When she accidentally harms her own sister, Anna, with the power, she is forced to spend a life of isolation, hiding the secret from her sister. During this ordeal, further tragedy strikes as their parents die in a shipwreck. When Elsa comes of age to take the throne, she accidentally loses control of her power again and turns the whole town into ice and runs away. What follows after is the struggle of the younger sister Anna, to find her sister and bring her home.
The song shows the naïve optimism and happiness of Anna for the coronation day. She is shown celebrating and roaming around the courtyards relishing over the fact that both sisters, who had kept themselves isolated from the outside world, finally get to meet and talk to people. The song shows Anna’s delight over the socializing. In the same song, when the third verse arrives and focuses on Elsa, Elsa is shown to have a completely opposite reaction towards coronation. She sings in a counterpointing melody, expressing her fear about her powers. The song is cut off in between in the end as Anna crashes into a horse.
The soundtrack is a fluffy and nicely light accompaniment to the scene that it is featured on. While the songs look perfect with the plot itself, on its own, it falls flat. While it is unfair to separate the music from the story, analyzing it is more important. The song has a few evident poor decisions of performance, for example before Elsa orders to open the gates, there is a ham-fisted pause, and then Anna follows it with meaningless harmonization. This makes the song go sliding downhill and land face-first on mud. The music itself is obstinately and ironically derivative, employing the use of a ballad with the combination of uplifting strings and piano, that seems as if it has only been made to sell copies. Disney sticks to its Broadway-like musicals which is clearly evident in this song as well.
Keeping the quality of the music aside, the song has its positive
