The original score for the movie WALL-E

From the Earth to the Stars and Back

  • Aug 7, 2008
With the release of WALL*E, Pixar still remains king of the animation universe. The film itself is full of vivid images, warm emotion, and enduring actions. When it comes to animated films, what is actually seen on screen is usually what stands out most to people. However, great movies (and all of Pixar's pictures are great movies) also have elements in them that many people don't notice but are also key in the film's success. An example of this is the music. In a Pixar picture, the music is just as important as the story that is told and the visuals that are seen on the screen. Most people may not realize this, but in addition to all the awards for visuals and animation, Pixar films have also been nominated for many "Best Song" Oscars. The soundtrack to WALL*E continues this winning musical combination.

WALL*E is one of the best films of 2008. I was moved by the film and was also touched by its musical soundtrack and score. I enjoy all of the vocal selections on the album, including Louis Armstrong's rendition of "La Vie en Rose". My favorite instrumental selections include the following:

#3 "WALL*E"
#5 "Eve"
#11 "First Date"
#29 "Rogue Robots"

From the opening song, "Put on Your Sunday Clothes", that is taken from HELLO, DOLLY! and played at the beginning of the movie to Peter Gabriel's inspiring "Down to Earth" that closes the film with the beginning of the credits, the soundtrack to WALL*E is a musical delight for both fans of the film and people who just enjoy listening to good music.

About this album


What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off?

Academy Award®-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios (The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille) transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named WALL*E. After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL*E(short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL*E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL*E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.

Joining WALL*E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.

....WALT DISNEY RECORDS proudly presents the WALL*E ORIGINAL SCORE by Thomas Newman. PLUS a BRAND NEW PETER GABRIEL single "Down To Earth".
