I hope someone can help in this.
I was reading the news about Michael Jackson's new album in a month and I remembered that exquisite trailer for "History" years ago! I remember that I was searching for the music that was used in that trailer and still haven't found it.


Well, I know that the music used from the beginning is Terminator 2, then the Main Titles from "Hunt for Red October".
But what is the music used from 2.59' until the end?
Does anyone know?
I seems to me that it's from a soundtrack too. I don't think that this was particularly composed for the trailer..

That's "Kaboom!!" from Hunt for the Red October. I'm guessing they haven't looked very far.

Edit: Oops. You probably meant the track AFTER that. I do not recognize that.

Yes, I was talking about the choir piece after that, starting at 2.59'.

as for the track previously that you said, I heard "Kaboom" but it isn't this. they may resemble a bit but it's definitely not it .

It's the last 40 seconds of the peice called THe Tradition of the Games from Poledouris's promo album Honor and Glory. (1996 Olympic Games). Sorry I can't link to YouTube right now, but a basic search will pull up the 5min peice that it was taken from.

I just listened to the piece, and it's not it.
this is what I listened to:


maybe it's another piece from this album?


edit: oh, if you look at the dates too they don't match.
Michael Jackson's History was released in 1995, and this is music from 1996.

There's no 'album' for Tradition of the Games (which was, as the 1996 date implies, written for the Atlanta Olympics), it was only on a promo compilation -- the rest is Poledouris OST stuff
There;s also a Silva rerecording of it. But either way I don't think the piece is Poledouris

well, it sounds like a Poledouris piece to me, considering his choral pieces..

Okay, I amend my previous statement. Listened to it again and it's not it. "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue."

Maybe it's a lost cue from Red October. Only Intrada may know for sure now.

Just wanted to bump this thread in case anyone has any other idea!

No idea, other than that it sounds like Poledouris. That Michael Jackson was definitely brilliant at staging himself as some sort of God! smile

No luck so far...

In addition to sounding like Poledouris/"Kaboom!" earlier on in the cue (~2:11), there's a definite flavor of the ol' "Dies Irae" in there when the chorus kicks in.
