Let It Go: A Literal Trailer Made By Disney

Hey! My chem teacher brought up a hilarious point yesterday in class. Basically, he said “If you listen to the beginning of Let It Go, it sounds like one of Tobuscus’ Literal Trailers. Maybe when the Disney producers came up with the lyrics they were like ‘HA! Screw you! Try making a Literal Trailer out of THAT!'”

Elsa during the beginning of Let It Go

So, first, I’m going to say thank you to Mr. Rose for another priceless high school memory. But next, I’m going to say that, now that I think of it, he’s kinda right. Hear me out. First, watch this Literal Trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The words / lyrics are below. I highly suggest watching it, or else you won’t understang the comparison. Now, here it is:

Introductory helicopter nature shot.
Bad guy at a safe distance
Second helicopter introductory nature shot
bad guy at an uncomfortably close distance (turn)

Careful Harry, he doesn’t have a nose.
Harry needs some sleep.
And he needs a nose.
And he needs some sleep.
And some new glasses.
And he needs a manicure.
Don’t sleep yet Harry, he’s gonna kill you LOOK OUT!

Spell, dodge, too many passengers,
dramatic turn,
how does that hold him up?
First time he touched a girl
Pan up pointy roof
Leaf bed look right
This movie is extremely important
Force field dissolves
Dramatically raise hand
That train is screwed
Slowly look left
This movie is the most important movie you will ever see
Back up in a library
Raise your hand and a wand
Dragon’s pissed, Weasley’s scared
Of a bunch of bad guys
but he acts brave while he runs.
You’ve gotta buy 2 tickets
Masked guy on a broom swerve
Run throw exploding
Running closer shot cast a spell
DUCK be careful with that stick too late.

Ok, time out. Oh thank god ok.
Catchin my breath. He’s grabbin his face, whatever. Ok go!

Dragon take off
People running
Downhill people running
Flex
Part 1 November walking
Chase that fire you wizards flying horse lizard
look out harry
Too late got him, help him Ron.

PART 2 July 2 BURNING
People Running backwards
Screaming
wave-hand upskirt
Windy
Kissing
Snape
cast spell
climb
look
blow up the town
Wizard lightning battle
Zoom huge shiny P
Then other letters come out.

Now, watch the movie where Let It Go is sung (the good version by Idina Menzel). The lyrics are also below. Pay attention from the beginning to 0:41 and 2:36 to 2:58. I’ve bolded them in the lyrics. Here:

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door

I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

Okay, do you see what I mean? Although it’s only small parts, ever since Mr. Rose told my class about the connection, that’s all I can think of. He said that whenever he hears the song that all he hears is the Literal Trailer, not Idina Menzel, at least not until those parts are over. I’m just saying, it’s a funny thought. And I do wonder how Tobuscus would do a Literal Trailer for those parts with totally different lyrics.

That being said, I still love Let It Go. It’s one of my two favorite songs, tied with Gone Gone Gone by Phillip Phillips. Anyways, that’s just something to think about.

The Most Awesomest Song Ever

Hey. So I got home later then I thought I would, then forgot about this post for a little while, which is why this post is just getting up now. Anyway, I normally change my favorite song every couple weeks (just a fun fact- I don’t believe I’ve ever said that before). But my current favorite song has been consistent for a couple months now. I swear, I first heard it on Grey’s Anatomy, but I can’t seem to find any proof of that, so maybe I’m going even more crazier than I normally am. Anyways, wanna know what my favorite song is? It’s Gone Gone Gone, by Phillip Phillips. I can’t stop singing it, and it’s been stuck in my head for forever! Not that I’m complaining, because I love it, but it does make it hard to focus sometimes, though. Here’s a music video, with lyrics, plus lyrics at the bottom (I’m going all out 🙂 ):

When life leaves you high and dry
I’ll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help
I’ll shut down the city lights,
I’ll lie, cheat, I’ll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well

When enemies are at your door
I’ll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
I’ll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well

Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me

And I would do it for you, for you
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

When you fall like a statue
I’m gon’ be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need

I surrender honestly
You’ve always done the same for me

So I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone gone gone.

You’re my back bone,
You’re my cornerstone
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving
You’re my head start,
You’re my rugged heart
You’re the pulse that I’ve always needed
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating

For you, for you
Baby I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
Baby I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You would never sleep alone.
I love you long, long after you’re gone.

Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you

And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
I love you long after you’re gone gone, gone.

Okay, I seriously got all of these lyrics right except for, like, literally two words. And by the way, the above lyrics aren’t mine. I copied and pasted them from here. But seriously, isn’t that song just AMAZING?! I LOVE it! It’s the most listened to on my iPod, I believe. Hang on, let me check…. Yep, it is 🙂 Anyways, I have to go study for my final midterm- Spanish. Which I struggle with. A lot. So, if you excuse me, I’m off to go struggle some more. Bye!
