Merry Christmas, Batman!
By: LadyInque
Date: 21 Dec 2010
I feel like I should begin with a disclaimer. Almost every time I listen to Elfman’s score for Batman Returns, I hear the themes and textures from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Even though Nightmare was written later, I was familiar with that score first. Both films are about damaged, gothic-themed characters, and both take place at Christmas. For example, there’s a 4-note melody that permeates the Batman score and is exactly the same as the first 4 notes of “Jack’s Lament.” “Wild Ride” sounds like “Christmas Montage.” It sounds to me like Elfman was working out his ideas with the Batman score before committing to Nightmare, so I feel a little disappointed when I hear the similar themes, though I know that isn’t quite fair. (I suppose you could also say that Nightmare was a rehash of Batman Returns.)

The Elfman Batman theme we know and love from is back on this album, though it makes far less an impression than it did with the previous score. This may have something to do with Batman himself being a character on the margins of the story, while the two villains, Penguin and Catwoman, take over center stage. For example, the album begins with “Birth of a Penguin,” the score for the opening of the movie. “Birth of a Penguin II” is really the Main Title, and that’s where the Batman theme makes its appearance.

I think the best parts of this score are the themes and tracks that were written for Catwoman. They’re slinky, dangerous and off-kilter, like the character. “Sore Spots” and “Finale II” are examples of the romantic writing for Catwoman and Batman. As you can imagine, they’re not happy pieces, but I think they have emotional beauty.

The vocal track at the end was co-written by Elfman and performed by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It echoes the dramatic themes in the movie, but not the musical ones. I want to like it, but it leaves me lukewarm.

Request: “Cemetery,” “Batman vs. the Circus,” “Cat Suite,” “End Credits”
