With songs from some of the most popular Disney Channel productions of the late 2000s being sung by an A-list roster of vocalists, Disney Channel Playlist is perfect for fans despite not aging overly well.
The best songs are the obvious hits that have continued to transcend pop culture, like Camp Rock’s “This is Me” and High School Musical’s “Breaking Free.” And some less remembered jams, like the atrociously written but instantly unforgettable “Gitchee Gitchee Goo” from Phineas & Ferb, are fun to revisit.
There are some songs that have mostly been lost in time though. They unsurprisingly come from the less favored stars like Jordan Francis, Mitchel Musso and Emily Osment. Even The Cheetah Girls’ entry is bland compared to their other hits.
Final say: Cool to listen to current stars’ early hits. ★★★☆☆
