I. “You Know Better Than I” from Joseph: King of Dreams 
This song, written by John Bucchino and performed by David Campbell, is from the straight-to-video animated film Joseph: King of Dreams. The song is inspirational and feels very personal. It is sung by Joseph when he finds himself near to despair and at the lowest point in his life. He has to start from the very beginning again and build his life anew. The faith and trust in God enable him to do that. The animation is often compared negatively to the great animation The Prince of Egypt , but the comparison is a bit unjust and Joseph: King of Dream should stand on its own as that that has many strong points, including the amazing dream sequences and this wonderful song.
II. “God Help the Outcasts” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame 
This beautiful song is written by Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast) and Stephen Schwartz. Praised by critics upon the animation release, who “promised” it the Academy Award nomination, the song is “a sombre hymn” of the gypsy girl who is asking God to help her people and give them the strength to face racist and discriminatory policies employed by the most powerful men in Paris. Only the song was not nominated in the category of the Best Song by the Academy, and soon, rather unjustly, “delegated” to a more or less mediocre position. The song is melodic and very moving, conveying the sheer heartache of Esmeralda regarding the plight of her people. There is both immense sadness and notes of hope in the singer’s voice as she tries to communicate her wish that will see people coming out of oppression and poverty. The best part of the song probably begins when the chorus starts to accompany Esmeralda’s voice.
III. “In the Dark of the Night” from Anastasia 
“In the Dark of the Night ” was written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Rasputin (Christopher Lloyd/Jim Cummings) sings his villainy song, threatening Anastasia with violence and retribution. It is very surprising that this song is not appreciated more and was even deemed to be “unpopular”. It is creative, making Rasputin a more interesting character in the film, and has a catchy rhythm with a majestic sweep (plus hints of the Russian waltz), making it a memorable melody. The chorus is particularly good accompanying Rasputin’s voice.
