Pearl Jam Let It Go tribute shows hit song's grown-up appeal
First it was children, but now it's their parents (including rock stars), too. It seems even adults can't get enough of the Oscar-winning song Let It Go from the Disney animated film Frozen.
In the midst of performing Daughter during Pearl Jam's concert in Italy on Friday, frontman Eddie Vedder decided to add a hint of Disney magic by incorporating a snippet of Let It Go. Children everywhere have been obsessed with the song since Frozen's release last November and, naturally, the track has crossed over to parents. Vedder, for instance, has two daughters.
Even before Pearl Jam's weekend salute to the song, a myriad of Let It Go covers, mash-ups and parodies have been created and shared online. Notable versions include parents happily singing the track, a Disney and Pixar mash-up, a Game of Thrones mash-up or that Lord of the Rings-inspired parody.
Still, one particular father named Joshua Elson created a version to detail just how fed up he is (he's undoubtedly not alone) from hearing the song day and night.
"Let it go, let it go. Can't hear it one more time," he sings. Elson's parody, posted back in March, has racked up nearly two million views.
Winter may be over and we're a few days into the summer season, but unfortunately for Elson and his ilk, it seems like no one is ready to let this song go anytime soon.
