It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small

收獲近十三億美元票房的電影魔雪奇緣創下傳奇,橫掃全球兒童市場,鑑於電影大賣,迪士尼已宣布製作魔雪奇緣第二集,冀再興魔雪狂熱。電影走出傳統迪士尼王子與公主的故事定式,令人拍案叫好,而電影歌曲悅耳動聽,亦是延續狂潮的關鍵。

主題曲Let It Go令人印象深刻,可謂膾炙人口,Idina Menzel的傾情演出把歌曲每顆音符都直灌進聽者的心窩裡去,甚至蓋過了獲邀演唱主題曲、名氣更大的Demi Lovato。Let It Go副歌瑯瑯上口,童稚皆能唱,更唱得深入民心。

Let It Go起始兩段均描寫主角Elsa的孤獨困境,寫景抒情,描述她內心的掙扎,然後就是副歌Let It Go之開懷,緊接就是It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small,當大家把注意力都放在副歌,如此妙句則被忽略。這句除了是描寫客觀現象,亦具哲理,歌詞巧妙地抓住物件遠近大小不同的特徵,說明放手後心情開朗,反而看得更遠更大,是形象的轉折,用得恰到好處。

其實視角的闊窄的確與情緒是有關係的,有研究讓測試者觀看同一幅圖畫,結果情緒正面的人,較容易看到整體布局,至於情緒負面的人,則向留意局部的細節,也容易忽略全局,因小失大。

這句歌詞正好打開了聽者的心理畫面,頓感開闊,表現Elsa轉換心態後的改變,開啟下面豁達的精神道路。如果把歌曲的推進影像化,這句剛好是把特寫鏡頭拉成長鏡頭,觀眾跟從歌詞,放棄局面的執著,迎向宏觀的天地。Elsa的開懷,也是聽者的開懷,放下自在,毋違我心,舒暢自然,全都是由此句而起。

魔雪奇緣的故事固然重要,但主題曲也是無可忽視的因素之一,電影的第二集能否再度掀起旋風,劇本以外,還需要一首膾炙人口的好歌。
