Product Description

Lorsque les studios Walt Disney Pictures entreprirent la production de Nightmare Before Christmas, leur premier objectif était de complètement faire fi des acquis et méthodes qu'ils avaient établis depuis près d'un siècle. Pour cela, ils demandèrent au duo Tim Burton/Danny Elfman de concevoir une tout autre forme de cinéma et de musique. Grand spécialiste de partition décalée, Danny Elfman trouva ainsi sur Nightmare Before Christmas un sujet de prédilection pour ses fantasmes et ses délires. Prenant l'apparence de Mr Jack, il écrivit une œuvre où la dérision n'a d'égal que son sens délicat du portrait. Une B.O. atypique, à ranger parmi les meilleures réussites du genre. Didier Leprêtre

Is more fun than the movie itself. I take this in some respects as being an innate flaw in musicals, but also an innate virtue as well in other ways.
The songs on this CD each have a slightly different mood and feel to them, but each seems almost to represent a different style of music along the same basic storyline, almost like a celebration of all kinds of music used in the themes of darkling whimsy that Tim Burton is so famous for.
The music tracks containing no lyrics (there are only a handful of them, since this was the soundtrack for a musical, as I said,) are good, and set the moods when seen in the film, and are enjoyable by themselves, but like all "soundtrack music," they change mood in mid-number a lot.
The beginning and ending were not really music, but they allowed me to get a much better feel for what the story was really meant to be. Patrick Stewart is one of my favorite actors of all time, and he does a wonderful job telling those parts of the story in a style reminiscent of a grandfather with children sitting and listening to him on the floor, combined with the rhyming silliness of Dr. Seuss.
"This is Halloween" is a number that is so perfect at establishing its feel and mood that I consider it, to this day, to be my favorite "holiday song," even above "Carol of the Bells."
"Jack's Lament" is a beautiful, soul-filled song about how lonely it is to be on top and to know there's more to life, but to never experience it. Beautiful song that switches freely between pride and sorrow, inasmuch as those two emotions are entirely connected.

Danny Elfman's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" transcends a movie some people didn't like for its dark view of holidays--even if you disliked the movie, you may like the CD because the music is so devilishly clever and literate. Elfman has managed to winningly combine the joy and purity of Christmas music with a darker look at this treasured holiday. The lyrics are terrific (innocently sung but baldly truthful) and the music swoops, soars, and turns back on itself with astonishing ease and imagination. It's like an aural roller coaster in the best possible sense of that image.
Elfman sings the part of main character Jack Skellington (the "Pumpkin King," or master of Halloween) here, and he does a masterful job of conveying Skellington's yearning to do something different and important. Skellington goes after the Christmas holiday with all his energy and ends up botching it badly. Elfman manages to show us Skellington's earnestness as well as his dark side--this is no cardboard character, but a real (if not flesh-and-blood!) person, and we care about him. Catherine O'Hara does a super job with her brief work here as Sally, the Frankensteinian rag doll who falls in love with Skellington.
This is a terrific paean to the holidays in general, and Christmas specifically. With each listen, you'll find new things to admire and love about Elfman's nimble, imaginative music.

What's this? What's this?
there's music everywhere
What's this?
it's even in the air
What's this?
I can't believe my ears
I must be dreaming
Wake up, me, this isn't fair
What's this?
What's this? What's this?
There's something very wrong
What's this?
I really love this song!
What's this?
The cd's filled with
wonderful music
it makes me so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this?
What's this?
the songs reverberate off walls
instead of sounding dead
the music is beautiful
it's always stuck in my head
people peak in my window
and they can't believe their eyes
I'm singing along to this cd
in my car and inside
Oh, listen
What's this?
they're singing in harmony! It's bliss
it's wonderful and unique, it's inspired
It's brilliant, and tells a lovely story
of Halloween and christmas
What's this?
What's this?
I'm sure the movie you have seen, should hear
I mean, who would ever think
And why?
It's filled with tiny little things
They've got electric guitars with strings
it brings a smile to everyone
So, now, correct me if I'm wrong
This CD's fun
This CD's fun
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
bought this!
Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
so I listen to this track
No swears, no ugliness or screaming to scare you
Or ensnare them, only little cozy things
and funny things like a dreamland
Bought this?
