A Definitive Ranking Of The Songs On The Trolls Soundtrack
Start writing a post

My littlest brother got the Trolls soundtrack and a CD player for Christmas. Needless to say, we haven't stopped listening to the CD since he got it. I'm almost 21, and I know every word to every song on the Trolls soundtrack. Anyway...

The movie is actually really cute and has some decent people in it. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake play the two main characters, and their animated chemistry is decent. Other big names like Gwen Stefani, Zooey Deschanel, Russel Brand and James Corden voice a few of the characters, too. Like I said, it's a cute movie, and the soundtrack fits it well! But on the hundredth listen through just the CD, I have a few opinions I'd like to voice.

With that being said, here's my official ranking of the songs from least listenable to almost decent:

13. "Hair Up"

This song bugs me to no end. Instead of saying "put your hands in the air," it says "put your hair in the air." WHY? I get it; it's a kid's movie and they're trying to be cute. Yes, trolls have tall hair.

But you know what else trolls have? HANDS. Please make this CD slightly more bearable to listen to and just... don't do stuff like that. I don't know why it bugs me, but it does.

12. "Hello"

Zooey Deschanel singing a Lionel Richie song is not something I thought I'd ever be subjected to, but here we are. This song is not one my favorites even when it's not being sung by Jess from New Girl, which earns it a spot at number 12.

11. "September"

Again, not one of my favorite songs to listen to in general, and it weirds me out to hear JT and Anna Kendrick sing it. It's cute in the movie, though, so it's not dead last.

10. "What U Workin' With?"

Oh boy, top ten. This song is an original by JT and Gwen Stefani-- not the best, but not the worst, either.

9. "I'm Comin' Out/ Mo' Money Mo' Problems"

This song is a stereotypical make-over scene. It fit well in the movie, so I'm giving it ninth place.

8. "They Don't Know"

Ariana Grande sings this song and, while I don't hate her voice, I can not understand a single word that woman says.

7. "True Colors"

This was a cute scene in the movie, so I dig this song. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't like it nearly as much.

6. "True Colors (Film Version)"

Wait... the other one wasn't the film version? I don't believe you, but alright.

They sound exactly the same. I didn't actually know there were two versions of this song on the soundtrack until I wrote this article.

5. "Move Your Feet/ D.A.N.C.E/ It's a Sunshine Day"

This is a cute little mashup! I find myself singing it all the time, usually against my will but it's fine. Not too bad, Trolls CD.

4. "Can't Stop The Feeling (Film Version)"

I love Anna Kendrick, but hearing she sings this song so gratingly that I just can't deal. It's a good song though, so I guess I'll give it fourth.

3. "Can't Stop The Feeling"

Oh look, another duplicate! This time, though, it's just JT. Good enough song but why, why why do we have to hear it twice?

Think of the parents and older siblings, Dreamworks.

2. "The Sound of Silence"

This is so high up for a few reasons:

1. This is just a great song in general.

2. This scene is hilarious. Really, it's not a bad movie.

1. "Get Back Up Again"

This is just Anna Kendrick, but it's super cute. It's got more musical theater aspects than the rest of the songs (probably why I like it, to be honest), and I find myself singing it all. the. time.

Well, there you have it folks; a definitive ranking of the songs on the Trolls CD. It's not all bad, but it's definitely not all good either. Take a listen... or don't.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
