The Peanuts Movie Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
The Peanuts comic strip is still one of the most influential in history even though it debuted 65 years ago. According to the strip’s website, it is still printed in nearly every newspaper in the United States. The brand new Peanuts Movie comes to theaters on November 6th. The soundtrack is an entirely original score. It includes a new song by Meghan Trainor, whose debut album ‘Title’ reached #1 in the United States.

Home Alone 25th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack

This 25th anniversary edition soundtrack is a re-release of the original score with additional songs. In 1990, the original score was nominated for an Oscar and a Grammy. The composer, John Williams, has composed some of the best known film scores in the world such as Star Wars, Jaws and Indiana Jones.
