Oscar- and Grammy-winning duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez returned to write seven original songs for the Scandinavian-inspired sequel. You can praise or blame them for the tunes being stuck in your head or sung repeatedly by the little kids in your life. Queen Anna, indeed. The revelation-filled number is packed with important memories and also marks the next step in her mythic journey. The song gets even better and emotional when it turns into a bit of a medley.

Premiering in theaters all around the world in late November, the Frozen sequel awed all Disney fans with its unsurprisingly magical soundtrack. Daisy Finefrock December 20, It easily trumps the other songs with a soft opening with the piano and introducing the electrifying guitar. As in typical Frozen fashion, the song begins with somber tones and gradually grows to an upbeat and vocal-heavy performance. Through this song, we are able to see a more uplifting side to Queen Elsa and a look into her positive character growth. Everyone loves Olaf, the lovable, goofy snowman. Another hit song from the first movie was In Summer , in which Olaf sings about wishing he could be in summer but alas, he is a snowman. It is such a fun and optimistic tune but somehow When I am Older is even more exciting! We get to hear more vocals from Josh Gad whose voice fits perfectly in a Disney animation movie. It is even easy to see Disneyland making a popular ride out of this song alone!
This is arguably the most anticipated sequel to come from Disney animation studios. Few Disney songs impacted the zeitgeist, in the same way "Let it Go" did, so the songs of this new film are some of the most anticipated aspects of the sequel. Luckily, the music is a worthy follow-up to the original soundtrack. Like many musical sequels, you need to make allusions to the first film through music as well as the plot. While there are references to other songs, with "Let It Go" appearing in a later sequence, the only one listed on the soundtrack as a new arrangement is the small reprise of "Reindeer s Are Better Than People. In the first film, this was nothing more than a sweet little presentation of the friendship between Kristoff and Reindeer Sven. In this film, it's used to show the power of that friendship during a rough time for Kristoff. Sadly, as its nothing more than a reprise of an older song, it had to be listed last. It has nothing wrong with it musically, but it is nothing more than a repeat of a previous number. This is one of the songs within the film that doubles as in world music apart from the traditional musical numbers.
