Song Analysis: “Love Is an Open Door” sung by Kristen Bell (Anna) and Santino Fontana (Hans)

This post contains spoilers, so if you haven’t seen Frozen, stop reading now. Hint: see Frozen.

Everything in italics is not my property or writing. These are direct quotes and songs from Disney’s Frozen.

Song: Love Is an Open Door
Artist: Kristen Bell (Anna) and Santino Fontana (Hans)

 

[Anna:] Okay, can I just, say something crazy?

[Hans:] I love crazy!

[Anna:] All my life has been a series of doors in my face
And then suddenly I bump into you


Ironically, in this verse, Anna is the one twisting the truth. When she says “All my life has been a series of doors in my face”, she is actually referring to one door: Elsa’s. She has become so reliant on Elsa; she hasn’t understood there are more facets to life than just her sister. After meeting Hans, she realises “Hey! I don’t have to spend every minute of my life with my sister! I can spend it with Hans!” Remember, Anna is like a five-year-old child. She’s lived in the same castle all her life, she’s only had the staff to keep her company, and now, starved from attention and affection, she’s going crazy.


[Hans:] I was thinking the same thing! ‘Cause like 
I’ve been searching my whole life to find my own place
And maybe it’s the party talking or the chocolate fondue


He’s literally been searching his whole life to find his own place–his own place in the kingdom, that is, away from the other 12 of his brothers.

[Anna:] But with you…
[Hans:] But with you

[Hans:] I found my place…
[Anna:] I see your face…


Hans literally finds his place–his place to marry into the throne.


[Both:] And it’s nothing like I’ve ever known before!
Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!

[Anna:] With you!
[Hans:] With you!
[Anna:] With you!
[Hans:] With you!

[Both:] Love is an open door…


An “open door” usually symbolizes a new start or a different path in life. Anna is straying away from her sister and Hans is leaving his family and marrying into the throne alone.

 

 [Hans:] I mean it’s crazy…
[Anna:] What?

[Hans:] We finish each other’s-
[Anna:] Sandwiches!

[Hans:] That’s what I was gonna say!

[Anna:] I’ve never met someone-

[Both:]
Who thinks so much like me!
Jinx! Jinx again!

 


Of course, Hans is faking. It’s really not that hard. Disney song structures are pretty predictable.

[Both:]
Our mental synchronization
Can have but one explanation


[Hans:] You-
[Anna:] And I-
[Hans:] Were-
[Anna:] Just-

[Both:] Meant to be!


Meant to be? Sure, if you say so. Hans had obviously been planning to marry one of the Arendelle sisters, planning for so long, he had everything down to a science.


[Anna:] Say goodbye…
[Hans:] Say goodbye…

[Both:]
To the pain of the past
We don’t have to feel it anymore!


Anna can forget her sister. Hans can forget his brothers. Throughout the song, Hans is pulling Anna farther and farther away from her sister. By the end of the second verse, she accepts.


Love is an open door!
Love is an open door!
Life can be so much more!

[Anna:] With you!
[Hans:] With you!
[Anna:] With you!
[Hans:] With you!

[Both:] Love is an open door…

[Hans:] Can I say something crazy? Will you marry me?

[Anna:] Can I say something even crazier? Yes!


 

Do You Want to Build a Dalek?

Warning: This post contains Doctor Who spoilers after Series 7, Episode 4. Read at your own risk.

I actually saw Frozen around five months ago, but I haven’t got around to posting till now. River, after almost killing the Doctor (Series 6, Episode 8 “Let’s Kill Hitler”), has locked herself in her room, trying to protect herself from the Doctor and all others humans and Gallifreyans. I don’t own any of the characters or the song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman”. The only thing my fabulous brain did was mash them up together.

9th Doctor:

Do you want to build a dalek?
Come on, let’s go exterminate.
I never see you anymore,
Come out the door,
It’s like you’ve gone to Gallifrey!

We used to be  best buddies,
And now we’re not,
I wish you would tell me why!
Do you want to build a dalek?
It doesn’t have to be a dalek.
River:

Go away, Doctor.
Doctor:

Okay, bye.

Time passes and the Doctor is in his 10th regeneration.

10th Doctor:

Do you want to build a dalek?
Or eat fish custard in bed?
I think some company is overdue,
I’ve started talking to
The doctors in my head
(Hang in there, Rose)

It gets a little lonely
All these empty rooms,
Watching the hours tick by
(Tick-tock, tick-tock, the clock ticks backwards)

River’s room is destroyed. Regeneration energy swirls around. 
River:

I’m scared! It’s getting stronger!
Rory:

Getting upset only makes it worse. Calm down.

Rory, with Amy by his side, leans in to console River.

River:

No! Don’t touch me! Please. I don’t want to hurt you.

Rory and Amy prepare to go on a journey to New York City for some reason.

Doctor:

See you in two weeks.

River:

(voice breaking) Do you have to go?

Rory:

You’ll be fine, River.

Rory and Amy board the TARDIS and we see the it caught in a time vortex. In a graveyard, a Weeping Angel zaps Rory back in time. Amy, teary-faced, says her final goodbye to the Doctor (“Wait, isn’t the Doctor in Arendelle?” Um, time travel) and dies.  A curtain is drawn over a painting of Amy and Rory. The Doctor stands alone, clothed in black, at the very graveyard where they died.

11th Doctor:

River? Please, I know you’re in there.
People are asking where you’ve been
They say have courage,
and I’m trying to,
I’m right out here for you
Just let me in

We only have each other
It’s just you and me
What’re we going to do?
(voice cracking ) Do you want to build a snowman?
