This soundtrack is cute and is mostly songs from Warner Bros. Cartoons. It has recently been remastered and re-released.
The opening track on the Sting's "...Nothing Like the Sun
" album called "The Lazarus Heart" was originally written as the movie's musical finale, at an early stage of the movie's production when the book's tragic ending was still in the script. When the studio ordered its default ending to be used at the film's end, in which Roger is alive at the end of the duel, however, the song was deleted from the script and ended up on Sting's album instead.
