u guys need to update JNW's page cause there's a new album out composed by him (The Green Lantern) :)
I hate to break this out but....
The Green Lantern OSt really sucks....Its like He's trying too hard to be like Zimmer. Which is exactly what Doyle did with Thor...Tried too hard. but Doyle's score was way more coherent than this one...
Hey hans!!!! You're music is great!!!! I can't imagine how so many great melodies can come into your mind.....I love especially the "pirates of the carribean" melodies!!! They are sooooo wonderful!!!!Go on writing such amazing songs and melodies!!! Every movie with your melody gets much, much better!!!! LOVE....your FAN!!
Hans and team just want to thank you for such a great website.
Hans, Thank you so much for being such a huge inspiration to me. You are the reason i began composing music.
No one knows how to get the best out of a movie with music like you do. I'm constantly amazed how your draw such emotion from every scene. Even a simple scene can have such a huge effect just because of the way you score it.
I've watched every movie you have worked on, from 'success is the best revenge', 'the zero boys' (you even made that good to watch) to 'prince of Egypt', 'Gladiator', 'last samurai' and everything else you have done.
I look forward more to your movies coming out than i do my own Birthday.
Thanks again Mark Stothard. www.reverbnation.com/markstothard
As a life long enthusiast of sea chanties and old songs on nautical themes, I must say I am stunned by the beauty of "Jolly Sailor Bold" from the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. When I saw the movie, I though to myself 'How have I missed this song among all the traditional songs of the sea I have heard?' I assumed it was of folk song a couple of centuries old. I was so surprised to find out it is a modern composition! I was further surprised to find out the composer isn't even a native speaker of English.
You crafted a work of art that sounds straight out of some waterfront of the early 19th century. Your choice of archaic turns of phrase, the slightly awkward fit of some of the words to the meter of the tune, and the imperfect transitions in a couple of verses give it the feel of a song that existed in several slightly different versions that periodically got recombined by different singers and passed on orally to new performers over many years.
I am curious to know how you came to be so familiar with traditional English songs of sailors and the sea. I am equally curious why the song is not included in the soundtrack CD from Pirates. I, for one, would buy it instantly if available. And given the number of places on the net that I found with people asking where to get the lyrics, recording of the song, and such, I think someone made a big mistake leaving it off the CD.
To give some sense of the level of interest, I found on YouTube about a dozen different videos of people who had found the lyrics and recorded the song themselves, a cappella, accompanied by classical harp, piano, you name it. The movie has been open less than a week. Clearly your work has touched a chord among music lovers. It is one form of popularity to find many pirated copies of a recorded song on the net - it is something very different to find so many individuals recording themselves singing it in so short a time.
This song is nothing short of a work of genius. Thank you for creating it.
In der Hoffnung dass Sie dieses hier lesen, möchten wir Ihnen kurz unser Projekt vorstellen. Wir drehen einen Dokumentarfilm über Unwetter in der Schweiz und Europa. Dazu gehören auch Klimawandel und vieles mehr.
Unsere Frage an Sie wäre nun: Dürfen wir ein paar Teile aus einigen Soundtracks für unsere Filmmusik verwenden? Ihr Name wird im Film erwähnt. Ersterer ist der von Madagaskar.
Hallo Herr Zimmer :) Ich schreibe Ihnen hier in der Hoffnung, dass sie das lesen. Ich habe seit zwei Jahren einen Freund, der eine große Leidenschaft für Filmmusik hat, seitdem er hm ca 13-14 Jahre alt ist. Es wäre schön, wenn es machbar wäre mir eine Autogrammkarte von Ihnen zu schicken. Er fiebert wirklich bei jeder Oscar-verleihung mit und Sie inspirieren Ihn sehr! Es wär schön, wenn Sie oder Ihr Team mir eine Email schicken könnten, damit ich Ihnen die Adresse schicken kann. Ganz liebe Grüße Sinead
For so many years I have wondered if there would ever be a way to express the profound depth of gratitude I continually feel every time I listen to the brief 75 second theme you shared in the film "Driving Miss Daisy" which was used in several scenes: the retrospective in the empty home after Daisy was moved to an assisted living arrangement, the cemetary scene where Freeman is looking for the right headstone, and the last scene where he's helping her eat her pie. I used to study music and film in college, and it's been a life-long joy going back over half a century, but never have I EVER heard a theme that so tenderly and deeply expresses the over-arching spirit of a film as your brief composition in "Daisy." Quite honestly, it literally brings me to tears every time I hear it. I particularly love the sublime transition from a single sustained note at the beginning to the delicate, child-like wonder of what sounds like a harpsichord which then grows stronger into a fuller body of gentle affirmation. There's no way to express how deeply moved I am by this precious musical treasure. Thank you SO much.
Sehr geehrter Hans Zimmer, ich finde leider keine Worte für ihre Fähigkeiten, solch perfekte Lieder zu komponieren! Ich würde mich sehr freuen wenn sie ein Angebot von Infinity Ward annehmen, um Modern Warfare 3 zu veredeln mit ihren atemberaubenden Musikstücken!! Danke für alles.
I have made a short video and would like to use your theme song for the movie "Broken Arrow." I have used another non-copyrighted song that is similar in the video, but as I am sure you will agree it does not compare!
My short video is entitled "EYESPOT is the Bomb!" and can be found on YouTube.
Who do I need to contact to get permission to use a short part of your Broken Arrow Theme song?
Keep up the great work!

Ciao Hans ,adoro le tue musiche,non hanno bisogno di immagini ,le tue note fanno volare alta la fantasia.Ho messo le parole ad alcuni brani dei pirati dei caraibi e ho costruito uno spettacolo che portiamo in giro sul lago di Bracciano(roma)se passi da questa parti ti aspetto.Un Bacio da Sabrina.
I always thought that the music of Hans Zimmer deleted the complexities of harmony from other classical music. For me, the most interesting thing about this composer is the way he use the instruments and orchestra. Every time I hear the soundtracks of Gladiator, Lion King, Inception, Angels and Demons ... I can understand every move, the reason of the music. It's more than music stage. Good work, Zimmer. Very good work.
I'm a big fan of all of your music and I love the music you composed for Inception. "Old Souls" takes me to a different world every time I listen. As summer approaches, I look forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and I have been constantly checking to see if previews would be available for your score. Today, I listened to the previews available on Amazon. Even though the previews were between 30 and 40 seconds, I'm a little concerned for the score. It's great that you are doing collaborations with other artists and creating music that you think fits the film best, but I don't understand why there is such little amount of your great original score. I'm assuming that the several remixes (included on the soundtrack) are not going to be played during the actual film because it would definitely transform the meaning and the world of the film in a significantly different way. Like you (or whoever was in charge of it) released two bonus tracks for Inception, I hope you do the same for Pirates 4. I'm also assuming that movie is at least 2 hours or even more (since the past movies have run for a great length). I'm not saying that your music is off key, I just want to hear more of it, especially if there is other music in the film. Whoever agrees with my perspective of this probably also feels that we are being cheated. Hopefully, some other tracks can be released.
