This Is Halloween- Danny Elfman
There is nothing more I love to hear and put me in the Halloween spirit than this song. It instantly brings back childhood memories and also makes me want to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. This song uses clever rhyming to show the many tricks and treats of Halloween Town. It’s what I would call a Halloween “carol” so to speak. The music is mischievous and energetic.
The Nightmare Before Christmas original motion picture soundtrack was originally released the same year as the film in 1993. The soundtrack was then re-issued in 2006 with a bonus disc that contained covers of songs as well as demos. All of the music was written and composed by Danny Elfman. Another album was released in 2008 named Nightmare Revisited that consisted of covers of the songs. I would highly recommend checking out the original soundtrack, it is one of my favorites.
