Disney Song #20: King of Pride Rock

To Listen: Click Here

The Facts:
  • Composer: Hans Zimmer
  • Year: 1994
  • Key: several

Heard In: 
The Lion King

We're up to song #5 from The Lion King, and this one's as emotionally intense as it gets, as we have Simba defeating Uncle Scar and triumphantly heralding the rebuilding of this kingdom.  Of all the Disney animated movies, The Lion King seems like the one that would have had the best chance at a Best Picture Academy Award, but surprisingly it wasn't even nominated.  1994 was a fairly strong class that included Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Quiz Show.  In hindsight, it should have at least gotten in ahead of the last two from that list.
