      "I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service." 😢
      It's not even something she's wondering. That is what she is almost sure of.
      And the movie goes on to not just prove her right, but worse. People don't just watch as she buckles and bends, but they don't even see. They don't react. Not even Mirabel, who notices, intervenes and tells her it's fine, if that needless task of hauling a giant pot, doesn't get done.

    In a way, all of them are suffering from some sort of pressure;
    - Lusia has to carry everyone and everything
    - Isabela can’t be anything BUT perfect
    - Mirabel is trying so hard to be worthy of her grandmother’s approval but she doesn’t stand a chance without a gift
    - Camilo can be literally anything/anyone EXCEPT himself
    - Dolores hears everyone business and secrets
    - Pepa isn’t allow to feel anything EXCEPT happiness
    - Julieta has become the town’s nurse, whether or not she wanted to be. She also is consistently reminded by her mother that her daughter, Mirabel, isn’t good enough.
    - Bruno was blamed for all the bad things that happened despite him warning everyone about it beforehand.

      I find it interesting that the three, who had the least of an arc over the movie, were clearly the most content. Dolores didn't have many expectations placed on her, because her power is the most useless, so she mostly faded into the background. That was her greatest problem, as her love interest didn't notice her. Camillo mostly had fun with his gift, again, because his power was mostly useless apart from babysitting, which he seemed to enjoy. Julieta appears the most content out of all the people in the family. Probably, because she does enjoy being a nurse. (She did meet her husband that way.)
      Usually, the less abuela could make use of a gift, the happier people appeared to be.

    This is probably the easiest hint to Encanto’s theme for kids to understand. Showing a physically strong character who feels she must literally carry everything. The theme that a person worth isn’t defined by their ability to be of service to a community is nothing new but I think this song does a really great job of encapsulating that theme.

    Luisa is the character I needed as a child. Everything from her being a strong yet very feminine character, to the weight of expectation that her family and friends unknowingly put on her. Even if a family doesn't mean to, there is always going to be a child who for some reason, has more expected of them. Sometimes it's because they are the oldest and they need to set examples, sometimes it's a middle child who has proven themselves once and is now expected to do so all the time, and sometimes it's the youngest child who catches the falling pieces the rest of the family didn't bother with.

    • Nikki
      Nikki 2 months ago +6

      Ima be honest as someone who was the luisa in my family. You really dont want or need this. Luisa is obviously the type who carry everyone's burdens but never shares her feelings bc she feels like they dont matter. Im like that too. When you become a luisa you will mentally break yourself down til you don't know who you are anymore. You become a perfectionist, you begin to think about your worth "if this isnt right, ill just disappoint everyone around me" and bei g the family therapist too isnt easy as well. She bottles up her emotions and take on everyones problems, which caused her to blow. The stress of all tht can make you crazy. I lost hair bc of stuff like this myself or got physically sick. The worst part of it all, you still try to keep a strong facade spite all of that. Even if you're mentally dying.

      TheDoctorsShadow Shadow 27 days ago

      I highly appreciate her not sounding feminine because I am the sister who is well the tomboy but I don't wear any dresses or even put my hair in a ponytail. Ironically with my self esteem issues I am proud of my strength physically and mentally, and if I can't pick up/carry something heavy then I get upset internally. Mentally my anxiety/panic/dissociative disorders break me, but despite these since I am the older sister that can be told family issues since the one older than me has her own issues and a child. The younger sister is an adult too but she has horrible depression so my parents usually try to keep some stuff away from her.
      Yes I know I need therapy and I am working on getting into seeing one and this is one of the many things I need help dealing with.

    "Was Hercules ever like, yo do I have to fight Cerberus" is a line that sticks to me most. Not only is it something that can encourage you to face challenges but also a way of how someone can be forced into doing something they're not prepared for or desired doing but has to do because they have to prove themselves or show they're capable.

      Also somehow ironic, because he WAS. Fighting the hellhound in hell itself is an at least stupid choice, but he had to take it to the surfice, so he was like "Hey, uncle Hades, I kinda have to take your pet to my mom's cousin to not be casted to Tartarus alive. Can I?" and Hades was like "Alright, but you'll use a proper lease to not hurt him, here" so Hercules had to deal with a grumpy Cerberus not wanting to get out of home, but not actually fight Cerberus

    This is the first time I've heard this without the accompanying movie clip, and wow, the intro hits differently here.
    Instead of Mirabel's short comments, the early pauses are filled with deep breaths from Luisa. It hints much earlier that she's struggling to keep up this strong facade.

    Lyrics:
    I'm the strong one, I'm not nervous
    I'm as tough as the crust of the earth is
    I move mountains, I move churches
    And I glow 'cause I know what my worth is
    I don't ask how hard the work is
    Got a rough indestructible surface
    Diamonds and platinum, I find 'em, I flatten 'em
    I take what I'm handed, I break what's demanding
    But
    Under the surface
    I feel berserk as a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus
    Under the surface
    Was Hercules ever like "Yo, I don't wanna fight Cerberus"?
    Under the surface
    I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service
    A flaw or a crack
    The straw in the stack
    That breaks the camel's back
    What breaks the camel's back it's
    Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, whoa
    Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip 'till you just go pop, whoa
    Give it to your sister, your sister's older
    Give her all the heavy things we can't shoulder
    Who am I if I can't run with the ball?
    If I fall to
    Pressure like a grip, grip, grip and it won't let go, whoa
    Pressure like a tick, tick, tick 'til it's ready to blow, whoa
    Give it to your sister, your sister's stronger
    See if she can hang on a little longer
    Who am I if I can't carry it all?
    If I falter
    Under the surface
    I hide my nerves, and it worsens, I worry something is gonna hurt us
    Under the surface
    The ship doesn't swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is
    Under the surface
    I think about my purpose, can I somehow preserve this?
    Line up the dominoes
    A light wind blows
    You try to stop it tumbling
    But on and on it goes
    But wait
    If I could shake the crushing weight of expectations
    Would that free some room up for joy
    Or relaxation, or simple pleasure?
    Instead we measure this growing pressure
    Keeps growing, keep going
    'Cause all we know is
    Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, whoa
    Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip 'til you just go pop, whoa-oh-oh
    Give it to your sister, it doesn't hurt
    And see if she can handle every family burden
    Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks
    No mistakes just
    Pressure like a grip, grip, grip and it won't let go, whoa
    Pressure like a tick, tick, tick 'til it's ready to blow, whoa
    Give it to your sister and never wonder
    If the same pressure would've pulled you under
    Who am I if I don't have what it takes?
    No cracks, no breaks
    No mistakes, no pressure

      Although it's 'supposed' to be "self-esteem", "self steam" is actually a really great typo, haha. It sounds like a metaphor for "motivation" or "determination", e.g. "I'm rapidly losing self steam due to my inability to get out of bed in the morning". I might just start using it in conversation. xD

    • Ruby Kelly
      Ruby Kelly 2 months ago +5

      I don't perceive that line as being a good thing, rather reinforcing the theme of the song. She derives her self-worth from her abilities, her capacity to do things for others. Later in the song she mentions that she 'feels worthless if [she] can't be of service'

  • Face of Gaming

    I'm an older brother. When we were young, my sister and I were taken by CPS to live with our grandparents. I had to grow up quick even before that, because we bounced between living with our mother and our father. I had to carry her and stay strong, carry everything we went through so she wouldn't have to. This definitely hits in the feelings. Especially the lyrics "Under the surface" because I had to pretend that I was fine even though I was beginning to buckle under the weight of those burdens. It became a habit that I still live by to this day.

    I love this song. Sure the song itself sounds amazing but the meaning between each lines hits home. Being an older sister is hard because you get all these tasks to do and you have to stay strong, you can’t break. There are all these expectations placed on you *because* you’re strong and it’s ver pressuring. Listening to this song sort of gets me emotional, as silly as that sounds but it’s just because I can relate to it really hard.

