Children of the '90s and Roald Dahl fans alike rejoiced when Matilda made its West End debut as a musical in 2011. The delightful tale of a girl with telekinetic powers standing up to the tyrannical adults of her world, the Matilda soundtrack is a charming collection of songs that capture the childlike whimsy of the original source material. Here, you'll find all Matilda songs ranked by fans! 

Every musical theater fan has an opinion on the best songs in Matilda's track listing. The poignant "When I Grow Up" shows adults and children alike longing for seemingly unobtainable happy endings. Fans of the original film remember the much adored scene in which Bruce Bogtrotter triumphantly ate an entire chocolate cake, and this story is recounted in "Bruce." Browse this playlist below to enjoy these and other tunes.
