Monsters University Soundtrack

I have always been a huge fan of Disney music, since my first Disney movie Aladdin in the cinema when I was 5 to the gift of 3 Disney CD's I received for my baby shower! Imagine how excited I was when I was asked to review the latest Monsters University Soundtrack from Disney/Pixar. 

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! 

Monsters University
We give our heart to you
We want you to be proud of us
What ever we may do.
Wherever children are dreaming,
We'll bring the nightmares to
From Monsters University
Alma Mater we love you.
Monsters of the world
Can you hear the call?
At Monsters University
You're welcome one and all
Monster University, Monster University
First in terror, first in fear,
We're awfully glad we're here.
Monsters University
We never will forget
The golden years we spent with you
And the monster that we met
No matter where life takes us
Your light will come shining through
Oh, Monsters University
Alma Mater, hail to you.

I can't wait to see the movie now, it will be fun picking out all the different pieces of music throughout the film!
