Fans have been inquiring about Wonderlust by Will Post

Since The Kissing Booth 2 was released on Netflix, many fans have been inquiring about Will Post’s song, Wonderlust, featured in the film’s soundtrack.

Wonderlust is taken from Will Post’s 2018 album, Beautiful Love. You can listen to the entire album and the track Wonderlust here on Spotify.

The song played in the scene where Marco and Elle danced slowly in each other’s arms at the party.

Fans were attracted to the song by its evocative chorus, where the singer says “Not all who wander are lost.”

Many went online to find out more about the song, using search terms that included the line from the song: “Not  all who wander are lost.”

Here is what you need to know about the chorus of Will Post’s song, Wonderlust.

“Not all who wander are Lost” was taken from JRR Tolkien’s  poem

The chorus of Will Post’s song, Wonderlust, was taken from a line in the first stanza of the poem The  Riddle of Strider (aka “All that is gold does not glitter”). The poem appears in J.R.R Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

The poem was written and recited by Tolkien’s character, Bilbo Baggins, at the Council of  Elrond.

“Not all who wander are lost” is also the title of mandolinist Chris Thile’s third solo album, released on Sugar Hill Records label in 2001.
