    I guess it's fine lyrically but it hasn't exactly a chorus that I find myself singing along to or that gets stuck in my head for days.
  2. Yas Poor Unfortunate Souls is iconic and people are still loving it.

  4. I was going for a mermaid/fish thing but dammit that would've been better.

  5. Yeah, what I said earlier stands. It's not bad, melody's quite nice, but David Ogden Stiers can't pull off being a credible threat and it feels a bit more sedate than it really should.

    "Just Around the Riverbend" is still the soundtrack's low point, though. Total I Want Song boilerplate with nothing interesting about it whatsoever.

  6. I agree wholeheartedly, especially since what remains is Colours of the Wind and Savages, two songs that completely blew me away.

    In case people think I am calling out our lovely host, I am making a pun at the new Katy song, from which I had to think immediately.

    To be fair the entire soundtrack is pretty great.
    I even miss Steady As A Beating Drum and Listen To Your Heart a little bit.

    But yes, Just Around The Riverbend is excellent. Great melody, great vocals.

    You're all going to make me write Just Around the Riverbend commentary aren't you? As if I'm not already doing a bunch of things for this forum right now!!!

    If that song goes early I'm stealing all your voices.

  17. Yeah, I'd probably like that one more if the lyrics weren't so ridiculously on-the-nose. ("They're not like you and me which means they must be evil"? Come oooooooooon.)

  18. @Syzygyz I needed that high score for Let It Go because it's probably going to bomb out sooner than it should. Many people felt they had to make a...statement with their scores.
  19. Hiya! I meant to do this last night, but I had wine and got sleepy 'cause I'm a mess.



    Ma Belle Evangeline


    Highest Score: 10 x1 (@GimmeWork), 8.5 x1 (@Serg.)
    Lowest Score: 0 x1 (@Sideout), 1 x1 (@Daniel!)
    My Score: 6

    Aaaaand after a very brief foray into the 90s, we’re back cutting into the 21st Century again with The Princess & The Frog’s first loss. I’m sorta in two minds about this one leaving so early. I think the film is terribly underrated, but the song itself is a kinda wishy-washy little accordion waltz that only really boasts huge emotional power once you’ve seen the ending and I get the feeling a lot of you guys haven’t seen the film, so I think it suffered there. Ray & Evangeline’s impossible love is heartbreaking enough – he’s devoted his life and love to a star he genuinely believes is another, really far away, firefly – and the whole story is based on a Cajun poem titled Evangeline which is a nice touch on Disney’s part – but the ending… y’all… I first saw the film at a friend’s house with a bunch of people and I doubt they’ll ever let me forget the broken, sobbing mess I was by the time the credits started rolling. I mean, spoilers within:

    Just when you think everything’s cool and the good guys are gonna win as always, Facilier the creepy bastard comes along and just casually, effortlessly steps on little old Ray. It’s a sad, unexpected, weirdly gruesome end for your typical Disney sidekick, but it doesn’t end there. Oh honey. OH HONEY. At the end of the film when everyone’s celebrating, they look up to the sky AND THERE’S A NEW STAR RIGHT NEXT TO EVANGELINE SO HIS DEATH MEANT RAY FINALLY GOT TO BE WITH HIS LOVE AND IT’S ALL JUST VERY


    Ahem. I do enjoy the song too, for what it is – a cute, romantic, fairly inconsequential little number – and the legendary Jim Cummings does a great job as Ray, but the power to stand up to the heavyweights of the competition just isn’t there, so it was bound to go sooner rather than later, m’fraid. RIP Evangeline sis. You’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.

    GimmeWork loses another 10, saying “Absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking! Moved me to tears the first time I heard it!”, and eccentricsimply agrees: “The saddest love story of all.”, but Reboot isn’t feeling the love: “My heart is too cold for this shit.” Raichu calls it “More Lady and the Tramp realness. Not very original, but that melody is quite strong.”, while LKane makes a different comparison: “It is a pretty nice ballad. Kind of reminds me of Kiss The Girl.” Sprockrooster dubs it “The perfect slowdance song.”, clearly somehow forgetting about Jeppo’s All That?? Heathen. “Oh no, more talking frogs.” Mina complains, “And the creepy crocodile from Peter Pan.” HE JUST WANTS TO PLAY THE TRUMPET LET HIM LIVE. DJHazey has something in his eye: “Aww a touching moment of whatever.”, but MollieSwift21 is made of stronger stuff: “The scene and song are very pretty, but there’s not much to it.” Finally, constantino brings up everyone’s favourite questionably attractive music snob: “Salvador Sobral WHO? Amar Pelos Dois WHAT?”

    Good question.

  20. Me, realizing I'm not the only one who did Let It Go justice:
