I love the song It Takes Two from Into The Woods. It’s a song about how it takes two people to have a kid or a child, but also can be heard as it takes two to pull off a scheme, plan an awesome night out or even just cause trouble with a friend. I think everyone can relate to this song when you think about your best friend or someone who you absolutely love to see and cause trouble with.
We all had our best friend in high school or college where we would be excited to see them because the two of you would always have an awesome time. You would constantly pull pranks on each other or plan them for other people. You would be the first one in line to get a shot if they were celebrating and the first person to call their ex a b*tch or be there with really bad food ready to listen when they were upset. That’s why I love this song. It reminds me of my old friends and group where we were always ready to have an awesome time.
My old best friend and I were pretty much in-seperable and people were always confused if they saw one of us without the other. I think some people actually thought the two of us were dating or a couple for a while, until I met my ex boyfriend and they realized there was no way we would ever hookup…she was female lol. Most of us are happy that the days when we would go out partying until 4 and 5 in the morning are over when we had to be up at 7 or 8 in the morning for a final or school, but we love to remember and think about them. That’s one of the reasons I love this song.
I always think of my old friends and a few of my old best friends who I used to always call when I wanted to go out or ever got depressed. I know some of you are going to disagree with me that that is not what this song is about, but you can always pull the song out of the show and add it to a different one which can completely change the meaning. Feel free to leave a comment below with what the song It Takes Two from Into The Woods means to you.
