Music from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2


This is a total guilty pleasure. I secretly loved the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie, and the second installment holds up too. All the girls are back together again for a new adventure. It’s a year later, freshman year of college is finishing and the girls are once again going their separate ways. But life has a way of bringing friends back together when they need it most. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 does it with style and one hell of a soundtrack.

There are 29 songs in the movie, plus the original score by Rachel Portman. It is quite a selection, from the not so surprising Regina Spektor, Michelle Branch and Cyndi Lauper (“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” of course); to the same but with a bit of an edge from Hot Hot Heat, Noisettes and Dollyrots; to songs I would not quite expect, including Talib Kweli, Mutemath, Aqualung and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Plus, there are a fair number of Greek and other international songs, including tracks from Anestos Athanasiou, Rhani Krija and Ahmet Senyüz.

The soundtrack to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 is a varied as the girls themselves and ties the movie together very well. I highly recommend taking a listen. Only 11 of the 29 songs are on the official soundtrack, but you can find the videos and downloads for all of them on ReelSoundtrack.

Or you can check out the soundtrack album directly on Amazon.

For your musical pleasure, here are a couple of the videos from the songs. Enjoy!

  1. so is against me! song on sisterhood 2?

  2. I caught the end of the movie on HBO and the last song over the credits was the best song in the movie: Eric Hutchinson’s “Rock & Roll,” a really fine, steppin’ out song with a terrific lyric and a great backbeat. Nowhere have I seen this song credited, and it deserves credit.
