I am sure everyone has heard of this song, since everyone knows everything regarding Frozen nowadays. The song is of course a deleted song from Frozen, as it was replaced by For the First Time in Forever Reprise. As to why they potentially removed this song, I honestly do not know. Maybe they wanted stronger continuity, which is why it was replaced by a reprise, or they felt like this song was a bit too mean-spirited. I honestly have no idea, but I have to say that I prefer this version a lot more. After doing some brief research, they changed it for plot reasons, since this was in when production was going with a troll’s prophecy plot.
I like this song a lot more because it is more realistic. I interact with my siblings like this, and when we are good and when we fight, it is very reminiscent of this, and it is very natural. Anna starts with “We’ve been falling out for way too long, so let’s forget who’s right,” Elsa singing “And forget who’s wrong.” Both sing “Okay!” with Elsa singing, “Why don’t you stay, there’s room for family in my court,” and both concluding, “Cause life’s too short!” I know when I am trying to apologize to a family member, it goes like this.
When Elsa and Anna transition into arguing, it is something so simple. “What? I don’t believe you!” “I just assumed that you’d have to…” “That I’d shove on the gloves, that’s how your story ends!” “It does! It’s just like it was, except for we’ll be best friends” “So that’s been your plan ? To force me back in a cage!” A simple misunderstanding of wording from Anna instantly causes Elsa to be defensive, and they both return to their old forms. Insult after insult is thrown, and by the end of the song, neither wants anything to do with the other, and Elsa accidentally strikes Anna.
The score makes the song even more emotional that it already was, and I…… it is such a strong song, and it makes the film a lot more realistic, which I did complain about in the film. Just comparing it to For the First Time in Forever, this song seems more exciting, and leaves a bit of a bigger impact. Anna does have some resentment, and Elsa does have some issue with her sister as well. I understand why they cut it, but I was never really a fan of the reprise either, so a part of me wished that it was in the film. Either way, both songs do their job decently, but only one song can be in the film.
Well, another song is reviewed, and I should have the next post by Wednesday. Recommend a song if you want to, and I will see you all on Sunday.
