New Disney Princess song, "The Glow"  
Here's the music video for the new Disney Princess song "The Glow" by Shannon Saunders.

I really like how stripped it sounds, at least compared to Disney's usual manufactured pop stuff. The instrumentals are beautiful and I love Shannon Saunders's voice.

Lovely song but...I'd like to see more of Mulan and Pocahontas and less of Rapunzel. Is my bias acting up again? :P

Edit: Oh and also, does anyone know when we can see "it will happen" ? I think it's a song performed by all the girls like an updated version of "if you can dream". At least thats what I saw on wikipedia.

No, I get it. The video does seem a little heavy on Rapunzel and I only saw one clip from Mulan. But at least all the princesses got represented.

Wait, where was Pocahontas represented? I didn't see it. :/

She only shows up at 0:19. It's not much, but it's there.

It is not just you! There was SO MUCH Rapunzel in this video! I love her and everything, but come on... it almost seemed like the other girls were thrown in as an afterthought.

probably for her officially joining the Princesses, but yeah, definitely needs more of the others, especially Mulan and Pocahontas, who aren't even there...or did I miss them...

They are there. You just missed them. But as for Rapunzel's joining, it still doesn't really make it right to make her the most important figure in the video. I mean at least if you can dream treated each princess equally.
genforever246genforever246 on October 11th, 2011 03:22 am (UTC)
Yeah, it feels like it was HER video and the others were like backup singers. It also doesn't really help when Rapunzel is your least favorite Disney princess(don't kill me)....

So totally wish they had picked a different title. I know I am showing my age here, but "the glow" will forever make me think of this

Haha, thanks for sharing. :P I'm afraid I won't be able to disconnect the two songs in my mind now.

I didn't even watch the whole thing... and I'm scared to....

i like how it had each of the princesses in it, (even if Pocahantas and Mulan weren't in it a ton) but i dont like the song itself.

I don't know, just that it's kind of cheesy, but it is Disney Princesses, for Lord's sake, so I shouldn't expect it to be otherwise, and I'm more of an Indie Rock person, so, you see..... it's not in my genre of music. But I DO like Shannon Saunders voice and the instrumentals, as someone said earlier ^^

Shannon Saunders: The Glow
There's another version of the music video, with Shannon Saunders in it! (Love her Snow White' T-shirt!)

And here, Shannon performing the song live in Rapunzel's Coronation:

...um, the music video in the post is from "The Last Dragon", a martial-arts flick. :S Did the original video get lost and auto-replaced by one of the same title? @_@ (The Last Dragon is kind of epic, but I'm having difficulty thinking that was what you *wanted* to link to...)

Hmmm, it shows the right video for me. Do you live outside the US? Maybe it's not available in some countries.
madison_face09madison_face09 on October 22nd, 2011 03:41 am (UTC)
I guess I can maybe understand why Mulan and Poca aren't in there as much. Most people (unless you're like a die-hard Princess fan) don't know they're actually official, so it would make sense for Disney to show the ones everyone KNOWS are official, on merch, etc. But, I also think that they should make it so more people know they're actually princesses. I mean, you see Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, etc., on merch, but you've never seen a Mulan lunchbox, have you?
qlbunnies: mulan hugs emperorqlbunnies on October 22nd, 2011 04:02 am (UTC)
Well, there are some people who think they shouldn't be princesses. (Stupid people, in my opinion. :P) But it would be nice if they were included more. I think Disney is headed in that direction; a lot of the new stuff has all 10 princesses represented.
madison_face09madison_face09 on October 22nd, 2011 06:30 pm (UTC)
Again, I can see why. Something must irk those people about Poca being the daughter of a Native American chief, which isn't exactly royalty (it still counts though!) and Mulan's not even a princess at all (though I'd say her ties with the Emperor would help a little). But, I'm with you and I think those people need to move past that and accept them. Yeah, I've noticed that they're represented more, and I'm beyond happy :D
qlbunnies: princess and frog kissqlbunnies on October 24th, 2011 03:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think they're missing the point. It's not that we don't know they're not real princesses, it's just that we don't care and think they deserve to be included anyway. I'm happy with the new, more inclusive princess stuff as well. Disney must have figured out that I will buy almost anything with Mulan on it. xD
