Review of My Favorite Tracks Off the 50 Shades Freed Soundtrack

Just like the soundtracks of the previous two movies of the trilogy, the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack is incredible! The soundtrack has 22 songs in total and here is what I think and how I feel about a few of my favorites and a few I was hoping for more from:

 

Track 1-  “Capital Letters” by Hailee Steinfeld & BloodPop

Favorite lyrics:

For worse or for better,

Gonna give it to you

In capital letters

The chorus of “Capital Letters” is extremely catchy, and that’s what initially drew me to the song. However, beyond that, the song doesn’t really make me feel anything. The only reason I do enjoy listening to it is because Hailee Steinfeld’s voice can make anything sound amazing!

 

Track 2- “For You” by Liam Payne & Rita Ora

Favorite lyrics:

Been waiting for a lifetime for you,

Been breaking for a lifetime for you,

Wasn’t looking for love ‘til I found you

With Rita Ora’s superb acting in the movie, and then this song, I don’t think there’s anything to complain about in reference to her. The only critique I have of this song is that Liam Payne’s voice – which could’ve only improved the song – wasn’t featured enough.

 

Track 4- “High” by Whethan & Dua Lipa

Favorite lyrics:

Keep my head under the water

Pride buried in my chest

Not counting all the minutes, the seconds, not holdin’ my breath

I’m having a major Dua Lipa phase right now, however, this song was quite a let down. It is nice to listen to maybe a couple of times, but without any deeper meaning to the song or even lyrics which resonate to me a little, it’s hard to enjoy listening to it a lot.

 

Track 5-  “Heaven” by Julia Michaels        

Favorite lyrics:

No need to imagine cause I’ll know it’s true

They say all good boys go to heaven

But bad boys bring heaven to you

It’s automatic, it’s just what they do

They say all good boys go to heaven

But bad boys bring heaven to you

This song is very typical of what I’d expect from a Fifty Shades movie. It’s extremely catchy and I love listening and singing along to it. Again, it’s not exactly a song that would make you feel something deep, but it’s a great song in general terms, and goes really well with the whole Fifty Shades vibe.

 

Track 15- “Deer In Headlights” by Sia

Favorite lyrics:

Standing at the crossroads

There’s no right answer

No one’s brain to pick

Under the spy

There’s no escaping

I’m a deer caught in headlights

This was by far my favorite song on the soundtrack. The first time listening to it I had chills. Sia’s voice adds the perfect, soothing tone, for the song, and it’s a must to listen to it!

This soundtrack was incredible, and Fifty Shades Freed definitely lived upto the expectations set by the previous two movies. If you haven’t seen the movies or heard the songs, go check them out!
