Music Theory Article about Let It Go
February 10, 2020 9:51 AM   Subscribe

When Frozen was recently released, I read someone's article analyzing why the song was so infectious from a music theory point of view.

I'd love to reread it but my google skills are failing me - can anyone hook me up? Something about the chord progression and each verse ending on an unresolved chord?

This is probably not the one you're looking for, but it was one I really enjoyed.

Also not what you're looking for, but Kirk Hamilton covered it in his excellent Strong Songs podcast.

This is a best visual summary I know that I actually no longer remember the source of, I just put it together into a single document that visualized the chords / lyrics / comments together.

Is it this? It's from 2017, not from the film's release, but it seems based on music theory.

in case it helps in your googling, the term syncopation should appear in any article about that song's infectiousness!
