An interesting album arrangement given the 1994 album arranged the tracks into suites and it seems that's not happening here (and we all know how much hans loves his suites). Seems like it's going to hit every major note that the previous Legacy set does and then some.Does this mean that He Lives In You and Mbube are not new recordings, or at least not entirely new recordings?do you have Informations about a limited edition ?<br>(like BR2049, interstellar,...)it's a complete new recording1.      “Circle of Life”/“Nants’ Ingonyama” – Performed by Lindiwe Mkhize; African vocals performed by Lebo M; written and composed by Elton John and Tim Rice; “Nants’ Ingonyama” written by Lebohang Morake and Hans Zimmer; produced by Hans Zimmer; vocals produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>2.      “Life’s Not Fair” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>3.      “Rafiki’s Fireflies” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>4.      “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” – Performed by JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph and John Oliver; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>5.      “Elephant Graveyard” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>6.      “Be Prepared” (2019 Version) – Performed by Chiwetel Ejiofor; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Hans Zimmer and David Fleming<br><br>7.      “Stampede” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>8.      “Scar Takes the Throne” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>9.      “Hakuna Matata” – Performed by Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, JD McCrary and Donald Glover; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>10.  “Simba is Alive!” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>11.  “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” – Performed by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Luigi Creatore, Hugo Peretti, George David Weiss and Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams<br><br>12.  “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – Performed by Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Pharrell Williams; co-produced by Stephen Lipson<br><br>13.  “Reflections of Mufasa” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>14.  TBA<br><br>15.  “Battle for Pride Rock” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>16.  “Remember” – Hans Zimmer<br><br>17.  “Never Too Late” – Performed by Elton John; African vocal and choir arrangements created and produced by Lebo M; written by Elton John and Tim Rice; produced by Greg Kurstin; additional production by Elton John and Matt Still<br><br>18.  “He Lives in You” – Performed by Lebo M; written by Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin and Lebohang Morake; produced by Lebo M and Mark Mancina<br><br>19.  “Mbube” – Performed by Lebo M; African vocal and choir arrangements created and produced by Lebo M; written by Solomon Linda; produced by Pharrell Williams
The movie is like 30 minutes longer than the original so I don't think it can be the same all the way through.Hybrid did Hans do everything the same? or is there any difference in this score? Yes or no :DProbably not.Hybrid, I counted only 9 tracks from Zimmer. Is this the complete score or will there be a separate album with more music?Incredible work !, I admire you Hans Zimmer !.<br>Jaime Altozano (Youtuber music), he had a talk with you, and talked about interstellar music. I meet you more, thanks to his videos :)
The most colorful score by Ramin! I dig it!This is not a best soundtrack of Hans, but the theme "Gap" and the first two minutes for me are very good, no good....excellent.no :(Michael, that's my impression with some Zimmer scores: he composes a suite with the themes, hands the rest to his collaborators and supervise the work. But at the end the cue sheets will give us the information.Lorne did the great majority of the onscreen cues. Hans spent most of his time on this score writing the Moriarty Suite (which is longer than on album and has a few versions).
Is it possible to get full credit list for this score? I'll love to know which tracks Lorne worked in.Why soundtrack albums are made? Because most of the times a well edited album is a much better listening experience than the music as heard in the film, complete and chronological. At least  9 out of 10 cases I prefer to listen a well edited album. There are very few cases when a complete album is needed, in my opinion. The other thing is: I only have about 40-60 minutes patience for an album listen.<br>In Hans' case it's different sometimes because I really enjoy his suites and experiments.@iamtommie44<br><br>may i compare with mainstream music for a minute here. albums are important because putting one together is an art form on its own. the best albums are often not the ones with only the good tracks. but of course there are also those you buy because of track #2 or #3<br><br>in hiphop for example, mixtapes are a big thing. they seem like a freer album form. a way for artists to test new ideas and project directions. based on the response, those ideas would show up in albums. it's a nice way of testing things (or us lol) since our taste, especially in music, changes often. sometimes these artists want to see what works and what doesn't. i wouldn't mind buying experimental stuff from my favorite composers to be honest.<br><br>but anyways, dundirk is a very good album if you ask me. it's one of those that i can listen to in a loop and not get tired of. the tracks carry you along the journey. and by the time you reach the end of the last track, it loops right back into the first one...I have higher hopes for that than his normal work, he seems to do better work when not scoring big blockbuster action. (see The Mountain Between Us, one of his best scores)Such an incredible theme! Thank you Hans. When will it be available to buy?

