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:
