As 2021 comes to a close, I can’t help but reflect on how we have been blessed with another year filled with tons of new music. As a movie lover, one of my personal favorite things that came from this year was the surplus of enchanting feature film soundtracks. Movie soundtracks are what make the journey memorable and help move the audience move with the story.
While there are so many songs from movie soundtracks that I have added to my playlists, here’s a couple you should add to yours:
“Dos Oruguitas” is sung by Sebastian Yatra representing the story of Mirabel’s grandparents. This song holds so much meaning and love, and it was the most heart wrenching point in the movie for me. With Encanto just being added to Disney Plus we can all now enjoy and appreciate the art and hard work put into this movie.
This song has officially taken over my TikTok fyp, and now probably my most listened to track of the week. This song from the film Tick, Tick… Boom! is a trip, and one of my favorites from this movie. Starring Andrew Garfield, this film is a story about the composer Jonathan Larson and his life journey before his death.
From F9: The Fast Saga, Anitta’s song has added a bad bitch feel to my playlist. With the fierceness that the Fast and Furious franchise already gives us, their soundtrack matches the energy perfectly. This song specifically from this year’s film, has boosted my feel in my GRWM playlist.
“Call Me Cruella”
One of the newest revamps of the Disney movies, Cruella gave us an amazing mix of artists in its soundtrack. “Call Me Cruella” by Florence + The Machine kills it. They added the edgy, dark and intense sound to the movie that is followed by other icons like The Doors and Nina Simone. This movie soundtrack helped me immerse myself into this movie in the best way and you have to give it a chance.
“Fight For You” by H.E.R in Judas and the Black Messiah
“Call Me” by Blondie in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
Which songs were make or break it for you in a movie? I believe the Encanto movie soundtrack was probably one of the greatest this year, with their instrumental hint moments, and their iconic must dance to latin sounds, it deserves my number one spot.
