2 movie soundtracks I never get sick of listening to

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Gettysburg chapter.

I am very much a fan of movies, however, I also love soundtracks from movies. I could name lots of soundtracks that I love, but there are two in particular that I never get sick of listening to. I wanted to share them because I love them so much and think they are incredible.

La La Land

I LOVE the movie “La La Land”. I saw it twice in the theater, I bought a copy of it on DVD when it came out, and after seeing it, I immediately downloaded all of the music. I can confidently say that if I listened to this soundtrack all the way through without stopping, I would enjoy it. I truly think every song, even the ones that are instrumental, are brilliantly done. I love picturing the scenes from the movies while listening to them, but I think they would be enjoyable even if someone listening had not seen the film. Overall, the music for the film is amazing and I am very excited to say I am listening to it as I am typing this article.

Tick Tick Boom

The film “Tick Tick Boom” is a bit newer than “La La Land” but I absolutely love it as well. I could play the songs over and over again (I have) and I never get sick of listening to them. The film stars Andrew Garfield as Jonathan Larson and it is definitely a film worth watching, if not for the story definitely for the music. I had no idea Andrew Garfield could sing like that and I am beyond impressed.

These two movies are absolutely inspiring and the music that accompanies them is just amazing. The two soundtracks are played frequently on my phone and I recommend them to as many people as I can. I think both work for many occasions and are exciting to listen to and I’m grateful for both.
