Snyder's Justice League soundtrack is filled with powerful
songs that reflect on some of the characters' arcs in
years of waiting, Zack Snyder's Justice League has finally
been released as it restored the director's original plans
for his story. In the four-hour cut, the plot follows
Batman and Wonder Woman putting together a team of heroes
to battle a coming threat from Apokolips. As the new members
Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg join forces with the other
heroes, it becomes clear that they will need extra reinforcement,
it comes to the composing of Zack Snyder's Justice League,
Tom Holkenborg a.k.a. Junkie XL has his score restored.
Like many plots and characters in the theatrical cut,
Junkie XL's role as the composer got removed as well.
Instead, Danny Elfman was brought in to re-compose the
theatrical cut's score.
not only is Junkie XL's score part of the 4-hour cut,
but there are also some perfectly selected songs that
relate to the various characters in the cast. While there
are a handful of songs that are played in Zack Snyder's
Justice League, all of them are very fitting to those
specific characters as it reflects a lot of the arcs they
go through at the time when they're played.
Here's every song that is played in the Zack Snyder's
Justice League soundtrack.
Ásgeirsson – “Vísur Vatnsenda-Rósu” - At the start
of Zack Snyder's Justice League, Bruce Wayne tries to
recruit Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman who was temporarily
in Westfjords. While he rejects Bruce's proposal to join
the team before taking off, the people who live there
begin singing Vísur Vatnsenda-Rósu which is an Islandic
poem that has also become a long traditional lullaby.
Cave and The Bad Seeds - "Distant Sky" - When it comes
to Lois Lane's arc in the film, it focuses a lot on her
trying to continue life without Clark/Superman after his
passing. When the film first re-introduces her, she is
seen getting coffee, which is where Snyder's cameo happens,
before going to the tarnished Superman statue memorial.
Distant Sky begins playing whose melody is perfectly capturing
the tone of Lois's current state as well as the world
after they lost the Man of Steel.
Dave and The Bad Seeds - "There Is A Kingdom" - After
Arthur saves someone from downing, There Is A Kingdom
begins to play as he's shugging a whole bottle of whiskey
and walking through a storm of water waves before jumping
back into the ocean. The song is a great allusion to Arthur's
future as the King of Atlantis.
Betts (performer) & Tim Buckley and Larry Beckett (written
by) - "Song To The Siren" - The film sees Barry Allen
and Iris West meet for the first time as their love story
gets teased in the Snyder Cut. But as Iris's car runs
into a truck, Barry sees it and manages to save her using
his super-speed. Throughout this sequence, Song To The
Siren plays as its theme is about embracing the love for
someone who may not feel the same as you do.
Crowe (performer) and Leonard Cohen (written by) - "Hallelujah"
- For the full credits involving everyone who worked on
this film, Hallelujah is performed by Crowe as there's
an emotional meaning for Snyder with this song. While
it was the song that was in the official teaser trailer
for the Snyder Cut, Hallejuah is actually a tribute to
the director's daughter Autumn Snyder who died from suicide
in 2017. According to Snyder, this was Autumn's favorite
song which was also sung by Crowe at her funeral, and
with the film being a tribute to her memory, Hallejuah
honors her through the credits too.
