Barney's Great Adventure: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is a soundtrack with songs from and inspired by 1998 film Barney's Great Adventure and is Barney's seventh US album. It was released on March 1, 1998 being distributed under the music division of Lyrick Studios.

The soundtrack was soon re-released by Koch Records and HIT Entertainment on July 27, 2004. It was the first US Barney album to not be under the Barney Music Label.

The same year of the album's release, it commercially went on to peak at #136 on Billboard 200 during the week of April 25, 1998[3] making it Barney's fourth and final album to hit the chart.

Unlike previous and future Barney albums, it features a star-studded cast such as such as Bernadette Peters, Peabo Bryson, Sheena Easton, Jeffrey Osborne, Valerie Carter, Linda Ronstadt, Roberta Flack, George Hearn, Jennifer Rush, Take 6, Johnny Van Zant, Jennifer Warnes and the young Latina sensation, Gina.[4][5]


The composition for the film's title song came after hearing about a playdate that Jerry Herman's granddaughter had with a stuffed Barney doll. Herman watched as Barney opened up a world of imagination to his granddaughter. Sheryl Leach, Barney's co-creator, also encouraged him to write this song.
