Movie soundtracks are a huge part of films. They are such an important part of what makes the movie interesting, sets the tone for the movie, and keeps you engaged in the movie. The Mammia Mia! Movies do a great job of successfully fulfilling these key features, which is why we are obsessed with them, here at Bloom. The 2008 film, Mamma Mia, features a new concept- a movie including songs all by one band or artist. ABBA, the classic 70’s group, is the featured artist for this film. It contained ABBA’s most popular songs-‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Super Trouper’, and more.We, at Bloom, are now super fans of ‘Honey, Honey’, ‘Slipping Through My Fingers’, ‘The Winner Takes It All’, ‘I Have A Dream’, ‘Thank You For The Music’, and many more. New generations have quickly fallen in love with these new-found songs and film, and the dedicated ABBA fans appreciate the use of some of their favorite songs even more! The soundtracks of films are important for countless reasons. They set the tone for the movie. For example, some of the songs in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again make you gloomy. ‘One of Us’ is the duet sung by Sophie and her husband, Sky, about how distraught they are to not be with each other. The song makes you nostalgic, because it reminisces on the past, and their popular duet from the previous movie. It also makes you sad that they are apart. ‘Knowing Me Knowing You’ is about the breakup of Donna and Sam Carmichael, who are singing to each other indespair. But don’t worry, there are plenty of happy, nostalgic, exciting songs as well and ‘Waterloo’ is one of them. It is a feel good song with Harry expressing his love for Donna, who he presumes to be the love of his life. Everyone is dancing and singing, and the characters make you feel as though you’re there with them, experiencing the exciting musical number for yourself! Lastly, the very ending songs make you feel all of the emotions at the same time. I’ve Been Waiting For You’ is a song Sophie sings about her child, and ‘My Love, My Life’, is Donna’s song to Sophie. They make you both happy to see Sophie and her new born child, but also sad because Donna has passed away. Both of the Mamma Mia! Movies did an amazing job of making the audience feel so many emotions at once. They also succeeded in making the audience love the covers of ABBA songs as much as they love the actual ABBA songs, and if not, more. The movies are so well made, they almost persuade you to like the covers more than the original songs. That is such a difficult task to complete, and the Mamma Mia! Movies do it with such ease. They make the audience fall in love with the characters and songs thus creating an attachment. Because movie soundtracks are so vital to film, it is important to make sure that the songs are interesting and that people will actually want to listen. The movie itself is so good, it keeps you engaged as it is. However, adding the music to it makes you never wanna take your eyes off of the screen. There are no songs to dislike, or not be interested in enough, where you start to look at your phone or play with your dog. The movie and soundtrack both keep you engaged and anticipating. You can not get enough of either! All in all, the movie and songs alike, leave you satisfied and feeling good once you are done watching. And if you’re like us, you’ll run to your Spotify and put the whole soundtrack on your playlist!
