    Re: Music From The Films Of Tim Burton

    I'm gonna cop to being a music score snob and admit that I avoid Silva Screen compilation CDs like this Tim Burton one. I buy plenty of original soundtracks as it is, including both volumes of Music for a Darkened Theatre which contain Danny Elfman's original scores, alternates and unreleased tracks. My ears usually get distracted if it hears a sound cue played differently, so the Silva Screen re-recordings don't work for me. For my tastes, if I really wanted to make a collection of theme music, I'm usually better off creating one of my own using the original tracks rather than non-originals.

    Another sweet soundtrack I'd recommend here is the soundtrack to Matthew Bourne's version of "Edward Scissorhands". I saw the show in LA last year and just got blown away by it, so that helped seal the deal buying the music.

    Re: Music From The Films Of Tim Burton

    Let me make sure I have it straight. The thread is about the music of Tim Burton movies and the poll is just about our favorite Tim Burton movie correct?


    If you want to get technical, my favorite Tim Burton movie is Big Fish. But my favorite Tim Burton movie NOT directed by him is Nightmare Before Christmas.

    My favorite ORIGINAL score of Tim Burton's would also be Nightmare Before Christmas, Big Fish, and Edward Scissorhands.

    Oh that's right he didn't direct Nightmare. That was Henry Selick, who I think also voiced the mayor. I forgot about that .

    But honestly, you can talk about anything Tim Burton related in here. I won't mind one bit .

    The thread was primarily created for the CD, but heck, I think it's pretty fun talking about the Tim Burton universe in general .

    Re: Music From The Films Of Tim Burton

    Nightmare will always be my favorite. It's my favorite movie so I'm partial and I don't care.
    The Ice Dance from Edward is so hauntingly beautiful it often brings me to tears
    I also have to give props to the score from Beetle Juice cause it's just crazy Elfman fun (in that vain so are the Wonka theme & the Oompa Loompa songs from Charlie)

    I love the song's "Halloween Town," "What's This?," "Kidnap the Sandy Claws," and "Jack's Lament." the most out of Nightmare's movie soundtrack .
