Four Colours of Love - Colors of the Wind - Netflix

“Colors of the Wind” is a song written by lyricist Stephen Schwartz and composer Alan Menken for Walt Disney Pictures' 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas (1995). The film's theme song, “Colors of the Wind” was originally recorded by American singer and actress Judy Kuhn in her role as the singing voice of Pocahontas. American actress and recording artist Vanessa Williams's cover of the song was released as the lead single from the film's soundtrack on May 23, 1995. A pop and R&B ballad, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Keith Thomas, the song's lyrics speak of respecting nature and living in harmony with the Earth's creatures. The song is also featured on the re-release of her third studio album The Sweetest Days. “Colors of the Wind” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 68th Academy Awards in 1995, becoming composer Alan Menken's fourth win in the category. It also won the Golden Globe in the same category as well as the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Movie. The song poetically presents the Native American viewpoint that the earth is a living entity where humankind is connected to everything in nature.

Dominick Suzanne-Mayer of Consequence of Sound praised the track for featuring “surprisingly cutting” lyrics, “pointed commentary on racism, and a dynamic, soulful performance from Judy Kuhn all in one place.” Time's Raisa Bruner deemed “Colors of the Wind” one of the “powerful, uplifting theme songs” from the Disney Renaissance and a “classic”. Jordan Appugliesi of Mic ranked it the sixth best song from a Disney soundtrack, saying that it is “a poignant, memorable ballad” in the vein of “Reflection” from Mulan (1998). Rita Kempler of The Washington Post felt that the “stirring anthem” is the song from Pocahontas which “comes closest to a show-stopper.” The staff of Billboard called the song “artistic” and “wistful” and ranked it the ninth best song of the Disney Renaissance. Writing for The Austin Chronicle, Hollis Chacona opined “Unlike so many film composers of late, Menken knows when to keep quiet and when to let loose his powerful score. That power soars through its centerpiece (and no doubt Oscar-bound) song, 'Colors of the Wind,' performed by Judy Kuhn.” Dorkys Ramos of Time Out said that the song and “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio (1940) are “at the top of our list when it comes to songs we don't tire of hearing again and again.” Spin's Andrew Unterberger criticized the track's “patronizing” portrayal of Native American beliefs, but said that “man...Judy Kuhn’s voice soars, with those little trills and sweeping highs. It makes it much easier to get behind what’s ultimately an agreeable message of environmental awareness and acceptance.” Aylin Zafar of BuzzFeed ranked “Colors of the Wind” the ninth best Disney song, commending it for “encourag[ing] people to appreciate the world around them and to seek to understand others before judging them.” Gregory E. Miller of the New York Post deemed it one of Disney's best songs and an “iconic hit” which is “flashier” than another song from Pocahontas, “Just Around the Riverbend”. Screen Rant's Turner Minton viewed “Colors of the Wind” as the tenth best Disney song and “an anthem about the harmonious nature of the shared world which embraces all races of people.” Charles Solomon of the Los Angeles Times viewed “Colors of the Wind” and “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2 (1999) as the only Disney songs released since Howard Ashman's death which “approached the standards” of the music from Beauty and the Beast (1991) and Aladdin (1992). The staff of People said that the track is “performed effectively within the body of the film by Kuhn”. CollegeHumor's Willie Muse wrote that “even though Pocahontas as a whole is completely forgettable, I guarantee everyone reading this knows every single lyric of [”Colors of the Wind“]. Beautiful to listen to and epic in its scope, 'Colors of the Wind' transcends the movie that birthed it to earn its place as an undeniable classic.” Janet Maslin of The New York Times deemed the song “heartfelt” but less catchy than previous Disney songs. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly stated that Pocahontas' “Alan Menken-Stephen Schwartz songs have all the flavor of uncooked dough”. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone criticized the song for its political correctness and for “sermoniz[ing] about ecology by using pedestrian conceits”.
