Wish Upon
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Artists: Various
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 14 July 2017

Lakeshore Records release the original soundtrack for the film Wish Upon. The album features the original song 'Be Careful What You Wish For' by Wayfarers, along with tracks by Hey Violet, Grace Mitchell, Kil The Giant, Lili Ray, and Leo Soul (feat. Lili Ray). The film follows 17-year-old Clare Shannon who is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends, Meredith and June. So, when her dad gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner’s wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Clare makes her first wish and, to her surprise, it comes true. Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect - until the people closest to her begin dying in gruesome and twisted ways. Now, with blood on her hands, Clare has to get rid of the box, before it costs her and everyone she loves the ultimate price...

For a modern audience the various artists soundtrack to Wish Upon is packed full of upbeat pop-based songs. I'm not normally a fan of various artists soundtracks, but there isn't a dull filler track anywhere to be seen. This album is overflowing with memorably, catchy tunes.

The album contains 12 tracks (34 min, 22 sec) and even gives listener's a taster of tomandandy's score (which is available to pick up separately). On balance pop-based soundtracks don't come more polished than this.
