The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Tracklist:
I loved the Lion King growing up, it is a true classic. Whoever says that it’s terrible is wrong. It is a story about growing up, and changes coming ahead. Thank you for putting this on iTunes.
One of the greatest soundtracks for a film. I’ve had it for years, and I’m never letting go. This soundtrack showcases what’s so epic and beautiful about The Lion King, and why most films pale in comparison. In terms of Han’s Zimmer’s score, which is somewhat represented on this album with the tracks “This Land”, “...To Die For”, and “King of Pride Rock”, the music is completely breathtaking and intensely euphoric. For me, the score for this film can only be bested by John Williams’ 1977 score for Star Wars, which is literally perfect. As for the musical tracks on this album, the music and lyrics by Sirs Elton John and Tim Rice in songs like “Circle of Life” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” are just as majestic as the score, while some tracks like “Hakuna Matata” and “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” are more upbeat and loose than the more serious tone of the others. Then there’s “Be Prepared”, which kind of sticks out like a sore thumb on the album with its dark tone and maniacal themes, but still manages to find a place amongst the other tracks. The rest of the songs on the album are covers of “Circle of Life”, “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King”, and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Sir Elton John. The best out of all three of these is the last one by far, and is my personal favorite song on the album. Overall, this album is just amazing in every way, and I’d encourage every fan of the film to check it out.
This is the best one. The 2nd movie Simba’s Pride is not great. The music is alright but the movie is better. This one is different. Great classic movie with a great soundtrack. Definitely worth it if you are a fan of The Lion King like me.
