Saturday Soundtrack: Dead Man’s Party (Oingo Boingo)
Posted on at • 0 Comments • • 369 views
So last week I went to Chris Nolan's final Batman film, and Dad and I were talking about Tim Burton's versions...which lead me to start thinking about Danny Elfman, who wrote the orchestral score for the first movie (you didn't know that? Yep, he did) which in turn got me remembering my Oingo Boingo CDs that I hadn't listened to in a while. The video below isn't the version that's on the two CDs that I have (both Dead Man's Party and Best Of), and it's been watched a lot so the quality isn't the best in the world.
But...Oingo Boingo? Synched to Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride? Perfection!
(I'll go see if I can't find some of the 1989 Batman score videos on YouTube. Some of them are kind of meh, but there was one fairly short bit that I really liked. The music is all rather signature "Danny Elfman", too - which suits, because the 1989 Batman film with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson was fairly well stamped with Tim Burton's visual signature as well.)
