“Be Our Guest”- Beauty and The Beast

I am still on break from school (I know, my college gives us 5 weeks off). Thus, I am extremely bored and getting a bit annoyed by my parents. But a few days ago, my mom and I went to see a movie, and I now remember why I will always cherish her. At this point, a little back story is needed. When I was 2, my mother took me to my very first movie in theaters– Beauty and the Beast. A few days ago, we revisited my first theater experience by going to see the “remastered” Beaut and the Beast on the big screen together.

As we were sitting in the seats waiting for the movie to start with all of the young children squirming in the seats around us, all I could think of was how much my mother done for me since I was two years old. She has helped me with academics, friendships, relationships, and insecurities. Without her, I would not be preparing for my last year in college. Without her, I would not be graduating and pursuing my dream job. Without her, I would not have the self-confidence I have recently obtained. So, thank you Mom.

And since this is a music blog, here is my favorite song from the movie.

Movie Series #5: “Holding Out for a Hero”- Frou Frou

I lied. I told you I would feature another song from the Shrek soundtracks a few days ago but I didn’t. So I will do it now. I promise.

I have already featured a song by Frou Frou a few months ago but “Holding Out for a Hero” was the song that led me to discover Frou Frou and eventually Imogen Heap (solo act of the lead singer in Frou Frou). This song actually comes from the credits of Shrek 2, but is so much better than any song on the soundtrack. Imogen Heap’s range in this song is amazing. She brings an ethereal quality to the song that the original lacks. And I really like how the imagery in this video really fits the song…

Yes, I know that the song is basically a whole sexual innuendo but I think that’s what makes it good. Well, that and Imogen’s voice.

Other songs you like on the Shrek soundtracks? (If you know any other songs but if you don’t, you should also listen to “I Need Some Sleep,” also by the band Eels)
