Michael Giacchino is one of movie music’s fastest risers. Just 10 years ago, he was the in-house composer for Lost and Alias. Now, he’s known for scoring Star Trek and almost every Pixar film since The Incredibles. Now, the 46 year-old maestro is showing off the lighter side of orchestral music.

As a treat for listeners of the soundtrack album for the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Giacchino has strangely named almost every one of his tracks after some sort of ape pun. John Williams’ score for E.T. might be one of cinema’s most iconic soundtracks, but it suffers from not having tracks names Monkey See, Monkey Coup or Aped Crusaders. 

Here’s the full track listing for the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes soundtrack:

1. Level Plaguing Field
2. Look Who’s Stalking
3. The Great Ape Processional
4. Past Their Primates
5. Close Encounters of the Furred Kind
6. Monkey to the City
7. The Lost City of Chimpanzee
8. Along Simian Lines
9. Caesar No Evil, Hear No Evil
10. Monkey See, Monkey Coup
11. Gorilla Warfare
12. The Apes of Wrath
13. Gibbon Take
14. Aped Crusaders
15. How Bonobo Can You Go
16. Enough Monkeying Around
17. Primates for Life
18. Planet of the End Credits
19. Ain’t That a Stinger

Excellent work!
