malaysia – the drive was always an hour long and we would usually go through two cassettes 😀

    Halfway there with your Disney Challenge today 😀 Hope you are doing well my friend x

    1. It was so hard to choose as they are all so wonderful. I love all the ones you mentioned! Circle of Life is epic! That would’ve been such a great childhood listening to all the Disney songs growing up 🙂 x
