Let It Go is from the 2013 Disney animated movie, Frozen. The song is sung by the queen of Arendale, Elsa, as she is finally able to be herself. The song was also...
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've 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

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

Let it go (go, go, go go, go go, go go, go, go, go go)

Let it go

Let it go

Let it go

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 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
The cold never bothered me anyway
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

    My OpinionDefinitely one of the best Disney songs hands down. Same goes for the movie itself. I'm glad they're making a comeback of having meaningful movies, that may even be more complex than it ever was before. And I say this while growing up watching Disney Classics.

    I feel like this can relate to just about anyone, especially if one has dealt with isolation due to mental illness or if they feel they're being rejected by their peers. I'm one of them.

    "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"

    Pretty much sums up when I realized what I actually got myself into for the sake of other people's gain. I didn't even realize it until it was happening and the very people who tried to make it seem like what was good for my sake went against me when I 'changed' and realized this.

    What I also love about the movie itself that it isn't all stereotypical about the princes and princesses and that true love only comes romantically (or 'the kiss') like how they first gave as the impression of it. In the end, love comes in all forms that may even be more selfless than the romantic love itself. Many people try finding that love romantically and think that's all there is.

    General Commentwow,no comment? okay- that first of all, this song is the best Disney song ever made. beats everything with one hand around its back. i think this song has so many interpretations i cant write it all in one comment' but ill try to make the most of it.

    this song is of course an empowerment song, but not necessarily a good empowerment. "No right, no wrong, no rules for me"- it could be an evil song just like that. sounds like jafar when he became a jini. with great power comes great responsibility,and she is still a child. she gave-up on her self completely. she keeps telling herself that shes okay with the cold\isolation and that she only needs herself. infact all the pepole were just keeping her down from herself. and we saw that around other pepole after the song she still couldnt use her powers. "let the storm rage on"- her feelings. shes basically a teen who didnt grow up because of a missed childhood, so now when she is an adult, she wants to smash her limits and explore herself. the church and the state were keeping her away from her abilities and imagination so now when she gave up on everything, she tries to built a new world for her, but she still cant let go of the past (anna). family is the most important column of our life no mater how hard we try to convince yourself. "the past is in the past"- only pepole who dont really feel that way say it, trying to believe it.
    another very important meaning is that humanity can climb up and be god, but only if we forget all the rules socaiety gave us. shes giving up on her queens outfit, witch symbolizes the monarchy + church + state. all the ideals which keep extremely harsh rules on all human kind only so we could live with each other. if we could forget about morals and use all of our powers. we could imagine everything and bring it too life. her powers represent human imagination. and when she put her white dress (divine color) and walked like a sexual person, shes saying shes free as an animal. when she climbs on the staircase over the pit, it means we can conquer everything with our imagination. and she make a palace and a snowman out of nothing, it says that we r the true gods of earth and we r the true creators.

    My OpinionGiven the crucial timing of this song within the movie, when Elsa's icy powers are awakened to their full extent, and finally she's using them not involuntarily, because she's afraid - but because she can, and she WANTS TO, I'm wishing the lines had gone more like this:

    Let it go, let it snow
    Can’t hold it back anymore
    Let it go, let it snow
    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


    The "snow" part reenforcing the barriers she actively creates to keep others out, for the sake of her personal freedom.

    This movie vaguely reminds me of Steven King's "Firestarter". Some of the same themes....

    General CommentIN MY BEST bravado. Let it go, Let it gooooooooooooooo


    Stop accessing my life, I never gave you permission. I couldn't care less about what your opinion is of me, you're a shitty person period. You violate all the laws of humanity. Leave me alone and find a new hobby. Stop wasting the precious gift of your life that you were given to try and knock sombody down because of your own issues, I' am not your punching bag or entertainment. Thats all this is about and ever was. You have no control over me or fragile and or fascinating mind ha. You have zero effect or influence and because this was always a game to you, you may have won many battles but you lost because 3 years later you're spending your life on something that has zero investment in you. Now move on please and skip rocks......

    My OpinionIn my opinion, and I am really sorry in advance to all those people who won't like what I will say.

    The song for me is about coming out to my family. The isolation is me and my feelings all bottled up inside with no one to confide. (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) I didn't want anyone to know so I had to keep it to myself. But I finally did it, I told everyone. "Now they know". I don't care about what people say I let it go. And (the cold never bothered me anyway) is just how I feel now that my father is very cold to me, he doesn't even speak to me but sin I have the love of my brothers and sisters and specially my mom, it doesn't bother me at all. Now I'm living alone, I can be me, and all those feeling are behind me and like the song says they really seem small.

    This is how I like to look at this song, a song that shows how good it feels to finally be who I want to be, not what everyone wants me to be.
