This soundtrack is everything I loved about Monsters Inc. The music is exciting, moving and heartwarming. It is composed by the amazing Randy Newman the man behind the soundtracks for the original Monsters Inc movie, Toy Story, Bugs Life and Cars.
The soundtrack also includes a great summer tune from Axwell & Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia called Roar which is used in the scenes at the fraternity party attended by Mike and Sulley. The song has an upbeat electronic dance sound “We wanted to keep it funny, funky and at the same time a bit cool with a hint of monsters in it,” said Axwell.

I loved this soundtrack and gave it a play for our Rainbows and the girls loved it! I have also found it really nice listening to this soundtrack while playing with Ted as it is lovely to just have on in the background.
My favourite track is Young Michael which is really lovely and I can just imagine cute little Michael Wazowski toddling about!
I also really enjoyed learning the words to the Monsters University the university's anthem. See if you can sing along!
I can't wait to see the movie now, it will be fun picking out all the different pieces of music throughout the film!
