Music Mondays: 44 Best Disney Channel Songs Ranked

Disney Channel’s prime, 2001-2010, is fondly remembered as the time in our life when we worried more about when Troy and Gabriella would finally kiss instead of when we’d study for our next midterm.

The High School Musical 10-year reunion on January 20 made me pause and reminisce on how great the soundtrack of our childhood was, and it inspired me to gather the best songs the prime period had to offer. Check out my ranking of the all-time best songs from Disney Channel shows and movies from 2001-2010.

(P.S. The top 10 were extremely hard to rank.)   

(P.P.S. If you’re going through the songs and find yourself asking, “Wait a second – where’s ‘Dive In’ by Christy Carlson Romano?” just know that I started with almost 100 songs and had to condense. Still love you, Christy.)

BTW, I made a YouTube playlist for your enjoyment – I used YouTube because Spotify is lame and doesn’t have all the songs. Enjoy!
