The Fox dub of Tonari no Totoro was the first anime I ever saw as a child, and today is one of my favorite films of all time, animated or otherwise. Joe Hisaishi, defeating even Yoko Kanno as my favorite anime composer, did wonderfully with the music, which I also consider a classic -- no doubt owing to the fact that I grew up on the movie.
Among my favorite tracks are:
Track 9 - "Chiisana Obake" - in which young Mei meets the smallest Totoro and chases it around. It's a good sample of the complete "flavor" of the film, and is one of my more favorite scenes.
Track 12 - "Maigo" - the touching vocal variant of Track 16, "Mei ga Inai" which I also like. The words used to (and still at times) makes me cry, especially when remembering the emotional height felt at that point of the movie, and when I consider my own love toward my younger sister. "Watashi no daijina imouto: doko kashira"
Track 15 - "Tsukiyo no Hikou" - in which Totoro helps the seeds grow and takes the children for a ride on his top, over forest and field. This track includes the "Tonari no Totoro" theme and the "Kaze no Toorimichi" theme, which is present on the various other tracks, which are both among my favorite melodies.
Track 17 - "Nekobasu" - the jazzy catbus theme song. Who can disklike this playful and upbeat music?
Track 8 - "Okaasan" - Knowing the words for the vocal version helps -- it is an ode to the Mother of the two children, supposedly (from my point of view) from the elder child, Satsuki. It's another song I can personally relate to emotionally. "Itsumo kirei....

I have other Totoro albums, I love the character, but this CD is the one that is the actual music from the film. It is just great. The Japanese melodies are more apparent than in the film. It is sort of a jazz album with a Japanese twist. I recommend it, and it is definitely worth the price,

AS the previous reviewer said, it is definitely worth the price! Hauntingly beautiful and peaceful music. My two year old son loves the movie, and even more so the music. We listen to it as we play, and he will tell me which song goes with which scene of the movie ("this is when Mae takes a nap on Totoro!"; "this is when Mae finds the acorn!"). If you love the movie, this is the soundtrack to buy!

This CD is perfect. Every song from the movie, in order, is featured on this CD. They're all in Japanese, of course, and the CD is a great way to take the story with you anywhere without having to be in front of a television.

Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack for the 1988 film My Neighbor Totoro is as wonderful and exciting as the film itself. Hisaishi, who composed scores for Miyazaki's earlier films Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Laputa: Castle in the Sky, clearly improved with Totoro. While Castle in the Sky's score was good (and the expanded edition was fabulous), Nausicaä lacked the magic of his later works. And both these scores relyed too heavily on synthesizers. My Neighbor Totoro also employs synthesizers, but the style works much better for this film, giving it a bouncy, fun sound. Azumi Inoue, who performed "Carrying You" for the Castle in the Sky soundtrack, sings four songs on this album and vocalizes for one track. Her energetic, clear voice works perfectly for the film. Although the songs on this album are in Japanese, not in English, as some reviewers have already pointed out, they sound just as good if not better than the songs recorded for the Disney dub. (Personally, I think they are better.)

Azumi opens the album with the fun, march-like song "Stroll." This is followed by "The Village In May", an easy-going piece that plays during Satsuke and Mei's trip to their new house. As the exclamation mark in the title promises, "A Haunted House!" picks up the pace. The sythesizers and bouncy beats on this track are just plain fun, as are the soot sprite sound effects in "Mei and the Traveling Soot." "Evening Wind" is a much gentler, reflective piece, featuring a flute solo, lower woodwinds, and a harp in the background. "Not Scared" begins loudly and dramatically before leveling off into the soot sprite sound effects and the main Totoro theme. "Let's Go To the Hospital" and "Mother" are both lovely tracks, while "Totoro" is low and mysterious.

I was fortunate to find the soundtrack to one of my all time favorite anime films on Amazon. It's amazing to own a CD from another country. But onto the CD itself.
Like most of Studio Ghibli's output, the musical score helps the film make it awe-inspiring and My Neighbor Totoro is no exception. My Neighbor Totoro was the first anime that I saw, and it got me interested in anime. When I listened to the tracks, I was surprised to hear parts of the score that weren't even in the film. Which I thought was too bad, because they were brilliant. It's likely that they were originally part of some scenes that never made it into the final version of the film. There's also a song included that's not heard in the film itself (but the score of it is heard during the scene when the village is looking for Mei). Also included are longer versions of the opening and ending songs.
This is one of the best soundtracks I have ever listened to. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys My Neighbor Totoro.
