“Beauty and the Beast”, “Whole New World”, “Colors Of The Wind”, “My Heart Will Go On”, “Let The Rivers Run”, “Skyfall”, and “Philadelphia”. So hard to pick. Toss up. I go with BatB.

It is hard to believe that “The Prayer” from “Quest For Camelot” lost to “When You Believe” from “Prince Of Egypt”.

My pick is the song from Once.

I highly suggest reversing the order of your choices. With Coco, La La Land, Frozen, Sam Smith and Adele at the top of the list many may immediately pick one of those and not bother to look at the rest of the list.

Tough choice... My preferences are always somewhere near 1980's...

Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" by several miles. I do like "Hard Out Here for a Pimp" a lot, especially the version in the film that the actors do, and Bob Dylan's song for 'Wonder Boys,' too.  "Streets of Philadelphia" is sublime, though. 

Hey "NoPants" (or do prefer "Batman," lol, or something else?), are you a new poll author or have you just changed your name?... Because your poll seems like it was made by a pro. :). Bravo if you're a new poll author! (And welcome.)
