NewsHans' BiographyTeam (Present & Past)DiscographyMediaArchivesJukeboxFan CoversAbout/Feedback

Main theme is on Youtube. I quite like it. I prefer Hans doing themes like this rather than the stuff he is doing with FIFA.I'm surprised no one is talking about this one, its one of Rupert's best scores imo.Lately I have been listening to the album carefully, and the truth is that I did not quite understand why Hans did not just use a big orchestra instead of the synthesizer.It would have really been interesting to see Ritcher scoring a chase on the photo, although without a doubt his work would not have been anything generic.Richter is a conceptual artist, I love his Leftovers score, but come one, scoring to picture ?<br><br>He writes pieces that are used in scenes, not the other way around...<br><br>Richter scoring a moon buggy chase ? Hell no... lol you could see from day one it was gonna be replaced...
^ Yeah the edit floating around matches Felix’s almost to a T. Only major difference is <br><br>“Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale”<br><br>Which is broken up into four separate cues. Realistically you could edit it anyway you want if you prefer the smaller cues. Personally, I like the long suite-like format of this release. Kinda like the album release for “Event Horizon” lol.I hope they at least release Richter's score.My Edit:<br><br>01. Rise Of An Empire - Marathon - King Darius - Artemisia - Man To God - War (13:36)<br>= <br><br>M1A Rise of An Empire (09:48)<br>M1B From Man to God King (03:44)<br><br>02. Greek Council - Persian War Plan - Spartan Fight Training - Greek Conversation - Your Commander Is Greek (10:47) <br>=<br><br>M2 Greek Council (03:39)<br>M3 Greek Conversation (07:06)<br><br>05. Suicide - General Bandari - Circle Battle (7:30) <br>=<br><br>M6 Suicide/General Bandari (02:10)<br>M7 Circle Battle (05:16)<br><br>06. Sex - Fire Battle (12:04) <br>=<br><br>M10 Sex (05:36)<br>M11 Fire Battle (06:21)<br><br>11. Our Final Stand - Showdown - United Greece - Finale (16:08) <br>=<br><br>M15-17A Our Final Stand/Showdown Pt.1 (08:19)<br>M17B-19 Showdown Pt.2/Finale (07:37)I'm not really interested in Balfe's part of work, but it would be a big disappointment if Richter's work wouldn't released.<br><br>But I think there's a good chance that movie (and music in particular) get an Oscar nominations, so let's just hope for the best.@mpolonest123 any idea how to break up the really long cues on the complete? it’s a lot of tracks that are made up of several cues
Artemisia Suite = History of Artemisia <br>Greek Action Suite = Marathon <br>Xerxes Rebirth Suite = From Man to God King<br>Greek Sacrifice Suite = ???<br>Artemisia’s Childhood Suite = Artemisia’s Childhood<br>Greek Attack Suite = Greeks on Attack<br>Queen Gorgo Suite = Queen Gorgo<br>Xerxes Thoughts Suite = Xerxes Thoughts<br>Greek History Suite = History of the Greeks<br>Greek Victory Suite = Greeks Are Winning<br><br>Hope this helps! :-)Hybrid can you tell us what album cues are the suites ?!well, from what Lorne wrote on Twitter, it should be releasedCool thanks for getting back! I am still a little bit confused though. Do any Basil Poledouris cues go somewhere in that list? It’s been a very very long time since I have seen the film.The Hans cues used are :<br><br>1M1 OPENING CREDITS / MAIN TITLE (USED FROM 2:18 TO 3:03)<br>1M2 GOLDEN STAIRCASE (USED FROM 0:00 TO 1:56)<br>2M2 JACK SEES WOLVES<br>2M3 BLACK WOLF<br>2M6 THE TREK CONTINUES (USED FROM 0:28 TO 1:15)<br>3M1 THIN ICE<br>3M2 SKUNKER'S DEATH<br>3M3 FULL MOON WOLF ATTACK<br>3M3A MORNING WOLF ATTACK<br>6M4 THE BEAR<br>6M4A THE BEAR ATTACK<br>7M3 IN THE STABLE<br>7M5 WHITE FANG FIGHTS SATAN<br>8M1 FIGHT MONTAGE (FIRST HALF USED)<br>8M3 PIT FIGHT (FINAL 20 SEC USED)<br><br>All the rest, by definition, is Basil's score...
Hey hybrid soldier! You mentioned on the ghost in the shell page about white fang so I came here! Can you give us a list of the cues as they appear in the film please? The Basil Poledouris cues and the Hans Zimmer cues pleaseI imagined it ... hopefully this time Max Ritcher does not give him a lollipop and refuses to launch his musicYes Unbreakable.
<br>Exactly like White Fang. Have Poledouris write a score, then HZ do another, then pick what you want from both.
<br>Ghost In The Shell was kinda different...In the credits of the movie, Max Ritcher appears as the Main Composer, meanwhile, Lorne appears as Additional MusicI find that it would be best to accredit both and launch the two soundtracks and all happy.

