Tarzan: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack is the soundtrack for the 1999 Disney animated film, Tarzan. The songs on the soundtrack were composed by Phil Collins, and the instrumental score by Mark Mancina. The song "You'll Be in My Heart" won both the Academy Award for Best Original Song and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media, while the soundtrack album won a Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album. For his contribution to the soundtrack, Collins received an American Music Award for Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist.

Tarzan was the first Disney soundtrack to be recorded in multiple languages for different markets, with Collins recording English, Italian, German, Spanish, and French versions of the soundtrack. Collins was assisted by composer Éric Serra to record and produce the French versions of the songs.

Commercial performance[edit]

The Tarzan soundtrack was released by Walt Disney Records on May 18, 1999. The soundtrack peaked at #5 on the Billboard charts during the week of July 10, 1999, coinciding with the film's theatrical run. The album was a major comeback for Phil Collins, and put him back in the public eye.[citation needed]

A promotion was held at the Disney Store. Customers who bought the soundtrack received a free and exclusive single of "You'll Be in My Heart". The soundtrack itself was labeled limited edition, including a holographic cover and an individual collector's number.[citation needed]

The album has sold 2,586,000 copies in the U.S. as of April 2014.[4]
