For those of you continuing to look for clues and curiosities within Christopher Nolan’s Inception here comes one more this time taking a look at an interesting comparison having to do with Hans Zimmer’s score.
For those that own the soundtrack you’ll recognise the comparison music from Zimmer’s score as the first track on the disc, “Half Remembered Dream”. As noted in the video by YouTube user “camiam321,” the second piece is “Non, je ne regrette rien” performed by Edith Piaf, the music the characters in Inception use as their musical countdown for their “kick” back to reality.
Essentially, the theme to Inception is really nothing more than a slowed down version of Piaf’s song.
I thought it was from Jaws or something but.. I just shat bricks! Did Hans Zimmer put an idea in our head? *Inception* making us think this was a new unique score?
