So there won't be a deluxe edition of the soundtrack? That's disappointing. I was hoping we'd get some deleted songs or demos.

That would've been pretty great, to know which songs were deleted or changed into the versions we know them. Plus it's interesting to note that the "Overture" is right after Lin's song "Underneath the Lovely London Sky". Interesting choice from the first movie which begins with the "Overture" and then the songs, but maybe it all makes sense in context.

And here's the soundtrack in order (Some titles may or may not be spoilers):

1. "(Underneath the) Lovely London Sky" - Performed by Lin-Manuel Miranda

2. "Overture" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

3. "A Conversation" - Performed by Ben Whishaw

4. "Can You Imagine That?" - Performed by Emily Blunt with Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh

5. "The Royal Doulton Music Hall" - Performed by Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh

6. "Introducing Mary Poppins" - Performed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt

7. "A Cover Is Not the Book" - Performed by Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda and Company

8. "The Place Where Lost Things Go" - Performed by Emily Blunt

9. "Turning Turtle" - Performed by Meryl Streep with Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh

10. "Trip a Little Light Fantastic" - Performed by Lin-Manuel Miranda with Emily Blunt, Tarik Frimpong, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson, Nathanael Saleh and Leeries

11. "The Place Where Lost Things Go (Reprise)" - Performed by Joel Dawson, Nathanael Saleh and Pixie Davies

12. "Trip a Little Light Fantastic (Reprise)" - Performed by Dick Van Dyke with Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson and Nathanael Saleh

13. "Nowhere to Go But Up" - Performed by Angela Lansbury, Ben Whishaw, Pixie Davies, Joel Dawson, Nathanael Saleh, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters and Company

14. "(Underneath the) Lovely London Sky (Reprise)" - Performed by Lin-Manuel Miranda

15. "Theme from Mary Poppins Returns" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

16. "Kite Takes Off" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

17. "Mary Poppins Arrives" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

18. "Magic Papers" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

19. "Banks in the Bank" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

20. "Into the Royal Doulton Bowl" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

21. "Rescuing Georgie" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

22. "Off to Topsy's" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

23. "Chase Through the Bank" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

24. "Lost in a Fog" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

25. "Goodbye Old Friend" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

26. "Race to Big Ben" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

27. "End Title Suite" - Performed by Marc Shaiman

Speaking of the music, Disney has officially released The Place Where Lost Things Go and Trip a Little Light Fantastic and honestly these two songs sound so wonderful! Can't wait to hear the rest of them. :D :D :D :D

They aren't as memorable as the songs from the original, but both are better than I expected from the snippets. My favorite of the two is "The Place Where Lost Things Go". It seems to be a combination of "Feed the Birds" and "Stay Awake", in terms of the place it occupies in the movie, though it has of course a different message. I can see both songs nominated to the Oscars, but I don't think they will beat "Shallow" from A Star Is Born.

I was a bit confused by that track at first, but I guess it must be just an introduction to "A Cover Is Not the Book", which is the next track, right? It can't be a song, because it has already been announced that there are just nine songs in total.

Ah! The overture playing after the first musical number seems to mimic The Sound of Music where Maria/Julie Andrews sang the opening number and then the overture/main titles began. The beginning of the overture sampled in the b-roll footage even sounds like the overture to The Sound of Music. Cool!

Looking at the track list, interesting that Colin Firth doesn't have a villain number in the movie (assuming he is indeed playing a villain).

Okay now the music choice is making sense, The Sound of Music had a magnificent opening that still holds up perfectly after 50+ years. I'll bet that the opening violin chords we keep hearing in the trailers will be the first notes of the movie, showing London and introducing Jack and his song which leads to the "Overture".

Well played Rob Marshall, well played. :wink:

I've been revisiting the original's score & songs in anticipation for the sequel ( probably not the wisest choice, I can see that ! ) And I absolutely cannot see how 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' won the Oscar for Best Song out of the ENTIRE songbook of the film. Does anyone know if people were shocked at the time ? Maybe not shocked, that isn't the right word, but certainly isn't the most memorable or most quotable at all. My money would have been on 'A Spoonful of Sugar' or 'Lets Go Fly A Kite' ? Julie Andrews barely sings in 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' as well, which is ironic it was the song that won.

I may be of the minority, but just wanted to share my two cents.

I agree. I had the same thought last night. Of all the songs it’s neither the most flashy nor the most haunting. It’s just sort of . . . there.

Agreed, "A Spoonful of Sugar", "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and especially "Feed the Birds" deserved that Oscar and not the one that won. Heck even "Trip a Little Light Fantastic" is better than "Chim Chim Cher-ee". :P

I've always wondered too why that's the song from the film that won. I think "Chim Chim Cher-ee" is a good song, but I agree that it isn't the most memorable or the most famous one. Well, people's tastes in music change over time, so maybe that song was the one that appealed to voters the most back then. Or maybe the company submitted it because they thought it was the one with a better chance of winning. I don't know how things worked then, if it was the studios that submitted the songs like now or not. But many times the songs that are nominated or win at the Oscars aren't the best or the more popular ones from their films. At least in my opinion. Other example to me is The Lion King. I think there were other songs in the film that we better than "Can You Feel the Love Tonight".

That could be the case with this sequel as well. Probably there are other songs in the film that are better than the ones Disney submitted. I can see why they've selected these ones, though. "The Place Where Lost Things Go" is probably the most emotional one, and "Trip a Little Light Fantastic" must be the biggest dance number.

Nice poster! Also I'm very happy that the movie made it into the Top Ten Films of 2018 by the National Board of Review. :D

"A Spoonful of Sugar" was one of the ten finalists for the original song category in 1964, but the voters opted for "Chim Chim Cher-ee" for the final nomination. So they did consider the other songs as well.

How fascinating estefan, at least it was up for the running I suppose. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who things it was an odd choice to win!

That's really interesting; I had never heard they selected finalists in the category during those years. Thanks for the info, estefan! I'm glad Academy members also liked "A Spoonful of Sugar". And also to see several other Sherman brothers' songs there and other Disney songs like "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat".

Even by judging the trailer/promo footage, some of these shots are just gorgeously framed that I hope that Dion Beebe gets a nomination for Best Cinematography at the Oscars next year.

My body has goosebumps everywhere! This is sure to be a lock for Best Score. My friend was actually at the red carpet last night and said nothing, but raves on Facebook.
