I could see it getting some kind of release down the line, its not uncommon for Directors Cuts to pop up years after a film has left theaters. What I dont see is them shelling out money to finish/add effects or whatever other touch ups may be needed.<br><br>My personal hope is that (somehow) they get Junkie involved to finish whatever score he started, just to hear his take.Years ago, Hybrid posted that James Newton Howard was in charge of "The Bat Cave" and people got confused since that cue is clearly Zimmer. Well here's James Newton Howard talking about that cue directly on a score podcast:<br><br>I had written what I thought was a really good theme, played for that moment when Bruce Wayne goes into the bat cave and all the bats come flying around. And I thought it was pretty good. And then the next day, Hans arrived with his kind of infamous ostinato with the two french horn notes, and that was pretty much the way to go. So it was a mutual effort on that movie, pretty much on every cue.<br><br>There ya go. "The Bat Cave" sounds like Hans because it is. lol. <br>I don't think WB release the Snyder Cut, because with the new way they take, it could affect the new movies. <br>But, i would like to see the Snyder cutWhere can I get my hands on this complete score version please - is it available for purchase anywhere?Would you be able to do a more accurate breakdown of the OST Hybrid? Since this seems to be based off of old cuesheet info.
Looking at the complete score for this listed here and the OST, there are a lot of credit inconsistencies between the two. Maestro aka Main Title is apparently HZ, LB, IH yet its listed as solo HZ. Kayak for One is listed as A, RA, HP yet here it's solo Allison. what gives?Can't seem to recall if Hans was ever considered for this project.... Mancina rocked it of course, but I just wonder what Hans would've done....Maybe something like Drop Zone?<br><br>P.S. A little sidenote: I recently saw STONE COLD again and honestly Sylvester Levay's score for the movie has to be one of the best "manly", "hardcore" action scores. IMO. So freakin' badass! I can't believe there's no official release. Or even a bootleg.... Levay deserves more recognition overall. Stone Cold in particular is an action score that we simply don't hear nowadays. And I really miss that sound. I'm sure most of you have seen the movie so you know what I'm talking about. If not, go see it ASAP. You gonna have a blast :)I don't know what it is but with every Star Wars score I'm kinda getting bored after a while.<br>But this one, it's just wooow. The musoc stays spectacular every time I listen to it. From the know  SW element in Reminiscence Therapy & I to The Maw to the new theme for Han, Chewie, Qi'ra, L3 & Enfys Nest.<br><br>It doesn't happen a lot a lot that a movke that I don't like a lot, some parts, but the rest was meh, that the score is still my number 1 of 2018 and one of the best of the last 10 years!!! Hatts off Mr. PowellDear Mr. Zimmer!<br>Recently, our mother showed us a newspaper article about you and explained proudly: "This is my Hnschen.<br>Our mother Rosemarie Tangerner born Lagger was your nanny, when you were 1 - 2 years old.<br>She often told us about her time in Deutschland at her parents' house and showed us pictures of her and you. Unfortunately, I can not insert the photos on this page, but I would have liked to show them.<br>My mother felt very well with her family and spent a nice time with them.<br>We wanted to buy tivkets for our concert in Graz, but unfortunately the concert has been sold out for a long time.<br>Maybe it is possible to get tickets for your concert.<br>I would like to surprise my mother with a reunion with you.<br>We would be happy to hear from you personally!<br>Lovely greetings from Austria<br>Ulrike TangernerTracklist<br><br>1.

