TBT: Disney Stars Turned Musicians

More often than not, Disney Channel stars didn’t just grant us the gift of their acting capabilities. Most of the stars transitioned into music, providing our tween selves with many opportunities for jam sessions (solo or with friends). For all those who miss the music that they created, we rounded up some of the best music from the Disney Channel stars.

 

Aly&AJ
“Potential BreakUp Song”

Because nothing made that middle school break-up more dramatic than listening to this song with your best friends. Some other favorites from this sister duo are “Rush”, “Chemicals React” and “Like Whoa.”

Hilary Duff
“Come Clean”

If you say that you didn’t belt the words “let the rain fall down and wake my dreams” at some point during your childhood, you must be lying. Plus, this song is completely relatable to college students with the words “and going out is better than always staying in” so you shouldn’t be ashamed to bring this one back. Never be afraid to bring back “So Yesterday” and “Why Not” by our girl Hilary as well.

Jonas Brothers
“Year 3000”

Before One Direction, Five Seconds of Summer and the Vamps, there was the Jonas Brothers. This boy band took a glimpse into the future with this up-beat throwback. (“Don’t worry, your great-great-great-granddaughter is doing just fine”). For more songs from these heartthrobs, check out “S.O.S.,” “Burnin’ Up,” “Love Bug” and “BB Good.”

Miley Cyrus
“7 Things”

Before she chopped off all her hair and twerked on stage at the VMAs in 2013, we all knew Miley Cyrus as the Disney Channel sweetheart who led a double life as Hannah Montana on screen. In this song, Miley accurately conveys our emotions about past relationships–how post-relationship we begin to both hate and love certain qualities of our former significant other. Some other Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana throwback favorites include “See You Again,” “Nobody’s Perfect” and “Life’s What You Make It.” While sometimes cheesy, these songs have some sage life advice.

Vanessa Hudgens
“Come Back to Me”

On screen, she was Gabriella Montez, high school sweetheart to Troy Bolton (aka Zac Efron). While Hudgens showed off her vocal chords on screen with the “High School Musical” movies, off screen “Baby V” showcased her talent with her own album. “Come Back to Me” was a favorite from the album and we could only hope she was singing it to Zac Efron after their breakup in 2010.

Ashley Tisdale
“Be Good To Me”

Like her “High School Musical” co-star, Ashely Tisdale launched a music career. This up-beat song provides a simple message that girls today are still trying to convey–just be good to them boys. Two other great throwbacks from Tisdale include “He Said She Said” and “It’s Alright, It’s Ok.”

 

So, if you’re feeling nostalgic or just hanging out with your girlfriends, put on some of these songs and let the fun ensue. Trust us, it won’t disappoint.

PS. Don’t deny you “forgot” the lyrics to these classics. We all know you still remember them.
