This cd is a revelation. That Last Race cue is a dream come true to finally have. I have never looked forward to a commute to work before as much as I am looking forward to Monday morning. I am nuts.

This cd is a revelation. That Last Race cue is a dream come true to finally have. I have never looked forward to a commute to work before as much as I am looking forward to Monday morning. I am nuts.

Am I the only fan of this score who's not impressed by that Last Race track?

I'm disappointed in that Last Race track, I've never seen the movie, but I know that track was always hyped when talking about a release for this score. "You can't release the score without that cue, everybody wants it!" or "Mark Mancina scored it" I've heard many times. But now that I've heard it, I think its a very odd track and one of the weakest of the actions cues. First the production value is not equal to the music that precedes it. It sounds like different and cheaper sounding synthesizers were used, and they are at a lower resolution than the rest. Also the composition itself is not as interesting or as thrilling as other action tracks like 5 and 6 which is a shame because it's supposed to be the final climax.

Anyway I'm glad and shocked to have this release next to the shock value releases..Black Rain, Rain Man, Thelma & Louise...this is all really amazing.

Projectionist I am with you all the way... Guess my excitement over this release clouded my judgement. I do love the track, but it is def missing the talent of Zimmer. Mancina in pre-Speed mode.

From a FSM interview:

B: So why hasn't the good music from Days of Thunder even been released?

Zimmer: Because there wasn't any good music in it.


Have to agree with Zimmer on this. Sounds completely cheap and amateurish, even for an electronic score. Surprised so many are eager to own this. Glad it's available for those that love it though. Enjoy.

For me, it has that feel good vibe to it. That's the biggest reason. Gets my blood pumping.

This is an excellent score! Zimmer be damned, I love it, we love, and many thanks to LLL for the spectacular release!

It's fun music, but I understand why Hans Zimmer would say it wasn't good music. Most of the scores before this were more serious and dramatic stuff. What would have made Days of Thunder even better is if he has arranged longer suites.

Any particular reason why this wasn't (/couldn't be) included on the release ?

Perhaps the bootlegger stole the tape to post that video.

Good morning.

There is nothing in any of the documentation nor in any of the elements at Paramount or Mr. Zimmer's archives that contain information regarding any tracks called "end credits." The end credits use the song WRITTEN for the film that USES the theme.

Just another case of fanboy bs using bootlegs as the bible.

I haven't actually seen the film, so I don't know what the music in the end credits is. I was referring to the music itself , regardless of what those boot fanboys called the track...

It's not a song though, which I perhaps get the impression you might have thought it was (assuming you perhaps didn't listen to it ?!)

While it obviously uses (one of) the theme(s), I won't say for sure it's an original piece (written for the film), and if it's not, I'll stand corrected.

Just asked since it's one of my favorite pieces from Days Of Thunder. Or at least one of my favorite pieces which uses the Cole & Clair theme from Days Of Thunder wink

I can't understand why I couldn't remember this when I wrote that statement above, but this piece was actually included on some old Zimmer promo, so it's definitely an original piece. Either some unused/rejected piece and/or a theme suite I guess you can call it.

Why it wasn't/couldn't be included on the release still remains a mystery, if we can call it that, but regardless, it's not really important I suppose...

Well, Cole & Claire uses the theme from the song Lost In The Night by Peabo Bryson which never appeared in the film. But perhaps you knew that. Some if it is included on another track on the La La CD. But I agree that I find it strange that the complete track is not on the CD.
