There are only a handful of months until we get pitch-slapped again, and the Pitch Perfect 2 music and mashups still have not been revealed. The only song we heard the Bellas singing in the trailer was a slowed-down version of "Cups" with beautiful harmonies, which doesn't give us a good idea of what to expect. Will there be more Bruno Mars intertwined with old-school rap, or a new remix of "I Saw the Sign"? The cast is keeping mostly tight-lipped, but star Brittany Snow revealed to E! News that we can expect some craziness. "There are a lot of mashups in this one and there's this one performance in which we actually go insane and do all this great stuff," she teased. "I [use a] glow stick and there's hula-hooping. There's all sorts of madness. We got to get a little down and dirty." In the trailer we saw the girls get physically dirty in the mud and hosed off, but it sounds like she's hinting at some sexier music instead.
Although I'd love PP2 to include something like Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" or Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk," those songs came out after the film had already wrapped. In fact, most of the music from the movie was probably put together before the end of 2013. So with a slightly limited catalog of tunes in mind, I've came up with three mashups that the sequel should include, particularly ones the ladies can get down and dirty to.
Alex Clare's "Too Close" & Next's "Too Close"
They could slow it down for something like "And it feels like I am just too close to love you/Baby when we're grinding/I get so excited/Ooh, how I like it/I try but I can't fight it."
Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" & Drake's "Fancy"
This would be a Bellas vs. Treblemakers situation with repeats of "Oh, you fancy, huh?/I'm so fancy, you already know" and "Hair did, nails did, everything done/Cup of Ace, cup of Goose, cup of Cris/High heels, somethin' worth a half a ticket on my wrist."
Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" & Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" & *NSYNC's "Pop"
This trifecta would be titled "Talk Dirrty Pop" and go a little something like this: "Been around the world, don't speak the language/But your booty don't need explaining/All I really need to understand is/Dirty pop/Baby you can't stop/I know you like/When you talk dirty to me/Let's get dirrty (that's my jam)/I need that, uh, to get me off/Sweatin' until my clothes come off."