I'm still not sure about Harvey 2-Face track. I'd have to see the movie again. I can't picture where it best fits in the film.

It has been more then 10 years since my very 1st Hans Zimmer "The Rock" cd. At present I own more then 50 Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Been a big fan of his, I must say not every of the soundtrack of nice. I can listen to 100 times of The Rock and maybe just once of the other not so nice one. And due to hectic work and other lifestyle, I have neglected the much of Hans Zimmer works since the superb last samurai. I watched the dark knight and was blow away by the music. It sounded zimmerish was what I strongly felt during the credits. Due to Dark Knight I enthusiastically search for Hans Zimmer news and that was what bring me to this website for the very 1st time. True enough it is Hans Zimmer work!! Rush down the next day afterwork to HMV to find it. OUT OF STOCK. Was very glad when found it in borders. The soundtrack is EXCELLENT and definitely belongs to one of Hans Zimmer BEST work. A pity I didnt watch Batman Begins last time, else will have definitely get the CD. Now cant find it in CD stores. I have listen to many soundtracks including Video game music. Hans Zimmer is definitely someone who can tickle your emotions Up and Down and all around with his music.

Someone....please......I can't find the track title for the End Credits.... Can someone help me find the track title?? I know very well it is NOT in track 14-A Dark Knight. Starts like how Batman Begins' End Credits but it's abit different than Batman Begins.

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-30 00:00:00
The end credits has the beginning from BB, something like Star Wars always having the same End Credits opening in each episode. The opening of the TDK End credits is the same as in BB End credits, but in TDK it is followed by The Dark Knight cue.

Ladies and Gents,

The Dark Knight is fantasitic.

"Your" sound has come a long way from the days of the original Bad Boys soundtrack with Mr. M Mancini amongst others that I could mention that you have been a part of in the many soundtracks in my collection.

Well done.

I am off to the shops to buy my copy.

Best Regards,

Loved this Soundtrack. the Batman Begins soundtrack is the prelude to this score. But this one pounds you with the chaos and emotion.

From begining to end this soundtrack owns. It's a Dark Knight indeed.

A Sentient Being reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-28 00:00:00
Joshua, maybe I can help you with my own track list. You can later check it to see if I got it right :

1. Why So Serious? (9:14) - The opening scene (bank robbery), shorter in the movie.

2. I'm Not a Hero (6:34) - The Hong Kong mission, preparing and capturing of Lao.

3. Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - Harvey and Gordon/Fox and Bruce/Gordon captures mob bosses.

4. Aggressive Expansion (4:35) - The very end of the movie/murders of Loeb and the judge Surillo/The Joker crashes the party.

5. Always the Catch (1:39) - The only track I can't place anywhere; it is possible it is not used in the movie (It contains both The Joker's theme and a fragment of Nycteris from Batman Begins).

6. A Little Push (2:42) - Batman interrogates Maroni/Harvey interrogates Thomas Shiff.

7. Blood on My Hands (2:16) - Bruce and Rachel

8. I Am the Batman (1:59) - Harvey publicly "admits" that he is the Batman.

9. Agent of Chaos (6:55) - Batman rushes to save Rachel/Rachel and Harvey talk/The Joker escapes/The explosion (Rachel's death)/Aftermath (Rachel's goodbye letter).

10. And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) - Bruce drives Lamborghini/The evacuation of hospitals/Bruce saves Coleman Reese.

11. Like a Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) - First I thought this cue was intended to appear during the Batpod chase but was never used; however, this cue was used, but in another moment. When Batman crashes into the Pruit building to save the hostages (clowns). However, only the first half was used, right before the appearance of the Batman heroic theme.

12. Introduce a Little Anarchy (3:42) - This track picks where the last one left off. It goes during the Batman's fight with the terrorists (doctors) and police, while using his sonar. It ends during Batman's fight with the dogs and The Joker.

13. Watch the World Burn (3:47) - Harvey holds Gordon's family as hostages/Tossing the coin/This track is abrubtly ended as the theme from the end of "I'm Not a Hero" enters.

