Does anyone know the queue music, or movie scores they use at universal studios hollywood while waiting in the queue line for the backlot tram tour? Or the queue music while going down the escalator towards jurassic park and the mummy ride? Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

I've never been to USH, but my guess is that they use: Back to the Future, JAWS, Jurassic Park, Harry and The Hendersons, ET, Apollo 13. At least these are some of the scores they play at USF.
I am curious to know if anyone can name all of the songs at USF when you walk in the front gate. I know most of them, but there are a few I dont know....and one that gets me everytime.

I tend to hear BTTF, Beetlejuice, and E.T. the most at the front gate of USF.

Don't forget Jurassic Park.
Quick note on that, I watched Jurassic Park for the first time in over 10 years the other day (And then I got tortured into watching 2 & 3, all 3 in the space of 14 hours) but the attention to details Universal, and Steven Spielberg, placed when they made IOA is amazing. The Discovery Building is Virtually identical to the one on the first movie, even details like the Dinosaur skeleton's, the stairway, leading up on the right hand side, and even the doors.

Next time you go to IOA watch JPAC first and you'll see what I mean!

True Gareth, the Jurassic Park theme is used alot too, I just neglected to mention it because I always associate that theme with the entrance to JP at IOA.

The music used on the Universal Studios Backlot Tour in Hollywood is a combination of film composers from a variety of studios not just Universal.

They use specific music clips including Alan Silvestri, Jerry Goldsmith, and John Williams. To list them all would be impossible.

The most unrecognizable theme which is used heavily throughout Universal Studios Hollywood is the music to Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.. The score is by Randy Edelman.

i know that this is over two years old, but now they use TV's in the line to entertain the guests. the two hosts from "Access Hollywood" show different things about Universal Studios movies, the actors / actresses, history of the tram, etc.
