[Pop Rock/Showtune Soundtrack:] The Greatest Show – Panic! at the Disco
One of the biggest buzzes in music news this week is the return of Panic! at the Disco with their song “The Greatest Show” in a re-imagined, re-worked soundtrack of the Oscar nominated musical “The Greatest Showman.” Brendon Urie, front man of the band said he was “excited to add a little of [his] own theatrics” to the song, according to The Rolling Stone.
The song certainly channels that signature Panic! at the Disco sound. Moments after the song starts it is instantly recognizable to anyone who’s been a fan, or even those casually exposed to Panic!, like I was for most of my senior year of high school. Their unique sound, and an impressive performance, won Urie the “Best Alternative” award at the European Music Television Awards on November, 4th, in Bilbao, Spain. Check it out below:
The re-worked version has incredibly uplifting energy and theatrical harmonics certainly deserving of awards. Also on the soundtrack are other songs from the film, re-imagined by other popular artists. These include songs featuring P!nk’s already-released “A Million Dreams,” as well as a reprised version sung by her daughter, as well as new covers from Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, Pentatonix and more.
