You know how they say villains always get the best songs? Especially in Disney?
Turns out they get the best songs for other villains as well. There are a whole bunch of Youtubes dedicated to giving other characters Dr. Facilier's "I Got Friends on the Other Side" to other villains - usually a spliced-together group of Disney villains, with the occasional other animated villain thrown in (I found one with Rasputin from Anastasia
and one with the priest from The Road to El Dorado
), but some with just one or two (Jafar, Hades, and Oogie Boogie, predictably, are popular for this purpose).
And for some reason I've found no less than three such AMVs for 9
, all assigning Dr. Facilier's part to 1 (which, since he's the closest thing to a villain with a speaking part and also has the requisite hat, makes sense). One is part of a series of 9
videos using songs from The Princess and the Frog
Here are a few of the best:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNBKascngS8
- The best of the 9
recuts I can find: 1, with 9 and 5 as Naveen and Lawrence (a conceit all three share, since one apparently inspired the other two).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcFeixIGCmM
- One of the better multi-villain cuts, though the song's been cut short. Ursula, Malificent, Hades, the Mirror and Wicked Queen from Snow White
,and Tzekel-Kan from Road to El Dorado
- Scar, with Simba and Zazu for Naveen and Lawrence.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2pt-EnZvNg
- Kefka from Dissidia Final Fantasy
, with Cloud and the Onion Knight for Naveen and Lawrence - warning, not for people who are afraid of clowns. A few other villains get faded in, notably Oogie Boogie and Hades in their Kingdom Hearts incarnations, and Sephiroth.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtHmXmBoc7Q
- As a special bonus, Dr. Facilier with "Poor Unfortunate Souls." It is, unfortunately, the Jonas Brothers cover and the video quality isn't the greatest, but it'sstill a fitting song, and a rock version of "Poor Unfortunate Souls" isn't actually that bad.
