Molly mini-series gets 60-song soundtrack

Liberation Music will release a three-CD soundtrack to the Seven Network’s upcoming Molly Meldrum mini-series on November 27.

The long-awaited two-part series, simply titled Molly, is produced by Mushroom Pictures with Samuel Johnson (check him in character above) in the title role.

The epic soundtrack, Do Yourself a Favour, boasts 60 songs across three discs: the first two include the songs from the program with the third disc handpicked by Molly, featuring some of his favourite pop songs.

“It’s a surreal experience watching your life on screen,” Molly says. “For me, it only really makes sense when I listen to the music, the songs that are on this soundtrack.”
