Disney releases song, “I See The Light” from “Tangled”

Walt Disney Animation Studios is making available a streaming version of one song from their upcoming film “Tangled.” “I See The Light” is written by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater and performed by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. “Light” appears to be the ballad duet love song of the movie, and is really the first bit of publicity for the fact that Tangled is a musical.

“Tangled” features five new songs and a score by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer/songwriter Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin,” “Pocahontas” and “Enchanted”). Lyrics are by Glenn Slater, a Tony® and Grammy® nominee for his work on “The Little Mermaid.”

“It’s always fun to go to the source material and find some hip, contemporary way to tackle that story and yet keep a timeless quality,” says Menken. “It’s really exciting to try new vocabularies. One of the first things I did was to read the story of Rapunzel and try to figure out what’s going to be fresh about it.”

Menken concludes, “Much of our process as songwriters on this movie is to say we need a particular kind of moment and ask ‘Can we build a highway that’s going to get us to that moment?’ There’s no more collaborative form. Our challenge is really to find the voice within the story that sings.”

    i believe that “i see the light” is an amazing song. i wonder if im just over analyzing or is the song actually about the sun…or enlightment itself. at last i see the light to me especially with all the sun symbolism is a direct homage to the sun and the knowledge we have gained about it as well as how we came about..just wonderin hope someone can inform me either way. thank you