      So do I, I'm the oldest sibling in my family and there's many expectations and pressure thrown at us older siblings. We're expected to parent our younger siblings while out parents are out, we're usually the ones to blame whenever a young sibling is hurt or is in trouble, add the fact that we're studying at the same time, etc. It's unexplainable how stressful it feels trying not to complain since it's taught that the fact we're "older" means we are "stronger" role models.

    "I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service."

    Pressure. It breaks you, and the fact that it's a main encanto song, shows how they care that it CAN turn a gift into a curse. Like luisa's gift, yes, she's super strong, but like she said, the pressure keeps growing, and as someone strong, she carries almost all of the burden in their family, she feels she is useless if she doesn't have her gift, but deep down, she's starting to not want to be the one to carry everything anymore :'(

    As some people pointed out it would've been really really easy for Luisa inner struggle to be her upset she's not more delicate, feminine or beautiful like her sisters. But no, she's proud of her appearance. Her problem is she wants to feel useful, be a strong, inspiring role model doing absolutely everything she can to help others, yet at the same time, she's slowly getting worn down from being the one everybody turns to. She wants to relax, let somebody else take over, yet at the same time feels like nobody can handle it except her. That She's the only one capable of keeping her family safe, even though she's exhausted

    "Diamonds and platinum, I find 'em, I flatten 'em"
    This line is amazing because diamonds are fragile and platinum is soft, so they are both easy things to flatten which goes great with the meaning of the song.

    Did anyone else start to cry during this song? Because I sure did because it mirrors my exact thoughts as the oldest sibling in my family. This song truly is the anthem for older siblings (or any sibling) who had to grow up fast and "be the strong one" for the sake of their family, even when it's slowly breaking them. This is one of the most relatable songs I've heard as of late and I think it may be my new favorite from this movie!

    This song really hit harder than I wish it would've. I'm probably about to share my whole life's story, I know it's a bit annoying to come across people commenting about their struggles like no one else's matter, but I guess that's what it takes to show how much I relate to this song.
    [TW! Abuse - read at your own discretion]
    I would say I didn't take the "big sister" role until my sister was born, but I would be lying to myself then, because even back then when it was only my almost-twin (he's a year and a half older) brother and me, I would be taking care not of my siblings, but of my parents. When my parents would fight, come to hurt each other, when my mom would pull my dad's hair and my dad would beat her up, my brother would ignore it, act like everything was fine, and to me that seems like the most natural reaction. I don't know why I wouldn't act like a normal person back then and avoid dealing with it, I just wasn't able to ignore it, my fear, my confusion, my anger, it always took the best of me. I felt like it was my role to make sure everyone was ok - well, as ok as one could be under abuse anyways - would stand in the corner, make myself invisible, and watch as my parents fought even though it hurt so much, tense and ready to intervene if it got out of hand. I never ended up doing anything. I was too scared and I hated myself for it, called myself weak and useless. Even when they would tell me to lock myself up in my room to avoid me witnessing it, I would keep my ears wide open, try to distract my brother, anything I could really. Then when my mother would be beaten up and crying I would hug her without saying a word, give her food or drinks and anything I felt she needed, and then go to my dad if he hadn't left the apartment to hug and comfort him too as he cried on my shoulder. I mean, honestly, all of that's so blurry in my head that I'm not entirely sure about the details, I just have a general idea of how it was.
    I was 11 years old when my sister was born and my parents broke up. Our cursed family luck went on when my mother got with my abusive step-dad and him and his son came into our lives. I couldn't live with the idea of letting my sister feel the way I felt, and I would do all in my power to be there for her and protect her from anything that would come our way. My mom and step-dad would fight a lot but between them it never got physical. But as time went on my step-dad started getting more and more willing to blame his son for whatever bad thing that happened between him and my mom and abuse him for it. And again, I would do all I could to protect him and my sister, to comfort them, to distract them, while still making sure nothing bad happened to my mother either, and at the end of it, I would feel guilty for not doing enough. While that was going on on my mother's side, I would also try my best to help my father who without my mom's financial help was struggling. I was too young to really help him money-earning-wise, but I always tried to make sure we weren't making him spend too much money on us, tried to prevent my siblings from using too much water, from asking for too expensive food or presents, from bothering my dad's roommates so they wouldn't leave and put him in a difficult situation.
    It only goes downhill from there really. Because then comes the fact that my mom and stepdad started to think I was old enough to help them with the house chores while also taking care of my siblings and keeping track of my homework (never asking my brother because they thought he was doing it half-heartedly and that he was simply bad at it), my mom got pregnant so I had to take care of her and replace her in doing what she wasn't able to do anymore, quarantine happened making it even worse, my brother was born, and at some point I realized that truly I was just being exploited. It was extremely hard, and exhausting both physically and emotionally. I always just accepted it and kept quiet, but really, it was hard. Even harder that everyone would just take me for granted and no one ever realized just how much they were asking from me. It's better now that my brother's gone for his studies and that the abuse issue has been taken care of, but it all has me scarred forever and I think I will never stop instinctively making sure no one feels left out and everyone is happy. I still haven't been able to get rid of the subconscious habit to keep half-awake at night just in case.

