Have you ever realized that there are movie soundtracks that are underrated and overlooked? The new Elvis and Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtracks are some well-done albums that were specially designed to accompany their films. Sometimes, soundtracks can boost the popularity of a movie, especially with a hit single from a well-known artist that is used to help promote the film. Regardless of whether a film is good or not, some songs made for movies can carry their own weight. Here are five of the best songs from 2010s movies.
1. Heavy In Your Arms by Florence & The Machine – Twilight: Eclipse (2010)
The soundtracks for all of the Twilight movies are iconic, to say the least. However, this amazing song from Twilight: Eclipse is full of raw emotion and unique vocals from Florence Welch that stand out from the rest.
2. Honest by The Neighbourhood – The Amazing Spiderman 2 (2014)
As a personal favorite of ours, this track is a part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. The ominous and atmospheric sound of the song really ties to the dark tones that are displayed in the movie and are perfect for a rainy day.
3. Black Sheep by Metric (Brie Larson Vocal Version) – Scott Pilgrim Vs The World (2010)
One of the most popular songs from a movie soundtrack, this cover of Black Sheep by Metric is top tier. Brie Larson as Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim Vs The World completely nails the vocals and adds a flair to make this one of the most iconic movie songs ever.
4. Pray For Me by Kendrick Lamar with The Weeknd – Black Panther (2018)
This song is one of the most memorable tracks from Black Panther. The intro and The Weeknd’s powerful vocals make such an entrance in the film. In general, the soundtrack made for and inspired by Black Panther is easily at the top of the best albums ever made for a movie.
5. Girls Talk Boys by 5 Seconds of Summer – Ghostbusters (2016)
Made for the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters, the boys from 5SOS created a song full of groove and cheeky lyrics. The high-pitched notes and sexy guitar riffs make this track a great addition to the film.
