No GITS cannot be released, it's technically not possible... That's why Lorne leaked his part of the score himself...This is great news.Maybe Balfe’s scores to Ghost in the Shell now can get released.<br>Over 6000 people have signed the petition for Ghost.yea, that should be enough for meIt's comforting to get a reconfirmation that it's coming. <br>Now we'll just have to cross our fingers that the process doesn't take months like that one other release ;) <br><br>Which one will be out first: End Credits or X-Periments? :Pyes!yes!yes!<br>i can't wait!!!!!!!
And I can tell you Hans brought the matter to the very head of Disney Music... Everyone seems game to release it, just need to work out some technicalities...He mentions the Dark Phoenix second CD here. 20:33 onwards.<br><br>https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=mHmKZbUZiIA<br><br>"I did a film recently that got away, but we wrote 16 hours of music. We're actually fighting to get another CD released because the film didn't do anything, just to have it out there. Because you can't use again in something else, so it'd be nice to have it out there. So that it doesn't disappear into a rubbish bin".Life's Not Fair first part is similar > Tears of the Sun - Yekeleni Part 1 lolAny idea on the name of the song from the trailer?Honestly the biggest problem with this new version for me is the lack of new variants of the themes. They mostly just repeat verbatim Hans' original ideas with little to no innovation or changes made most of the time. <br><br>It also doesn't help that cues that did have wonderful variations such as "Nala Attacks", and "Nala & Simba" have been shortened to mostly cut them out. The worst cut being  for the ending to "Mufasa's Ghost" which originally peaked the emotion with that lovely variation of Simba/The One True King theme transitioning into the Pride Rock theme, all of which is absent now.
The comic con trailer for Season 3 looks excellent.<br><br>Really looking forward to next season & score.<br><br>I saw some early 1900 world. (One of the other parks?) Hope Djawadi does something cool with that.<br><br>Very excitedAfter Original Score<br><br>Tracklist:<br>1. Opening (1:33)<br>2. Class Start (0:51)<br>3. Tessa Meets Hardin (1:40)<br>4. Hardin in the Cafe (0:47)<br>5. Party Kiss (1:10)<br>6. Text in Bed (1:30)<br>7. Sotto’s Class (1:08)<br>8. The Lake Kiss (4:18)<br>9. Touched on the Dock (1:46)<br>10.

Main Theme (2:20)<br><br>Hybrid this score is good?It's indeed a shame so much mhsic is missing from the official album.<br><br>Love to hear more!how about credits for the LLL set then?I'm just curious why there's so much dead air in the FYC tracks. Cues like "Shut it Down", "Burton Visits Prime Minister", or "Megatron has Squeeks" just have nothing to them! <br><br>No themes to speak of besides one horn blast of "Quintessa", no interesting melodies, or rhythm, just dead electronics and weak-feeling drums and strings which really doesn't fit in with the series' style. Not even the fourth movies'.
Thanks Hybrid for explaining that. Makes more sense now.Yes it is because the FYC is horrible... The OST is what Steve & co wrote. The FYC is what came out of the Music Editing Factory, which I don't dig at all. Lots of micro edits & transformations Steve probably didn't even hear... lol<br><br>Real final mixes would look like the OST, not like the FYC...You gotta realize one thing, this score is US recorded so every new 15 min of score you release, you gotta pay back reuse fees. So it's very complicated & costy and that's why they released "only" 15 min of extra score.<br><br>If it was recorded in the UK, they could have released 2 hours of bonus tracks it wouldn't have cost anything more... :)<br><br>As for a chrono order, since all cues are mixed together in different tracks in the OST, it gets complicated... It works like that :<br><br>ARTHUR => Theme Suite + 5m30 + 1m05<br>KINGDOM OF ATLANTIS => 3m20-21<br>IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE => 1m01 + 1m04B<br>ATLANTEAN SOLDIERS => Theme Suite + 5m33 + 2m12<br>WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? => Theme Suite<br>THE LEGEND OF ATLAN => 6m39 + 4m23<br>SWIMMING LESSONS => 3m19 + 3m19B + 3m19C<br>THE BLACK MANTA => Theme Suite + 9m69<br>WHAT COULD BE GREATER THAN A KING? => 7m54 + 7m55 + 7m55A<br>PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD => 9m64 + 2m07<br>SUITED AND BOOTED => 8m57 + 8m59<br>BETWEEN LAND AND SEA => 7m51 + 8m61<br>HE COMMANDS THE SEA => 8m60 + 9m65<br>MAP IN A BOTTLE => 6m42 + 8m56<br>THE RING OF FIRE => 5m29 + 8m62<br>REUNITED => 9m68<br>TRENCH ENGAGED => 7m52<br>MERA MONTAGE => 6m43B + 6m48<br>HOME INVASION => 1m04 + 3m15<br>SAVING POPS => 3m18<br>AHAB WAVES => 3m17 + 2m06B<br>ASK THE SEA => 2m08B<br>OBLIGATION => 5m32<br>DUNES => 5m37-38Heitor Pereira, Satnam Ramgotra and Richard Harvey are credited musiciansSounds like a Zimmer version of the Top Gun Anthem to me.

