Fun Find: Encanto Lyric Videos

This entire week has been brought to you by Encanto.  Ever since Eliot and I first watched it on Sunday, I've had the soundtrack stuck in my head.  I've given into it and Alexa probably thinks that's the only music she's allowed to play in my presence.

Working on posts for my blog?  Encanto soundtrack.  Cleaning the house?  Also Encanto.  Working on orders for our businesses?  Still listening to Encanto.  Putting the dishes in the dishwasher... you guessed it!  Encanto.  It's all been Encanto.

Like I said the other day, the music is so catchy.  It has a great rhythm and it's easy to dance to.  It makes me want to dance around the house all day while cleaning.  Of course, I wan't expecting anything less when I found out that Lin-Manuel Miranda was writing the music for the movie.  I knew it would be incredible, and that there would probably be some speedy lines that would be hard to memorize.

Luckily, Disney made some lyric videos of all the songs from Encanto.  I'm not going to share all of them with you today, but these are a few of my favorites from the movie!

CAUTION: Major Spoiler Alert!!!  Spoilers are ahead if you haven't seen Encanto yet!  Most of these songs help tell the story, so you'll definitely spoil some plot points for yourself if you haven't watched it!  Proceed ahead with caution!

The first song of the movie introduces us to the "The Family Madrigal" through main character Mirabel's perspective.  I thought this was a genius way to tell the movie viewer about each member of the family and their special gift.

"We Don't Talk About Bruno" is my absolute favorite song from the movie.  It is just SO darn catchy... Trust me, you'll catch yourself humming it randomly throughout the day like I do.  I can't help myself... I can't stop singing it.  But we don't talk about it.  Hehe.

Another song that really resonated with me was "Surface Pressure".  All of us have been under intense pressure at one point, whether it's from family members, friends, co-workers, peers, or ourselves.  This is another one you won't get out of your head.  

"All of You" is the final song of the movie where the ending is coming together.  This song also really got to me on a personal level.  Each member of the family is realizing that they are more than just their special gift.  And I love how they make Mirabel her own doorknob and she sees her own reflection looking back at her.  I thought that moment was so beautiful and it really spoke to me.

So, what did you think?  If you haven't seen Encanto yet, do yourself a favor and go watch it!  Lin-Manuel Miranda is an absolute genius with his lyrics.  These songs are incredible!  Plus, they remind me a lot of Hamilton (which he also wrote).  I had to listen to that soundtrack over and over again until I learned all of the lyrics.

I'll definitely be watching these videos on repeat until I memorize every single line!  °o°
