Can't Get The Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea Theme Song Out Of Your Head?

The song Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea has absolutely, positively captured me! If the theme song from Ponyo also has you and/or your children in it's grip, read on to learn a bit more about it and both the original movie soundtrack and the score. You will even be able to listen to the theme song, On The Cliff By The Sea, again (if you need to) and to sing along with the lyrics.

"Maestro Joe Hisaishi's latest

score for Hayao Miyazaki,

Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea,

reinforces his standing as

one of the finest musical artists

at work today." ~

The Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea Story

The score for the movie Ponyo was written by Joe Hisaishi and represents the ninth soundtrack he composed with Hayao Miyazaki.

In Japan, Ponyo's theme song, known as Gake no Ue no Ponyo, came out before the movie. It was recorded by a duo who is known as Fujioka Fujimaki and an eight-year old named Nozomi Ohashi. When the movie was released, the song climbed steadily until it ranked 3rd on the Oricon Charts.

The English version of the theme song released in North America was done by Frankie Jonas and Noah Cyrus, the duo who voiced Sosuke and Ponyo in the North American version of the movie. The music also received a lot of media attention and positive reviews in the western world. However, it was not without controversy...some feel that the Japanese film was ruined by the 'Disney' treatment that it received on our side of the world.

Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea Reviews

Listeners are enthusiastic about the Ponyo soundtrack . They call the soundtrack breathtakingly beautiful and they praise the music team of Hayao Miyazaki and Joe Hisaishia. They call this one of the best scores of 2008 and a great musical experience. It is enchanted, restrained, imaginative. Catchy.

Lyrics to Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea Chorus

The English pop version of the song, as sung by Frankie Jonas and Noah Cyrus.


Ponyo Ponyo Ponyo

Tiny little fish

She's a little fish from the deep blue sea

Ponyo Ponyo Ponyo

She's a little girl,

She's a little girl with a round tummy.

      I love the movie! And I like the music too - but I think the lyrics are a bit silly. :-)
