The tracking of music from Spidey 1 Elfman had nothing to with whatsoever. The same for Young on #3. They both wrote original material for their installments, but TPTB liked the temp music from #1 for #2. As well as the temp music from both movies for #3. So they kept most of the temp music in the film. On the Spidey 2 score album you can hear some of the original material Elfman wrote before Raimi and the TPTB rejected it. Someone on YT posted the original music (by Elfman) from #2 to their original scenes 4 years ago. It's still up there.
You can also find the original music from #2 and (some of) #3 posted on YT somewhere.
