The tale as old as time is timeless, and so is its music. With the recent release of Disney’s smash success Beauty and the Beast, let’s unpack the music box that is the film’s soundtrack. With all of the original tunes from the 1991 film, as well as some new additions, this new version blends classic and contemporary almost seamlessly, with a few exceptions.
Here is my review of the soundtrack for the 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast.
Songs for Japan, a compilation of 38 songs from some of today’s biggest names in contemporary music, is available through the iTunes store for $9.99. The album is to benefit those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and proceeds from the album’s sale will go towards the disaster relief efforts of the Japanese Red Cross Society.
The compilation album, put together by Universal Music, includes songs from many genres, like rock, pop, hip-hop, R&B, country, new age, and more, with artists like The Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo, Eminem, Keith Urban, John Lennon, Enya, Josh Groban, and others.

Not only is this for a great cause, but it’s also the perfect collection for the all-around music-lover. Plus, these songs individually typically cost 99 cents each, so even if you only like 10 of the 38 songs, it’s well worth the money, and hey, you just might like some of the tunes you don’t know.
