This film had something for everyone – young and old alike. It was funny, sweet, and magical. And the music! How fun was that? The 80’s tune, “I Want Candy” by the group Bow Wow Wow, had you leaving the theater humming that classic one hit wonder. E.B., the Cutest Bunny in the world drummed to Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground. Unfortunately, these songs are not on the soundtrack that was just released, which is all instrumental, but again the opening song ‘Easter Island’ is fun and gets you hopping in your seat. Hopefully, they will release another soundtrack that includes these.
All in all, the Hop soundtrack helped transport me back to a time when as a child, life was so wonderfully simple, unlike the day to day struggle of life as an adult. But this afternoon, I sat in the theater, and felt Happy. That’s what a good film and soundtrack should always do, touch on memories and emotions. I hope you see this film, and get to escape to Easter Island for a little while. You’ll be HAPPY that you did.The Soundtracker
