City of Stars from La La Land


The tunes from the movie La La Land are catchy and sticky. I daresay all songs are played on the piano, and as such pianists everywhere will feel emboldened to figure out the notes. I am positively sure that one of the songs will get an Oscar. [Feb 27: in fact, this song did win the 2017 Oscar for best song from a movie!]

“City of Stars” is a duet between the two protagonists of this fairy tale.  This song brings back fond memories of my first visit to Utah, where I saw the movie and learned Thai cooking and other secrets to health and happiness.

Click on the sample below to get the three-page PDF I’ve arranged for easy piano. Play it with a swing (not metronomically as written) throughout.
