Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - The Secret of the Ooze: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the licensed soundtrack to the 1991 New Line Cinema film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. It was released by SBK Records on March 26, 1991.

The atmosphere of this collection is much more kid friendly than the previous album. Songs like This World and "Back to School" feature various virtuous themes in their lyrics such as world peace, staying in school, and environmentalism. The most recognizable song in this collection is Vanilla Ice song "Ninja Rap," which he performed in the film.

Notes[edit]

  • The album version of Ninja Rap has a higher tempo than the film version.
  • The album version of "Awesome (You Are My Hero)" omits the chorus' background vocals heard during the film's end credits.
  • (That's Your) Consciousness can be considered the film's opening theme as an arranged instrumental version of the song is played at the film's opening credits.
  • (That's Your) Consciousness is often incorrectly listed as Consciousness (That's Your).
  • Cowabunga is the remixed version of the turtles theme with dialogue from the film. This time Raphael can be heard saying "Man I love bein' ah turtle". It is not to be confused with the song performed by Michelangelo on the turtles album Coming Out of Our Shells.
