Whedon has his particular tastes which are guaranteed to be more sensible than 'Anonymous' below. This was a case where Snyder was facing an uphill struggle and a personal tragedy. He left the project. Josh came on board and he does not think highly of the RCP school, as anyone with a sensible ear will do. So he hired Elfman who did Age of Ultron for him after Tyler copy-pasted himself too much. It's ironic that fanboys here lambast Elfman for not being Zimmer enough in scope while Tyler does whatever he does, sounding EXACTLY the same on all projects. <br><br>But it's also heartening to see that all of the good RCP composers like Jackman, Junk, Balfe are now going for scores that sound a lot like 1990s or 2000s - Silvestri (Jumanji), Jones (Alita), or Shore (Dark Materials), respectively.Did Holkenborg finish his score and have time to record it? Is there an actual score? It seems to me he got jettisoned early in the process when Whedon came on board. It would be surprising if he had time to record an actual score with players and an orchestra.I can't decide whether or not some of the things I want to hear from him should be in his new show or a new World of Hans Zimmer show.@Ds Omar is saying that this was the direction Tom went with / what the score sounded like not that he was fired because he didnít deliver the sound heís known for :) <br>Of course he was replaced after Snyder left the project. <br><br>And yeah citation is needed.Desperately hoping we'll hear something from Dune. He's said himself how excited he is to finally work on music for a Dune movie and turned down Nolan for it, and it will be out a few months before these shows begin.
The FYC came out for this. Unfortunately, it's missing two entire tracks from the film. An extended "Busy, Busy Berk", and the film version of "Furies Captured" (which at least had a YouTube upload of the alternate version). <br><br>Guess we'll have to hope for a complete/recording sessions leak for everything else.Will he come to Sthlm / Gothenburg sweden???https://www.  axs.com/why-we-need-a-chicago-med-soundtrack-album-in-our-li ves-112620<br><br>Why they never release this?!....Omar: Well tried, but Junkie XL was replaced after Snyder was fired and Whedon came in.<br>And just in case Snyder actually wanted another sound, he would just have told Junkie at the beginning instead of firing him after he departed himself :-pCitation needed
Zimmer and Djawadi are nominated for Grammys this year along with Hildur,Alan Silvestri,Marc ShiecmanTom's score for Justice League was basically a mix of Mad Max and Deadpool. Zack wanted to go with a different approach for the score and make it more "fun" than serious. He didn't want a Zimmer sound for the movie.I noticed that the other day as well on IMDB. I know thatís not always reliable, but that would be awesome if he was involved. Iíve missed the ďfunĒ side of Zimmer for awhile. The next couple of years hopefully produce a number of Zimmer classics.Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah.  Whoah. Space Jam2?! You arenít serious.I hope this one will leak very soon! A lot of great music that isnt released
Hybrid, is Zimmer really attached to Space Jam 2?<br><br>Will Hans Zimmer be coming to London in 2021 pls? Thanks MonicaWhy won't concert in Poland?! I love Hans Zimmer and his music and I was really waiting for it!! Last time in Cracow it was the best time ever for me! :(Isn't anyone except me wondering what kind of sound that 2-tone-pattern is? Is that something like ring-modulated strings? Or even FM? Sure it is something layered.Anyone own the 24bit FLAC version? I bought it expecting to here a difference between that and the mp3 version and they kinda sound the same to me. Just curious on if anyone else had the same observation.

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


Tayla-Rose2016-03-27 11:33:39
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.

Excellent film, with the first appearance on screen of Daniel Craig, playing some South African "Nazi Alike" military extremist... :D

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...

Where can I find this album at a reasonable price?

I just came back from a photo safaris at Tanzania and would like to use some of the music to create a slideshow.

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.

I love this album. It reminds me of a great film and a great holiday in Africa. It is permanantly on my ipod and very much worth the price on Amazon marketplace!

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!
God bless.
