Most of the older songs included on the soundtrack to this animated feature are so well-known that they border on well-worn (Vangelis' Chariots of Fire theme has to be one of the most reused pieces of 20th-century music ever) but their feel-good quotient is also hard to deny. (Earth, Wind & Fire's "Boogie Wonderland" again? Sure, bring it on!) Still, it's hard not to wish the brains behind this CD had included snippets from the movie, considering it features the vocal talents of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, and David Schwimmer. (One of the soundtrack's draws is a cover of Reel 2 Real's early ?90s hit "I Like to Move It" by Sacha Baron Cohen (a.k.a. Ali G), who voices one of the characters. The track could well turn into the kind of kiddie hit inescapable at the coolest birthday party this year. The other big draw is "Best Friends," a catchy tune halfway between the Beach Boys and Belle & Sebastian that shows that composer Hans Zimmer can do lighthearted whimsy when needed.

I just cant believe the coincidence but I happened to find this link in google when I was searching for the xylophone song. I didnt know that the instrument was called 'xylophone' in google so I typed in 'madagascar soundtrack when alex dreams of steaks' haha. Managed to hit this site in the first shot. Went through the comments and what do you know - the first 2 describe the song that I am looking for. :D Cheers guys!
Can you tell me the name of the xylophone song in the movie Madagascar. This song is also played during the Genesis tour just before the starting of the concert. This was a inmens sound to listen it over a great set of speakers. I have enjoyed it at the movie and at the concert very much. It took me more than a year to put a link between the movie and the concert. This xylophone song stayed somewhere in my brain somewhere between my ears....

Zooster's Breakout is great! It perfectly matches with the movie. But I like the this track, because even the music, without the pictures, is funny...reminds me a funny machine, a completely senseless machine, with a lot of little mechanisms and wheels. The sound creates a great atmosphere :D (btw: I'm listening to the track, while writing these lines^^)
