If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I not sure if this has been done, but here it is regardless.
I think that more often than not a villain expressing themselves in song is the single greatest moment in most movies, whether their Disney or Non-Disney. They are either hilariously self-unaware, campy, or downright fucking creepy, and it's a nice breakaway from the mostly boring protagonist.

But if we're gonna do pussy show tunes (which most of these villian's songs are), this is the first one that came to my mind:
Followed closely with this if it counts:
There ain't nothing pussy about these! Fucking awesome, especially Rasputin. Lenin couldn't sing alto to save the Proletariat.
Fuck, I didn't even think of 'Night on Bald Mountain' being a villain song...
Yeah, and same with the Imperial March, although I didn't think of that either. Anything that sounds creepy works. Beethoven's Glorious 9th is a villain song.
