Why The Academy Shouldn’t “Let It Go”

With the Oscars coming up this weekend I thought it would be good time to spread the love a bit for one of the nominees.

With nominations for Best Original Song – “Let it Go” and Best Animated Feature, “Frozen” should do well.

As one would expect from a Disney/Pixar film, “Frozen” has turned out to be amazingly popular. With incredible animation, a great story, terrific acting and the songs… Oh the songs.

Between all three girls and Sal singing the tunes, I’m a bit inundated. But the music is just so good I can’t say I mind. Given the success of the initial theatrical release, Disney really hit it out of the park from a marketing standpoint with the “Sing along” release.

Yes we went, and yes we sang. It was a great time.

Our youngest wants to sing along with Olaf singing “In Summer”, Anna with “Do you want to build a snowman” and of course Elsa and “Let it Go” on the drive every morning.

“Let it Go” has resulted in numerous cover versions cropping up around the net, here are two of the best I’ve seen so far.

Let It Go – Frozen – Alex Boyé (Africanized Tribal Cover) Ft. One Voice Children’s Choir

Let It Go (Disney’s “Frozen”) Vivaldi’s Winter – ThePianoGuys

Time: Entertainment has a list of a number of other good ones, if you know of another good one please mention it in the comments so others can enjoy.

The image for this post is my own, featuring Sal’s sheet music for “Frozen”. Ironically it arrived during last week’s blizzard.

    1. Cool. Too bad Disney pulled the full version … Guess I will just have to wait for the disk release (can you say pre-order). The tangled vid someone posted in the comments on io9 is good too.
