Why are some Frozen songs so timeless?
Posted On July 15, 2021
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard a Frozen song with an old-school Frozen-ish vibe, but that may be changing with some new Frozen-inspired songs on the horizon.
First off, there are new Frozen songs on Spotify that aren’t Frozen songs, like the original Frozen Christmas Carol, and the most recent Frozen song to be nominated for the Academy Awards, Frozen Fever.
Spotify also has an updated version of Frozen, called the Frozen Songs, and it’s being streamed at Spotify for free.
But what if we could go back to the past?
We thought we might as well revisit some classic songs that we know are perfect for this new generation of kids and adults.
Here are 10 Frozen songs that are perfect to be revisited as they become even more timeless.
“Let It Go” (The Lion King) The Lion King, in its earliest incarnation, featured a song that became the first in the series to feature a chorus that sounded like the lyrics of a children’s rhyme.
But the song that inspired this song is also an epic of its time, as it’s a love song.
It’s a song about love and loss, and how the love can never go away.
“It’s a beautiful song about an amazing person, it’s about longing and what it’s like to lose someone, and then it’s just a beautiful love story,” the singer, Peter Frampton, told NPR’s Audie Cornish in 2012.
“When you sing that song, I’m thinking, this is it.”
“The Last Time” (Frozen) The song that opens Frozen Fever is also the first one to have lyrics that sound like the words of an ancient Greek lyric: “I am going to go on the ice with you.”
And it’s even got a classic song theme: a young girl, singing “I love you” at a party.
But it’s also a song with lyrics that echo the lyrics to an ancient Chinese poem, the poem “The Story of the Three Young Men,” which is a poem about a young man named Sun Shihuang.
It is a very classic song, and also a very timeless song.
“I See You” (Hannah Montana) A classic Disney song with a modern twist.
“If I could see you from the stars, I would be so happy,” sings Hannah Montana in this classic Disney tune.
“But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, my dear,” she continues, “You’re so cold, you’re so hard, you’ll break my heart.”
And the lyrics have been re-interpreted to sound more like the lines of an old poem by the poet, Yehuda Bauer.
“Frozen” (Ariel) This song from Frozen is a modern classic.
It has lyrics that could be a reference to the lines from the old poem “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
But it is also a classic of its day, and is also about love, loss, friendship, and even death.
“So let me ask you one question,” the chorus of this song tells Ariel, “do you love me?”
And the answer is yes, Ariel says.
“We Are the Champions” (Brave) This classic Disney sing-along is about how the kids of Disney World in New York City overcame their fears and overcame their pain to win the Olympics in 1948.
“Do you love us, my little princess?”
Ariel sings in this sing-a-long.
The lyrics are a bit more modern and contemporary than the lyrics from the first Frozen song.
“Come Over Here” (Let It GO) This is a classic Disney theme song, one that was played at the Disney theme parks in the 1980s and 1990s.
The Disney songs of the 1930s and 1940s, which are all about love at first sight, were about people who are different and different at heart.
But in the 1950s, Disney changed the rules a bit and decided that if you sang this song, you were going to have to be a girl.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone” (Alice in Wonderland) This Walt Disney film has many classics in it, but this one, which was one of the first to feature an original song written by Alice in Wonderland, is a perfect song for a child to sing along to.
“This is the story of the two young men who come from the forest, and they are both so scared and yet so determined to make it through,” the lyrics say.
“Snow Queen” (Disneyland) This Disney classic was one that would have been a hit with anyone who grew up in the 1940s and 1950s.
But this song isn’t just about Disneyland, but about the future of children in America.
“A snow queen is a snow queen,” says the singer in this song.
And it would be a shame if we can’t have a princess in this world.
