How to Really Let It Go

10 comments

Every once and a while, a song gets so big that it feels almost like an anthem.

And this year, the anthem goes to…. “Let it Go,” from Disney’s Frozen.

You heard it on the Oscars (and please, people, it really is time to let go of making fun of John Travolta, even though it has been fun), you may be hearing it on a Spotify playlist, the radio, coming out of the mouths of babes (girl children especially love this ditty!), or just plain old stuck in your craw, but the lyrics are intoxicating:

“Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door…”

And the song goes on, reaching a crescendo from the lips of an ice princess that is ultimately accepting who she is and what she’s capable of.

And here I’ll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway.”
