In a recent interview, Frozen director, Jennifer Lee, said she’s apologetic for unleashing “Let It Go,” the film’s ubiquitous anthem, on the world.
Unless you’ve been living on Mars for the past year, chances are you’ve heard “Let It Go” about 300 dozen times. It’s the song that every young child can’t get out of their heads and, as a natural consequence, adults are subjected to hearing over and over and over.
Lee spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and revealed that her interactions with parents, since the release of Frozen in 2013, has taken on a drastic change. “A year ago, I’d meet people who, when they found out who I was, they’d say, ‘Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time,’” she said. “Now they’re like, ‘Yep, we’re still listening to those songs.’ I’ve gone from, ‘Thank you,’ to, ‘Sorry!’”
Of course, “Let It Go,” sung by Idina Menzel, is a beautiful song, but a person can only take so much before they crack. In the end, however, Lee had the last laugh because Frozen went on to nab two Oscars – “Best Animated Feature” and “Best Original Song” for “Let It Go.”
In case you have, in fact, been on Mars since the film’s release, then here’s “Let It Go”:
