If you haven’t seen ‘Frozen’ yet, you really need to get to the theaters. It is an excellent movie and the soundtrack is awesome. It is one of the best Disney animated movies in years.
The original tunes in Frozen are as fun and infectious as the earlier Disney classics. Here are our favorites in order. How would you rank the list?
The movie’s opening number features a chorale of harmonizing ice harvesters singing about how much they love chopping up ice. The song is basically a giant warning about the dangers of frozen things. It foreshadows Elsa, princess of Arendelle, ability to create ice and snow and the rift that develops with her estranged sister Anna.
Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People
‘Reindeers Are Better Than People’ is sung by Kristoff to his reindeer Sven. Half of which involve his “reindeer voice”.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
This song is about how lonely Anna is and how she wants to spend time and play with her sister, Elsa. It shows her at different ages throughout the song. Just before the last verse of the song, her parents went off on a ship and you can see it capsize, their parents died, so the last verse is sadder.
Love Is an Open Door
“Love is an Open Door” is a romantic duet and Hans’ villain song for the film Frozen, sung by major characters Anna and Hans. Unlike most traditional Disney romantic love songs, this one has a strong percussion beat and is a bit goofier than most traditional Disney love songs.
Say whatever you want, but the trolls’ number is one of the best songs in the movie: the de facto “Be Our Guest” and the jubilant group number that’s going to win over the adults in the crowd as well as the kids. The melody harkens back to the great Disney classics, or the fabulously random gospel break at the end. I simply can’t stop listening to this song.
For the First Time in Forever
“For the First Time in Forever” is a song that was sung by Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel). The song expresses Anna’s delight at being able to see people again due to her sister’s coronation. Meanwhile, it discloses Elsa’s fear of accidentally revealing her powers to everyone.
Olaf, who burst onto the scene in a magical moment in “Frozen,” counts warm hugs among his passions. Olaf is known for his innocent view of the world, comic personality, and his ability to disassemble himself at good—and not-so-good—times. His catchy debut single will be sure to heat up the coldest of winter days.
Let It Go
In this clip from Disney’s “Frozen,” Elsa, whose secret powers have just been revealed, flees Arendelle and unleashes her magic, creating a breathtaking ice palace. Performed by the voice of Elsa, Idina Menzel, “Let It Go” is an original song by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Tony Award®-winner Robert Lopez.