    I just watched Encanto for the first time and this song hit me in the feels. I knew immediately I'd be listening to it again, and again. The strength to the song, the acknowledgement that she wants a chance to be something lighter, and then buckling back down, because she never breaks. The contrast between the tough exterior and the "berserk" emotions beneath is excellent. Also, "the ship doesn't swerve, have they seen how big the iceberg is" really shows how the family is actively putting pressure on their kids. But before I articulated any of that, it's just super catchy, that beat!

    and C.) Almost everyone would relate to the message.

  • Damaris Aldana

    I like how throughout the song there isn’t really any pauses and the way she sings makes it sound like it’s hard for her to catch her breath (especially in the beginning you can hear some faint huffing and puffing) building emphasis on how worked up Louisa is. Her gift may not be the “coolest” or aesthetically pleasing, but her’s is the one that is most used/integral to the community ( apart from maybe Julieta’s). Idk how old she is but she barely steps a foot out of her house and everyone is asking her to move buildings and mules etc. The line where she says she thinks she worthless if she can’t be of service is honestly so depressing. She puts her back into helping the community the most and at the end of the day she’s under so much pressure that she doesn’t feel like she’s doing enough.

    I'm the strong one, I'm not nervous
    I'm as tough as the crust of the Earth is
    I move mountains, I move churches
    And I glow 'cause I know what my worth is
    I don't ask how hard the work is
    Got a rough, indestructible surface
    Diamonds and platinum, I find 'em, I flatten 'em
    I take what I'm handed, I break what's demanded, but
    Under the surface
    I feel berserk as a tightrope walker in a three-ring circus
    Under the surface
    Was Hercules ever like, "Yo, I don't wanna fight Cerberus"?
    Under the surface
    I'm pretty sure I'm worthless if I can't be of service
    A flaw or a crack
    The straw in the stack
    That breaks the camel's back
    What breaks the camel's back?
    It's pressure like a drip, drip, drip, that'll never stop, whoa
    Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip, 'til you just go pop, whoa-oh-oh
    Give it to your sister, your sister's older
    Give her all the heavy things we can't shoulder
    Who am I if I can't run with the ball?
    If I fold to
    Pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won't let go, whoa
    Pressure like a tick, tick, tick, 'til it's ready to blow, whoa-oh-oh
    Give it to your sister, your sister's stronger
    See if she can hang on a little longer
    Who am I if I can't carry it all?
    If I falter
    Under the surface
    I hide my nerves and it worsens, I worry something is gonna hurt us
    Under the surface
    The ship doesn't swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is
    Under the surface
    I think about my purpose, can I somehow preserve this?
    Line up the dominoes
    A light wind blows
    You try to stop it tumbling
    But on and on it goes
    But wait, if I could shake
    The crushing weight of expectations
    Would that free some room up for joy?
    Or relaxation? Or simple pleasure?
    Instead, we measure this growing pressure
    Keeps growing, keep going
    'Cause all we know is
    Pressure like a drip, drip, drip, that'll never stop, whoa
    Pressure that'll tip, tip, tip, 'til you just go pop, whoa-oh-oh
    Give it to your sister, it doesn't hurt and
    See if she can handle every family burden
    Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks
    No mistakes, just
    Pressure like a grip, grip, grip, and it won't let go, whoa
    Pressure like a tick, tick, tick, 'til it's ready to blow, whoa-oh-oh
    Give it to your sister and never wonder
    If the same pressure would've pulled you under
    Who am I if I don't have what it takes?
    No cracks, no breaks
    No mistakes, no pressure

