Wait! Hybrid Soldier, you've said on the page of the album for White Fang, that Toys were Nick Glennie-Smith's first work as additional music composer after K2 with Hans Zimmer. If it's true, that why his credit's not here?
And i want to know one more thing. Oh, my God! So many famous musicians: Anne Dudley, Enya, Peter Gabriel, Steve Howe (from Yes), Wendy & Lisa, Seal, Hollywood Studio Musicians, and of course, Zimmer, Horn, Bob Daspit, Jeff Rona, Ryeland Allison... How they're managed to bring together?
Nick never worked on that one, I said Nick's first work at MV was Radio Flyer.
And for how long will you continue acting like some overexcited puppy asking questions after questions which basically... no one will answer ?
Oh, i'm sorry! I'm just interested in all this things, mainly because i'm a musician. I never thought that i asking questions which no one will answer. But, yeah, i'm excited. And not only for Hans Zimmer.
No prob lol but slowwww down a bit !! :P
Yeah, that would be my advice too. Nobody minds you asking questions, I think, but if you ask like twenty a day the way you've been doing, then a) people will get annoyed, and b) it's less likely the question will even be seen, and ergo less likely that you will get a response.
Currently it's difficult to buy this soundtrack, but ZTT Records' MySpace has full song of "Closing Of The Year." http://www.myspace.com/zttrecords
And here's the lyrics. It was mostly completed thanks to the forum members :) http://www.hans-zimmer.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=5296
---- THE CLOSING OF THE YEAR (Written by Trevor Horn and Hans Zimmer)
If I cannot bring you comfort then at least I bring you hope For nothing is more precious than the time we have and so
We all must learn from small misfortunes count the blessings that are real Let the bells ring out for Christmas at the closing of the year Let the bells ring out for Christmas at the closing of the year
(Children chorus) Up on the knees of a soldier made of parts of wood, with wind in your hair Silver bells on a stolen reindeer as we race to the castle over there
If I cannot bring you comfort then at least I bring you hope
Now all the winter bells are ringing hear them echo through the snow And the children's voices singing on the streets so far below
This is a time to be together and the truth is somewhere here Within our love for people at the closing of the year
(Seal's solo) We'll walk innocent with all of the pain and all of the patience and all of the way and all of us right and all of us say Love one another We'll fly in the arms of time walk in the waves, never fall Don't fall (at the closing of the year) at the closing of the year
If I cannot bring you comfort then at least I bring you hope
I LOVE TOYS! I think that this is Hans Zimmer's best soundtrack! Ever! Nothing can top Toys, the most whimsical, quirky, fun and sometimes heart warming film ever made! And the Music Compliments the film greatly! I play Alsatia's Lullabye when I go to sleep, and I listen to it all the time! Excellent work, and I think the score for Toys is a credit to all involved, as is the film!
