James Horner had a couple of other scores for other movies the same year as this like Braveheart (1995), Apollo 13 (1995), Jumanji (1995), Casper (1995) and Balto (1995). His score in this film is mixed with the song mystic's dream by Lorenna McKennitt and it sounds similar to his other scores in Red Heat (1988), Thunderheart (1992), etc. Horner was chosen in part by the studio who loved the score of Braveheart that he did for them and for Mel Gibson himself and also William Friedkin wanted to have a chance to work with Horner since he admired his work in other films.
