‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ Lyrics From ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Will Make You Sob

Mary Poppins Returns is shaping up to be Disney’s smash hit of the holiday season. Early review tweets are practically ecstatic, and while full reviews are still under embargo, audiences have the sense this might be Disney first massively successful sequel to an old-school property in the company’s 90-year history. Julie Andrews has given her blessing to pass the torch to Emily Blunt to take over the role of the umbrella traveling English nanny. Blunt’s new song, "The Place Where Lost Things Go" from Mary Poppins Returns sounds like she might just live up to carrying that carpet bag.

The soundtrack to Mary Poppins Returns hits shelves next week, Dec. 7, 2018, only a couple of weeks ahead of the film’s release. To celebrate, Disney Music releases not one but two leading singles ahead of the movie’s arrival, one featuring Blunt as Poppins, and the other starring Lin-Manuel Miranda as "Jack The Lamplighter," a role which fills the "Bert The Chimney Sweep" part played by Dick Van Dyke in the 1964 film.

Blunt’s Poppins number isn’t a silly "Spoonful of Sugar" tune, but something more akin to the original "Stay Awake" lullaby, or "Feed The Birds" with a softer, downtempo, wistful sound. Take a listen:

Meanwhile, Miranda’s song is a number clearly standing in for the "Chim Chim Cher-ee" song Van Dyke is famous for, including pauses in the song for dance breaks and character banter.

Check it out.

The Mary Poppins Returns soundtrack is massive by the way, 27 tracks strong when all is said and done. It’s available for pre-order from Amazon with the leading tracks streaming via Spotify.

Mary Poppins Returns arrives in theaters Dec. 19, 2018. Tickets are available for pre-sale at most theaters now.
