Maybe’, ‘It’s The Hard-Knock Life’, ‘Tomorrow’, ‘I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here’, ‘Easy Street’, ‘You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile’, ‘Opportunity’, and  ‘I Don’t Need Anything But You’.

While the film incorporates notable songs from the original Broadway production, written by composer Charles Strouse and lyricist Martin Charnin, the songs themselves were rearranged by Sia and Greg Kurstin to reflect its new contemporary setting. Executive music supervisor Matt Sullivan explained that there was a desire to make this new Annie‘s use of music “seamless” rather than “abrupt”, and to maintain the integrity and familiarity of the musical’s most iconic songs, including “Tomorrow” and “It’s the Hard Knock Life”.

The songs were rearranged with a percussive, pop-inspired style: in particular, “It’s the Hard Knock Life”—whilst maintaining the use of “natural” sounds for its rhythm, was updated in a hip hop style. Lyrics to some songs were also updated to reflect the differences in the film’s storyline and settings. Sia and Kurstin wrote three new songs for the soundtrack, including “Opportunity”, “Who Am I”, and “Moonquake Lake”. Sia additionally co-wrote “The City’s Yours” with Stargate.  Wikipedia

Watch Idina Menzel perform ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie live at her Barefoot at the Symphony concert, with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, conducted by Marvin Hamlisch.
