It didn't really fit in with the Disney theme, but I also have a soft spot for the Requiem for a Drum guy.

Is there a Requiem trailer where the scenes are basically shown in reverse and it's set to Hall and Oates' "You make my Dreams Come True" ?

I like to play Lux Æterna while I'm cleaning my bathroom.

I was expecting the edit to show Simba's grief and horror as his tragic addiction to heroin eliminates his hopes to become a respected Lion King.

I've never liked this song for some reason. Much prefer Mansell's work on other soundtracks.

curious nu, I love the Moon soundtrack so much. I have the movie, but haven't watched it in fear that the visuals will detract from the sound*. Maybe one day I'll watch it. Last year my housemate and I would sit at the kitchen table, studying for our exams or writing papers, while a combination of Mogwai, GY!BE, The Fountain, and Moon would play. For weeks on end.

*I think I'm justified in this, because I couldn't stand The Fountain at all, although again the music is good.

I have a soft spot for this Requiem For A Piano
