The Ultimate Disney Playlist for Shoveling Snow

We've got a lot of snow in the forecast for tomorrow. A LOT! What better way to laugh in Mother Nature's face than to put together the ultimate Disney playlist for shoveling snow? 

If you're really digging what you're reading, click on the links to go to the songs in iTunes.

The Playlist

1. Dig a Little Deeper (The Princess and The Frog)
It doesn't get any better than this. Hit play the moment the shovel hits your hand.

2. There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (Carousel of Progress)
Tomorrow's just a dream away... and hopefully there's less snow in the forecast.

3. Heigh-Ho (Snow White)
Hey, look at you! You're like a crazy dwarf, and you, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig in a driveway the whole day though.

4. Put on Your Sunday Clothes (Wall-e)
Or better yet, "Put on Your Shoveling Clothes." Out there, there's a world outside of Yonkers. Now if you could only just see the sidewalk, Barnaby.

5. If I Didn't Have You (Monsters, Inc., Disneymania Vol. 6 version)
One of my favorites, snow or not. Dance a little and feel appreciated. Big guy, you always come through.

6. That's How You Know (Enchanted, Disneymania Vol. 6 version)
You just spent an hour or two shoveling. That's how she knows you really, really, truly love her.

7. Just Keep Swimming (Finding Nemo the Musical)
Just keep shoveling, just keep shoveling. Life isn't all that grim... Look there's a shiny thing!

8. The Glory Days (The Incredibles)
Go ahead, feel like a superhero. For some of us, this might be as close as it gets to being heroic.

9. Real Gone (Cars)
Seriously. Get. Out. Of. Here. Snow.

10. One Step Closer (The Little Mermaid original Broadway Cast Recording)
And every little step
Every single step
Is one step closer
To finishing shoveling!

11. On My Way (Brother Bear)
Situate this one in the middle of the playlist, just when you need an inspiration to keep moving forward.

12. The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room (Disney Block Party version)
Being welcomed to a tropical hideaway is exactly what the doctor ordered. My favorite toe-tapping rendition for snow shoveling is the one that can be found on the Disney Block Party album.

13. Give a Little Whistle (Pinocchio)
"Take the straight and narrow path, and if you start to slide... Bust out the salt!"

14. I Thought I Lost You (Bolt)
Conjures circulation back to your fingertips.

15. Proud of Your Boy (from Disneymania Vol. 3)
A reflective song, but deservedly so.
I've wasted time
I've wasted me
So say I'm slow for my age
A late bloomer, Okay, I agree

16. Super Cali [Boiob Version] (Disneymania Vol. 4)

17. I'll Try (Return to Neverland, Disneymania Vol. 4 version)
"I mustn't let them down now."

18. True to Your Heart (Mulan, Disneymania Vol. 5 version)
This version of the song puts some muscle in your back and bounce in your step. "When things are getting crazy, and you don't know where to start..."

19. Something There (Beauty and The Beast)
Granted, the something that is there is SNOW, but this song also conjures up memories of the playful snowball scene from the animated classic.

20. Go the Distance (Hercules)

21. Everybody Has a Laughing Place (Song of the South)
Take a frown, turn it upside down and you'll find yours I know ho ho.

22. Chim Chim Cheree (Mary Poppins)
Sweep, shovel. It's all the same, right?

23. Out There (Hunchback of Notre Dame)
You're there.

24. Celebrate You (Disney Parks - download it for free!)
Shoveling. It's the time of your life, is it not?

25. He's a Pirate (Pirates of the Caribbean)
Play this one as your end credits. You earned it.
