The new Part of Your World

Perhaps you've heard of a certain song from Frozen called "Let It Go"? It is THE favorite among neighborhood kids here. They (including my two girls) congregate in the lane in front of our house and belt it out at the top of their little lungs. I got tired of hearing them fumble over the lyrics so I decided to just buy the soundtrack already so they could learn it properly. Now they congregate in the lane in front of our house and belt it out at the top of their lungs, WITH the accompaniment of our iPod + speakers. You're welcome, neighbors!

The popularity of "Let It Go" among the kiddie set reminds me so much of "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. I was about Miriam's age (8) when that movie came out, and I remember my mom taking me to see it in the theater, and then obsessively listening to and memorizing the soundtrack over the next few months. To this day, I love that song. It's so easy to fall into singing it; a simple "Look at this stuff. Isn't it neat?" will do.

It's clear to me that "Let It Go" is this generation's "Part of Your World." Do you agree? It's not as easy to sing (the vocals of that bridge section with the "frozen fractals" always gets a little wonky in our house), but the emotions are the same.

I know there are a million "Let It Go" videos out there, but this one is my current favorite. Enjoy.

Have you heard the Google Translate Sings version of 'Part of Your World'? Done by the same girl who did the 'Let it Go' one. It's pretty funny. Something about "disease of the sponge"....

I just watched it. HILARIOUS. My favorite was "disease of the sponge" but also the anticlimactic "Rooooooooad!" So great. Thanks for sharing! Here's the link for anyone else who wants to watch it.

I love seeing/hearing all these young girls singing Let it Go. Especially the "Q" girls. The weatherman's TV weather presentation based on Let it Go is also witty / amusing / entertaining.

I love both of these songs. And since this post, I've been unabashedly singing both of them at the top of my lungs. My kids keep begging me to stop, but I'm certain it's good for them.
