When this post goes live, it’ll only be a few hours until I get to see the 2017 live-action Beauty and the Beast. Last week I listened to the new soundtrack on YouTube and already, I know that some of the tracks will be joining my list of favourite Disney songs. For today’s post, I thought I’d talk about the songs I really like from the new movie.
These songs are my favourites from the animated version, so it’s no surprise that I’m so happy to see them on the new soundtrack. Be Our Guest is an absolute classic, Something There sounds wonderful in the sneak preview clip that Disney released earlier in the year and Emma Thompson sings the title track brilliantly, in Angela Lansbury’s classic Mrs Potts style.
The new additions:
I first heard about this song after seeing Georgia Merry’s cover of it on YouTube. It’s such a beautiful song, that fits so well with the original animated score. It’s lovely that Celine Dion has recorded a version of this for the soundtrack, especially as she recorded the title track for the original animated movie.
It’s great that the beast has his own song in the new movie. The lyrics of Evermore show us more of the Beast’s softer side and I’m looking forward to seeing how Dan Stephens portrays the character in the movie.
What are your favourite songs from the new movie?
