Encanto: Songs from the Movie That We Cannot Stop Listening To

The 2021 film Encanto was a beautiful story with the lesson to be different and, still cherish yourself and, love your family with all your heart. This was not the first time that Walt Disney Pictures used this trope to impress its audience. We have previously seen films like Brave in 2012 and Frozen in 2013, that brought us this same narrative of self and family love. Then, what makes this 2021 musical so different and makes it stand out from the crowd? Well, it looks like it is the Encanto Soundtrack that plays huge popularity for this animated movie.

The film is directed by Jared Bush and Byron Howard, co-directed by Charise Castro Smith who also co-wrote the screenplay with Bush. Yvett Merino and Clark Spencer have produced this film, with original songs written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The film’s soundtrack is presently receiving global recognition. It is also topping the Billboard charts. In fact, the film’s iconic song We Don’t Talk About Bruno has become the first song from a Disney movie to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since A Whole New World from Aladdin in 1993.

Starring popular actors like Stephanie Beatriz, María Cecilia Botero, John Leguizamo, Jessica Darrow, Diane Guerrero and others to voice the characters, let us have a look at the top five songs from Encanto that are catchy, inspiring and, definitely on our loop playlist!

Top 5 Songs from Encanto that We Love

We Don’t Talk About Bruno

The charts are not lying, we are all obsessed! The song about Mirabel’s ostracized uncle who can see the future is just the song with the right tempo of horror, fun and, intrigue. It is going to become a Disney classic if it hasn’t already. The viral song has Mirabel’s family members telling her the story about her uncle Bruno and, what he could do.

All of You

Being the final musical number of the film, the song was indeed touching and inspirational. Mirabel finally gets appreciated and, the people of the village are the ones now lending a hand to the family Madrigal after all the years they have helped them. It was a touching moment of closure in the story and, the final jigsaw to finish Mirabel’s character arc.

Surface Pressure

Who knew we would get a musical number from Luisa, right? So strong and helpful, what would she sing about? But, Surface Pressure was everything we ever desired in a solo from such a strong woman who is burdened with weights of chores and, a family name. From insecurities to the everyday pressure to do better, Luisa touches our hearts with this sympathetic yet catchy song.

Dos Oruguitas

Don’t listen to this song with those tissue boxes surrounding you! Serving as the emotional centrepiece to this film, Dos Oruguitas is all about letting your loved ones go and, moving forward in life. Painful yet important, the song in Sebastián Yatra’s voice will move your soul.

What Else Can I Do?

Maybe a lot of people will not agree with this pick or, maybe they will. Overall, this song is the bridge to the entire story. It helps Mirabel and Isabella put their differences behind them. It gives Isabella the chance to say what she truly feels and, not come off as the mean sister. But, mostly, this is the song that almost mends the house and family. It is an integral song in the story and, without this, there could have been no moving forward.