15. A Dark Knight (16:15) - This track is pretty much divided throughout the final scenes of the movie. First, it appears when Batman shows his sonar gimmick to Fox; then, it appears when police search the bridges; then, during the ferries situation; it ultimately makes its appearance at the end of the movie, while Gordon and Batman discuss how to cover Harvey's crimes; when Batman sits on his Batpod in the final scene, the first blast from the beginning of "Aggressive Expansion" pick up; it is then followed by End Credits intro from Batman Begins.

You can see I oredered these track according to their appearances in the movie. I honestly hope this is helpful.

Cheers!

There is a score that is used over and over again in the movie, during the fight scenes with the joker, it's also in the preview. Does anyone know what that song/score is?

Best Batman Movie ever. Best score. The wait was almost unbearable but really worth it - the music so suits the film. Mr Zimmer & Mr Howard are to be congratulated on another masterpiece.
Thank you for making this happen

Heres my track order with where the cues are used in the film. Like i said, i need help with a few of them because i dont have them all.

1.Why So Serious? (9:14)-The opening bank robbery and parts are used pretty much through out when ever the joker is about to appear. (kinda like the jaws theme)

2.I'm Not A Hero (6:34) - The scene with gordon and the batsignal at the beginning and it spills over to when batman goes to hong kong to retrieve Lao from hong kong. Also the last few seconds of this track are used again at the end of the film when batman tackles dent off the ledge.

3.Harvey Two-Face (6:16) - pretty much when ever Dent is on screen ( the first time we meet him in the courtroom, when they arrest the mob, after his accident)

4.Aggressive Expansion (4:35) -the first minute or so is when batman is running away and the police are chasing him at the end of the film. The rest of this track are when the judge and commissoner are getting taken out and the joker attacks waynes party.

5.Always A Catch (1:39) ?????

6.Blood On My Hands (2:16) ????

7.A Little Push (2:42) ?????

8.Like A Dog Chasing Cars (5:02) ??????

9.I Am The Batman (1:59) ?????

10.And I Thought My Jokes Were Bad (2:28) ??????

11.Agent Of Chaos (6:55) When dent and rachel are kidnapped and batman and gordon are driving to save them

12.Introduce A Little Anarchy (3:42) The building fight at the end between batman the joker and the cops.

13.Watch The World Burn (3:47) when dent kidnappes gordons family

14.A Dark Knight (16:15) the first few minutes are when batman take responsibility for dents crimes at the end and i think the rest of the track is the end credits but im not sure....

Are the tracks on the album listed in the order they are played in the movie? They're listed in order in my iTunes, but some of them seem a bit out-of-place..

But about the music, everything's fantastic. I especially like "Like a Dog Chasing Cars;" you have both Batman's theme and the Joker's; the layout and dynamics of this score are completely blowing the soundtrack for Batman Begins out of the water. The harmonics are fantastic, as well as everything else about the album. Love it. Absolutely and utterly.

The "music" for the Joker is immense when heard in the movie! Bravo!

Ok, so ive seen the film now 4 times and im still having alittle trouble putting the tracks on the score with the scenes in the film. The majority i got, but there are some track titles that are alittle misleading. Does anyone know what cues are used in the different parts of the film.

This is a good soundtrack. I've listened to it almost every day for the past couple of days and I'm loving every cue in the album. Watch The World Burn is a great piece and reminds me of a darker version Am I Not Merciful? from the Gladiator score. Like A Dog Chasing Cars is a great action cue and A Dark Knight is so epic and so emotional. I am loving this album more and more the more I listen to it!

I haven't seen a comment by Hans Zimmer on this, but in two places of the score (tracks 2 and 16) there are subtle but all too obvious nods to Elfman's theme! Listen closely "A Dark Knight" between the timings 7:20 and 8:14. Between 8:04 and 8:14 is almost blatant.

Overall a great score overall, and this little touch makes it even more complete. You aknowledged the "jolly happy theme" that came before, Hans! :)

If the music is great in the movie for my, then i can listen this music isolated from the movie.If the music is bad she will be bad everyvere.This is not about this score.

This score is excellent... among the bests in Motion pictures...just like , superman, star wars, jaws & crouching tiger, hidden dragon. Well done, Hans Zimmerman is a musical Genius, anyway.
