Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.why does Amity say (traditional)?Just rip it off the DVD....no biggieAll credits added for the OST, even though since it's long montages from lots of cues, it doesn't make THAT much sense... :)Which cues were written by Steve Jablonsky?
me too!No piano. I believe it was mostly strings and had a small bit of the choir.Which instruments were used to play the love theme? Piano?<br>There was also a Jean/Scott love theme that was briefly used in the bedroom scene after they return from space. It was included in the end credits suite as well.CD RELEASE?
Yes! That piano part is amazing! <br>„when charles and jean stand in front of the school“Saw the movie. Great score and it really fits the movie.<br><br>Missing stuff:<br>- 25 seconds of a piano version of Gap without the brass and bells<br>- a 30 second badass version of the main theme during the mageneto/jean helicopter stand off<br>- 1.5 minute end credits suite. Typical Zimmer to leave the best and most epic track and best main theme version off the album. I hope it will be on CD2, but knowing Zimmer the best tracks always remain unreleased. This is another escape from ship...after listening and listening...this score is truly amazing! i love it so much! i want the suites and ideas NOW! :DWhere can I find this?been listening to this score for a week now and i am going to wait a little more before putting a comment on it here... but there's something else i have been saying for a while now. let's stop associating scores with movies and start seeing them as a work of art in their own rights. (albeit inspired by movies)<br><br>people are here complaining about the movie that it didn't speak to them. and then i have the feeling that they project their disappointment on the soundtrack. but both pieces of art co-exist and not depend on each other. i, for example, seldom watch any of these movies. but i have listened to their soundtracks and love them.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before... but we need one for this one. it's very clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.<br><br>also i never asked for an extended CD before but we need one for DP. it's clear that tracks like gap and coda were definitely shortened.
There's nothing unique about those choirs, standard East European chorus stuff mixed with Johansson. Check out Debbie Wiseman's Warriors from 2000 and you'll get a much more elaborate version of this music.I cant say that this chorus reminds me of anything I have heard Zimmer done before. And I have played all his scores to death.I agree that Gap is the best track. My main complain with this score is that it feels that Zimmer composed it on autopilot. For me those choirs sounded too much to Electro's Theme in TASM. Is too standard and has very few remarkable moments. The movie itself lacks of personality and the score is part of that problem. I think they just wanted "dark" and hired Zimmer for making his dark ostitatos.I thought I read somewhere Armageddon was the last bay film that hgw was a part of<br>===============================<br><br><br>Well, Bay and HGW were not exactly best friends during Armageddon. Bay is very demanding and tough. HGW is also not a shy dude. He is an opinionated guy who stands his ground, as you can tell by his interviews. He reminds me of Mancina…..He's not afraid to speak up and have his opinion heard. And just like Mancina, his relationship with the Bay/Bruckheimer family seemed to be...….a bit complicated. Yet, he worked on Bad Boys 2 and Deja Vu. Now, it is possible - tho not likely - that Bay didn't even know that HGW did some work on BB2. Maybe it was just a favor for Steve and Trevor. Under the table, so to speak..... Personally, I don't believe that's the case. Whatever the truth, this is a great example of how different those composers are. Trevor and Steve work great with Bay/Bruckheimer and they always deliver great results. While composers like HGW and Mancina have problems with more demanding filmmakers. And apparently they don't even like action cinema. I don't necessary blame them, even though Mancina certainly didn't do himself any favors by trashing the genre and the people who back in the 90's gave him a shot to prove himself as a composer.Love John Powell. But he is not even close to Williams. Williams made his mark on every genre of film scoring. He freaking turn a holocaust movie score into a masterpiece for the ages.<br><br>Today, that score would have been some generic sound design.<br><br>Powell is an incredibly gifted orchestral composer. But he doesn't have the dimensions of someone like Williams. <br><br>

Hello, friend. I've been looking everywhere for the whole translation of God Yu Tekkem Laef Blong Mi... Can you help me out with that? also, is it very expensive to travel to the Solomon Islands? how can I go there?

I'm looking for Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi, but not the choir, the score.
Appears at the begining of the film, before the ship
(Witt is looking the members of the island)
Anybody knows if exist a complete score or something like that in which appears?

Thank you very much!!!

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me
Jesus is watching over me no matter what I do his love will never cease

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me

My savior and my king are beside me all the best things he has provided me
He is there to comfort and guide me and his love will never cease

Jesus is watching over me wherever I may go he is right beside me
Jesus is watching over me no matter what I do his love will never cease

Q: Could you post the original lyrics and english translations of God, yu tekem laef blong me and Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blom Mi? (from Nezzalar in Spain)
A:

Jisas, yu holem hand blong mi
Tekem long blong mi antrane quaia for yu
Hitlas huayebe gusa ki
long lis hala waala conyi kaiai for yu - hee eeh

Jisas, yu canda yira huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa huu-huu-huu
Fracissas ni canda hirla huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa

Bolwa yu candai quero yu
for sethe santayu for ya-for sis for mi
Wosre yu rere hi for her
rara efisuah en gus rasor

Jisas, yu canda yira huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa huu-huu-huu
fracissas ni canda hirla huu-huu-huu
hinte querri hissa

The Pijin lyrics for "Jisas Yu Holem Han Blong Me" floating around the internet are incorrect. It looks like someone just typed sounds they heard from the recording. I speak Solomon Pijin; here are the correct lyrics and translation:

Jisas yu holem han blong mi (Jesus, hold my hand)
Yu tekem han blong mi (take my hand)
Aba mi kraeaot fo yu (Abba, I cry out for you)
Yu nao faen evri gud samting (You find every good thing)
Long disfala wol (in this world)
Aba mi kraeaot fo yu (Abba, I cry out for you)

Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem, uuu (Take me now)
San Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Son Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem (Take me now)

Baba mi daon tenk yu long yu (Abba, I humbly thank you)
Fo sendem San blo yu fo dae fo sins blong mi (for sending your Son who died for my sins)
Waswe i re-redi fo hem (So I will be ready for him)
Baba hem i kam, mek yu dae fo (Abba, he will come again)

Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Jesus, I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem, uuu (Take me now)
San Jisas mi kam long yu nao, uuu (Son Jesus I come to you now)
Yu tekem mi distaem (Take me now)

I'm kind of amazed by the overwhelming sonority of the melanesian choirs and especially the song Jisas Yu Holem Hand Blong Mi...

I'd wish to sing this song in our school choir upon occasion of the graduation farewell church service and I 've been looking desperately for its lyrics so far...

Is there any possibility to find or purchase the lyrics or even the notes?

thank you very much:)
