The Wet Dream Before Christmas
By: Ghostkeeper
Date: 26 Jul 2010
Many of us like soundtracks for the way it works on the imagination. It makes you relive the movie in a way, puts the images and moments back in your head. For those, the Nightmare Before Christmas will prove a treat: It practically tells the whole story right here on Streaming Soundtracks or on your portable music device. If you've seen the movie once you can relive it at any time by spinning this soundtrack up. This is among Elfman's proudest works. One of the latest good works also, before he started experimenting with new types of music in the late '90s. The Nightmare Before Christmas has an unconventional soundtrack, but it is also happy, funny and quite awesome. Danny Elfman himself proves a talented actor in his lead role of Jack Skellington (among other roles). He knows best in which places he must keep up with the beat and in which he can exert some of the emotions of his character. And his evil laugh truly is frightening!

This album is quite strange; for a children's story the music is relatively dark, often using the lower range of instruments, and the humor is aimed at adults, but it is very clear that this is a children's movie. Kids like it (especially adolescents). I blame the lyrics for how fun they are ("I am the 'who' when you call 'who's there?'"), and the frequent variations in measure and in key at the strangest but somehow the most fitting places. The track Jack's Obsession is a clear example of this, and of Elfman's voice acting.

Though there is no title song of any kind, This Is Halloween functions as a key track for me since it is the most easily recognized as being the tune of this movie, and it comes back several times. Another special (and similar) track is What's This?. None of those can trump that hilarious track Oogie Boogie's Song however, though you have to like it. Ken Page really hits the spot with his voice acting in that song, especially after Sandy Claws asks him "Wh-what are you going to do?"; "I'm going to do the best I can..." And he breaks out in this incredible laugh. It's hilarious.

Several albums have been released of the score over time. None of them are a 'full-recordings' version of all the music in the movie, but the later releases do have some extra's. I have a release with 9 bonus tracks, released in 2008. Five of those are awful remixes, that would fit in the pop-genre I guess, if only they were actually popular. Don't torture yourself by listening to Kidnap the Sandy Claws by She Wants Revenge. The other four are demos, that Elfman made originally for the movie before any actual voice acting was done, with all voice acting done by Elfman alone. It's interesting to hear, but the actual soundtrack is better. I also read that some releases have different voices reading the intro and the outro, while mine has just a 15-years-older voice of Elfman.

So scroll on up, people, and pick one of your liking. Well done, Danny.
