About the music in Planes
Out this weekend is Disney’s latest animated film, Planes. The story of Dusty Crophopper and his dream to race around the world against the best race planes from all corners of the globe. Of course, Dusty is the underdog being that he is just a cropduster and is afraid of heights.
Musically, the film is mostly carried by the original music by Marc Mancina. The original score works nicely and must have been an interesting challenge as there are music influences from different parts of the world. The commercial tracks used in the film were a little less inspired. A selection of little known songs with no obvious connection between them.
It seemed like there were so many possibilities to make this soundtrack stand out even more. There were a few nice selections nonetheless including the opening song by Mark Holman and the indian song featured while Dusty and Ishani fly over the Taj Mahal (unfortunately not released however). But overall, we were hoping for more.
The full song list from the movie is now available below. Let us know what you think about the music used in Planes in the comments!
