Nomination

I nominate Themoonlightreverie. You already know I love the way you portray emotions, I’m guessing you might have a great taste in music as well.

The Song

When I was setting out on my journey to learn Spanish (an ongoing journey, of course) I knew I had to find ways to learn more words. To imprint the language in my head and to develop a certain friendship with it. I’d read, listen and practice but then the best way to learn any language would of course be to sing in it.

And so I went searching.

That was how I stumbled upon this song from Frozen. I absolutely adored the movie, but I hadn’t paid much attention to the songs (I blame Disney’s visuals for that). The video was a sing-along, so I started to test the waters and sing in my head, mouthing the lyrics quietly before I full on sang my heart out.

I’m not much of a singer, and often shy away from singing if others are present. I’m also not very regular, with the effect that the higher pitches are difficult for me right now.

Of course, that won’t be a problem for long with practice. So I hope.

Every song that stays long with me has one thing in common. There’s something more to it, a certain spirit, than just the beauty of its lyrics or background music alone.

The urge to break away from the shell, to become true to oneself and embrace one’s powers – this song portrays all this so perfectly.

For all of you out there who are conflicted on whether to be true to yourself or follow the herd, this song is for you.

“Some people are worth melting for.”

(Since the Spanish version introduced me to this wonderful piece of music, I’m posting the Spanish lyrics here.

Lyrics

La nieve pinta la montaña hoy
No hay huellas que seguir
Y la soledad un reino y la reina vive en mí

El viento ruge y hay tormenta en mi interior
Una tempestad, que de mi salió

Lo que hay en ti, no dejes ver
Buena chica tú siempre debes ser
No has de abrir tu corazón

Pues ya se abrió

Libre soy, libre soy
No puedo ocultarlo más
Libre soy, libre soy
Libertad sin vuelta atras
Qué más da, no me importa ya
Gran tormenta habrá
El frio es parte tambien de mí

Mirando a la distancia, pequeño todo es
Y los miedos que me ataban muy lejos los dejé
Voy a probar que puedo hacer sin limitar mi proceder
Ni mal ni bien ni obedecer…jamas

Libre soy, libre soy
El viento me abrazará
Libre soy, libre soy
No me verán llorar
Y firme así me quedo aquí
Gran tormenta habrá

Por viento y tierra mi poder florecerá
Mi alma congelada en fragmentos romperá
Ideas nuevas pronto cristalizaré
No volveré jamás, no queda nada atrás

Libre soy, libre soy
Surgiré como el despertar
Libre soy, libre soy
Se fue la chica ideal
Firme así, a la luz del sol
Gran tormenta habrá
El frío es parte también de mí

  1. yes some people are so worth melting for! I love how you narrated this, I wish i knew your real name to give you praise and endearment, this was a favourite song for me too. the spanish version has so much more emotion in it for me. do sing when the feeling overtakes you. doesn’t matter if you are good or not, let your heart soar. you made me think of another song from an animation movie – Coco – I loved this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iDxU9eNQ_0

    thank you for selecting such beautiful songs!

    1. Wow, I’m so, so glad to hear that! I thought so too – usually when I come across the translations of endearing English songs I don’t take to them much, but this just touched me so. And the song from Coco, was just so sweet and touching! I’ve heard of the movie, but didn’t get the chance to see it, and now I’m so intrigued! The song has such feeling! Thank you so much for everything, it’s such joy speaking with you – like an entire experience on its own!
      Oh and by the way, my name is Gayathry!

      1. Coco was an amazing animation, the colours and photography were so different from others I have seen, the whole thing seemed to come alive. And the theme was so unlike other animations, it dealt with something real, with sadness and hope and also pain and struggle. I do so enjoy chatting with you too, you have opened up a whole new world to me. And Gayathry that is a very beautiful name, sounds like the sun rising.

      2. It seems like I really missed out on an amazing work of art then! I’ll have to get my hands on it soon, thank you so much for letting me know. 🙂 And thank you! It’s a happy coincidence you feel that way, because the name comes after a chant meter. I’m not sure about the specifics, but there’s a very popular mantra written in praise of the sun god, and it’s widely called the Gayathri mantra. 🙂

  2. Wow the song and the narration to get to it, so beautiful. I don’t know the language, but they say the language of music have no barriers, just a heart who understands is what’s needed.

  3. Ah, the way you write the simplest of things so nicely makes melts my heart. I almost cried when I read “Some people are worth melting for” (like I did when I watched the move when Olaf said it).
    I’ve heard the English version of it and it plays in my head every few days.
