The best Jurassic Park theme tune cover versions

These musicians were so preoccupied with whether or not they could create a wonderful tribute to the Jurassic Park theme that they didn’t stop to think whether they should. Well, Classic FM is glad they did…

Velociraptor plays the piano

Jurassic Park sung by goats

Try not to have flashbacks to the T. rex v goat scene in Jurassic Park  when you watch the version of the theme below. instead, reflect on the fact that adding goat noises to any tune makes it immediately a thousand times better than tunes without goat noises in them. You're so very welcome.

 Jurassic Park on melodica

It’s the first big reveal of Jurassic Park , the moment we cut from Sam Neill’s amazed face to a sweeping view of dinosaurs in their prelapsarian glory. And what better instrument to convey the majesty of a Brachiosaurus than the melodica? Perhaps not the most technically accomplished on our list, but certainly the most popular.

Jurassic Park on electric organ

Dr John Hammond, played by Richard Attenborough, is the brains behind the movie’s eponymous theme park. So an electric organ version (played on a Yamaha Electone, alas, not a Hammond organ) seems appropriate. At the risk of sounding sexist… ‘Clever girl.’

Jurassic rocks

This heavy metal version of Jurassic Park contains enough fossil-bearing rock to keep the most ardent palaeontologist happy. The face-melting begins at 1:40.

Piano Guys do Jurassic Park

This is how you turn John Williams's music into a truly beautiful cello sonata. And no-one got eaten by a dinosaur, so win-win all round.

Jurassic Park slowed down 1,000%

Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for 180 million years. It is difficult to conceive such a vast period of time. Perhaps this 1,000% slowed-down version of the Jurassic Park theme will help you with that.

Jurassic slide guitar 

This version of the Jurassic Park theme played on a hollow-necked Weissenborn slide guitar is mellow enough to chill the hungriest T. rex out. 

Jurassic guitar orchestra

A perfectly executed version of Jurassic Park by a Japanese guitar orchestra topped of with some excellent conducting. You can almost see the Velociraptors tapping their six-inch sickle claws to the tune.
