Writing Music: The Circle of Life11:00
I am a big fan of Disney movies, and especially of the amazing music in those films. I shared a few of my favourite Disney songs in Writing Music posts last year, which you can find here, here and here. Today’s piece is another great Disney song. This time it’s The Circle of Life from The Lion King. However, this isn’t the ordinary version from the movie but a breath-taking remix by African musician Alex Boye.
This remixed song has quite a tribal feel to it with the drums and other instruments in the background. It is a positive, upbeat song, with a feeling of determination in its strong beat. I think it would do very well as either inspiration for a tribe, or as a theme song for a character who has a dark past but who is pushing past it and not letting it drag them down.
What are you listening to this week? What is your favourite Disney song?
