Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #116 – “(Underneath the) Lovely London Sky,” from Mary Poppins Returns
116. “(Underneath the) Lovely London Sky,” from Mary Poppins Returns
This is the opener, introducing us to the Lin-Manuel Miranda/Dick Van Dyke character and reintroducing us to the world and all that. It’s a nice tune. Though every time I hear the orchestrations on these songs, something sounds a bit… off, with them. I can’t figure out what it is. But in terms of all the songs in this new Poppins movie, this is one of the better ones.
