la la land still

So La La Land didn't win Best Picture, but it definitely wins Most Coverable Soundtrack.

We’re all going crazy for La La Land, and the awards continue to flood in - the movie scooped 14 nominations and 7 wins at this year’s Academy Awards, including Best Original Score for composer Justin Hurwitz.

Not to mention one nearly-win in the Best Picture category (poor Moonlight):

 

Everyone wants a piece of the magic: La La Land looks set to become the most-covered film music on YouTube since everyone was interminably singing the song from Frozen.

Here are our top favourite covers of the La La Land soundtrack:

They always nail their covers, so no surprise that this one is completely gorgeous. See more on YouTube.
