I love movies and I also love music so I decided to put together a blog post of my top 5 favourite movie soundtracks! A lot of these are going to be book-to-movie adaptations but a few are not. I really recommend you listen to these soundtracks if you haven’t and I hope you enjoy!
The First Time – This movie has Dylan O’Brien and Britt Robertson in it so I adored it right away, but I also really, really liked the soundtrack. This movie is about this guy named Dave who has been pining after this girl named Jane since forever, but when he meets this new and different girl named Aubrey he starts to question his feelings for Jane. This movie is cheesy but it also deals with a lot of realistic problems that teenagers have. The soundtrack really fits the mood and feeling of this movie and the opening song, Silly Boys is one of my favourites along with the Sweet Lousie.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – It is only obvious that this movie would have an amazing soundtrack since it is set in the early 90’s so it is filled with music from the 80’s. The Perks of Being a Wallflower follows a teenage boy named Charlie who is entering his first year of school with a lot of baggage from his past, but when he meets a group of misfit seniors, his life is turned around for the better. I love this movie and its soundtrack is great. It has The Smiths and David Bowie so what more could you want?
Moana – I absolutely adore the Moana soundtrack. I could sing it all everyday and never get bored of it because Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote a great portion of the fabulous soundtrack. Moana is an animated movie about a girl named Moana who has never left the island she lives on, but dreams of sailing the seas. When she has the opportunity so save her dying island, she jumps on the chance and goes on a crazy adventure along with the Demigod Maui. This was one of my favourite movies of 2017, mainly because of the catchy and amazing songs. My favourite is most definitely How Far I’ll Go because it is so inspiring and will motivate you to do anything.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Guardians of the Galaxy is a movie that I cannot explain just because it is so awesome and kick butt. The soundtrack is also amazing. Hooked on a Feeling played and made me love the movie 10x more!
Divergent – I love Ellie Goulding and she IS the Divergent soundtrack. Divergent is a movie that follows 16 year old Tris Prior who is about to take an aptitude test that will tell her which faction she belongs to. In this dystopian world, there are 5 different factions. Erudite the smart, Candor the honest, Abnegation the selfless, Dauntless the brave and Amity the kind. The scene where Four and Tris kiss has one of my favourite songs from this soundtrack and I was really satisfied with all the music!
Those were my top 5 favourite movie soundtracks and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: February 2017 Talk!
