I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? Iíd like to compare both!
I love Lorneīs music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the scoreas for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.
Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picassowhy his music always sound the same...if he doesn't have time why he keep scoring more and more films per year? is it all about money?Modern Warfare 2 is a lot in the album!<br><br>- It's Good Shit Lieatenant<br>- We're Dangerous People<br>- What Else You Got (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- God's Gun (Bad Boys Remix)<br>- We Ride Together, We Die Together (Bad Boys Remix)We're Dangerous PeopleCall of the Wild coming by Hollywood Records, that means, digital.
Bloodshoot coming from Sony ClassicalCan confirm is in the albumavailable in nz itunes store. on the cover its correct now....motion picture score.What was Hansí role in the treatment of Mantovaniís ďCharmaineĒ. It sounds like the original, but cleaner, clearer, & without the limitations of 50/60ís recording technology. Iíve been fascinated by this piece for 25+ years, as it seems almost a precursor to Jarre & even Zimmerís electronic music, while being entirely orchestral. Links to info appreciated.@Scorefan: You know what "Motion" means right? Motion picture = moving picture = movie. U either call it "Original Movie Score" or "Original Score from the Movie" or u call it "Original Motion Picture Score". But u can't say "Movie Picture" lol. Its just wrong or like Macejko said.. "a retarded mistake" ;-)

My best movie... plenty of emotions, colors and heat !
I've been living in africa while young (3 month till 9 years), and I can feel Africa with this movie like anyother one !

In The Lion King, African lyrics on the score (and background chorus/vocals in the songs) are not Swahili. Since Lebo M (who worked with Hans Zimmer) is from South Africa, lyrics are South African languages - isiZulu, Sesotho, Setswana.
I learned about these things from this website: http://www.lionking.org/~taabani/
It has a lot of interesting information about languages in TLK. :)

But most of the character's name and some words ("Hakuna Matata" and Rafiki's "Asante sana" song) are Swahili.

So, I think lyrics on The Power of One score is also South African languages.

Hi...I'm wondering if the lyrics, at least some of them,are not Swahili? Especially since as someone noted, the producer worked with the producer of Lion King, which definitely contains Swahili. Thoughts?

Absolutely WONDERFUL soundtrack, the music is hauntingly beautiful. Lebo M's vocals go hand-inhand with Hans' music.
Now to answer some questions I've noticed.
Unfortunately, there are NO lyrics to this soundtrack availible.
As to the language, its more than likely Zulu or Tswana or possibly Sotho (Lebo M speaks quite a few languages of South Africa, those are the three I know of).

Can someone tell me the name of the song used in the commercial "the power of one" which was aired in 1993 by Earth Communications Office http://www.oneearth.org/.

The music was produced by Hans Zimmer, and I am guessing it is from this CD, but I dont know.

You can view the commercial on youtube at

Hello everybody and sorry for my english!!! I watched "the power of one" (in italian obvously) and I think that's a spectacular movie. It makes me wonder about how to spend my life and how to react against our fears and unsureness.
I am looking for the lyrics of the soundtrack and I'd like to understand the meanings of that song. My e-mail address is unworthy_84@yahoo.it. If anybody could help me to find something about this I would be so happy. Thank you

To buy the soundtrack, try Amazon.co.uk. You can get it used for about 13 pounds (approx $26 depending on exchange rate) and 3 pounds postage

regarding the lyris to the southland concerto, just before the Boar prison guard beats morgan freeman to death, he asks freeman to tell him what they are singing, and freeman's answer is something like, "we will never bow, give them what they want, they are pigs, we will live on." that's just my very tired brain paraphrasing. best to watch the movie again and listen for that part. the part where everybody cries.

Has anyone else ever noticed that Hans Zimmer and Lebo M worked together for the theatre production of Disney's The Lion King as well? And not only that, but they sampled the women's choral part from Power of One's 'Woza Mfana' in The Lion King's 'The Lioness Hunt'? Clever, but it didn't slip past me!!!!

See if you can find the same thing!

If you've watched the film you will know the lyrics to the Southland concerto - Peekay wasen't lying you know! 'They run this way, they run that way, etc, etc.'

The film is highly enjoyable and moving - in fact I based 6 months of my life on it and moved to Johannesburg. Sorry folks, SA is nothing like the film these days - Apartheid has ended but inequality and crime remain rampant.

We are Australian/Kiwis..My husband and I are currently reading The Power of One and we are totally engulfed in the magical storytelling of Bryce Courtney. We now wish to have the soundtrack of the music composed by "Doc" and sung by the "different tribes" incarcerated in the prison where Doc was, for the length of the war.
