4th year CSE students continue the project entitled ‘Why Music is so Important in Animation?’ in order to enhance the value of music in animated movies. The main objective of this activity is to analyse the lyrics and discover the moral that songwriters wanted to transmit, why the songs are performed in a specific moment in these movies, and so on. All the songs selected have been award winners and and have been chosen for their valuable messages.
In our second instalement, we are talking about the very famous I See the Light. It is a song written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 50th animated feature film Tangled (2010).
A duet originally recorded by American recording artist and actress Mandy Moore and American actor Zachary Levi in their respective film roles as main characters Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.
The folk-inspired pop ballad serves as both the film’s love and theme song. Lyrically, I See the Light describes the developing romantic relationship between Rapunzeland Flynn.
The song was nominated for the Academy and Golden Globe awards for Best Original Song in 2011. Subsequently, I See the Light won both the Las Vegas Film Critics Society Award for Best Song and the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Let’s listen to what the students say about the importance of this song and the moment in which it is used in the movie.
