Soundtrack to Your Life


With classes and studying and everything in between, finding time to kick back and watch your favorite movies seems impossible.  Make your next study, workout, or anytime playlist with movie soundtracks and get the best of both worlds!  Here’s your guide to the movie soundtrack playlist essentials:


500 Days Of Summer

The Rom Com Soundtrack

(500) Days of Summer is perfect for the indie music lover.  Try these tracks:

“There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” - The Smiths

“Us” - Regina Spektor

If upbeat pop is more your style, Easy A’s “Pocketful of Sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield is a perfect rom com addition. 


The Musicals Soundtrack

Big screen musical soundtracks are beyond perfect for the musical theatre nerd in all of us. Top choices include:

“I Dreamed A Dream” - Les Misérables

 “Seasons of Love” -  Rent

Add in “Defying Gravity” - Wicked for the full musical effect, even if it cheats a little on the movie soundtrack theme!



The Disney Movies Soundtrack

No movie playlist would be complete without childhood throwbacks.  Here are some suggestions from animated favorites:

“Hakuna Matata” - The Lion King

“Under the Sea” - The Little Mermaid

“I’ll Make a Man Out of You” - Mulan


The Original Movie Songs Soundtrack

Some of the best music is written and performed exclusively for the big screen.  Check out these selections:

“Skyfall” - Adele for Skyfall

“Falling Slowly” - Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for Once
