  1. Hellfire

    "Hellfire" is a song from Disney's 1996 animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The song is sung by the film's main antagonist, Judge Claude Frollo, who is voiced by Tony Jay. When sinful thoughts regarding the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda enter Frollo's mind, he "panics and seeks to rid himself of [its] source". This internal struggle prompts Hellfire, which has been described as "one of the best Disney villain songs of all time". Frollo "confronts his lusting for Esmeralda...blaming her for turning towards darkness, and pleading to be saved". He sings "destroy Esmeralda, and let her taste the fires of hell, or else let her be mine and mine alone" while the image of Esmeralda "provocatively danc[es] in front of him". He "does not see any evil in his deeds as he does them in honor of God, even though the Archdeacon often disapproves of his actions". This "scene of lust and longing" that the song is centered around received much press coverage at the time of the film's release, along with the alterations made to give the film a G rating, and the facial hair of Phoebus.
