Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow return to save their a cappella group, the Barden Bellas, in Elizabeth Banks’ new movie, “Pitch Perfect 2.” The Bellas are in desperate need to get their groove back after a catastrophic performance all but strips them of their multiple national titles. Now the girls must assemble the perfect soundtrack to conquer the international champions, Das Sound Machine.
Before the Bellas hit their world tour, let’s warm up with some of the “Pitch Perfect 2” songs. Come on, you know the words:
1. “Wrecking Ball”
This Fat Amy (Wilson) solo bought the house down in “Pitch Perfect 2.” Really, she almost destroys the Barden Bellas with her performance of this Miley Cyrus song at the Kennedy Center.
2. “Before He Cheats”
Break out the cowboy boots for this cover of Carrie Underwood’s ultimate revenge song. The Bellas use this number in the middle of a themed challenge titled “Country Love.”
3. “A Thousand Miles”
Follow the Bellas as they revisit the early aughts with this Vanessa Carleton jam from 2000.
4. “Lady Marmalade”
Whether it’s the 1975 Patti LaBelle original or the Christina Aguilera cover from 2002, this sexy song will always get your attention.
5. “We Belong”
Another Fat Amy solo brings this classic Pat Benatar ‘80s power ballad to the mix of mostly new songs in "Pitch Perfect 2."
6. “Run the World (Girls)”
It’s a perfect fit for the Bellas of “Pitch Perfect 2” to hold a prime spot for this Queen Bey anthem. The all-girl group owns this rendition of the Beyoncé song.
You can rock out to the a cappella versions of these songs on the “Pitch Perfect 2” soundtrack now available on iTunes. “Pitch Perfect 2” lands in theaters May 15.
