Behind Inception‘s intense score is genius composer Hans Zimmer, who may have had a little inspiration. What you’re hearing is actually just a slowed version of French chanteuse Édith Piaf’s Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, which also doubled as the music played on the timer to signify the kick to end the dream. Zimmer, who also composed for Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, mentioned the song’s inspiration to the LA Times in an interview, but this video is proof in the digital pudding.
