"Ponyo" uses Wagner's "The Ride of the Valkyries" in the scene Ponyo rides on back of her sisters.

When Disney released dubbed versions of older Miyazaki movies, Joe Hisaishi himself re-arranged the music for larger orchestra of Disney, and re-recorded them in Disney studio. The orchestra is larger and rich in English dubbed versions and in some spots, the music gives different impression. Enjoy both versions!

Joe Hisaishi teamed with Hayao Miyazaki and composed music for all of his movies: from "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" (1984) to "The Wind Rises" (2013), Miyazaki's last. He also did music for many other movies. They are nice, aren't they? Some of Hisaishi's compositions are released under his birth name "Mamoru Fujisawa" so look for them, also. There are "Symphony No. 1", "5th Dimension" etc. His "pure" music can be categorized as one of the minimalists.

This is one available from Amazon at the moment of writing.
