Hello, my fellow Zootopians! Prepare to get Z.A.P.ped! It's time for this week's edition of the Zootopia Appreciation Post, or Z.A.P. for short. Every Saturday, I'm gonna be posting a different Zootopia-related topic that we can all discuss.

For today's topic, I would like to talk about the Zootopia Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

One of the most important things in a movie is the musical score. It can evoke emotions, bring realism to the environment, and help immerse you into the story. Shakira, Michael Giacchino, and everyone at Disney have done just that with Zootopia.

The following is a list of tracks from the Zootopia Original Motion Picture Soundtrack:

# Track Name Artist
1 Try Everything Shakira
2 Stage Fright Michael Giacchino
3 Grey's uh-Mad at Me Michael Giacchino
4 Ticket to Write Michael Giacchino
5 Foxy Fakeout Michael Giacchino
6 Jumbo Pop Hustle Michael Giacchino
7 Walk and Stalk Michael Giacchino
8 Not a Real Cop Michael Giacchino
9 Hopps Goes (After) the Weasel Michael Giacchino
10 The Naturalist Michael Giacchino
11 Work Slowly and Carry a Big Shtick Michael Giacchino
12 Mr. Big Michael Giacchino
13 Case of the Manchas Michael Giacchino
14 The Nick of Time Michael Giacchino
15 World's Worst Animal Shelter Michael Giacchino
16 Some of My Best Friends Are Predators Michael Giacchino
17 A Bunny Can Go Savage Michael Giacchino
18 Weasel Shakedown Michael Giacchino
19 Ramifications Michael Giacchino
20 Ewe Fell for It Michael Giacchino
21 Three-Toe Bandito Michael Giacchino
22 Suite from Zootopia Michael Giacchino

Some score titles are references to pop culture and various phrases:

  • Grey's uh-Mad at Me - Grey's Anatomy (TV show)
  • Ticket to Write - Ticket to Ride (song)
  • Hopps Goes (After) the Weasel - Pop Goes the Weasel (song)
  • Work Slowly and Carry a Big Shtick - "Walk softly and carry a big stick." - (proverb; Theodore Roosevelt)
  • Case of the Manchas - "Case of the munchies." (phrase) I can't believe they got away with this phrase. 😆
  • In the Nick of Time - (phrase, used Nick's name)
  • Ewe Fell for It - "You fell for it." (phrase)

I have listened to the soundtrack many times and I get blown away every time! The people at Disney should feel very proud of themselves. I just hope that they can do just as good, if not, better in a potential sequel.
