Musical Montage: Danny Elfman
Starting out as a member of Oingo Boingo, Danny Elfman has become one of the top film composers and, like Johnny Depp, a staple of Tim Burton movies. Elfman has contributed the scores to such classics as Beetlejuice, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Batman, Spider Man, The Simpsons and Men in Black. Listen to some of his greatest hits below.
“Breakfast Machine” from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
“What’s This?” from Nightmare Before Christmas (Elfman is also the singing voice for Jack Skellington)
“Tales from the Crypt Theme”
“Men in Black Opening Theme”
“The Simpsons Theme”
“Spider Man Theme”
“Mars Attacks! Suite”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
