Beijing’s 2022 Winter Olympics song sounds a lot like ‘Let It Go’

Tuesday August 4th, 2015

The committee behind Beijing's successful bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics released a collection of songs inspired by the upcoming games in Chinese city, and one of them sounds very familiar.

Several news outlets have noted that the song The Snow and Ice Dance sounds very similar to the smash hit Let It Go from Disney's winter-themed blockbuster Frozen.

Both songs begin with extremely similar piano melodies and build to big crescendos, but in defense of The Snow and Ice Dance composer, once you have heard Let It Go a few thousand times, it is basically impossible to think of any other song.
