Don't Think About Elephants
Artist Hans Zimmer
Length 5:36

Don't Think About Elephants is a bonus track from the score for Inception, which was not included in Inception: Music from the Motion Picture. It runs for 5:36 minutes. The title is referring to a phrase said by Arthur when he is talking to Saito in his helicopter:

Saito: "If you can steal an idea from someone's mind, why can't you plant one there instead?"

Arthur: "Okay, here's me planting an idea in your head. I say to you, don't think about elephants. What are you thinking about?"

Saito: "Elephants."

The piece plays from the rotating hotel fight with Arthur up to when Fischer is shot by Mal as he is about enter the safe.
