The third song in our countdown is the first of the three new entries to this year’s poll. From Ball and Boe’s second number one album, Together Again, the song in at number eight is He Lives In You:
Taken from the stage version of Disney’s The Lion King, and also opening the sequel, Simba’s Pride, He Lives In You was one of Alfie’s choices for Together Again. Since his first child was born, Alfie has tended to choose at least one song per album for his children, so I’m wondering if this was the case for He Lives In You – I really should have asked him when I interviewed him last year!
He Lives In You was written by South African composer and musician Lebo M in conjunction with Mark Mancina and Jay Rifkin, originally for the album Rhythm of the Pride Lands, music inspired by the original Lion King movie. The song then went on to appear in the stage version as They Live In You (first act), before returning as He Lives In You in the second act.
