Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #34 – “Love Is an Open Door,” from Frozen
34. “Love Is an Open Door,” from Frozen
This is a perfect Disney song. The ‘falling in love with the prince’ song. It’s lively, it’s catchy, it’s just the right amount of funny while also having some great harmonizing and really cuts out a lot of unnecessary dialogue stuff. And really, that’s the genius of a great Disney song — they boil down plots and character arcs into about three minutes of song. In this song’s case, two minutes. It’s interesting how a lot of the early songs in this movie are really short. There’s really only about two songs in the movie that last longer than three minutes. The songs really do a lot in a little amount of time, and are really well-written alongside that.
