The best 40 seconds of music you will listen today!! 🙂
When I recently saw The Jungle Book, I instantly noticed its beautiful and atmospheric music. Music forms a big part of magical films such as this and John Debney makes the best use of the opportunity to flesh out a score that sounds both original and befitting to the scale and imagination of the story.
The BAM! moment, though, came much later, towards the very end. Just before the end credits you have our little Mowgli racing his buddies against the jungle and winning, at last. The music that accompanies this whole parkour sequence is out of this world, to say the least. John uses the Indian tabla rhythms to the best effect, adding that tropical flavor. But one can also not forget those superimposing violins, cellos and even French horns to boot!
Grand and nostalgic, this one!
(But why, god, why, is this only 40 seconds long!!!) Gotta spam that Loop button.
