So I'm doing a four part articles, reviewing three La Reine des Neiges songs:Life's Too Short, More than a Spare and We Know Better, then I'm going to write an article about all the deleted songs and compare them to the songs they kept in the movie.
I will start with Life's Too Short, as it's the most "popular" one, and I will be reviewing the reprise with it.
So do I like it? No, I l’amour it! This in my opinion, is my favori song out of the whole La Reine des Neiges soundtrack, I like this song better then the songs that weren't deleted from the movie. Sure, this song would be the one least likely be to fit into the movie out of the ones I'm reviewing (I actually think the rest of the songs would have an even less likely chance).
In my opinion these songs - the original and the reprise- had everything the movie was lacking. It included faults, a realistic sister relationship and a bit plus development.
See, my problem with La Reine des Neiges (Though I still l’amour it), was nothing was anybody's fault. It wasn't Anna's fault, because she had no clue Elsa had powers, it wasn't Elsa's fault, because she didn't have her glove, to conceal it. It wasn't even the antagonists fault, because, like Anna he had no idea Elsa had powers
But in the reprise the girls admit their faults- how Anna was so desperate to be loved that she never thought of Elsa and how Elsa regrets shutting Anna out. Which leads me to another problem I have with the movie that is solved in this song.
In this song, Anna and Elsa have a much plus realistic sisterly relationship. Anna was actually furious at Elsa for shutting her out and Elsa was angry that Anna wanted to bring her back home. No, I don't mean Anna yelling at Elsa for not letting her marry Hans, nor do I mean Elsa getting worried when she froze the kingdom. I mean they argued.
In my opinion this song makes both Elsa and Anna plus flawed, and the reprise makes for a plus realistic development. Anna, instead of being the sweet selfless person who would do anything for anyone was self centered, only wanting Elsa to come back so she wouldn't be alone, and instead of the Elsa doing everything out of fear, we get the Elsa who just doesn't want to be locked up again, and just flat out refuses to thaw the kingdom. The plus selfish part is she might have known how to thaw it- but it was never mentioned.
So I guess it would make sense it was not in the movie, with all the talk about the prophecy, but I do think it would be a good song to put in the sequel.
