Danny Elfman Says Scoring ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Was Easy

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween (and a Christmas?) classic. But what really makes the film so great is its music. The Nightmare Before Christmas was something entirely out of Burton’s comfort zone. He’d never done a musical. However, Burton’s faithful collaborator, Danny Elfman, dispelled all of his worries and composed one of the most famous musical scores of all time.

With songs like “This is Halloween” and “What’s This?” which became immensely popular, you’d think that Elfman used some complex formula to develop the movie’s songs. It turns out he didn’t. The process was actually quite simple. Turning creepy Halloween-themed songs into happy Disney-like anthems went to plan better than Jack Skellington’s plans of turning Halloween Town into Christmas Town.
