'Pitch Perfect 2' stars pick playlists for their pitches

Pitch Perfect 2—you know, that little box office-busting musical about a cappella—is coming to Blu-ray Sept. 22, and two of its stars are celebrating the occasion by looking back on filming with their own personal playlists.

Chrissie Fit and Flula Borg—two of the sequel’s fresh faces who joined as new Bella Flo and rival singer Pieter, respectively—curated their lists on streaming service Rdio; Fit chose songs that reminded her of her fellow Barden Bellas, while Borg opted for songs to enjoy “while eating foods, napping, or breathing airs.”

Fit tells EW that her nostalgic list—which features tunes like R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” and Jefferson Starships’s “Jane”—is all about songs “that we would jam to on our way to rehearsals, practiced over and over again at rehearsals, and songs we could ‘crush’ at karaoke bars. Some songs are actually written by a Bella (I’m looking at you, Dean!). This playlist takes me back to those three months and all the Bella bonding we did.”

On the flip side, Borg’s list includes Peter Schilling’s “Major Tom (Völlig Losgelöst)” and Falco’s “Vienna Calling.” He writes: “Sometimes my Booty and Heart are feeling sad, like a Rabbit who was enjoying delishus Carrots when all in sudden, PLÜFF! A Hurricane destroys the Carrots. When I feel like this hungry rabbit, these are the songs I play.”

Whatever that means, it’s worth a listen.
