I went to see Ice Age 2 the other day and enjoyed, in addition to the expanded scenes with Scrat, the mix of music. I always try to pay attention to the score and in one of Scrat's scenes I heard a tune I recognized. It was driving me crazy, of course, because recognizing a tune and knowing the name of it are two completely diffent things. It wasn't until I was on my way home, driving with that tune in my head that the name came: "Hunt the Squirrel" from Ernest Tomlinson's First Suite of English Folk-Dances. Singularly appropriate! ...and I won't even mention the suprise production number!
