What’s this? There’s more than one soundtrack to choose from?
Which movie soundtrack is the right one for you, or maybe all of them are?
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies – ever. I’ll be honest, I adore almost everything that comes from Tim Burton’s imagination and I think he is truly one of the most brilliant and creative minds of our time.
Great movies tend to have memorable amazing sound tracks to accompany them. With Danny Elfman working on your musical scores you’re almost guaranteed to be a success.
There are actually several versions of “soundtrack” CD’s (or digital sets) available for The Nightmare Before Christmas and they’re each wonderful on their own, but they’re each a little bit different. If you’re undecided on which one to go with I highly recommend picking up the Special Edition for the best of all worlds, having the classic songs and some creative cover versions in the extra tracks.

This album features covers by a diverse group of artists across different genres including Amy Lee, Kon, and Flyleaf. Listen as they put their spin on these great songs and show us that there is still plenty of Nightmare to revisit.
Personally, I have all three of the featured albums above and they’re all great listening 😉
Oogie Boogie’s Song – Ken Page With Ed Ivory – Oogie Boogie might be a creepy, but he brings a little jazz to the party!
Fun Factoid: Remember the song from Weird Science?
Of course you do, and it’s probably playing in your head right now as you read this. You might even be singing along 😉 That was also done by Danny Elfman and was a bit of a big break for his career.
