Music Monday: “Let it Go” Covers

Happy Music Monday to all. As you know, the Disney’s Frozen has continually received rave reviews from critics and every day viewers. The music in the movie is bangin’, and the song “Let It Go” is particularly noteworthy. Since the movie’s release and increased popularity in the song, many covers have been done. Here are a few of my faves.

1. “Let it Go/Let Her Go Mashup” by Sam Tsui

This cover is by Youtube musician Sam Tsui, and it is so majestic. Tsui effortlessly intermingles the Frozen song with Passenger’s hit “Let Her Go,” without missing a beat. It sounds as if the two songs are actually one. This cover is so clever and Tsui sounds and looks so triumphant as he sings, I could watch it on repeat for a good while.

2. “Bet It Go”

This video is a mash up of “Let it Go” played over the scene in High School Musical 2 where Zac Efron leaps around the golf course singing “Bet On It.” This video is pretty close to perfection. The big moments in the song match the big moments in Efron’s cheesy choreography, making for a hilarious dance number.

3. “Let it Go” by Alex Boye (Africianized Tribal Cover) Ft. One Voice Children’s Choir

This song is so powerful. The African tribal deal humming in the background serves as a wonderful backdrop for this powerful little girl to sing her heart out. She looks like she’s about 9 years old, but she is so good! When the rest of the choir comes out, I can’t handle how wonderful it is. They sound so angelic and powerful and magnificent.

4. “Maddie and Zoe Sing ‘Let it Go’ from Disney’s Frozen”

This video consists of two adorable 4-year-old girls singing the song. Although many parts of the song prove to be difficult to understand, it is so gosh darn cute I can’t help but love it. The expressions on both girls’ faces are hysterical, and even though the don’t sing on key, they do a heck of a lot better than I would have.

Frozen

Happy Monday everyone! If you’re in the Indianapolis area, or anywhere else covered in inches upon inches of snow, I hope you are staying warm and safe amidst this crazy weather. The other day before this massive snowstorm hit, I saw the movie Frozen, and it was FANTASTIC.

In Disney’s 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics Series, they freaking nail it.  The film is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale The Snow Queen, and follows the journey of a princess who sets out to find her sister whose icy magical powers trapped the kingdom in a perpetual winter. In classic Disney fashion, there are quite a few musical numbers. With Idina Menzel as the ice queen Elsa, you know there is going to be some great singing. One of my favorite scenes was when Elsa is building her ice castle and passionately sings about letting go. It’s golden I tell you. Another favorite aspect of the movie was princess Ana.

Ana is sassy, independent, smart, brave, and beautiful. She is everything I want in a Disney princess, and more. She sets out to find her sister and proves she can hold her own in defending herself and her traveling companions in the process. Best of all, towards the end of the movie when she is told she needs an act of true love to save the day and everyone assumes it means a kiss from her one true love, she forgets that possibility and saves the day herself. GIRL POWER. I would of course go into more detail, but I don’t want to ruin the ending. Olaf the talking magical snowman is also a great addition to the movie. He provides just the right amount of comic relief.

Basically this movie is the perfect combination of funny, smart, empowering, musical, magical, and romantic. It is fantastic and you need to go see it right now! Or wait until the weather is better, and then go see it.

Have a great week, stay warm, and thanks for reading :)
