Positive messages

Fun, fluffy song talks about "getting crazy" but the lyrics never take things too far. "Lets get crazy! Get up and dance / take a swing, do your thing / it's worth taking a chance."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is the first song release for the feature film Hannah Montana: The Movie. It's a benign celebration of having fun and letting go of worries with safe lyrics that never taking the idea of "going crazy" too far. The video is also innocuous, filled with "make you smile" snippets from the movie and an impromptu Montana concert also from the film.

What's the story?

Although Miley Cyrus songs usually get a lot of attention, LET'S GET CRAZY serves double-duty: as a single release in its own right and as promotional material for the feature film Hannah Montana: The Movie, debuting April 2009. The song is all about letting your hair down and partying with your friends. Of course, it does reference the "leading two lives" premise, like other Cyrus songs with high-velocity lyrics like "You see me on the cover of a magazine, remember, things are always different than the way that it seems."

Is it any good?

Fun, fluff, fashion...these are all things that have become trademarks of the Hannah Montana brand. And with this release Miley Cyrus proves that she knows what the crowd wants and can deliver the goods. It's hard not to get charged up by the energy level of this song; Cyrus seems to have the chops and the magnetism to pull off anything. And although it doesn't offer any lyrical revelations or instrumental innovation, the song works perfectly to set the stage and whet the appetites of hungry Hannah fans. Take a listen and you are sure to smile.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how Disney promotes its movies. The music video for this song debuted on the Disney Channel at the Kids' Inaugural. How does Disney use their television channel to promote this and other Disney music and films? Do you think Miley Cyrus would be as popular as she currently is if she hadn't hooked up with Disney? Can you think of other ways Disney promotes its stars?
