Is there actually anyone who hasn’t been to see Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again? I’ve been three times now (no shame) and for the last week I’ve had the soundtrack playing on repeat (also no shame). And it got me thinking about how great soundtracks are, even when it isn’t a musical, and I made a decision that from now on I am going to note down if a film has a good soundtrack while i’m watching it. Lets be honest, most rom coms have definitely got a killer tune selection to go along with them.
SO, without including Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, here is the beginning of my ‘list of films with great soundtracks for every mood’.
