It’s always refreshing for me to hear a soundtrack that is not from the film score regulars like Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Danny Elfman, James Horner, Howard Shore, and others of the sort. For example, I thought it was great that Daft Punk was chosen to do the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. Today’s song of the day comes from Jónsi who was selected to create the soundtrack for the movie We Bought A Zoo. Jón Þór Birgisson, aka Jónsi, is lead vocalist and guitarist for the band Sigur Rós. They are a Post-rock band from Reykjavík, Iceland. Jónsi has a very distinct falsetto voice. Some of his songs were sung in Hopelanic, which is a made-up language of gibbish that fits the music.
The song “We Bought A Zoo” is also worth a listen so check it out!
