I (three) set out to discover why I find this song to be magical. By watching it.
erm says she finds it melodramatic, but she also finds Anastasia melodramatic.
I say, bring on the melodrama. Here’s why I’ve decided this song is still magical and melodramatic:
It’s visually exciting.
Ghost people in fancy dress are descending from the windows I am confused but I am also excited.
Dance, ghost people!
Anastasia’s outfit is on point.
Her outfit is basically in style, in 2016. Those ankle boots!
But as a kid I was pretty transfixed by her poor-girl clothes as well. As much as her face lacked the charm of Disney’s leading ladies, her outfit design had so much character.
Who even is this dude.
What I mean is, there’s intrigue. Who are you and why is this happening?
Then it ends.
And you’re left like… “what is this story” and not even thinking about the problematic realities of what actually happened here.
Moral of the story: Anastasia has great music but who thought this story was a good idea?
