    Frozen song and happy are the two best sellers on iTunes. Frozen is the years best selling movies and many liked the songs in it. Frozen and happy are better then Taylor swift's "1989" album.

      Honestly, I think "1989" should have gotten first. Frozen got old really fast, but when you listen to "1989" it's like it's your first time hearing it for the the first time.

      In my opinion the Taylor Swift 1989 album is better than both the Frozen soundtrack and the song happy. I like frozen and there songs, there just not my favorite. The song Happy is okay... I guess...

    I hear people say that frozen is a popular movie. My little sister had a performance yesterday and her whole school sang let it go and do you want to build a snowman. My mom told me that people go far away just to see frozen.
