Disney"s long-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo is all around Dory, a blue tang with a memory disability who"s on a search to reunite via her household, who she has trouble remembering.

The tearjerker of a song is perfect for a tearjerker of a movie, which, as E! News mentioned, is nearly constantly the instance via Pixar movies. The singer quit by Ellen"s present to perform the song last month (dressed as a jellyfish, maybe?) and also the organize revealed that she"d personally asked her frifinish to cover the song. "I can not imagine anyone else doing this," Ellen told Sia after her performance. Sia confessed that "Dory"s story provides me teary," to which Ellen replied, "Dory"s story makes a lot of human being teary." Same. Only Pixar can make adults cry over a fish, a stuffed pet, or an imaginary marble-hoarding hybrid of a cat, an elephant, a dolphin, and a wad of cotton candy. I suppose, really.


Rumor has it that the song, written in 1951 by Irving Gordon, was initially titled "Unequivalent," however Gordon was asked to adjust it (good call).
