Frozen has been hailed as one of the best Disney films of all time, and its music has been something to marvel at as well, with the soundtrack becoming almost just as popular as the film.
The film’s song “Let It Go” has been nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe, and the song was partly what made the film such a delight to experience. In the film, the song is performed by Idina Menzel, who plays Elsa, the new queen.
Frozen is based on the fairy tale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderoson. In addition to Menzel, the film stars Kristen Bell as Princess Anna as well as Jonatahn Groff as Kristoff and Josh Gad as the talking snowman, Olaf.
The film has taken the No.1 spot at the box office on several occasions during the time that it has been in theaters. In its second week out, Frozen dethroned the powerhouse film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to take the top spot.
If fans somehow thought that the song could not get any better, think again. Disney recently released a version of the song that is a mash-up of the lyrics in 25 different languages. It can be a cool way for people to learn phrases in other languages, and a great way for fans to continue to relive the song in even more ways.
In almost unprecedented ways, the Frozen soundtrack has been continually climbing the Billboard charts, and it is currently the number one album on the Billboard top 200, right above Beyonce’s recent album.. Frozen‘s hit song “Let It Go” is also at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Jennifer Lee, the co-director and writer of Frozen, spoke about “Let It Go” and its importance to the film when saying “The song was so special that I literally had to rewrite a lot of the movie to support that song.”
Let it go. You'll never see me cry. Here I stand and here I'll stay. –Elsa (Frozen)

She also said that what makes Frozen so special is anchored from that song. It is also significant because thematically, it was the day Elsa became more interesting as a character. She wasn’t just a villain anymore, and it was the day she became somebody who you could really care about.
The video of Frozen‘s “Let IT GO” being sung in 25 languages has instantly become a viral hit, and the music of Frozen continues to gain attention. In addition to receiving nominations for best song, Frozen has already won the award for best animated feature at the Golden Globes, and it is likely to take the Oscar home as well.
