It’s time to bring back old school review because I don’t know about you, but I missed those nostalgia feels. It’s the best way to start it off is the song that represents our childhood/eary-teens. It was the mega-group to top all-mega groups. Never again, did Disney Channel have this much star power. Here the video for your viewing pleasure:
“Send it On” was a released in the summer of 2009 as a way for Disney Channel to promote their newest initiative for the environment called “Disney’s Friends for Change”. The song brought Disney’s three big money makers together: Miley, Joe Bros, and Demi….oh, Selena Gomez too (Selena wasn’t in their league during this period). This was big for any Disney fan at the time. Sure, they had done “Disney Channel Circle of Stars” but this was with people who were actually popular.
The song itself didn’t mention the environment but had a powerful message with it. If you inspire other, they will start a chain reaction of inspired people. Stupid, I know but the songs meaning is a powerful one for its time. The lyrics pretty much fit any situation (i.e. same-sex marriage, world peace). The song and the music video are extremely well done, which is shocking for a Disney Channel song.
The only part of the song that really doesn’t work is the amount of singing isn’t equally divided between the six people. It’s kinda like they pull all the actor’s name out and went “Whoever’s TV show has the best ratings, they will sing the most and we’ll go through the line like that”. But this is proven false because then Selena would have more parts than all three of the Jonas Brothers due to the majoring suckages that their show “JONAS” brought. But I think it was given by who was more popular. Which is sad because Demi was way more popular than Miley at that point due to “Camp Rock” and “Sonny with A Chance”. It’s even sadder when you see Demi’s brackets and remember that she was self-harming…..
Overall, the song is a decent little ditty that has a powerful meaning. It’s pretty forgettable until it magically pops up and make you feel the nostalgia feels again.
