Many of the songs in non-Disney animated movies could stand up to, or even surpass Disney at its prime, yet these are the few that stand out. Not only are the melodies charming, but the lyrics pull at the heartstrings of audience members. There is no doubt that these songs are some of the best in animation.
“The Last Unicorn” is the ethereal opening of the animated feature, The Last Unicorn. The wistful song accurately captures the loneliness and longing the last unicorn feels – especially after she discovers love.
While many viewers today may not remember this iconic movie, it is one they should not pass by - especially where this opening theme is concerned. The tune is so arresting that it will float around in audiences’ minds long after the movie is over. It is a beautiful reminder of the pain and beauty of love and nature.
