|...To Die For|
|Title||"...To Die For"|
Composed by Hans Zimmer, "...To Die For" is an instrumental score featured in The Lion King: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
Initially referred to as the music for the stampede scene, "...To Die For" can be heard from when Simba first sees the wildebeest stampede to when he runs from Scar and his father's dead body. Many parts of the music were cut, such as when Scar knocks out Zazu and when Mufasa clings to the side of the gorge and pleas with his brother for help.
Much the same as its movie counterpart, the score heard in the stage musical has a similar rhythm and an almost identical tune. However, the main difference is that the stage musical uses more prominent vocals, as well as a wider array of instruments. In the original cast recording, the score is titled, "The Stampede."
- A variation of "Lea Halalela" can be heard at the end of the score.
- "...To Die For" was cut and edited for the official soundtrack. However, the complete score can still be heard in two separate parts, "Stampede" and "Mufasa's Dead."