This is a great soundtrack. I saw the movie years ago and went out and bought the cassette tape of the soundtrack. I didn't, however, get the CD version of the soundtrack. Now I only have a cassette version which I can't play on any of my audio equipment. Please, please, please is there any chance that this wonderful soundtrack might be re-released on CD? I am forever hopeful that one day I'll be able to buy the CD of this soundtrack and enjoy this great music again!

What are the lyrics for Rainmaker? "they run this way, they run that, cowards.." something like that

That is for Southland Concerto as explained in the movie before the concert when the lyrics were written. I am yet to find the actual lyrics of this song. If I do find them I will give you the link.

It's a made up language. reply Replies: 1 || 2008-08-04 00:00:00
I performed one of the songs from The Power of One in college and one of the fascinating things my professor told us about this soundtrack, is that the lyrics are all made up.
It's actually kind of strange, and I'm still not sure how I feel about that, but it literally does not have a translation.
Sorry.
But I guess that just means you can make up whatever lyrics you want.
Cheers!


Clare2013-04-03 19:06:28
That's nonsense - the songs were performed by local people in their own Zulu, not by a professional choir reading made-up syllables off sheet music. The only lyrics I can translate from Mother Africa are the repeating phrase "We sangoma ngi velelwe" which means "Oh healer, I'm in pain" - I know this because that phrase was recycled in several later Lebo M/Hans Zimmer collaborations including The Lion King, which DID have lyrics provided!

Your professor may have meant that the lyrics YOU WERE SINGING were made up, because Lebo M (who was responsible for the choir in Power of One) doesn't seem to have written down the lyrics, so all western performances are based on a phonetic transliteration. If you know Karl Jenkins's "Adiemus", those lyrics ARE made-up, just syllables that sound interesting performed by a professional choir.

Hans Zimmer at his very best. Complex, beautiful and moving. He rose to the occasion again for the Thin Red Line. I recon he has now lost interest in serious composing.

I saw this movie in English class today i cries, laughed, and sang along. I realized how good we have it these days, and how lucky i am. We don't have to worry about people just coming up to us and hitting us and being able to get awat with it. This was an AMAZING! movie and is now one of my favorites! if you havn't watched it be sure to. And if you have than im sure you feel the same as i do:)

oh my god,i didn't realise so many people from all corners of the world had such an interest in this film as i do.what a story of couarge,strength,honor,unity and much more.to read the book or watch the film gives me strength and courage for things i believe in.and the soundtrack makes a bad day at work just disappear when i listen to it on the journey home.i hope that when my son is old enough he will appreciate it as much as i do..that it gives him courage in this strange and cruel world we are now living in....

We sang the Penny Whistle Song at the Dept Education Annual Schools Sectacular at the Sydney Entertainment Centre about 5 years ago. It was a slightly cut down version (fitted into an African medley) and from my enquiries, the staff who transcribed it just wrote in the words as to how they sounded, so we had no idea if we were singing the correct words or not. Could those who have sung these pieces at school or college provide any publishers details if they were official versions please...

I'll add my voice to those saying that this is a wonderful, utterly underrated film because of the hope-filled message, the generally fine acting, AND the *beautiful* choral singing. I got hooked on South African choral singing when I saw the film Dingaka - the "Go in Peace" song is inexpressibly beautiful. I've bought both Dingaka (pity it isn't on DVD) and this one.

I'm trying to learn Zulu in hope of one day visiting SA, but while I can now occasionally pick out a word from the film, I haven't a prayer of being able to transcribe the songs. If the lyrics aren't available anywhere online, could someone who speaks the language/s possibly do the great service of transcribing the songs for us all, as Baba Thaba kindly did for Senzenina in his post 2005/08/11? I'm uncomfortably conscious of what an imposition even asking is, but I can't imagine any other way to ever get the lyrics. Lebo M doesn't apparently have a contact point other than through his agent.

Guys....Please!! As a South African who (rather) liked the movie and loved the soundtrack...do yourselves a HUGE favour. Read the book! It was originally written by Bryce Courtney (ex-SA). The book takes you on the journey of a lifetime and you will struggle to put it down. Once read, it will make the movie look rather mediocre. And best of al: in the book, little Peekay does not speak with a Cockney accent :-))

The Power of One is the best sound track I ever heard. I have been listening to it everyday for the last 15 years. I will never get tired of it. Mr. Hans Zimmer created a master piece.

Just finished watching the film for the second time and couldn't wait to jump onto the net to find more info about it.
Even as a Kiwi I can still feel the emotions of the African people through the television. It's given me inspiration in my own life. I hope to eventually visit Africa and do my part in terms of aid and development.

Bula vinaka, malo ni and Kia ora!
