Looks like the sessions are out there! "Thneedville Care Chase" is the film verion of "Thneedville Chase" from the original album. Wonderful score. I hope that someday the complete thing is released (leaked).
For those (very few) who want to the score and the songs chronologically, here's my ordering:
Thneedville Ted, Audrey and the Trees Granny to the Edge Wasteland Truffula Valley Fantasy This Is the Place Once-ler & Lorax Meet O'Hare Warns Ted The River Bed Houseguests Everybody Needs a Theed How Bad Can I Be? Valley Exodus The Last Seed Thneedville Chase At the Park Let It Grow Funeral for a Tree Let It Grow (Celebrate the World)
The rest of the songs on the Interscope Records album are demos that aren't in the movie.
Does anybody know if Powell is actually doing that new Pixar movie entitled "The Good Dinosaur"? It's been on his IMDb page for so long that it could be true...
IMDb had listed Powell as the composer of the Toy Story short film (Hawaiian Vacation) for some time (way after it's release, in fact) until his name was replaced (fairly recently actually) with Mark Mothersbaugh. So it's probably not the best place to get precise information on upcoming composer projects, especially those with release dates set way in the future.
I'd welcome a Pixar/Powell collaboration, nonetheless.
funeral for a tree uses a tune from another song, what is it? its some sort of irish folk sad song I think.
The piano tune is from the song "Let it Grow," which is also written by John Powell for the film. (Plus, I'm definitely no expert on Irish folk music, but I thought "Let it Grow" was supposed to be slightly gospel.)
Bought the soundtrack from iTunes today. It's a pretty interesting, and sometimes strange, melange of instruments and styles, but it still has John Powell written all over it. Some of the piano and female vocals are especially lovely! A very fun and engaging score which conveys a lot of diverse moods! My favorite tracks are "Ted, Audrey and the Trees," "Truffula Valley Fantasy," "Valley Exodus," "Thneedville Chase," and "Funeral for a Tree."
