Covering IT’s Soundtrack

Andy Muschietti did do justice to the work of Stephen King and Tommy Lee Wallace by recreating the story of Pennywise. This goes hand in hand with the musical soundtrack originally by Richard Bellis.

She misheard “he laid him on the green” as “Lady Mondegreen” from the Scottish ballad “The Bonny Earl o Moray”. Continue reading What did you say?; Misheard Lyrics
