Movies with amazing soundtracks are super exciting probably because most movies put in the barest minimum in getting a great soundtrack.
Sometimes the song is so good it is able to stand alone as a song and not just “oh that’s this movie’s soundtrack”
There are a lot of these soundtracks but we picked 6 songs that definitely went viral in Ghana over the years and we bet some people still don’t know they were made for movies!
Let It Go
Every dbee child knows how to sing this song by Idina Menzel mostly because it was for the animated movie, Frozen
This song blew up and blew Bisa Kdei up!!! We all know how huge the song was. We all heard it and we loved it but what most of us didn’t know was that the song was a soundtrack for for the Kumawood movie also titled Azonto Ghost. Bisa Kdei had no idea the song was going to be a hit and even get a Ghana Music Awards nomination! Fun fact… he did everything on the song himself. Writing, singing, production!
My Heart Will Go On
The oldies will know this classic tune from the songstress, Celine Dion. What some people forget is, the song was for the movie, Titanic and mind blowing fact, she sang the song in one take when she recorded. Just once and it was perfect.
See You Again
For the young people, this song is one of the emotional hit songs ever! It was so sad because it was made by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth in memory of the actor, Paul Walker who died in a tragic car crash and was one of the main stars in the movie franchise, Fast and Furious.
For some of us, this song was on our daily playlist. Some think Ana Kendrick, the actress who performed the song in the movie, Pitch Perfect 2 is behind the song but surprise…The song is actually by the British singer, Jessie J.
He lives in me
Almost everyone dancing to this song in church as part of their Sunday School. The song is a rite of passage in church choreography lol but the song but the song is actually from the Lion King musical. It was recorded and performed by Lebo M and his South African Choir and later was featured in the Lion King movie.
