Forrest Gump Theme Song

Forrest Gump Theme Song

1994

“Hello, my name is Forrest, Forrest Gump.” Classic, and yes, I like that better than the chocolates quote. The 90s sure had a lot of good movies.

You know, back in my day, cool were those who could play this theme song on the piano.

The memorable theme from Forrest Gump was composed by Alan Silvestri. Silvestri is sought-after American composer who has done work for Contact, Cast Away, The Polar Express and Beowulf among others.

The theme is officially called “Forrest Gump Suite”; it lasts nearly 9 minutes. It was nominated in 1994 for the Academy Award for Best Original Score, but lost to music from The Lion King.

The song can be found on the top-selling official soundtrack of the film which sold over twelve million copies.

Below is the suite in its full glory.
