Regular Zemeckis collaborator Alan Silvestri composed the film score with the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO). Zemeckis joked that "the British could not keep up with Silvestri's jazz tempo".
The music themes written for Jessica Rabbit were entirely improvised by the LSO. The work of Carl Stalling heavily influenced Silvestri's work on Who Framed Roger Rabbit.   The film's soundtrack was originally released in print by Buena Vista Records on June 22, 1988 and subsequently was re-released by Walt Disney Records on audio CD on April 16, 2002. The album is also available for digital download at the   I-Tunes Store.

"Why Don't You Do Right?" is an American blues- and jazz-influenced pop song — now a standard — written in 1936 by Kansas Joe McCoy
