Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Motion Picture Soundtrack


A weird and wild ride.

The Grinch’s soundtrack is at least three fire emojis – though it’s probably not traditional Christmas family dinner listening.

It opens with back-to-back Tyler, The Creator gems – ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch’ is a perfectly eerie reworking of the classic theme, while ‘I Am the Grinch’ is one of the soundtrack’s best.

From there, other highlights include the Run-DMC ’90s-tinged funk of ‘Christmas Is’, The Brian Setzer Orchestra’s rockabilly-swing take on ‘Jingle Bells’ and Pentatonix’s layered, magical reworking of ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’.

There are also a couple of gorgeous Danny Elfman pieces from the film’s score that end everything beautifully.

It’s a weird and wild ride (as you’d probably expect from a film soundtrack) but this is the perfect Christmas combo for those of us who aren’t so fond of the classics.
