List of Encanto songs
1. We don’t talk about Bruno
It’s one of the greatest Disney songs of all time. The song describes how Bruno, who has the gift of seeing the future, caused him misfortunes and estranged him from the Madrigal family. Bruno is the only son and youngest child of Alma and Pedro Madrigal. This Encanto song sees Mirabel asking her Aunt Pepa about her Uncle Bruno and explaining to her why they don’t talk about him and why he is considered the black sheep of the family.
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is one of Disney’s catchiest songs, and it suggests that Bruno is evil, but also lists other characters’ views on the villain.
The song was praised by music critics, with praise directed to the song’s rhythm, lyrics, versatility, Miranda’s craftsmanship, and the mystery element.
The song was also a commercial success and broke the all-time record for most credited singers on a Hot 100 chart.
2. The family madrigal
“The Family Madrigal” is the first song in the film and provides an introduction to the Madrigal family and their magical gifts. The song is sung by the characters Alma Madrigal and Mirabel Madrigal. The song was a commercial success, charting in various countries including the UK, Canada, US, Australia and Ireland.
The song was sung by Stephanie Beatriz, with a feature by Olga Merediz, and is one of Encanto’s best songs.
3. Waiting for a miracle
“Always walk alone
always want more
Like I’m always at that door
Want to shine like you all shine”
These lyrics depict loneliness and what it’s like to be a stranger. Like many other classic Disney songs, this one also features the main character singing their desires.
Waiting on a Miracle is a song that highlights how lonely Mirabel feels. It also shows that Mirabel doesn’t want to feel like an outcast and fit in with the family. The song has a strong voice and heartfelt lyrics, and while it’s not as catchy as some other Encanto songs, its impact is powerful.
4. Surface pressure
This song by Jessica Darrow strikes a chord, as it highlights the struggles that Luisa faces as she faces the pressure of being the reliable older sister of the Madrigal family. She possesses superhuman strength like a magical gift.
Surface Pressure received critical acclaim for its lyrics and vocals.
5. What else can I do
Sometimes perfection lies in imperfection! This same thing is highlighted in the song – after making a cactus, Isabel (Diane Guerrero) sings this song in Mirabel. Isabela is frustrated because she doesn’t always want to be perfect and wants to emphasize that it’s okay to be imperfect or unique.
It’s a gem of a song, at the end of which Isabela realizes that she doesn’t have to be perfect all the time.
6. Dos Oruguitas
This is a Spanish song performed by Sebastián Yatra and written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The title of the song translates to “Two Little Caterpillars”. The song is about two lovers who break up. The lyrics to Dos Oruguitas are in Spanish, but in the end credits an English version of the song, titled “Two Oruguitas” is also played.
The song has been praised by music critics for its production, lyrical value, voice, feeling, and production. It’s often considered one of Encanto’s best songs and even received an Oscar nomination for “Best Original Song” at the 94th Academy Awards.
7. All of you
One of the last songs from Encanto, it makes everyone deeply emotional as the song shows that Abuela and Mirabel form an understanding, and Bruno is reunited with his family.
The song perfectly encapsulates the development of the character and brilliantly represents “Family First”. The song is sweet, catchy, emotional and everything you would expect from a brilliant Disney song.
8. Colombia, Mi Encanto
This song is first played during an earlier scene in the film and is later heard over the end credits. In the first scenes, we hear it when the Madrigal family and the whole village are preparing the ceremony for Antonio’s gifts. Colombia, Mi Encanto is a tribute to Colombia and is not related to the plot of the film.
From joy to sadness, Encanto songs have a lot to offer. There’s a song for every mood in the movie, and the catchy nature of the songs has made the Encanto soundtrack popular around the world.
