5 Kid’s Movie Soundtracks You’ll All Want to Listen to

Sure, it was adorable when our kids were singing every word from every song on the Frozen movie soundtrack but you have to admit, it got a little old after the 3,769th time. I’m a big believer in making letting my kids listen to the music I already listen to. After all, it was pretty cute seeing my 2-year old singing “Beautiful Day”. But I do love to let my kids listen to songs that they find familiar and fun. I love it when I find a soundtrack from a kid’s movie that not only my kids love, but I actually would listen to even if they weren’t around.  Here are 5 of our favorites.

5 Kid's Movie Soundtracks

The Book of Life: From one of our favorite movies, The Book of Life soundtrack is fun and catchy and will have your kids singing with heart. The covers of “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You”, Radiohead’s “Creep” and Mumford and Son’s “I Will Wait” are so good. “No Matter Where You Are” performed by Us the Duo is outstanding.

The Book of Life Soundtrack includes a Mumford and Sons cover you'll love.

Home: So, I’m not a big Rhianna fan (or really a fan at all). BUT, the Home movie soundtrack is a winner and Rhianna has three songs on the album and I LIKE THEM. Who knew. J Lo’s “Feel the Light” is our favorite. It’s a catchy soundtrack and perfect for impromptu kid dance parties.

The Home Soundtrack will make you want to dance with tunes from J Lo and Rhianna.

Wreck-it-Ralph: The Wreck-it-Ralph movie soundtrack is happy and always puts me in a good mood. It kicks off with Owl City’s “When Can I See You Again”, has a few fast-paced songs and ends with Henry Jackman’s score from the movie.

For an instant good mood, put in the Wreck-it-Ralph Soundtrack.

Brave: Three original songs kick off the Brave movie soundtrack and they are inspiring and beautiful. The rest of the soundtrack keeps up the pace and is full of heart.

Brave Score and Soundtrack

How to Train Your Dragon: I’m sentimentally attached to the score from the movie, How to Train Your Dragon. This movie was one of our favorites and we’re also huge fans of John Powell, the composer. The music will put you right back into the movie as if you are soaring on your own dragon.