They spent so much time leaving the big sister to deal with problems that they actually don't know how to deal with things anymore and don't even try to. and a ship in real life can't just swerve like that. and she's saying "has it heard how big the ice berg is" bc she can't believe that they just expect her to pick things up and fix everything and the others don't even try to scale the situation to see just how MUCH it is

Lin Manuel Miranda is a wonderful lyricist and his rhythm scheme is just perfect. The way this song ebbs and flows, and builds just to break down is so very symbolic of not only the character, but how anyone who has this pressure on them feels. Thank you Lin Manuel for this wonderful anthem for all the older siblings and those who feel they need to take on such a heavy burden!!!!

    As my older brother described, Encanto did the “strong female character” trope right (in immune (and his) opinion). Luísa wasn’t a strong female character, she was strong, female character. Having her feel like she needs to be strong both physically and emotionally constantly was a great move, especially when she completely breaks when her power’s gone. She didn’t even try to hold back. IMO, it shows that being strong is admitting when you feel weak.

      Strong female characters reffers to agency and relevance within the plot and more than surface level characterisation not physical strength

    When I heard this song I immediately texted my big sister and told I appreciate her. Our Mom died when we were teenagers and she didnt hesitate to step up for my brother and I. I love that woman to my core, she's the best big sister in the world.

    It's probably just me, but I LOVE when songs have so much emotion in the voice. I can hear her suffering and breaking, and it makes me feel like im the one in the song. Also the "under the surface, I hide my nerves and it worsens" part is so ADDICTINGGG.

    I LOVE this song. Listening and reading more then I want to admit! I must say I feel PRESSURE trying to get these lyrics down! I mean, I think it’s because they don’t rhyme and they always change! I LOVE the challenge but the PRESSURE! 😉 ❤️ 🎶

    Being the younger sibling and seeing my older sister carry our family's problems when our dad passed away, this is the realest song ever.
    I feel so sorry for everything she had to bear with no choice but she did so willingly and selflessly.
    "Give it to your sister and never wonder...if the same pressure would've pulled you under."
    I would have given up and got pulled under with what she dealt with, for sure. It's insane (even now) I feel so lucky and grateful for her.

      God bless you and your sister
      on her behalf thank you for understanding
      truthfully we don’t always get that genuine understatement a moment like this makes it worth the pressure and burdens we carried 🤍

      THIS OMG, WE HAVE THE EXACT SAME SITUATION. ever since my dad died last 2019, she shouldered every family problem even for my cousin's on my dad's family side, coz she's also the eldest granddaughter. I'm so grateful for her shouldering our problems, I may not be very vocal and affectionate, but I love my sister so much.

    Wow wow wow wow 😭😭 this song has me balling my eyes out. You can just understand through the lyrics that she not only has to be strong physically but also mentally. She always has that pressure to be the strong one, the one who can handle anything, the one who has to handle the family’s burdens and just act tough. It sucks that a lot of people especially the older siblings have to deal with that pressure. Pressure to be strong for everything and hide the pain until the pressure just gets too hard to deal with. Until it pops! I feel for those people. Life is hard and no one should have to act strong for everything. It’s okay to feel weak, sad, grieve, and whatnot. Feel what you have to feel, but then also feel happy after a while and move past it. Life goes on and we should too.

    This song is amazing. Besides being a great composition and great performance, it really spoke to me. I’m the eldest of 7 children in a highly abusive household (grown and out now), and I’d be damned if I let anything get to them-well, as much as I could.
