“When destiny calls you, you must be strong
I may not be with you
But you got to hold on
They’ll see in time, I know
We’ll show them together
‘Cause you’ll be in my heart
Believe me, you’ll be in my heart
I’ll be there from this day on
Now and forevermore”

~Tarzan (1999)~

Tarzan is a story about the meaning of family, self-discovery, and individualism. Disney released this movie in 1999 and it’s still a poignant and emotional film. The soundtrack reflects that in its lyrics and melody.

Disney’s Tarzan Soundtrack

Tony Goldwyn plays the voice of Tarzan and Minnie Driver voices Jane. And unlike a lot of other Disney movies, the main characters don’t sing. With the exception of the song “Trashin’ the Camp”, most of them are background songs and aren’t sung by the characters. Instead, the songs are about them and their journey.

The man behind the Tarzan soundtrack is Phil Collins. He was the main guy throughout the film arranging, composing and singing the songs. Other musicians that also contributed to the soundtrack include Mark Mancina, Glenn Close, Rosie O’Donnell, and Paul Bogaev. Together, they provided a gorgeous soundtrack with the voice of Phil Collins throughout. Phil Collins brings in some deep and heavy emotions into the lyrics and the movie itself.

The soundtrack includes the songs “Two Worlds”, “You’ll Be In My Heart”, “Son of Man”, “Trashin’ the Camp”,  and finally “Strangers like me”. All of them seem to be pretty popular as covers though, “You’ll Be In My Heart” appears to be slightly more popular. Below is a list of fantastic covers of Phil Collins’s “You’ll Be In My Heart”. There are far more available on Youtube. I urge you to check out those ones as well.

Tarzan Cover Songs

Dan Vasc‘s vocal cover is gorgeous and channels the emotion and serenity from the original.

Luna covers Phil Collins’ song in Italian. Her beautiful voice is full of emotion allowing it to carry into the entire feel of the song.

kazukanda provides another awesome acoustic cover that allows his voice to be the central focus. It allows the listener to focus on the lyrics and the emotions they portray.

Sinnyw789 doesn’t change any of the vocals of the song, keeping Phil Collins’ phenomenal voice while covering it instrumentally. His drum cover is energetic and awesome. Together, it encourages listeners to tear up and to dance at the same time.

There’s something about Nick Pitera‘s voice that makes me melt. His voice is simply phenomenal in this cover.

Keifer Wiley‘s voice is endlessly sweet and soft, which is a perfect complement to the melody of the original song.

Peter Hollens together with Bryan Lanning creates a fantastic acapella cover using just their gorgeous gorgeous voices.

Let me know in the comments if this song makes you tear up!!
