La La Land (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is the soundtrack album to the 2016 film La La Land. The soundtrack album was released through Interscope Records on December 9, 2016. The album has peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard 200 and number 1 on the UK Albums Chart.

The songs and score for La La Land were composed and orchestrated by Justin Hurwitz, Chazelle's Harvard University classmate, who also worked on his two prior films. The lyrics were written by Pasek and Paul, except for "Start a Fire", which was written by John Legend, Hurwitz, Marius de Vries and Angélique Cinélu. At the 89th Academy Awards, it won the Oscar for Best Original Score, as well as Best Original Song for "City of Stars". – Wiki

“Falling in love has always worked better with a soundtrack. What would Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s prance through the streets in (500) Days of Summer have mattered without the bounce of Hall & Oates “You Make My Dreams”? Lord knows we only tolerate Ben Affleck awkwardly trotting animal crackers up Liv Tyler’s stomach in Armageddon because it’s paired with Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”. Ever since talkies found the value of song, the silver screen has had a penchant for pairing bursting hearts with the perfect tune.

The same formula might’ve worked just fine for La La Land, the sophomore film from writer-director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash). It would’ve been easy to back scenes of moonlit tap-dancing and dark theater hand-holding with the work of Adele and Ella Fitzgerald. Instead, Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz have created a soundtrack of original songs that stand toe to toe with the great movie musicals of the past.” – Consequence of Sound
