In this vengeful tune from Disney's The Lion King
, the villainous Scar details his dastardly plan to seize the throne by murdering his brother, King Mufasa, and the young Prince Simba. Written by Elton John (music) and Tim Rice
(lyrics), it was inspired by the fervor of a Nazi rally, only instead of soldiers, throngs of hyenas are saluting their corrupt leader. "A song like that is meant to be funny and sinister," Rice told Vulture
. "That'll intrigue the audience."
