I know I'm late on this movie, but I've never seen it until Netflix just recently updated it on their website..... I LOVE IT!!

I love the heroine, I love how Dwayne Johnson's character fits his ego, and I love that stupid rooster XD

Anyways, in Disney movies there's always that one song that they sing that will get stuck in your head and you can't help but sing it every now and again. Sure "How Far Will I Go" did that to me, but there was another song that stuck to me a tad bit more.

On the original soundtrack it's called "The Innocent Warrior", and it's the scene where Moana was a little girl, leading this baby turtle into the water and the song starts playing when the water moves. So I bought the soundtrack, no shame mind you, and listened to it, but it felt like there was supposed to be more....

So I looked up the singer, Vai Mahina, on youtube and found the whole song.


There's lyrics in the video so you can read along with it.

Now here's the sad part. It's not really all happy and peaceful as the movie makes it. The story behind it is that it's in memory of the 19 young girls who lost their lives when a fire broke out in the Motufoua boarding school on the Island of Vaitupu, Tuvalu in 2000.

Here's the English translation of the song...

Let the tears fall down My heart is filled with sorrow For we have lost Many loved ones Let the healing flow over me and wash this pain away For we have lost Many of our young women It's hard to understand That 19 lives were taken And along with it The future of a small nation Let the healing flow over me and wash this pain away For we have lost Many of our young women Many loved ones
Let the healing flow over me and wash this pain away For we have lost Many of our young women Let the tears fall down My heart is filled with sorrow For we have lost Many loved ones Let the tears fall down

.... now go back and listen to the song again.

I love this song and I can literally listen to it on repeat for hours. There's not a lot of artists that make songs like this just for selfish gain, and that's what I'm liking about this song.

What did you guys think of it?
