"The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)" by Various Artists on iTunes

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

Amazing!

laxplyr5,

I think that this is one of the best soundtracks for any movie ever made. With musical masterpieces like Circle of Life and Hakuna Matata there is something for everyone

This rules