This Isn't You<br>11. Hellboy<br>12. Rock Me Like a Hurricane (Spanish Version)
Snyder confirmed that his cut of the film is essentially done, its just up to WB to release it."For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views."<br><br>Eh, by that definition The Imperial March would also be a power anthem, and I'd question that (to put it lightly). I don't think popularity has much to do with a definition of a type of music really. Rather I'd say a power anthem is a bold, muscular, relatively simple and often rock/pop-influenced theme that builds up and gets bigger and bigger over time, the prototype being Hans Zimmer's theme from Crimson Tide. And Balfe has written plenty of them. Whether they're good or not is something that can be debated, but e.g. the opening track of PR:U definitely fits the criteria of a power anthem for me.Power Anthems!!!!!! Is this the 1980s again!!!im the first to love a great tune but we are in another decade now.<br><br>Talking of tunes , Balfes best is still Ohs Theme from Home.Balfe writes epic themes constantly<br>==================<br><br>Epic themes, yes.<br><br>Actual power anthems on par with Now We Are Free and My Name is Lincoln......No. In my opinion.but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion<br>=============<br><br>My point as well.
Practically every single one of his recent scores have had at least 1 power anthem<br>=============<br><br>Clearly we have a different understanding of what a "power anthem" is. For me, a power anthem is My Name Is Lincoln, The Launch, Now We are Free, Arrival to Earth, etc....A track that resonates with millions of people. Not just film score fans. But casual film fans as well. Look at the YouTube views for Now We Are Free and Arrival to Earth. Millions and millions of views.<br><br>None of the tracks in the Hurricane Heist score can compare to these power anthems. None. Same goes for 12 Strong, PacRim 2 and (lol) Lego Batman. Only 13 Hours comes close. And that's because Michael Bay is the type of director who loves and demands power anthems (and thank God for that). It's no wonder that some of the most famous power anthems come from his movies...<br><br>I'm not saying all of that to undermine Balfe. It's just my personal observation.Balfe writes epic themes constantly.Assassins Creed,Beyond Two Souls,Geostorm are just some examples.Track 1 of PR: U is a power anthem, Brothers from Hurricane Heist is a power anthem, 12 Strong is a bit iffy as a lot of them aren't full anthems and more like action cues that go on for a bit. But I would disagree on the bad themes, I really enjoy the Brothers theme from HH (best moments in the score is when it crops up) and the main theme from PR: U, but aside from that they're not his best works.Hope you keep the staff ratings though, its useful for me as a lot of the people here have similar musical tastes to me and it helps to find ones that I might like.i wouldn't say, that Pacific Rim Uprising, Hurricane Heist and 12 Strong have power anthems. all 3 don't have even good themes. they are ok and they are the best part in every score, but they are far away from good power anthems in my opinion.

There's a bunch of the african lyrics on here

http://www.lionking.org/lyrics/

...I just noticed that Pridelander already posted that hahaha. BTW <3 TLK and Hans Zimmer :)

And I have another website bookmarked on my old computer, it has a lot more of the African words on it. Unfortunately, I'm still in the process of resurrecting that stupid thing... I forgot to back up some kinda important music file and stuff, so if I happen upon the site again, I'll definitely post it ^-^

hi.. folks... to Pridelander... there is an additional ad zulu chant just as the lead female says the circle of life.. not the ingonyama chant.. and actually thats why i'm here.. i am also looking for the additional ad libs for the lion king songs that for some reason dont appear in the scores or lyrics... through my obssesiveness with the lionking.. and that we're putting on the play this summer... i have been able to fig out some.. but not all.. < i always thought it was swahili. :(.. prob cause Simba is swahili for lion.. so i just assumed that the other native tounges were swahili as well)... thanks for clearing that up barry.. Ingonyama is zulu for lion

if anyone knows the zulu adlibs please email them to me at T14309@hotmail.com.. cause i found this page by accident.. and'll prob have a hellova time findin it back

this is what i can remeber from under the stars

"We sangoma ngi velelwe
We baba ngivelelwe
We baba ngivelelwe"....

This one is truly got to be his greatest of all time. The Lion King was superb. Every track was absolutely gorgeous. I love the powerful theme right before the tempo picks up and the voices come in in King of Pride Rock. Perfect!

Hey, my question is does anyone have the lyrics for "This Land", "King of Pride Rock" and "Under the Stars"? I love how it sounds, but I want to know exactly what they are saying, not a translation.
By the way, HANS ZIMMER RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sylvos:
>the track called 'Hyenas' which was released on French version of the album but not on the US ones.

"Hyenas" was released not only on French version, but also on Japanese version, and German, Spanish, etc... It seems that all the foreign-dubbed versions have this additional score track, instead of Elton John's "Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait to Be King".

I think they should have put "Hyenas" (and more score) in all versions and removed Elton John's terrible (imho) songs... Blame Disney Records, who think that all customers love only pop songs and don't want any 'boring' score! :(


Oh but don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Elton John songs are bad. Actually I admire his songwriting works for TLK. These songs are catchy and enjoyable. And his own version of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is beautiful and suitable for closing the movie.
Though, his version of "Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" are totally out of place on this album. I always skip these tracks.

And honestly, I think all the Elton's songs would've been out of place in the movie if they were not arranged by those talented arrangers(Hans Zimmer & Mark Mancina) :)

Also in the Italian version of the soundtrack there is the track "Hyenas"...

A simplistic, yet very powerful and effective score. It's always been a personal favorite, and easily qualifys for the greatest animated film soundtrack to date. I really never would have guessed that Zimmer's trademark use of heavy percussion would fit so well in this genre. And somehow, it does, and it works wonders.

One thing that was interesting about this release was the track called 'Hyenas' which was released on French version of the album but not on the US ones. I wonder why they decided to do this.

One of the best soundtracks ever. I really enjoyed it when I heard it for the first time and since then I have been listening to it over and over again. I believe that this soundtrack really deserved to win the Academy Award. My favourite song is "--Can You Feel The Love Tonight"-- and my favourite instrumental song is "--This land"-- and "--King of Pride Rock"--.
