Film Soundtracks - Released July 13, 2018 | Polydor Records

Same stars, same Mediterranean landscape: this sequel reuses the same exact formula of the first opus dating from 2008 (which is itself an adaptation of the successful musical). Unsurprisingly, its soundtrack is based on the same principle as those two works, since it only contains covers of ABBA. You will find some classics already present on the first movie’s soundtrack, starting with Mamma Mia and Dancing Queen. The latter is slightly different since this time, some men are joining the female chorus (Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and Stellan Skarsgård). Among the novelties, let’s cite Fernando by Cher, Waterloo by Hugh Skinner, as well as a moving The Day before you came by Meryl Streep. All these covers are very close to the originals regarding the arrangements, but this deluxe playlist also includes more improbable reinterpretations, such as the introduction of Kisses of fire, performed by a Panos Mouzourakis that is almost falling into caricature. As for the first Mamma Mia, this soundtrack is therefore possessed with a good-natured 70s joy that will seduce the fans of the Swedish pop band (and others). ©Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
