    Not sure if anyone else has done this, but I thought it would be fun.

    1. Audition (The Fools Who Dream)
    2. Another Day of Sun
    3. Start a Fire
    4. Someone in the Crowd
    5. City of Stars
    6. A Lovely Night

    My only quibble with “Audition” is the fact that it’s the film’s emotional centerpiece, but it’s all about a character who is never seen or mentioned at any other point in the movie. Small nit-pick 🙂

    1. Another Day of Sun– Just the perfect way to start off a musical and the only really classic musical ensemble number
    2.  Audition (The Fools Who Dream)
    3.  City of Stars
    4. Start a Fire
    5. Someone in the Crowd
    6. A Lovely Night

    1. “Audition”
    2. “City of Stars”
    3. “A Lovely Night”
    4. “Someone in the Crowd”
    5. “Another Day of Sun”
    6. “Start a Fire”

    I only think “Audition” is worthy of Oscar consideration, though.

    I had avoided listening to these songs before seeing the film, which I finally did yesterday. It’s shocking how bad the music (songs included) on this film is so poor and disposable. Any Broadway/West End musical based on them would have flopped in a couple of weeks. In a way, it explains why Chazelle goes out of his way to overcompensate with his fireworks aligned with his “style”.

    Having said that, the John Legend song at his concert is easily the best one, despite the movie telling us that it’s the sell-out moment (he adds unrealistic dancers in that scene to make sure everyone understands that YES, GOSLING IS SELLING OUT).

    Musically, those Disney Channel musicals with Zac Efron etc have better music, if anything because at least they don’t lie about their own worth.
