Song of the Year: LET IT GO (from Disney’s Frozen) sung by Idina Menzel

This is the song of the year. It should win a Grammy, an Oscar and, when the live-action musical comes out, a Tony. If you don’t like show-tunes, you can go.

I can’t stop listening to this song. So I’m going to put it here. This blog, it seems, is where I put the things that haunt me. She hides her true self. Everyone thinks she’s a monster. And so she chooses to live alone, in the mountains, with her super powers. Beautiful song. I guess I identify with her.

Frozen Queen Elsa

Presented out of context. (the context really makes the song soar), so if you haven’t seen Frozen, this is not a spoiler. But honestly why haven’t you seen it yet? This song is far and away the best part of it, but it’s still a really good movie.

From Disney’s Frozen. Written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and the amazing Robert Lopez. Sung by the incomparable Idina Menzel…

Let It Go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight,
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the queen.
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside.
Couldn’t keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see.
Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal don’t feel, don’t let them know.
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go.
Can’t hold it back anymore.
Let it go, let it go.
Turn away and slam the door.
I don’t care what they’re going to say.
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance,
Makes everything seem small.
And the fears that once controlled me, can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can do,
To test the limits and break through.
No right, no road, no rules for me. I’m free!

Let it go, let it go.
I am the one with the wind and sky.
Let it go, let it go.
You’ll never see me cry.
Here I stand, and here I’ll stay.
Let the storm rage on.

My power flurries through the air into the ground.
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back; the past is in the past!

Let it go, let it go.
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn.
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand,
In the light of day.
Let the storm rage on!
The cold never bothered me anyway.
