Synopsis

Amazon.com
To answer your question: no, there's no "Hakuna Matata" here. (Did you really expect one to accompany this straight-to-video sequel?) But that's alright. Ladysmith Black Mambozo (on two tracks), Angelique Kidjo (who contributes the album's best original song, "We Are One"), and a duet between Kenny Lattimore and Heather Headley account for the starpower here, and all are strong. But the real essence of this collection is the African-flavored pop of tracks like "I Want to See the Moon," on which both your children and yourself might be introduced to some great new sounds. (There's a great, if slower than you'll be accustomed to, version of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," too.) As both a soundtrack and an introduction to an entire sound, Simba's Favorites is a success. --Randy Silver

CD Reviews

So moving and so cool!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I LOVE the songs from Simba's Pride! Even though I don't own the CD, I love the songs. My favourite one has got to be We Are One. I love it. it is really moving. I made up my own version of it! when I was writing a fanfiction, with new characters, the mother, Sarsha, was explaining to her son, named after the great king Mohatu that he doesn't have to change the way he is to be king, he can be himself. this is how it goes.As You go through life
You'll see
There is so much
That we don't understand
And the only thinng we know
Is things don't always go
The way we plannedBut you'll see everday
That we'll never turn away
When it seems all your dreams come undone
We wil stand by your side filled with hope and filled with pride
We are oneCan I still just be me
Even though I'm the king
Do I have to change?
Do I have to change my ways
What would my friends say
Would I still be the same?You can still just be you
WE are one just us two
You don't have to change a thing
The best of kings stay how they are
But deep inside your heart
You will find when you see
We are oneWe are one you and I
We are like the earth an dsky
One family under the sun
All the wisdom you lead
All the corage that you need
You will find when you see
We are onelike it? I didn't at first. but now i do. I love the lion king movies so much it still makes me cry when i watch it... and the thing that makes me like them so much are the songs, but fave will always be We are One, nobody can ever meak a better song then that. never."
A CD For Children And Adults Of All Ages!

"A while back my friend told me about this CD. I wasn't too intrested because I don't like listening to most childrens tapes unless I'm going to enjoy listening to them on long rides in the car. She popped her tape in and and I absolutely LOVED the songs! They are intended for children but I've found adults love to listen to them too! The songs don't have a fast beat to them nor a slow beat pretty much in-between. Definitely a road trip winner! BUY IT! You won't regret it! :)"
