While the film The Greatest Showman will not be cracking my top ten list for best films this year, as the movie felt disheartening every time I remembered who this film is actually about (Google P.T. Barnum), the soundtrack has been stuck in my head ever since I saw it.
The album has been sitting comfortably at #1 on iTunes while two songs from the soundtrack, This Is Me and Rewrite the Stars (featuring Zendaya and Zac Efron) are holding their own in the top 30 of songs on iTunes. I really enjoyed both of these songs, but I think my favorite is Never Enough, a song sung by the character Jenny Lind in the film. Besides being my favorite song in the film, after reading about the real life Jenny Lind that the character is based off of, I think she should have a film about her life in place of P.T. Barnum. I was also surprised by Michelle Williams who has beautiful vocals in her song Tightrope.
