Colors of The Wind

Disney’s Pocahontas Soundtrack is a classic that most everybody has heard. This week I break down the beautiful childhood song, “The Colors of The Wind”. The instruments alone tell such a powerful story. It starts off with some strings and high pitch flutes to create a mysterious feeling. The beat quickly gains momentum as the story shifts to a teasing and flirtation vibe. By adding symbols and percussion during the climax of Pocahontas chasing John Smith around, the video gains a powerful and inspirational shift. Sure the lyrics are fun and catchy but the basis, for conveying a strong and meaningful message in video, is through unique and thoughtful music. A well proposed soundtrack speaks to the audience and creates an opportunity to touch the soul of everyone watching.
