Which Disney Princess Song Makes You Choke Up?
Ok tough guys. Let's all be honest with one another. I'm pretty sure every dude has that 1 Disney Princess song that secretly makes you wanna cry like a little b****. At least I hope I'm not the only one because I'm gonna look reeeeeally awkward standing here alone admitting this if you guys don't back me up on this one. Also, there are several Disney Princess songs that kick me in the feels for ABSOLUTELY no good reason. I have no idea why, but I gotta leave the room sometimes so my family doesn't look over and see a grown ass man internally singing Part of Your World along with Ariel while choking back tears every other word.
So there's number one for you. Part of Your World in The Little Mermaid. There, I said it. I guess somewhere deep inside me, rests a 16 year old girl with fins for legs who resents her father for not letting her run away with some dude she's never met or spoken to, but for some reason, I'm still willing to make a shady deal with an octopus lady (with what appears to be a poop with eyeballs garden) that involves me never being able to speak again. Which makes perfect sense, because I assume this is somewhere around the 16th century where men preferred their women seen but not heard.
Number 2 on the list is Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas. Yes, I'm a 36 year old man and I know every damn word to that song and can't help but sing the living hell out of it every damn time I hear it. By God, deep down I have lessons to teach a pale skinned stranger from a far away land and for some reason we speak the same language, but if I'm gonna do this, it's gonna be in song with my pal the raccoon while we're cliff diving.
My third and final song is...Let It Go from Frozen. Now this one really does make actual sense. I'm well know for not being emotionally touchable. I keep anyone and everyone at arms length probably because I had a pretty rough childhood where I really couldn't trust any of the adults in my life, probably until I was about 9 or 10, and by that time I still didn't trust the adult who looking back, I now know I could have. I was probably one of the most angry kids anyone has ever met. It was a real problem for me. I had all this creative energy and never could figure out how to channel it. About the time Frozen came out, I was divorcing my first wife at age 28 and I took my son who was about 8 or 9 at the time to go see Frozen. I was doing a lot of soul searching at the time and really looking at myself as a person. I was realizing so many things about myself that I never admitted I didn't like. I was broke, didn't know how I was gonna pay rent, and here we are. My son and me, in a theater, watching a Disney movie which I was enjoying because lets face it, that movie kicks ass. Then BAM...Elsa starts walking through the mountains alone, after years of having to keep her sister at arms length for fear of hurting her, now she's finally alone and realizing she is enjoying it. She can finally let go without the fear of hurting the people around her...and I straight the f*** up ugly cried in public while listening to that damn song. I don't think you understand...people were uncomfortable...like people on the bus in The Joker with Joaquin Phoenix kind of uncomfortable. Lol maybe I'm sharing too much with you guys.
Please tell me I'm not alone on this lol. What Disney Princess song catches you all up in your feels?