Some of the best music from that movie is during the final Daytona Race. Over 8 minutes pure action music and its still not on any promo, bootleg etc. Heard that the composer of that part was Mark Mancina ?

Nord2013-11-07 03:28:16
It definitely wasn't Mancina

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-07 10:49:39
Source? Because I've heard plenty of people say it is.

hybrid2013-11-07 13:38:10
No Edmund, it's just Clemmensen who wrote that 15 years ago and it stuck and everyone went with it as Gospel, but there have never been any proof of that. I sent a message to Mancina, let's see...

Anonymous2013-11-07 13:39:29
It's on the new limited edition release from La La Land, no?

Hybrid Soldier2013-11-07 13:42:15
And yeah I wrote that above.

And yeah apparently it is on the LLL... :)

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-07 17:30:35
Oh okay. I didn't know Clemmensen was the one who started that, but I've just heard people mentioning it in various forums. Although come to think of it, how could he have written it 15 years ago considering he didn't write a review of Days of Thunder until 2010? :p

Either way, can't wait to hear it.

Poe2013-11-08 00:43:39
Filmtracks has been online since the late 90s. However, a while ago Clemmensen went back and rewrote a lot of earlier reviews.

Edmund Meinerts2013-11-08 01:08:21
Yes, I know, but the Days of Thunder review was part of a relatively recent series on early Zimmer works. The review page says when it was written, which in this case is the 19th of March, 2010. If it was a rewrite of an old review it would say "Last Edited" and have an older "Written on" date.

Believe me, I know how the place works. Much to Hybrid's irritation, I can imagine. :p

Not you McArthur, that was for Hybrid.

Hybrid Soldier2013-10-31 20:24:13
My initial comment was because you instanly thought you would share the news on that forsaken bootleg page while I ALREADY had created a page for the LLL Release.

In other words, EPIC FAIL ! ;) :P

It's not commercially available yet, but rumor has it that La La Land Records is going to release it soon.

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-02 00:00:00
I just looked it up on wikipedia, and it says Jeff Beck played all the guitars for the score. To my knowledge this is the only time he has ever collaborated with Media Ventures.

Hope that helps!

Maybe some other Idea ???

I don´t think that Pete haycock played this song because i can´t find it in his Discography but you´re right K2 and Thelam and Louise have been played by him...

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-04-01 00:00:00
Yeah, I'm not sure who did the guitars. Whoever it is isn't credited on IMDb or anywhere else.

But if I had to guess, I would say it's probably Pete Haycock. It sounds similar to their other collaborations from around the same time (K2, Drop Zone, Thelma & Louise, etc.).

I've got so many random versions of this score I don't know what to do with them! All we need is one good release and we'll all be happy! With todays MP3 format you could sell the score for nothing. PLEASE release it. It would be a waste not too for such good work. I love the score but my favorite has to be the end credits.........unreal. well done Hans.

I am the fan club president for the Jeff Beck fan club. I've waited years for this precious tasty shred yet anthemic Jeff Beck session work done in 1990 brought out great by Hans Zimmer. Nice tasty fleeting blues lines on a couple oftracks too.!

This is one of best score for the kind of racing movies. Just, one thing would complete this version: The music used in the final race where cole win. What i hear, this cue was composed by Mark Mancina and it´s not included in this version or any other versions of expanded bootlegs. Please, team of remote control production, make a complete score of this movie and put this cue.

All I have to say is there is such a thing as supply and demand. If the fans want the Days of Thunder original score why not put it out there in the public domain.

I recently purchased the 'Escape to Victory OST' by Bill Conti, Bill is very reluctant to release his music on CD yet he did it. The CD is only 40 minutes long but I and other fans have really enjoyed it.

If you don't want people asking where they can get a copy of the Days of Thunder score then PLEASE release it officially. Give it a decent cover, remaster the sound digitally and make some money out of it. Why not???

I for one would rather pay £10 for it and get a nice shiny CD with a decent case and some pics inside than a scratchy low quality product.

Come on, you know it makes sense! ; )
