5M12B "As Good As Dead PT2"
- For Part 1, see here.
"As Good As Dead (Part 2)" was first released as part of the complete film score, though the album was retracted after one day. In its brief publication, the track could be heard in two parts: "As Good As Dead (Part 1)" and "As Good As Dead (Part 2)". On June 24, 2014, The Legacy Collection: The Lion King was released, with "As Good As Dead (Part 2)" having been remixed and titled "Bowling for Buzzards".
The score was intended to be played directly after Timon and Pumbaa rescue Simba from thieving vultures, but it was instead replaced by the introduction from "We Are All Connected". It is the main theme of Timon and Pumbaa.
Although the theme was cut from the stage musical in the same manner as its film counterpart, elements of the score can still be heard throughout the musical, such as when Timon and Pumbaa battle the hyenas and free Zazu during the final battle.
