I think this is my all time favorite song! It really connects with me.

Yes, it's a fantastic song. Not sure it's my alltime favourite Disney song, but probably in the top 10.

It's not even my favourite song in the film.
I prefer Steady As A Beating Drum & Just Around The River Bend for starters.

"We'll kill ourselves an Injun, or maybe two or three..."

And my favorite song in the film is Listen To Your Heart...but all four mentioned so far are absolutely superlative. I think Pocahontas is Menken’s greatest work.

The whole score is amazing. Very lyrical, fluid, almost dreamy.

Never seen the film so I'm only familiar with the pop version that was released of this and I don't like it at all.

The only Menken Disney I really like is his Notre Dame score, which I believe is his favourite as well.

I'm the complete opposite. I'm totally obsessed with Menken -- the best thing in the whole Disney musical history. Love it all, although HERCULES is a bit hit and miss.

That has absolutely the greatest score highlights he's ever written IMO, but it doesn't have the flow and consistency of his work (both score and songs) on Pocahontas. You really can't judge it based on the pop song.

Agree his work at Disney was fabulous and there wasn't a single blemish in a ten year span composing for Disney animated films. And he remarkably got better as he went along. Though I wouldn't say the best thing in Disney musical history. Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, Cinderella and many other classic scores are just as good.

Yes, they are also great, but to me, Menken outshines it all.

Thor and solium, do guys like Menken's LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS the film? I really enjoy that too. Menken is one of my all time favorite composers. Oh, I also love his MEASURE OF A MAN song from ROCKY V!

While Menken's songs and score are the best thing in the film, I still would probably call "Home on the Range" a bit of a blemish on his record.

I haven't seen LITTLE SHOP in years, but I like the album.

Menken is also one of my alltime favourite composers. However, I'm longing for the day he does something completely different -- like an urban live action movie or something.

I don't remember the songs but the score is great fun.
