Smurfs 2 - 2013

About the music in The Smurfs 2

The Smurfs are back this week and that should have kids everywhere pretty excited. The film also also marks the return of composer Heitor Pereira who has been busy this summer as he has also worked on Despicable Me 2.

Heitor’s compositions for the film are often light and whimsical. Interestingly, he also incorporated child choirs in a few of the songs to give the soundtrack and even younger feel. As much as the score seems directed at kids, the commercial songs used in the film are a little less so. They seem more like a list of songs on a pre-teen’s playlist rather than something the kids would connect with. In that sense, the song choices didn’t seem to fit well with the score.

The full song list from the movie is now available below.  Let us know what you think about the music used in The Smurfs 2 in the comments!
