A Subjective Ranking Of The 'Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again' Soundtrack

A Subjective Ranking Of The 'Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again' Soundtrack

Alexa, play "Dancing Queen."


If you're anything like me, the anticipation of seeing Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again has been KILLING you all summer. AND NOW IT'S FINALLY HERE. Between the musical stylings of ABBA, massive dance numbers, and Meryl Streep, the Mamma Mia franchise combines many of my favorite things. Now that I've finally gotten to witness the nostalgia-inducing, Go-Go boot wearing, immediate guilty pleasure of a sequel, what better way is there to celebrate than to rank its soundtrack based on nothing more than my personal opinions?! (Each song will be given a guilty pleasure ranking on a scale of 1--10 as that is really all I care about)

18. I Wonder

Listen, this song is cute but it wasn't super memorable for me. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it: I'd like to clarify that I love literally every song in this movie. This just doesn't come close to the likes of Dancing Queen or Honey, Honey for me.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 5

17. The Day Before You Came

Okay, tbh this is only above 'I Wonder' because it gets Meryl points. I'm just not really vibing with it. I know 'vibes' aren't an accurate grading system, but neither is any of this tbh.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 5.1

16. Andante, Andante

A nice, slow, smooth jam. Not my favorite (obvi), but still would willingly listen to it.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 6

15. Kisses Of Fire

Another fun, light, and breezy song: just not as meaningful as some of the others.

Guilty Pleasure meter: 6

14. My Love, My Life

As mentioned pretty frequently in this article, I basically worship the ground Meryl Streep walks on. HOWEVER, while this song is touching, it wasn't as emotional for me as some of the other slower songs for me--i.e. I've Been Waiting For You. This may be a personal thing, idk, but it felt a little too forced for me.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 6.5

13. One of Us

I like this song in its ability to summarize Sophie and Sky's relationship, but it doesn't stand out that much for me. I mean, with this soundtrack that's pretty difficult to do anyways.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 6.65

12. Waterloo

Honestly this song is peak ABBA. It needs no introduction. Its placement in the movie felt a little random, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't still like it.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 7

11. When I Kissed the Teacher

While I was mildly confused by the beginning of this movie in general, this song is an undeniable BOP and I will listen it repeatedly for its catchiness alone.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 7

10. Why Did It Have To Be Me

This one is SO FUN. Honestly I really, genuinely loved young Bill's character, and this song is where he really shines!

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 7

9. I've Been Waiting For You

This song is peak Amanda Seyfried: sweet, light, and moving. While Mamma Mia is probably better known for its more upbeat songs, this one is a really, really touching moment in the movie.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 8

8. The Name of the Game

A. LADY. JAM. It's the anthem you didn't know you needed.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 8

7. Knowing Me, Knowing You

It's not quite as upbeat as Angel Eyes or Dancing Queen or as emotional as I Have A Dream; in a soundtrack full of bangers, this one tends to get lost in the shuffle--which is a shame because it's great in its own right!

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 8

6. I Have A Dream

This one encapsulates everything you really need to know about Donna's character. It's all about her life philosophy and I think that's worth mentioning aside from its melodic, light feel.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 9

5. Angel Eyes

This is definitely a windows-down, belt-for-the-heavens type of song. AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. (It's the song I haven't stopped listening to since I saw it, if that's any indication of its catchiness)

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 9

4. Super Trouper

If this song doesn't make you want to start a girl band with your BFF's, then you don't deserve it.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 9.99999

3. Fernando

OKAY, slightly biased because I already loved this song, but like Cher didn't have to go THAT hard and she did. She did that for us. There WAS something in the air that night, and it gave us this banger.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 10

2. Mamma Mia

Listen, it's the name of the movie for a reason. Loved it in the original, love it now. When Donna said "Yes, I've been broken hearted/ooooh, since the day we parted", I felt that.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 11

1. Dancing Queen

I don't think this one requires much of an explanation: JAM of the freakin' century. I will stan this song til the day I die. Young nd Sweet 5ever.

Guilty Pleasure Meter: 1000000000000000000000000000000000000

    Talking, Crying, Chewing, What Ever Happened To Movie Theater Etiquette?

    The unofficial rules you should follow if you go to the theater.


    Dear Moviegoers,

    Movies are often made to be viewed on the big screen, which is why we go to the movies. I personally like the experience. The loud sounds, the big screens, the popcorn and candy, the darkroom. I pay a lot for that experience.

    That's why, at the risk of sounding petty, I have to ask: Please, stop going to the movies if you're just going to be annoying.

    I mean, whatever happened to movie theater etiquette?

    It's like people have forgotten how to behave in a movie theater!

    I know it might seem silly, but I pay too much for tickets and snacks to have my seat kicked and listen to other people whisper. I don't know when it happened, but people seem to be disregarding the societal rules we've established to make going to the movies fun. In case you're one of those people who've forgotten how to act, let me remind you.

    Please, for the love of god, arrive on time. It's distracting when someone shows up late and is awkwardly maneuvering around people to find a seat. At the very least, sit on the ends of the rows instead of climbing over other people to sit in the middle of the row.

    Along with that, please remember that there is limited space in the theater. Whether you're finding your seat or simply readjusting during a long movie, be mindful of the space you have. I don't want my chair kicked repeatedly because you can't get comfortable. If you're sitting in the middle of the row, don't get up repeatedly. Keep your elbows in if you're sitting next to someone. Respect others' personal space.

    Turning your phone off is another way to show respect for your fellow moviegoers. I don't want to hear your cell phone ring. If, for whatever reason, you really need it on, please silence it. If you're expecting an emergency call from your sister in labor or you're worried about the babysitter, maybe you shouldn't be at the theater.

    Since you're expected to keep your phone quiet, you should be quiet, too. I don't want to hear you and your friends whispering behind me for two hours, and no one in the theater wants to hear your commentary. If something funny happens, feel free to laugh. If something terrifying happens, you can gasp. If you're at the theater solely to get attention, please take your over-the-top reactions to a sporting event or something.

    If I go to see the newest Disney-Pixar film, I expect to see children there and it doesn't bother me. I don't care if you bring your toddler to a children's movie, especially since it was made for them. I do not, however, expect children to be in the audience if I go to see the newest slasher film. In that case, I will be annoyed. I mean, come on — who takes their young children to see an R-rated in the theater?

    And, like, I would expect anywhere else, you should be eating and drinking quietly. Wait till a loud scene to open that candy wrapper (or be smart and sneak your own candy in — you can buy it at Target and put it into Ziploc baggies that don't make noise and can hold lots of candy). Don't suck on the straw when you're clearly out of soda. Chew with your mouth close.

    Please, have some respect for other people.

    I don't want to come off as a snob, but there are certain rules for seeing a movie in the theater that people seem to disregard nowadays. It might not be a big deal to you, but it is to me. I go because I'm interested in the film being shown and because I want to see it on the big screen with popcorn and a slushie. The cost of going to movies is expensive, but it's worth every penny when I can actually enjoy it.
