Although it’s been exploited by the Hot Topics and Spencer Gifts of the world, The Nightmare Before Christmas is still an amazing movie with some of the best stop motion animation, great characters and, most importantly right now, fantastic music, courtesy of Danny Elfman (who is also the singing voice of protagonist Jack Skellington). Jack, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, stumbles into a portal to the North Pole and becomes obsessed with Santa and Christmas and decides that he and his fellow Halloween ghouls are going to take over the holiday, going so far as to send the terrible trio of Lock, Shock and Barrel to kidnap Santa. If you’ve never seen the movie, definitely check it out and listen to some of the best songs from the movie below.
“This is Halloween”
“Oogie Boogie’s Song”
“Kidnap the Sandy Claus”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
