In addition to presenting a worthy ending to the trilogy, "To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: Always and Forever" has a more mature soundtrack that warms up all the hearts of those who listen to it.
The last movie that was just released on February 12th by Netflix, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3” ends Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean’s big story, leaving an unforgettable ending. On this note, the movie has a 16-track soundtrack that dialogues with each scene and character in a light and harmonic way.
The highlight of the movie was Leah Nobel’s song Beginning Middle End, written and composed specially for the film. It brings a melody full of memories that live up to the three movies from the franchise, giving a special and heartwarming end to our beloved couple. However, the song has another version from the indie band The Greeting Committee, that even makes a cameo singing at the party scene at New York City University (NYU). Not to mention that the band also has two original songs that compose the movie soundtrack: "17" and "Run For Your Money".
The plot of the last movie brings up the paths of ending high school and the preparations to college, showing the coming of age of the characters without leaving aside the rom-com touch that we all love. Lara Jean has to go through many transformations, making her reflect on her future with friends, family, and Peter after graduation. The expectations from fans for the third movie were high and were surely reached, not sparing compliments for the songs that compose the feature film.
The songs featured on the soundtrack are from a diverse range of artists, reaching from BLACKPINK to Oasis. Strong and powerful lyrics make them even flashier and unforgettable to the public’s ear, even if they are lively or calm.
If having a keen ear, the song "Wannabe", from Spice Girls, can be noticed playing in two different “moods”. The first one, right at the beginning, comes up with a lively tone, when the protagonist imagines a successful future with Kavinsky when getting accepted to college. While the second version plays moments after, when she reads that she wasn’t accepted to her dream college, but this time the tone is slower and sadder, sung by Sandflower.
Another song from the first movie, makes a reappearance on the last one, from north-American singer Lauv, "I Like Me Better", but this time its apparition is in the form of a remixed version. It soon became the couple’s theme song throughout the first movie, and it makes a comeback to remember some moments that marked Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky’s friendship and love story.
The complete soundtrack from the movie is available on Netflix’s official Spotify account, here!
