The Muppet Treasure Island soundtrack album features an instrumental score by Hans Zimmer, with additional music by Harry Gregson-Williams.

The movie's songs were written by pop songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, whose hits include "On Broadway", "Blame it on the Bossa Nova", "Who Put the Bomp in the Bomp Bomp Bomp", "Just Once" and "We Gotta Get Out of This Place".

The movie offered Mann and Weil the opportunity to write theatrical music. Weil said, "We went for a Broadway thing here. When we began working with Brian Henson, we wrote the first song like a kid's song." That song was dropped: "We looked at the rest of the Muppet movies and saw how hip the music was. It was a challenge to write the songs from a theatrical standpoint instead." [1]

The film ends with a reggae number performed by Ziggy Marley, "Love Power". The song was released as a single, and promoted with a music video featuring Marley and some dreadlocked Muppets. [1]
