The Climb Song
"The Climb" is a song performed by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. The song was written by Jessi Alexander and Jon Mabe, produced by John Shanks. It was released as the main single from the soundtrack to Hannah Montana: The Movie; "Let's Do This", "Let's Get Crazy" and "Back to Tennessee" were previously released for airplay, but were not released physically or digitally. The song was written for Hannah Montana: The Movie, a spin-off of the television series to portray the struggles of the plot. The down-tempo song, "The Climb", has country influences and lyrically speaks about not giving up, no matter the circumstances of life.

The song has been critically appreciated with reviewers complimenting Cyrus's natural husky twang and native inflection associated with it. The song achieved commercial success by reaching the top ten in charts for the United States, Canada, Australia and Norway. In the United States, Australia and Norway, "The Climb" became Cyrus's best charting single to date. It scored the highest-charting U.S. single for any current Disney Channel Star and spent over eight weeks upon the top ten. It was certified double platinum by the RIAA in August 2009.[2]

The corresponding music video had Cyrus performing the song while climbing a mountain as well as involving scenes from Hannah Montana: The Movie. "The Climb" was performed live in a number of occasions including: Kids' Inaugural: "We Are the Future", Academy of Country Music Awards, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, American Idol, Good Morning America and more. In 2009, the song received a MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards nomination in the Best Song from a Movie category and Choice Music: Single; ultimately "The Climb" won both.

Music and lyrics
"The Climb" is a ballad in which the narrator laments the struggles of her life while remaining optimistic: "Ain’t about how fast I get there/Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side/It’s the climb". The song was remixed for country format radios in the US. The country mix quiets the drum loop, adds a violin loop, adds steel guitar, strengthens the guitars, and has newly recorded vocals by Cyrus for the first verse and first chorus.

The song is played in the key of E Major at a tempo of 80bpm. The vocal range is E3-C#5.[3]

Critical reception
The song received generally positive reviews. Heather Phares of Allmusic said that it is one of the best songs on the soundtrack and that the Nashville feel that this song offers "dominates Hannah Montana: The Movie". Phares stated: "Cyrus' husky twang sounds far more natural, more down to earth and grown-up, on songs like 'Don't Walk Away,' 'Dream,' and 'The Climb,' all of which recall the Shania Twain-lite of her debut album, Breakout.[4] Warren Truitt of About.com stated that the songs Cyrus sang as herself more "reflective, personal, and sentimental". Truitt mentioned that "The Climb" is an "epic ballad" and "Miley's serious attempt to break into the Contemporary Country world."[5] About.com's Bill Lamb rated the song three stars and half. Lamb stated: "There's nothing wrong here, but there's nothing particularly spectacular either. Hollywood Records is looking for a cross-format smash in both pop and country, and perhaps they will have it. However, Miley Cyrus' teen pop anthems '7 Things' and 'See You Again' are ultimately more memorable than "The Climb." This is all a bit too American Idol." Lamb said that Cyrus's vocals are solid, clear vocals and its uplifting lyrics are positive.[6] Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly mentioned: "the 16-year-old Tennessee native turns up her homegrown inflections, but a few elongated r's won't exactly shut out her huge pop audience."[7] However, Jim Malec of The 9513 gave "The Climb" a thumbs-down rating. Malec called the track "a syrupy and entirely unnecessarily [sic] power ballad that offers no substance and has been written many times prior under different titles but with literally the same itinerary." He added that Cyrus seemed to spend most of the song over-singing, but at other times recalled a young Tanya Tucker vocally.[8] Dan Milliken of Country Universe gave the song a D+ rating. His review comprised solely of two motivational posters, one mentioning what the song is in regards to and the other the review, saying: "Everything is easy when you're cute". Milliken responded to the comments and explained his review. The critic stated: "To me, the song is a soulless rephrasing of an extremely famous philosophical message (so famous it borders on cliche) that doesn’t provide an emotionally coherent context or justification for the use of that message (and it has nothing to do with country music, but let’s ignore that for the sake of this point)." Milliken mentioned that he boosted the grade-level because Cyrus is a "good singer".[9]

Chart performance
"The Climb" is Cyrus' first solo release to country radio, since charting the duet "Ready, Set, Don't Go" with her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, in 2007.[10][11] The song debuted at #48 on the Hot Country Songs chart on the chart week of March 14, 2009. It has since become her first solo Top 40 single on the country charts. On the chart week of March 21, 2009, it debuted at number 6 on Billboard Hot 100 as the Hot-Shot debut of the week due to strong digital downloads and airplay, giving Cyrus her highest charting U.S. single. It has since peaked at no. 4 on the Hot 100. "The Climb" has become a big airplay hit for Cyrus in the U.S., reaching the top five on Mainstream Top 40 radio, her second song to do so (following "See You Again"). The song peaked at #1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart (Cyrus became the second youngest person to top this chart after LeAnn Rimes with "How Do I Live" in 1997)[12] and it has been #1 for 11 weeks. It was Miley's first #1 single on any of Billboard's airplay charts.[13] The song has so far sold over 2,000,000 downloads in the United States, becoming her second song to reach that threshold, the first being "See You Again".[14]

With no promotion, "The Climb" entered the UK Singles Chart at number 82 on March 22, 2009 and over a period of seven weeks climbed to a peak of #11, hence making it Cyrus' fourth solo top 30 hit in the country alongside "See You Again (Rock Mafia Remix)", "7 Things" and "Fly on the Wall". With a total of 19 weeks inside the UK top 100 singles, "The Climb" is so far tied with "7 Things" as her longest charting single in the country.[15] The song was Cyrus' first top 10 hit in the UK. On the Irish Singles Chart the song entered at number 43 and similarly to its performance in the UK peaked at #11 which was at the time her highest charting single in Ireland. "Hoedown Throwdown" has since charted one place higher.

In Australia, the song entered at number 46 and it has (so far) reached a peak of 5, making it Cyrus' third top ten hit and highest charting single there. In New Zealand it entered at 25 and peaked at 12. It was certified Gold on September 6, 2009,[16] selling over 7,500 copies.[17]

Music video
The video was directed by music video director Matthew Rolston, and is based on the thematic metaphor of the song about climbing.[18] The video commences with showing the mountain and an acoustic guitar.[18] Then, Cyrus appears singing "I can almost see it, that dream I'm dreaming" in a black background with a single blue violet spotlight.[18] It suddenly switches scenes, Cyrus is seen walking down a road in order to climb the mountain holding a brown leather suit case.[18] In the other scenario, Cyrus picks up the guitar and starts playing it.[18] Then, clips of Cyrus horseback riding with Lucas Till in Hannah Montana: The Movie begin.[18] She then picks a up a rose that was on the path, smells it and throws it away.[18] A countdown in background starts and as she walks, it starts raining, but Cyrus continuous on.[18] She takes off her jacket and leaves her suitcase behind to keep climbing.[18] Throughout the rest of the video Cyrus keeps climbing though she faces some hindrances and takes off her boots.[18] Near the end, Cyrus reaches the summit, the sun rises and she is seen singing atop the mountain in similarity to the Britney Spears video for "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman".[18][19] VH1 airs an alternate version of the music video that removes all Hannah Montana: The Movie clips.[20]

Live performances
Cyrus performed "The Climb" at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 5, 2009. She performed the song on the We Are The Future: Kids' Inaugural Special and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. On April 1, 2009, she performed the song on American Idol; it was broadcast on the April 15th results show episode.[21] She performed the song on the Good Morning America and Live with Regis and Kelly on April 9 and April 10 respectively. On September 11, Cyrus performed the song at the first-ever D23 Expo.[22]
