Songs that remind you of characters from "A Bug's Life"

Does anyone have any songs that remind you of any of the ABL characters? I'll post some of mine later.

As you probably guessed a lot of mine are for Manny and Gypsy
Manny and Gypsy-The Starlit Hour. The Glenn miller version is the one i'm thinking of.
Manny and Gypsy-Enchanted by Taylor Swift
The entire ant colony-Change by taylor Swift
Gypsy-Wait and See by Elva Kellog. Its from an old fourties musical called The Harvey Girls.
manny and Gypsy-(This one reminded me of their act) Arabian Nights from Aladdin
I'll have more later

I don't know about songs reminding me of characters, but listen to first five seconds for the opening of Episode 25 of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and tell me it doesn't sound familiar.

I think Randy Newman's song for the film sums up Flik to the tee!
I'll probably think of some. I'll get back to it :)

There's this one movie soundtrack that always reminds me of ABL because I saw an advanced screening of the film and it still had some temp score, which included the main theme from A Bug's Life. Other than that, I can't think of anything right off the top of my head.

"On the Turning Away" by Pink Floyd summarizes the main theme of ABL quite well in my opinion:



On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"
It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud
On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night
No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?
"Is it all gonna be this interactive?"
