Today a little girl was out shopping with her mom when I overheard them talking about a holiday quite similar to Halloween that we have coming up soon in Denmark. The little girl wanted to be Anna from Frozen because as she said “she is just like me, mom, so I only need a new dress!”
Let It Go from Frozen is one of the most important songs from one of the most important Disney movies ever made. It is extraordinary how it has captured the hearts of so many people, young and old, all over the world. Being true to who you are, no matter how other people might feel about it, is what really matters. Anna and Elsa represents the modern girl in every sense; there’s Anna, the awkward and carefree teenager who just wants to have fun, laugh, love and live her life. Then there’s Elsa who wants exactly the same but is afraid of being who she truly is. Am I right if I say that we all know how it feels to be Anna, but also how it feels to be Elsa?
The soundtrack for the movie is outstanding and it wasn’t a surprise it won two Grammy Awards last night for best compilation soundtrack and best single for visual media. If the future Disney movies are just half as good as Frozen, then not only will the many little girls and boys around the world be very very lucky, but so will all of us grown-ups (who’s still a child by heart).
I can’t wait for the next movie to be released and a new amazing soundtrack to be listened to.
Below is a video I have watched more times than I can count (and more times that I care to admit). I am not sure why, but for some reason it captures me. I don’t know if it’s because of the song, their incredible voices, the power behind the lyrics and melody, or just the simple fact that every time I listen to it I get goosebumps? How amazing is it that we can despite speaking different languages enjoy the same music? Music truly is an universal language.
