Apart from being a great song from an amazing soundtrack to a good movie, it’s also thematically appropriate for today. This fun, well composed and very well performed track is a natural fit as the track of the week.
Hans Zimmer is one of the best contemporary composers, and his work in movies is impressive. I knew pretty early on that I wanted to include his work from the Pirates of the Caribbean as track of the week, and picking which one was fairly easy for once. It’s a very energetic track with amazing orchestration and great use of both brass and woodwind instruments.
Apart from music, another big interest of mine is movies. Naturally, music in movies is also something I’m very much into. I have a few favorite composers, one being Danny Elfman (I know, shocking, right!?). Of all the music mr. Elfman has composed, Alice’s Theme from Alice in Wonderland is one of the tracks I consider to be absolutely amazing.
