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.

One of the top 4 best movie soundtracks!

I was 7 when this came out, and 25 years later, I still have the soundtrack on CD and love listening to it! It is one of the best movie soundtracks for me (the others being Forrest Gump, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Last of the Mohicans.) I guess I will have to eventually buy the songs for my itunes (since my 2015 Mac DOES NOT have a CD/DVD slot-seriously Apple, what gives on the no DVD slot?!?!?!) but for now will enjoy listening to the original CD in my car!!
