One song sends listeners off to never-never land, and the other encourages listeners to go and play in the snow. The internet’s loving a funny combination of a favorite kids’ song from “Frozen” with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” which has transformed the two tunes into a song kids of all ages can jam to.
This mashup comes courtesy of Kristen Bell and Dave Grohl, who performed together on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” recently with this musical number fans of either star won’t soon forget. How did this magical moment come about? Grohl told Bell he’d become the coolest dad if he jammed with her, because his daughters are huge fans, and she said she’d love to! “‘Snowman’ is like my ‘Highway to Hell,'” Grohl said.
Bell started singing “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” just like you heard it in the now-classic movie. But with Grohl at the drums, it quickly became a version we’ve never heard Anna belt out before. Bell got into the rock music from the band and, once she finished the song, she started in on Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.”
Of course, it wasn’t without an epic lyric change. Bell sang:
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the Snowman comes
Check out the full song:
What makes this moment even more surreal is the Halloween attire. Bell and Grohl were dressed as Tom Selleck and David Letterman, respectively.
Anyway. More than 1.6 million people have watched the mashup on YouTube, including us. In fact, after hearing this rendition of “Snowman,” the wait for “Frozen 2” feels especially long. The sequel to the wildly popular movie doesn’t hit theaters for two more years, in November of 2019. But you can still get a taste of “Frozen” to hold you over this winter. Just head to the theater for Pixar’s “Coco,” and you can watch a special short movie before the feature presentation. “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” is 21 minutes long and features Olaf, Elsa, Anna and Kristoff, with four original songs.
And “Frozen” is hitting Broadway in the spring! The musical has 21 songs, and tickets are on sale now. Shows begin on February 22.
