Disneyland’s Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye - The Complete Soundtrack
Disneyland, California, USA
Run time - 14:12 (high soundboard quality; NOT a live recording)
From Disneyland.com: Enter the legendary Temple of the Forbidden Eye on a daring journey in search of unimaginable rewards. Deep inside the temple, you embark on a fast-paced thrill ride aboard a rugged troop transport. There are ominous signs of danger ahead, but with famous archaeologist Indiana Jones on your side, what could possibly go wrong?
Join a tour set up by Indy’s friend Sallah and see how he’s ingeniously arranged mirrors to avoid looking into the cursed eyes of Mara. But something is amiss, as tourists have started to mysteriously disappear. Indiana Jones went into the temple to investigate. He never came out.
Do you dare to discover the truth behind these alarming stories? Will you really be pulled into eternal torment through the Gates of Doom? Could legends about caverns of bubbling death, screaming undead mummies, erupting lava, evil wraiths and giant snakes really be true? As your expedition careens around precarious precipices and narrowly escapes collapsing bridges, you’ll wish you never dared to test the wrath of Mara!
The first appearance of Indiana Jones. This is when Harrison Ford stopped being that guy from Star Wars and became a movie star.
Not exactly a name worthy of a heroic archaeologist, methinks. It sounds like an insurance company.
“Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love! We got company!”

Nathan Fillion, you speak the truth.
I think the fedora is placed a bit too far back in this one, but he’s still majorly cute. And I suddenly find that I have an irresistible urge to pinch his cheeks.
You know, if I had children, I would sooner have you ask me to pick my favorite child because it would be easier to answer. Here’s a brief compilation of my favorite Indy moments; keep in mind, however, I have likely forgotten to include a few, if only because I love these films as a whole something fierce and am unable to be overtly selective.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
- The entire opening sequence. It’s the stuff of legend.
- Eye love you.
- Indy’s silhouette when he first enters Marion’s bar.
- When Marion punches Indy. I adore that man like nothing else, but he had it coming. I betcha you would have done the same.
- When Indy shoots the swordsman. I think if you’re an Indy fan, you’re required to love this part, yes?
- When Indy kisses Marion in the tent after he realizes she’s alive.
- When Marion jumps on Indy’s back after she runs into the cobra. I love his face while she’s squirming about. There’s an adorable sense of familiarity between them.
- The truck chase.
- "It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage."
- The way Indy asks Marion to kiss his boo-boos and make them better.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- I love musicals, so I must therefore love “Anything Goes.”
- The car chase with Chauffer Short Round.
- The poker game.
- Nocturnal activities.
- "You said to stand against the wall! I listen to what you say! Not my fault! Not my fault!"
- Indy’s epic bitch face after Willie opens the door to the spike room. BEST. EXPRESSION. EVER.
- The fight sequence on the conveyer belt.
- "You betrayed Shiva!"
- When Indy whips Willie around the waist and reels her in for a kiss. I will never not swoon.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
- The cut from River Phoenix as young Indy to Harrison Ford as grown-up Indy. Definitely the most goosebump-inducing scene in the entire saga.
- Lord Clarence MacDonald and his sniffle.
- Henry senior’s very first line: “Junior?”
- "I TOLD YOU" - bang, bang, bang, dead Nazis - "DON’T CALL ME JUNIOR."
- The bittersweet conversation between Henry and Indy on the zeppelin. I love its calmness.
- The tank chase. It’s my favorite action sequence.
- “Indiana, let it go.” It was not a coincidence that Henry chose this moment to call his son by his preferred name.
- But just as Dorothy said she will miss the Scarecrow most of all, the last scene is perhaps the moment I love most of all. There is just so much lore and legend packed into this one little part: the revelation and origin behind Indy’s name, a restored bond between father and son, and Indy and company riding off into the sunset accompanied by a stirring arrangement of John Williams’ iconic score. I am consistently left with a lump in my throat, one that physically and emotionally reminds me why I fell in love with Indiana Jones - and the magic of the movies - in the first place.
