Please Help i need the song in the movie...

> Yes, it's different. Don't know where to find the movie version, though...

It actually isn't that uncommon to find the album and film versions of a cue to be different. This can be due to a variety of reasons. Sometimes its because the scene may have been re-edited after the music was recorded, so the cue is edited to fit the new version of the scene. Sometimes the director wants something different from what the composer delivered, and chooses to edit the music to his taste, often tracking in music from other sources or cues that he prefers. Sometimes the composer actually records multiple versions of the cue, and the director chooses the version he likes best for the film, and then the composer chooses the version he likes best for the album.

In any event, in all but the last case, the music you heard in the film usually doesn't actually exist as a recording because it was simply hacked and edited music from various places. I don't know about this case. Its been so long since I've seen Braveheart, I don't recall the music for the scene in question as heard in the film.
