Score Music Composer(s): Lee Holdridge

The score music for the movie was written and conducted by Lee Holdridge and released on Cherry Lane Records in 1984. It was later re-released in 1999 by the Supertracks label (LHCD-02) for the first time on compact disc, as a promotional collector’s item. Use our search feature to try and locate a used copy.

Some of the music featured on the 1999 soundtrack promo release is not featured in the movie itself; however some of these tracks may have been created for use in the US theatrical trailer, including the dramatic "Mermaid On The Beach" and "Underwater (Version 2)".

The magical ‘underwater’ music has become synonymous with the movie and remains one of Holdridge’s finest works.
