Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this soundtrack from Tangled is produced by the same composers who gave us the soundtracks for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast and is fine for little princesses. Mandy Moore sings as Rapunzel on a collection of songs that are fun, fresh, and sure to be sung happily ever after.

What's the story?

Disney brings the story of Rapunzel and her endless locks to life in the TANGLED SOUNDTRACK. It includes five original songs and a score by eight-time Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Enchanted) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid). Mandy Moore shines as the voice of Rapunzel, and Zachary Levi ("Chuck") sings as the dashing Flynn Rider. Tony-Award winner Donna Murphy, indie sensation Grace Potter, and funny guys Brad Garrett and Jeffrey Tambor also contribute to the soundtrack.

Is it any good?


Although the story of Rapunzel is a classic, this is the first time it's been brought to the big screen in an animated version by Disney. Moore captures the sweetness and energy of the long-haired princess perfectly, and Levi is a pleasant surprise as the voice of hunky Flynn.

"When Will My Life Begin" is the lead song about Rapunzel's long days in the tower and longing for a new life, and "I See the Light" is a sweet duet between Rapunzel and Flynn, who are both seeing life in a whole new way. Indie-rocker power-voice Potter presents her new song, "Something That I Want," as the end-credit, an upbeat, bluesy rock tune about setting out and getting what you want from life. Overall, it's a pretty magical experience for fans of the movie and fans of good music.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about Rapunzel. Do you know the traditional story of Rapunzel? How is this version different?

Good stuff!

I'm an absolute tomboy and hate princess-y stuff, but the Tangled CD is cool! My friends and I sing karaoke to it all the time. My favorite songs are "When Will My Life Begin?" and "I See the Light". Also, the song from the part with the thugs is kind of catchy, too. "I've got a dream...I've got a dream..."

There are great messages about going for your dream in these songs, but I think A kid might have to be around six to understand them.
