Awesome to see Elfman fans here!<br><br>My favorite stuff leans toward the earlier years, all the way from <br>'The Forbidden Zone' (w/ the Mystic Knights) <br>thru the first Burton films; Pee Wee, Beetlejuice, Scissorhands, etc. <br>(also including the first 3 Boingo albums)<br><br>I also love the Nightbreed score, even though the movie itself was pretty awful.<br><br>IMHO, Nightmare Before Christmas should have won Danny some awards, <br>as it was such a personal and original work.<br>I mean it was all Elfman, and it is such a great soundtrack.<br><br>I have often heard that even now, some of the snootier 'film biz' and 'serious music' <br>people are reluctant to give Elfman the respect he deserves, mostly due <br>to his lack of formal music training.<br><br>WHAT A BUNCH OF F*@ING CRAP<br>...<br><br>Anyway, othere faves are 'Sleepy Hollow', 'Wisdom', the T.V. stuff, and there are still many I have yet to hear properly.<br><br>I could go on...<br><br>This guy should probably have a thread somewhere, no? <br> ???
