Ha. Tricked you! No nightmare here, but rather, one of my favorite films of all time, Tim Burton's A Nightmare before Christmas.

Strangely, my iPod shuffle has seemed to have been in the seasonal mood lately, playing a greater ratio of songs from the film soundtrack, most notably: "What's This?," "Making Christmas," and "This is Halloween." The songs are composed and written by Danny Elfman who has gone from Oingo Boingo frontman to one of the most recognized score and soundtrack producers in Hollywood. You can almost guarantee he has done the scores for all of Tim Burton's films, but he has also worked on Good Will Hunting, Dead Presidents, Spiderman, Mission: Impossible, and the Men In Black films.

If you enjoyed the film, watch it again this weekend. Buy the CD, the music is wonderful and is great from October 15 through December 31, and pretty much the rest of the year, too.
