Not sure if this is quite the right place to post these, but I ran across them a few months ago and I just realized that, as far as I know anyway, they've not been linked anywhere here before. I figured that some of you may not have heard these and thought that you might like to hear them too.

Two versions of McCreary's arrangement of "Mothra's Song" with the original singing by The Peanuts added. One has the speed of the singing changed to match McCreary's music and the other has his music's speed changed to match the singing.


I really love both, and couldn't tell you which I like better; but I can say for certain after hearing them, if I had had any doubt of that before, that the lyrics where the one thing that was truly lacking in Bear McCreary's version as far as I'm concerned.

I heard the lyrics of the Mothra song in my head while listening

Oh well. Guess I won't see the movie for myself and form my own opinion, I've basically already seen it in my mind from what I've read online and I know a lame duck when I see one. Time to whip out the 'ol 12 gauge

Okay, I know I'm asking too much of the Academy to do this, but wouldn't it be sweet if Bear's work on this film got nominated for best original score?

Wouldn’t they have to actually be original in order for that to work
