The film “The Greatest Showman” takes the audience on P.T. Barnum’s and his “oddities” rise to fame. His struggle with balancing facades, family, and finance, Carlyle’s conflicting feelings to Anne, and the journey of the unique performers entice viewers.

At the box office, “The Greatest Showman” earned a wh


opping 166.3 million dollars. Its soundtrack and musical feel largely contributed. The movie begins with “The Greatest Show,” immediately grabbing the audience’s attention. The musical numbers continue as the plot progresses.

The songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the soundtrack. Some of their other works include “City of Stars” from “La La Land,” the “Dear Evan Hansen” score, and the “James and the Giant Peach” score. Clearly, they’ve stumbled into the spotlight and are thriving.


This innovative pairing captured P.T. Barnum and his circus perfectly. Their songs encapsulate the essence of characters’s feelings throughout the movie. In a “Los Angeles Times” interview, they said the trapeze inspired some of their songs, particularly “Rewrite the Stars.”

When writing, they imagined Anne and Carlyle trying to reach for each other while swinging on trapeze. They translated the image into a song and were left with a masterpiece.

Ryan Lewis was also recruited to add a feeling of empowerment to songs by incorporating some hip hop aspects. “This is Me,” an anthem of sorts, inspires others to accept w

ho they are. It won Best Original Song- Motion Picture at the Golden Globes.

“The Voice” star Loren Allred sang “Never Enough” in place of Rebecca Ferguson, the actress playing Jenny Lind. Her amazing vocal skills shone through th

e song, bringing audience members to tears.

Hugh Jackman demonstrated his vocal skills when singing “From Now On.” With his low octaves, the audience sees his vulnerability, creating a sense of familiarity. This connects the audience to him on a personal level, further entrancing them in the song.

“The Greatest Showman” soundtrack has spent its second we

ek at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart and four of its songs hit Billb

oard 100. There is no doubt of excellency in this album. To listen on Spotify, scan this QR Code or copy this link
