You know it. You most likely love it. Surely a Disney fan as big as myself would go just as crazy as everyone else, right?
I am aware of the insane attention this song is getting. I’ve heard it on the radio three times in a span of 6 hours. How long does it take until a song can be declared “overplayed?”
Not that long apparently. Because Let it Go is one of the most popular songs in the history of ever. You can either love it or hate it but you can’t deny its popularity.
Now Frozen is one of my favorite films of all time and my favorite Disney films you’d expect a fairly positive review of this song. And you’d be right.
I don’t go crazy for this song like everyone else but I do believe it is one of Disney’s best. I am slightly sick of it by now but I don’t hate it.
The lyrics are well written except for lines like “the past is in the past.” Because I, of course, needed a reminder that the past is indeed the past. Thanks Disney.
The melody is catchy and epic that brings a hearty “HECK YEAH” whenever the chorus rings out.
The song does evoke Elsa’s joy of being free to do whatever she wants and leaving her contained life behind. It’s basically like a song form of “fridge you guys, I’mma goin home.”
There’s not much else to say about it. Not much negative comments. Let it Go is frequently referred to as the best song in the film, and I respectfully disagree. For the First Time in Forever is a lot better, in my opinion of course.
The difference is that, first of all, it has a lot more “HECK YEAH” moments, and it feels so much more like Disney. That’s what Disney is trying to do here; make it feel like a classic Disney movie like what they did in Tangled. Hearing Let it Go in a movie like this feels weird. It belongs in something like a Broadway musical…which is exactly what they plan to do.
In conclusion, Let it Go is awesome, though a tad bit overrated. There’s not much negative comments on this one so I’ll give it a 9/10.
