Well, he was a singer at one time, I believe, so he must have had a knack for it.

Same here, those intimidating lyrics sung by Russa to the vermin make "If You Dare" my cup of tea.
Some of my faves in random order:

I forgot about the Awkward Squad. That sounds about right...

I'm not crazy about most of Brian Jacques' songs, even though he was an excellent poet, but there are some I love. "Goodbye, My Friends, and Thank You" from Martin the Warrior was one I heard in the audiobook and loved as a kid. Now I still like the song itself alot, but wish the singer was a bit better.
Another one that's absolutely beautiful is one I've never heard put to music from the book Eulalia.
"Let me wander here forever through the glades where once I played / Long ago in carefree seasons mid the noontide sun and shade. I will see again before me all those smiling friends I knew / Gone alas to memory's keeping, faithful comrades good and true. Oh, those days of youth and splendor, when we dreamed of glorious war / Vows were made to keep forever, and return back here once more. Then the clouds began to gather, winter came, we marched away / Singing songs of love and valor, off we marched into the fray. Comes a warrior returning through old autumn's gold clad trees / And the leaves do fall like teardrops on the gently sighing breeze. Casting sword and shield aside now, I stand weary and forlorn / In the silence of the woodlands, I shall rest until the dawn. Let me sleep and dream forever of those golden days of yore / And those brave and faithful comrades who'll return alas no more."

There are so many wonderful songs. :) But a few of my favourites are the Rose Song from Loamhedge, Goodnight from Mariel of Redwall, Ladies from Loamhedge and Hog Stamp Paw Clap (Don't know if that's really the name) from The Legend of Luke I think it is.

Mine is "What a Hard and Terrible Life" sung by Wonwill in Rakkety Tam.

To be honest, I usually skip reading the songs but I do believe I like that gory rendition Kite Slayer sang in Rogue Crew and the reactions she got from the hares for it. XP Shame she was interrupted for their commentary.

Oh, Rakkety Rakkety Rakkety Tam
The drums are beatin braw
Rakkety Rakkety Rakkety Tam
Are ye marching off tae war?

A warrior from the borders came
A buckler o'er his shoulder
A claymore swinging at his side
There's no beast who is bolder

Oh Rakkety Tam has sold his sword
Ah scarce believe he's done it
He swore an oath untae a fool
Who took his pledge upon it

I love that one. I think Rakkety Tam has some of the best songs in the whole series.
