One thing that needs to happen Zimmer should put all of is stuff on iTunes to make it available for everyone all the unofficial releases. It doesn't need to even be complete scores just some of the stuff from scores like this that never got released
Revenge of the fallen was not so bad the acoitn scenes were great I just do not know why u dumbass noobs hate the 2nd it had the best fight scenes in my opinion the 3rd is A O.K if u want to watch it go ahead and´╗┐ do so and contact me about what you think of the film ni my opinion the best ones (by acoitn) goes like this :Transformers Revenge Of The Fallen (TF2) :Transformers Dark Of The Moon (TF3) Transformers (TF or TF 1)
For some scores that sound like Contender sequels check out David Vanacore. He's credited in the score here but nobody's said anything about him. He writes for pretty much all of the big game shows and reality shows today.
The theme to Duel is particularly similar to The Contender. To bad they don't sell its score either. Check him out. I was surprised I'd never heard of him. (Listen to the "Reality Drama" samples!)
Apparently the only Vanacore albums for sale are Survivor and Eco Challenge on Amazon:
You're all idiots because this is an unofficial fan site. Hans Zimmer isn't reading these comments and going "Hmm I should listen to these guys." Even if he did, composers don't control the rights over their music, studios do.
Why are we idiots? This music inspires and is probably the most motivating score I've ever heard. If you'd like to listen for yourself, just go to imeem.com and search "The Contender." You won't be disappointed.
Where would you go to get a CD released then ? It's better to post that you want something released here, than nowhere. I mean, the studios won't read any of the mails, but if the wishes to have something release are posted nowhere, how would ANYone know someone is interested in this ?
Also, there is a chance that Hans or another composer reads these messages. Some time ago Trevor Morris (If I'm correct) asked to be removed from the site. And Disney asked to remove the samples of Pirates music. So people of the industry DO come here. Better try and fail than no try at all.
I just finished listening through streams of this album and let me tell you, every track is epic in every sense of the word. "Defeat (Theme 1)" is an incredibly emotional track and will remind you of another Zimmer work, "The Thin Red Line." Other great tracks are "Training" and "Victory." Both are so powerful and so moving, one can't help being touched by Zimmer and Jablonsky's work. The greatest track though, of course is the "Main Theme." Overall, one of the best albums ever and I can't wait to get my hands on it someday.
How many people would have to sign a petition before Mr. Zimmer releases this album? I know I'd be the first one on the list, because for this is one of the most moving albums to date. Just a thought...
Mr. Zimmer, why are you afraid not to release the soundtract for sale? A lot of us fans watched "The Contender" not only for the dream of one boxer to become a champion, but also for the beautiful music that you have so marvelously composed for this series.
For you not to release this wonderful soundtrack is a big disappointment of fans like me who are into inspiritional music. This music stirs not my soul but the souls of other people.
Here is my offer, release the soundtrack for a limited time(60 to 90 days). If a lot of people buy it, then you know you have a hit album that could easily go platimun Share this piece of music with the rest of the world. Besides, would Beethoven have decided to kept his music to himself? Would Elvis only sang his songs to his mother and no one else? Come on Mr. Zimmer, step out of your comfort zone and let the public have a copy of the soundtrack from "The Contender."
The Contender is such a great motivator. As an executive associated with sales people, I'd love to be able to play this song every week at our meetings to get people fired up. As an old boxer, this one song motivates me. It's kind of like the orginal song "The EYE of the TIGER" from Rocky movies.
