Disney’s feline fantasy was also the first collaboration between Tim Rice and Elton John. Combining African influences with Rice’s plainspoken yet poetic lyrics, the pair’s songs work just as well without visuals, whether sung by the cast—including an amazing Nathan Lane, who takes lead on “Hakuna Matata”—or John himself. (The cast recording of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is a particularly buoyant take on the Oscar-winning hit.) Portions of Hans Zimmer’s sweeping score round out the album with appropriately cinematic flair.
I'm very happy to see that Disney soundtracks have finally made it on the iTunes Music Store. So many classic songs from all their classic movies :)
yay Lion King!
Finally, the best movie ever now has its soundtrack on iTunes! couldn't wait to buy the entire thing. Doesn't it just make you feel happy inside? And re-live the good ol' days of kids' Disney movies? Such amazing songs, it deserves an immediate 5 stars!
A review with a score perspective
Regarding the score by Hans Zimmer, these are some of his best works. I'm not here to give some in-depth analysis, just to tell you that these are some of his finest and most original melodies. After many listens and several years, these are still some of Hans most inspired songs. Include these in the elite realm of Crimson Tide, the Prince of Egypt and Gladiator.
