Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #129 – “Where You Are,” from Moana
129. “Where You Are,” from Moana
Is this our first Moana song? I think it is. This entire film got so overshadowed the year it came out, because people were (for some reason) obsessed with Zootopia. But this was the far superior film that holds up among the better (if not best) Disney princess films. The songs in it are just spectacular. This song acts kind of like “Belle” does in Beauty and the Beast, introducing the character and her surroundings and sort of explaining how she has hopes and dreams to get out of there but is stuck for whatever reason in this place. It’s very nice.
